With back-to-school sales in full swing and many Labor Day deals now live, there's never been a better time to buy a new laptop. And for once we have good news for Mac fans.
Buy on Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Best Buy is discounting a handful of Mac laptops (opens in new tab) with savings of up to $500. If you're a student — or know one — with a valid edu e-mail address you can save an extra $125 dollars by signing up for Best Buy's student deals newsletter (opens in new tab).
Upon signing up, you'll receive an instant digital coupon code which takes an extra $125 off Best Buy's sale prices. Alternatively, Best Buy is offering up to a $450 gift card (opens in new tab) for your old Mac, so if you don't have access to an edu e-mail, you can still save extra money on top of the current sale.
If you're looking to spend the least amount of money possible, Best Buy has the 2016 MacBook (opens in new tab) for $999.99. That's $120 cheaper than buying a refurb 2016 MacBook directly from the Apple Store. This system is configured with a 12-inch 2304 x 1440 Retina Display, 1.1-GHz Core m3 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. Students can use their student discount to drop the price even lower to just $774.99.
If you require a little more CPU horsepower — or simply want a 2017 machine — there's the current-generation MacBook Pro 13.3-inch Laptop (opens in new tab) for $1,234.99. That's $65 under Apple's price for the same laptop. Activate your student discount and you can drop the price to $1,109.99. This model features a 13.3-inch 2560 x 1600 Retina Display, 2.3-GHz Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB SSD.
Best Buy's Apple laptop sale is valid through Monday.
