I don’t want to get into a protracted discussion of whether higher-cost Apple items are “worth the money” compared to their Windows counterparts—people have Strong Feelings both ways and I get that—but if you’re an Apple type and you’ve been waiting for a great deal on a 13″ Air, I’ve got a deal for you.
See, I was just looking at Best Buy’s Deals of the Day (that’s a decent $40 toaster oven there, if you need one) and then I clicked on the 4-Day Sale link towards the bottom. The first deal that pops up on that page is the latest 13.3″ MacBook Air for $800. That’s $200 off, which is basically unheard of. It’s not a refurb or an open box, either.
Personally, I tend to hit the Apple Store directly for refurbs, but if that’s not your jam (or you need, say, a graduation gift…?), this is the deal to beat.
