This morning, Best Buy has launched its Tuesday Techday Sale that is loaded with discounts on iMacs, Logitech Bluetooth Keyboards, Panasonic eneloop batteries and more. Basically anything needed for a great college dorm room is available in this sale that runs through the end of the day. Free two-day shipping is available on orders of $35+ or your can opt for in-store pickup.
The standout deal is Apple’s 27-inch iMac with Retina Display 3.3GHz/8GB/2TB (model MK482LL/A) for $1,949.99 shipped with access to a .edu email address. However, if you’re simply buying it for the sale price (without .edu), you’d be better off going over to B&H, which offers this model for $2,049.99 shipped (Tax in NY only). For comparison, it sells for $2,229 direct from Apple. Today’s deal is easily the best that we’ve seen. Features include a massive 27-inch 5120 x 2880 Retina 5K display, 3.3GHz Intel Core i5 processor and a 2TB Fusion hard drive.
