Similar to other refurbished Apple devices, the company assures that their quality is on par with the devices sold on shelves. But are they worth buying?As seen on the official Apple refurbished store, the available MacBooks and Mac Airs have their prices up from around $1,000 to $2,000 each. Their specs and built-in storage are also good picks as they have up to 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 which is good for processing intensive programs like large business apps and video games. However, their brand new prices on Amazon may cost at a similar price which somehow defeats buying refurbished MacBook with these available.

Worthing united kingdom
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi Arabia issued an unusually strong rebuke of the U.S. Senate on Monday, rejecting a bipartisan resolution that put the blame for the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi squarely on the Saudi crown prince and describing it as interference in the kingdom’s affairs. It’s the latest sign of how the relationship between the royal court and Congress has deteriorated, more than two months after Khashoggi was killed and dismembered by Saudi agents inside the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul. The assassins have been linked to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.U.S. Senators last Thursday passed the measure that blamed the prince for Khashoggi’s killing and called on Riyadh to “ensure appropriate accountability.” Senators also passed a separate measure calling for the end of U.S. aid to the Saudi-led war in Yemen. In a lengthy statement early Monday, Saudi Arabia said the Senate’s resolution … [Read more...] about Saudi Arabia Rejects U.S. Senate’s ‘Interference’ in Kingdom

Sport by Press Association 29/11/2018, 4:31 pm FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Send us a story Sign up to our Daily newsletter Highly-rated fast bowler Jofra Archer will become available for England selection in the first few months of next year after the eligibility criteria was relaxed. Archer was born in Barbados to an English father but he did not arrive in the United Kingdom until after his 18th birthday in 2015, necessitating a seven-year residency period under the previous regulations. Despite holding a British passport, that meant he would not have come into contention for England until the winter of 2022. But the England and Wales Cricket Board announced the residency benchmark would be brought down to three years for male and female British citizens from January 1, 2019 – as long as they had not played as a local in an overseas competition during that time. The move, designed to bring the ECB regulations closer to those of the International Cricket … [Read more...] about Jofra Archer edges closer to England debut after ECB relax eligibility criteria
BETTORS need to keep an eye on the weather before wagering their hard-earned cash at Hong Kong’s Happy Valley today. For over 90 per cent of the season, racing in Hong Kong takes place on a good to firm surface, but when the rain comes, it’s all change. Last week for instance, both at Happy Valley and Sha Tin, form book students were throwing their arms up in the air with despair! During racing at Happy Valley a sudden downpour of biblical proportions turned the surface from good to yielding, and it was a similar scenario at Sha Tin last Sunday. Some jockeys were coming back into the stewards’ room and reporting their well-fancied horses, who had been sunk without trace, couldn’t act on the rain-softened surface. With rain forecast in the city this afternoon, it will be well worth monitoring the weather on the TV screens for any update. One jockey who won’t mind the rain, having had to suffer similar conditions in the United Kingdom, is young Irishman … [Read more...] about Hong Kong Horse Racing Tips: Clipperton out to E Master rivals for Fownes at Valley
