$100 off M3 "steep discount"
Don't forget Apple refurbished. I bought an M2 15" 2 TB on there and am very happy. Machine looked good as new. There are lots of higher end configs on there.

I would like to upgrade my M1 Air to get more storage, but prefer the wedge shape and am not ready to give it up yet.

Just got my daughter an M3 MacBook Air 15 inch. Upgraded from a 2015 MacBook Air that she got as a graduation gift out of high school. That old MacBook Air lasted from 2015 til 2024 before upgrading her with the M3 MacBook Air 15 inch. She's pleased with it and is blown away how much the macOS has evolved since 2015. I just upgraded to MacBook Pro M3 Pro 16 inch upgrading from a 2015 MacBook Pro.

their not selling so good I guess. MacBook Air just updated and discounted heavily already.

Can't remember the last time I didn't buy a Mac anywhere other than Best Buy. $799 brand new for my M1 iMac, $905 for an openbox excellent 15' M2 Air I used for a year before trading it in for $780 value and getting a $1299 excellent refurbished M1 Pro 16'... Oh, and $402 Excellent-good Mac mini in early 2022 that I used for a bit before giving it to my spouse.

I even helped my mom upgrade her intel MBP 13 from 2019 to an M2 Air using this very $849 discount mentioned yesterday. BB gave her $315 trade-in value for that Intel junk she was using, and she got a brand new M-series Mac for $566 after-tax.

Unreal discounts.
