Update (12/29 11:50pm): Best Buy is now offering the below model 12-inch MacBook with Retina Display (in Space Gray or Silver only) at an all-new low: $1399.99 shipped. That’s $199.01 below the regular listing, $40 under the previous price (below), and the best price we have ever tracked on this model without a student discount. For those with access to a .EDU email address, you can knock an extra $50 off the total bringing it to only $1349.99 shipped. That’s by far the lowest we have seen on this model and only $50 more than the regular price of the smaller 256GB model.

Electronics valley via eBay Daily Deals has Apple’s 12-inch MacBook with Retina Display  1.2GHz/8GB/512GB in Space Gray or Gold (MK4N2LL/A, MJY42LL/A) for $1439.99 shipped. That’s $159.01 below the regular price, $10 below our previous mention on the high-end model and the best price we can find. While we did see the new MacBook go for $300 off over the holidays, that deal is now long gone and was only available on the smaller 256GB model.
