Best Buy Drops Prices On All Macs, New Models Coming Soon?




In what might be a move to clear out current inventory to make room for the upcoming line of Ivy Bridge Macs, Best Buy has slashed prices on all current generation Macs. Every single machine has been reduced in price, and while most discounts aren’t astounding, the extra $100-$200 saved on a new MacBook, iMac, Mac Mini, or Mac Pro, might be enough to entice customers who can’t wait another minute for a new Mac.

These type of discounts usually don’t happen without some involvement by Apple. It’s not uncommon for Apple to notify vendors of expected supply shortages before a transition to a new product line. Apple is expected to release new Macs this summer that utilize Intel’s new Ivy Bridge processors, so buy with caution.  You can purchase the discounted Macs at your local Best Buy, or online.

Here’s a break down of the discounts you’ll find online:

    Apple’s are a set price so it’s fair game to assume that all Mac models will be replenished this year, I’d say early summer

    Why is the $939.99 MacBook Air not in your break-down list?????

    Actually Best Buy has been running these prices for months. I work for an authorized Apple reseller that is very price-competitive. Our buyers have been beating their price buy a few bucks on all the models listed (and a few that aren’t) for at least six months. If you you look at Best Buy’s ads during that time they mention “great prices on Macs”, they just cant list the sale price or they would be in violation of Apple’s MAP rules for resellers. While I do think new Macs will be coming soon, this is not an indication of an imminent refresh.
