expiredApple’s latest 13.3-inch MacBook Air 1.6GHz/4GB/128GB: $800 or $750 w/ .EDU (Reg. $999), more

Best Buy is offering Apple’s latest generation 13.3-inch MacBook Air 1.6GHz/4GB/128GB (MJVE2LL/A) for $799.99 shipped. That’s about $200 under the going rate and the best new price we can find. However, those with access to a .EDU email address can drop the total down to $749.99 shipped, which is $50 under the lowest price we have posted on the latest entry-level 13-inch Air.

Best Buy also has an open-box option on this model listed at $727.99, but again, a .EDU email address will knock an extra $50 off for a total of $677.99 shipped. Note: hit the “Open-Box from” link directly to the left of the Add to Cart button on the listing page.

You can expect the fifth-generation 1.6GHz Intel Core processor, Intel HD Graphics 6000, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of Flash storage, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a 720p FaceTime HD camera, and up to 12 hours of battery life.

If the MacBook Air just doesn’t have enough power for you, Best Buy also has a notable price on the current gen 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro 2.7GHz/8GB/128GB (MF839LL/A) for $1,099 shipped. At around $200 under the regular price, that’s matching our previous low on this model. If you add the $50 discount for .EDU email holders, it drops down to just $1,049 shipped. It has the new Force Touch trackpad, along with a 2.7GHz Dual-core, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of Flash storage.

You can use the savings here to protect your new MacBook with AppleCare for $299 (Reg. $349) over at Amazon.

One of the best ways to get a discount on brand new Macs has typically been Apple’s education pricing, but that’s not true this release cycle. Best Buy has been offering customers with .edu email addresses a $150 savings on nearly all MacBooks but until now the brand new April 2014 MacBook Airs were excluded.

Best Buy has lifted the ban on these models so you can use your unique education discount on any of the new MacBook Airs, which will net you the entry-level 11-inch model for just $749.99 with free shipping (17% off). As a pricing comparison, Apple only offers its education customers a $50 discount on this same model. This is currently the best pricing you’ll find on a new condition MacBook Air from the past two years since the EOL deal is now sold out.

To cash in on this deal you must register your .edu email address here, wait to receive a confirmation email from Best Buy, and then apply the promo code from the email during checkout. expand full story
