Best Buy is also offering $50 to $125 off several Apple MacBooks, including multiple 2014 MacBook Air and Retina MacBook Pro models. This can be combined with Best Buy's EDU deals, which offer $50 off all MacBooks and $50 off iMacs.

The 2.6Ghz/8GB/128GB 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is available for $1,199.99 from Amazon B&H Photo, and Adorama. The 2.6Ghz/8GB/256GB 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is available for $1,399 from Adorama, B&H Photo, and MacMall.
