iMacs at Best Buy drop $270+ for .EDU emails, prices starting at $1029 or less for 8GB/1TB/2.7GHz

Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 6.58.30 AM

Apple introduced a $1099 iMac yesterday that cuts the storage and speed and half and doesn’t allow upgrading of the memory.

Don’t buy it. Here’s why.

Today, Best Buy cuts the price of its iMac line across the board $120-140; the sale lasts 3 days. Even better, people with access to a .EDU email save an additional $150 over the prices above by submitting their email here.

That means the price of the new midrange model drops to $1029.99 shipped, $70 less than the stripped model. A new 27″ model now starts at $1509.99, also a new low.

Even without the student discounts, you are much better off with a fully functional iMac for $80 more than Apple charges for its stripped down model.

 

Jump on Apple’s new $1099 1.4GHz iMac? We might have a better offer for under $1000

Apple took down the Apple Store for 6 hours last night and introduced an entry level iMac for $1099. What do you ‘get’ for $1099? Apple halved the hard drive to a paltry 500GB and speed of the processor to 1.4GHz. That’s a little uninspiring to say the least.

Not to worry, we’ve got a better entry level offer for you. MacMall will sell you a new 2.7GHz iMac from last year with a 1TB hard drive for $1069. A $70 mail in rebate brings it below $1000 with Tax in only a few states. Even without the rebate, it is a better offer: it also has much better graphics, the same Thunderbolt ports, wireless keyboard and mouse and is freely upgradable to the latest Mavericks/Yosemite OS. One downside is the wireless which is 802.11N instead of 802.11AC in the newer one.

Apple also looks to have dropped the prices on its refurbished Airport Time Capsules. $149 now buys you a 2TB Model which is pretty much a no brainer if the size and age aren’t a problem for you. Apple offers the same 1 year warranty on its refurbished items that it does on its new products so buy with some confidence.

Nest Protect relaunches with a 22% discount, now just $99

nest-protect

After being temporarily pulled from store shelves, the Nest Protect is back and available at an even lower price. It originally launched in the fall of 2013 with a list price of $129.99, but Nest has announced that the Protect is now available for $99 (wired version too) as a way to “make it accessible to as many people as possible.”

Protect is a smart smoke and carbon monoxide detector that uses a human voice to announce potential dangers, which Nests notes is more effective at waking children than a traditional beeping alarm. The Nest app makes it easy to control your Protect and sends notifications to your smartphone or tablet if your alarm goes off. It also plays nice with the Nest Learning Thermostat.

Order the Nest Protect at its new low price today from Best BuyHome DepotNest, and it has just hit Amazon as well. we expect it to hit Amazon very soon. (updated 6/17 2:15pm)

Get a $50 Amazon credit and 6 months of Google Play w/ a Sonos PLAY:3 or PLAY:5 wireless speaker

sonos-amazon-deal

Amazon offers a free $50 Amazon credit with the purchase of any Sonos PLAY:3 or PLAY:5 wireless speaker. Even better, Sonos is still giving new users 6 months of free access to the Google Play streaming music service. Sonos products don’t go on sale very often, so scoring two promotions on a single purchase is a great deal.

The Sonos streaming speakers provide wireless access to your iTunes music library, Pandora, SiriusXM and other music services from your iPhone, iPad or other smart device. Critics hail the Sonos system for being incredibly easy to setup and pumping out huge room-filling sound. You can easily extend your system by simply adding more Sonos players throughout your listening space. Simply put, the Sonos Player is one of the best ways to add a great sounding internet streaming sound system to your home or work space.

We wholeheartedly recommended the PLAY:1 speaker in our review.
