Best Buy's refresh of deals this week includes a 24-hour flash sale on Apple products like the 12-inch MacBook, MacBook Pro, fifth-generation iPad from 2017, and Apple Watch Series 3. The biggest savings here are for select models of Apple's 12-inch MacBook from 2017, with prices that can extend to as much as $550 off with Student Deals for the best prices we've ever seen on these models.

I really wish Best Buy sold the MacBook models with 16GB RAM. I’d jump all over that at $500 off (additional $50 off if student)

I need to upgrade my better half's S0 AW, tempting to do it now, but birthday is June 6th and WWDC is June 4th.
Series 3 was released on 9/22/17. IMO, they won't announce watch hardware 8.5 months after the last release.

Man, my local Best buy has a MacBook open box for $806 before the educational discount. That is a very good deal. I am not into the dongle life so I am going to pass. Plus, I just bought an Air about a month ago.

Bestbuy is having these deals every week now. I'm holding out for the 2018 model to see if they've updated the keyboard. I need the new Macbook pro to last me 5-7. Some people with the new Macbook can't go 6 months without keys on their keyboard breaking.
