Update: Amazon has price-matched Best Buy’s $200 off promotion. If you are not eligible for Best Buy’s edu discount then Amazon’s deal is better due to potential tax savings (at time of purchase) and Prime membership benefits.

As part of their 2-day Black Friday in July promotion, Best Buy is offering $200 off all available Retina MacBook Pro models for everyone, plus an additional $100 off for customers with valid edu email addresses. That means you can grab a 13″ Retina MacBook Pro with a 2.5GHz i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD for as low as $1,199.99. A total savings of $300 off the retail price of $1,499. This beats last week’s deal by a solid $100. There are two 13″ and 15″ standard configuration models available in this sale. Buyers with a valid .edu email address can grab their $100 promo code through this Best Buy page. Deal ends tomorrow.

American Express cardholders can save additional $25 with this promo, bringing the total cost of an entry-level Retina MacBook Pro down to an unheard of $1,174.

Remember the new Retina MacBook Pro does not come with an optical drive. If you cannot live without a DVD/CD drive you can pickup a discounted Apple SuperDrive fresh off an Amazon price drop for just $70. A total savings of 11%.

apple-macbookair-haswell-deal-amazonAmazon is offering the June 2013 Apple 11.6″ MacBook Air (MD711LL/A) with 128GB SSD for just $949 with free shipping. That is a total savings of $50 off the retail price of $999 and the first significant discount we’ve seen. This MacBook Air features the brand new Intel i5 Haswell processor which enables it to achieve up to 9 hours of battery life, 802.11ac wireless connectivity, and dual audio microphones for improved audio clarity.

Reviewers across the internet are singing praises of the new MacBook Air.  Our own 9to5Mac reviewed the 13 inch version and declared:

Apple has a truly wonderful computer in the 2013 Macbook Air.

Pickup an ever so slightly discounted new Apple Time Capsule or Airport Extreme to get the most out of your new Mac’s 802.11ac WiFi.  Even if you don’t normally buy AppleCare on your Macs, it may make sense for the new Air since its ‘repairability‘ score isn’t too promising for at-home servicing.
