This week's Buyer's Guide includes some deals on the brand new 2014 Retina MacBook Pros, as vendors attempt to draw in customers with lower prices. Many retailers also continue to offer discounts on the previous-generation 2013 Retina MacBook Pros to clear out stock, and we've also got some deals on the 11-inch 2014 MacBook Air, several apps, and an array of Apple accessories.

There are no significant deals on iMacs or iPads this week, but prices tend to fluctuate on a week-to-week basis so make sure to check back next week for any new discounts.

As for the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro, the lower end 2.2GHz/16GB/256GB model is available for $1,899.99 from Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo and MacMall, while the 2.5GHz/16GB/512GB model is available for $2,374.99 from Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo and MacMall, a discount of $119.

Steep discounts on the older 2013 Retina MacBook Pros are also available for users looking for a high quality machine at an even lower price. The 2013 13-inch 2.4GHz/4GB/128GB Retina MacBook Pro is available for $1,099 from Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo and MacMall.

MacBook Air

The only solid 2014 MacBook Air discount this week comes from Adorama and B&H Photo, with both sites offering the entry-level 2014 11-inch 1.4GHz/4GB/128GB MacBook Air for $799, a discount of $100.

The older 2013 MacBook Airs are still available at low prices from some vendors. The higher-end 11-inch 1.3GHz/4GB/256GB MacBook Air is available for $939 from B&H Photo, while the lower-end 11-inch 1.3Ghz/4GB/128GB MacBook air is available for $779 from B&H Photo. The 1.3GHz/4GB/256GB 13-inch MacBook Air can also be purchased for $949 from B&H Photo.

B&H and Adorama, as always, are a good choice for buyers who live outside of New York and New Jersey, as the sites only charge sales tax in those states.

Before making a purchase of a Mac or iOS device, make sure to consult our Buyer's Guide to find out if it's a good time to buy. For example, because the Retina MacBook Pro was updated in July, the Buyer's Guide indicates that now is a good time to purchase.
