Best Buy, Amazon and others host first sales on Apple's all-day power MacBook Airs

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Having caught up with initial demand for its all-day power MacBook Airs, Apple this week is teaming with Best Buy to host the first official sale on the new notebooks. The move has triggered copy-cat sales at other top resellers, which now yield the lowest prices yet on some models.

MacBook Air


Best Buy's sale, which runs through July 20th, includes free shipping and knocks $50 off 11-inch MacBook Airs, up to $64 off 13-inch MacBook Airs, and $200 off a 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro. Amazon, MacMall, and B&H quickly matched pricing on the 11-inch models, as can be seen in our Mac Price Guide (portion also below). The result is the lowest prices yet on Apple's two standard 11-inch MacBook Air configurations via MacMall (1,2) when using the links in our guides and applying Promo Code APPLEINSIDER01.

Similarly, those same models bundled with 3-years of AppleCare protection (AppleCare Price Guide) are now offered at their lowest prices yet from B&H (1,2), which matched Best Buy's pricing in addition to extending its exclusive AppleCare discounted pricing. Other highlights from the sales include Apple's 2.5GHz 13-inch MacBook Pro for $999 ($200 discount) from Amazon and Best Buy, and a 2.5GHz 13" MacBook Pro with Retina display (8GB,256GB) from MacMall for $1,385.59 ($313 discount).

* The 3% discount is available only when ordering online and online orders are processed in the order they are received.

* MacMall only collects sales tax in CA, IL, NY, TN, MN, GA, NC, WI, yielding additional savings for most shoppers.

+ B&H Photo only collects sales tax for orders shipped to its home state of New York, yielding additional savings for most shoppers.

It's false to say that not collecting sales tax on behalf of the customer results in "savings", as these are still technically due as "use tax" (or something similar).

Not that states regularly enforce this for consumers.

If you have kids going to college or schools or if you are a student yourself, you will have a better deal on apples educational pricing which includes discount and 100$ iTunes card as a part of the back to school promotion.

Could be that the COGS are doing better than expected after they caught up with demand and they decided to push for more market share while the PC manufactures are really struggling. The sale is a pretty small amount though either way.

Thanks for the FUD.

These places have lower prices year-round.

This article gave point (to me) that they could set MacBooks airs up front in morning and still be running on battery at night.
