Cyber Monday: Apple's sale, $110 off MacBook Airs, Office for $80, Fusion for $18

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Apple on Monday kicked off its Cyber Monday sale, leaving much to be desired. Meanwhile, the company's resellers continue push the envelop on Mac pricing, knocking hundreds off of new Macs while lopping another $10 off Office 2011 for Mac and $60 off VMWare Fusion 3.0.

Apple's Cyber Monday Sale

Though not much to write home about, Electronista offers a rundown of Apple's Cyber Monday sale, which offers between $5 and $40 off a dozen of so third-party accessories like speakers, headphones, iPad stands and musical keyboards.

MacBook Airs

By teaming up with Apple authorized reseller MacMall, AppleInsider is proud to offer what it believes are the best prices hands down on MacBook Airs, combining exclusive 2% off coupons with the reseller's already reduced pricing for instant discounts of up to $110 on the 13-inch models and $81 on the 11-inch models.

Both the 2% discount coupon and MacMall's Cyber Monday pricing are instant savings, meaning no rebates are required and the prices you see on the seller's website -- and in the price guide below -- are the prices you pay. The combined promotions offer the 1.40GHz 11-inch 64GB MacBook Air for $950.59 ($50 savings), 1.40GHz 11-inch 128GB MacBook Air for $1,117.19 ($81.81 savings), 1.86GHz 13-inch 128GB MacBook Air for $1,205.39 ($93.61 savings), or a 1.86GHz 13-inch 256GB MacBook Air for $1,489.59 ($109.41 savings).

The exclusive AppleInsider coupon is activated when using the links in this article or the price guide, below, only. [Please note that during the process of adding the MacBook Air to your MacMall shopping cart and proceeding to checkout, it may appear as if the 2% discount falls off. It will however reappear on the final checkout page before you confirm your order.]

Other Macs

Meanwhile, MacConnection continues to offer the lowest prices on the 13-inch white MacBook ($150 off), MacBook Pros (up to $240 off), iMacs (up to $180 off) and Mac minis (up to $100 off). MacMall is extending the deepest discounts on Mac Pros (up to $500 off) and B&H Photo now has the lowest price on Apple's 27-inch LED Cinema Display ($48 off):



AirPrint Printers

The first five printers to support Apple's AirPrint wireless printing protocol for iOS devices -- all of which are made by HP -- were popular items on Black Friday at Amazon. Since then, B&H Photo has slashed their prices on each of the models and currently offers the largest savings across the board. The reseller, however, is currently out of stock of all five models, meaning new orders will not ship until B&H restocks. As such, Amazon remains the best positioned to ship the printers immediately at the steepest discounts.

Office 2011 for Mac and VMWare Fusion 3

For Mac Software, Amazon has lopped another $10 off Microsoft Office for Mac Home & Student edition, selling copies for just $79.99, a savings of $40 and the lowest price we've seen. At the same time, VMWare has discounted direct downloads of Fusion 3 to $39.99 from $79.99 while MacMall is offering a rebate that brings the retail boxed version to just $17.99 (a $52 savings).

No iPod deal round-up? They are Apple products, you know.

Amazon is running good iPod deals today.

This deal was for an extremely limited quantity that was sponsored by eBay. It has since ended and those few that were sold don't deliver till the middle of December. But I will look into these deals in the future and make sure we include them. I wasn't aware of the promotion this time around.

I think headline should say $110 OFF MacBook Airs.

Still pricey though, compared to other places.

Apple's discounting concerns me. With these prices, we might see their average pre-tax profit margin drop from 28.4% to 28.395 or maybe even 28.39! This does not bode well for stock holders.

Do you use MagicJack?

The default settings will automatically charge your credit card each year for service renewal. You will not be notified or warned in anyway. You can turn auto renewal off.

Frankly, who gives a crap? Most people buying Apple computers don't care about Apple's stock price; I know I sure as hell don't. They care about getting a quality product.

Seriously, how many people care about the stock price of a company when they are buying their products? Now I have a few shares of AAPL, but I don't even really keep up with it -- don't really care. I've made a bit of money off it, and that's nice. But I don't go around worrying about how each and every sale that Apple and its partners put on will affect the bottom line.

Apple is a consumer-oriented company and this move only helps consumers with a lower point of entry for Apple products. Good for them!

MacMall's selling the loaded (256, 4, 2.13) 13" MBA for $1749, only $50 off the regular price. I don't see a way to get AI's discounts on that configuration. Can it be done? How? Or does anyone have a better price on that model today?
thanks

Just a heads up but I followed the link on AppleInsider for the purchase of the $17.99 version of VMWare Fusion at MacMall.com. Eight hours after my PayPal account had been charged MacMall could not locate their own product and I had to send them a copy of the link to their sales department who tried to sell me another product instead. The "sales rep" didn't know what I was speading to her about since they really didn't have my order nor could they explain their inability to look up the MacMall Part#: 7938980. After talking with a myriad of "customer service reps" I finally had to file a complaint with both the BBB and PayPal (PayPal immediately credited the $61.01 (yes, that's the charge from MacMall.com and yes I realize that there was a mail in rebate but the math still does not add-up)... CAVEAT EMPTOR!

No. It doesn't. Elitist mindsets are why people hate Mac users.
