The wholesale retailer is accepting pre-orders now, with shipments expected to begin the week of December 17. In-store pickup appears to be an option, but it's unclear if Costco warehouses will be selling Macs to walk-in customers.

An annual Costco membership starts at $60 in the United States.

good think they don't in packs of 2 only!
Technically not, but you do get an additional discount if you pair the Mac with either a rotisserie chicken or a 6-pack of muffins.

No surprise here all these crazy deals that even Apple themselves wants to participate. I guess the lackluster launch of iPhones and probably struggling sales during Thanksgiving weeks. Apple is really desperate to rake more dollars from the people they like screwing before the year is over. Good luck Apple hope you’ll hit harder your head with the brick and wake-up from reality.
Perhaps some talk therapy would be useful to work out some anger issues?

$999 for MacBook Air. Good deal. Then add on $500 dollars in things you didn't know you needed, a gallon size jug of maple syrup, and two pieces of greasy pizza.

Apple do not need to be in Costco to generate more sales. They just need to create better products at not overpriced values and customers will line up at the Apple store to buy them.
But ALL the latest Macbooks, Pro and Air that have RAM and internal SSD soldered and not upgradable, are a big NO-NO.
They overpriced and non upgradable for what they are.
No worries about that. Apple reported $63 Billion in sales for the last quarter, up 20% from the same year ago quarter.

People have voted with their wallets.


"They overpriced and non upgradable for what they are"

See above.

At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
