Like dogs, computers need attention or they will begin to run more slowly, fetch the news sluggishly, and chew up all of your favorite CDs. Tame man's best mechanical friend with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $60 worth of refurbished Apple products and repair services at The Orchard in Chandler and Mesa.
The Orchard gathers bushels of Apple technologies, equipping patrons with refurbished Macintosh computers, laptops, accessories, and expert repairs. Armor keyboards ($39) with protective skins ($15), which guard against coffee spills and help machines sport rouge without looking awkward. A laptop hard case ($30) stores notebooks safely, and protective laptop bags ($30) aid business on the go. Mac hopefuls stare longingly at a lineup of used and fully refurbished MacBook laptops ($599+), all covered by a standard warranty. The Orchard's motherboard mechanics also repair an array of Apple ailments, including screen repair to mend cracks from ill-advised Skype head-butts ($65/hour, with broken computer diagnosis for $20).
