This Week's Buyer's Guide includes deals on the MacBook Air, the Mac Pro, the Retina MacBook Pro, and several different Apple accessories.

There aren't many deals on the iMac, the iPad, the Retina iPad mini, or the 2014 Retina MacBook Pro this week, but make sure to check back next week for new discounts because prices tend to fluctuate on a week-to-week basis.

MacBook Air

A few sites are offering deals on the 2014 MacBook Air this week, dropping the price as much as $150. The 11.6-inch 1.4Ghz/4GB/128GB MacBook Air is available from B&H Photo and Adorama for $799, down from $899.

The 13-inch 1.4Ghz/4GB/128GB MacBook Air is available for $849 from Best Buy and Amazon, a discount of $150.

Mac Pro

Stock configurations of Apple's Mac Pro desktop computer are available at slightly discounted prices from several retailers this week. The 6-core 3.5Ghz/16GB/256GB machine can be purchased for $3,739.99 from Best Buy, Amazon, and B&H Photo, while the 4-core 3.7Ghz/12GB/256GB machine for $2,839.99 from Best Buy, Amazon, and B&H Photo.

Retina MacBook Pro

The sole deal on the 2014 Retina MacBook Pro is for the 13-inch 2.6Ghz/8GB/256GB model, available for $1,379 from Adorama and B&H Photo.

There's a solitary deal on the 2013 15-inch 2.0GHz/8GB/256GB Retina MacBook Pro, which is available for $1,599 from Amazon, Adorama, and B&H Photo, a discount of $400.

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.

Apple Accessories

The Apple Smart Cover for the iPad Air (pink) is available for $22 from DailySteals, a discount of $17. CrossOver 13, which lets users run Windows software on the Mac, is available at 50% for $30 from StackSocial. Case-Mate also has a site-wide sale going on, with up to 60% off most of its products with the promo code P85Z3N4.

Finally, Beats By Dre Tour In-Ear Headphones can be purchased from Groupon for $110, a discount of $40.

At one point I wanted a MacBook

But having an iPad, a powerful tower pc and work pc I've lost any desire to do so.

I'm really impressed with the direction Mac OS are going but i can't justify the purchase if it will hardly get used

I'm still somewhat irked that people refer to beats as an apple product. Those earbuds are likely the equivalent of a budget pair of in ear headphones, yet they cost more that a pair of, far superior, SE215s.

Have you actually tried them? Or are you just repeating what other on the internet say? I'm not a user so I don't know their audio quality but a lot of people are making their comments on forums/youtube etc based on their assumptions rather than their experience.

Isn't the 13" MacBook Air for $749 still the best deal that I posted here?https://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1763548 looks like the deal is still active.

Yep, that's the $849 deal with the .EDU discount. Only open to students, though.
