Fall: It's Time for an Apple

.




.

I just found an online article on TIMEApple Holiday 2014 Lineup, where they showed Apple's latest gadgets.   Mind-blowing how many devices are offered - just in time for Christmas.  It reminded me about a funny post on Google+ after the last Holidays, listing the family gifts:  "My wife got an iPad, my son an iPod and my daughter an iPhone and IPaid ..."

Comparing Prices Pays ...
Comparing the low prices on Amazon.com for Apple computers and what I paid two months ago in a FutureShop in Canada, I really regret, not to have done my research, even though I order a lot from Amazon usually.   It could have saved more than $200 by ordering online, not to speak of the lousy service and arrogance customers experience at some local retail stores.  Or take the latest Apple iPhone 6 Plus: ordering from Amazon will save you a whopping $950 !!!  Plus free delivery.  See at the end of this article.

MacBook AIR Laptops 
There are two base models to choose from in the MacBook Air line: an 11-inch and a 13-incher, last updated in April of 2014.  The 11-inch model fits into my handbag, and weighs only 2.4 pounds. However, for $100 extra, the 13-inch model has a higher-resolution screen, three additional hours of battery life, and an SD memory card and DVD slot.

iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C
.

iPhones
You have four iPhone models to choose from, running from FREE with a two-year contract, to $499.
.




The iPhone 6 Plus is Apple’s biggest phone with a 5.5-inch screen. Going this big and expensive gets you a higher-resolution screen than the iPhone 6, optical image stabilization, and longer battery life.  On the low end, the iPhone 5C comes in five colors and is available with 8GB storage. A solid choice as a free phone.

MacBook PRO Laptops
MacBook Pro:  Each model is less than three quarters of an inch thick, the 13-inch MacPro is weighing 3.5 pounds and the 15-inch 4.5 pounds (better processor, double the RAM, double the storage, and higher-resolution screen with a better graphics chip).

.

iMac All-in-Ones 
Apple’s all-in-one desktop line were last updated in September of 2013, with the entry-level model added in mid-June of 2014, and the Retina 5K model was added in October 2014.
The Retina iMac, has a fantastic high-resolution screen, a quad-core Intel processor, a faster graphic chip and a faster 1TB hybrid hard drive.

iPod

Great selection: there is the newest iPod touch with more fun than ever. It has an ultrathin design, a 4-inch Retina display, a 5MP iSight camera, iOS 7, Siri, iMessage, FaceTime and much more.  Then there is the iPod nano and iPod shuffle or an iPod classic. iPods are starting at only $49.  
.




Lots of Gift Ideas!

Did I mention Apple TV and the fast selection of Apple accessories?  Apple TV is providing access to the iTunes Store and iTunes Match, it also enables you to beam audio, video and games to a TV from any iOS device via AirPlay, or you can pull and live-encode video from a PC or Mac.  Find more gadgets, such as a protective iPhone case, a stylish MacBook bag or a desktop cable organizer for Apple fans on Amazon's website, with pages and pages of Apple products for dedicated fans.
