Yesterday we ran a deal for the biggest discount we had seen to date on any 2015 MacBook Air (it’s still alive, BTW). At that time we mentioned how most discounts on these models have been modest (about 5%). While that’s still true today, we have discovered that Adorama is sweetening these prices by throwing in some freebies and offering a mail-in rebate on AppleCare bundles.
Below you’ll find Adorama’s VIP Exclusive pricing. To be eligible for these discounts you’ll need to sign-up as an Adorama VIP. Registration is free right now and honestly has been since as far back as I can recall, but apparently it usually sells for $149. After registering you’ll be eligible for these 2015 MacBook Air prices:
- 11″ MacBook Air 1.6GHz/4GB/128GB (MJVM2LL/A): $829 (Reg. $899) – $70 off
- 11″ MacBook Air 1.6GHz/4GB/256GB (MJVP2LL/A): $1,044.99 (Reg. $1,099) – $54.01 off
- 13″ MacBook Air 1.6GHz/4GB/128GB (MJVE2LL/A): $949.99 (Reg. $999) – $49.01 off
- 13″ MacBook Air 1.6GHz/4GB/256GB (MJVG2LL/A): $1,139.99 (Reg. $1,199) – $59.01 off
The above listings are all standard configurations. Adorama also has a slew of custom configured MacBook Airs at a discount as well.
All of these deals include a free LG Electronics GP50NB40 Super-Multi External DVD Burner, which is an additional savings of $26.99.
Purchase AppleCare at the discounted rate of $174 (Reg. $249) at the same time as one of the aforementioned laptops and you’ll be able to save an additional $50 with this mail-in rebate.
If you’re looking for a deal on the Retina MacBook Pro, Retina iMac or any other Mac, I’d suggest starting at Apple’s Refurbished Online Store.

The AirPort Express is by far the best wireless router for anyone in the Apple ecosystem and is a great choice for nearly everyone else as well. It’s definitely priced higher than similarly spec’d wireless N routers, but this is a case where paying “Apple tax” is worth it.
Amazon has it on sale for $79 with free shipping, which is $20 below its regular price.
Use it to setup a wireless network from the easy-to-use AirPort iOS app, print wirelessly, or AirPlay music to wired speakers. I’ve had one for years now and can’t remember the last time I had to reboot it. I know this phrase is overused, but it really does “just work,” which can’t be said for many of the headache-inducing budget routers out there.
If you don’t mind going refurbished, Apple sells an AirPort Express for $65 shipped and has the best deals for AirPort Extreme ($129) and Time Capsules (from $199).
