- Amazon: 13" MacBook Air: $1199 -> $1011 ($187 Off)
- Amazon: 13" MacBook Pro: $1199 -> $962 ($236 Off) $1199 -> $1,034 ($164 Off)

Amazon's discounts, in particular, can be very volatile and can change quickly. See our full roundup of all other interesting discounts on Black Friday.

go figure, amazon is notorious for changing their prices several times an hour once the product has received enough web traffic

Just missed it for the cheaper price, I'll look through out the rest of the day if it goes down again.

Question, If we purchased it through amazon and want to buy the applecare though apple with the education discount, would we be able to? It's going to be for our son and it would be nice to save $50+ dollars for the applecare.

When I first clicked link, it showed $962. Now it's $1034.99... Bummer. Was just relaying to a friend in the market for this exact machine.

I guess the problem is that the new iMacs are not out yet.

I purchased yesterday for $1034 & called and got credit for the $962 price earlier today. Can't believe it dropped sub-$1000

I was lucky enough to catch the 962 price earlier today.

I was comparison shopping for this model. The price was bouncing around and at one point indicated that Amazon was out of this model. Strange.

Amazon Changing Prices

I picked up an XBOX bundle from Amazon this morning for $199. By early afternoon it was $249. Later in the afternoon, it was on a lightning deal for $219.

Best Buy (in store and online) have the $1199 model for $175 off through tomorrow. Picked up one today (actually returned the 11" 4/128 I bought from them on Wednesday for $1056 but haven't opened yet and got the 13" and $21 back)

Amazon has been the best place to get MacBook Pros so far. I ordered the 2012 13" for $962 and two Retina MacBook Pros (2.6GHz/8GB/512GB) for $2150 each, which is awesome because that's $700 off each one! In total I saved around $2000 when you factor in tax and shipping.

Still too much money. I bet there's a $1000 or more dollars in profit in all their CPUs.

Make sure to look at the amazon.com site from a PC. Wouldn't want to get the higher price!

Apple's discounts are like starting haggling at 70% off and settling for 70p off because you still feel you got a good deal...

... By saving 70p..
