expiredNow’s the time to setup an iTunes media server! Mac mini models from $350 ($149 off) with .edu email address

Yesterday we let you know about Best Buy’s 2-Day sale that includes sizable iMac and Mac mini discounts. Best Buy’s College Student offer takes an additional $100 off select iMac models for anyone with access to a .edu email address. The student promo states that it’s for MacBook or iMac computers, however we discovered this morning that it’s also working on Mac mini. That discount stacks on top of the $50-$70 sale to yield some of the biggest Mac mini discounts we’ve ever seen:

At these prices it’s definitely much easier to justify hooking one up to your TV as a sweet iTunes server.

Deal is good for today only. All models are eligible for free shipping or in-store pickup.

Black Friday always offers a wide variety of discounts on a number of products, but so far this year its been slim for consumers looking for a new Mac. We have confirmed some deals from Best Buy, but they are not offering a wide variety of configurations, and have tax implications depending on your state.

Adorama and B&H Photo are both offering discounts on most Mac models this week, we’ve already spotted a nice price drop on an iMac with Retina 5K display + AppleCare from Adorama.

In some cases Adorama is bundling AppleCare with a purchase for a discounted price. B&H currently only charges for taxes for New York residents at the time of purchase, while it varies for Adorama. Additionally, you’ll need a free Adorama VIP membership to take advantage of these prices.

Below you’ll find our top picks for deals on current generation MacBook Air, Retina MacBook Pro, Mac Pro and Mac Mini from these two retailers so far:
