Buyer’s Guide: Discounts on iMac, MacBook Air, Retina MacBook Pro, and Apple … – Mac Rumors

As we head further into April, deals have begun to dry up a bit. There are still discounts on a few select iPad models, and low prices on the iMac, older MacBook Air, and older MacBook Pro models. Deals on current products like the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 are unavailable this week, so if you’re looking to buy a tablet, you might want to hold off for a bit.

We have several exclusive offers just for MacRumors readers this week, on games from GameAgent and products from Casetify, a site that offers custom iPhone, iPad, MacBook, and Apple Watch accessories. We’ve also rounded up some great apps you can get on the cheap this week.

iPad Air 2


Best Buy continues to offer the lowest prices we’ve seen on a single iPad Air 2: the 16GB Cellular iPad Air 2 in silver is available for $499.99, $130 off its regular price.

B&H Photo is offering a small discount on all of its iPad Air 2 models, dropping prices by $30 to $50. With the discount, the 16GB WiFi only iPad Air 2 is priced at $469 and the 64GB model is priced at $569.
