Though not much, the fact that the 16/512 model is marked down so soon after release seems to indicate that's there's quite a stock of them at Best Buy. Not a bad deal at the lower price.

It's a solid deal if you absolutely need the M3 chip, otherwise Best Buy is also selling M2 15" MacBook Airs with 16 GB RAM and 1 TB of storage for $1499, which is coincidentally what I'm typing this on right now. ;)

I wish I could purchase these stock setups and be happy but I did once and ended up getting a BTO system afterwards.
