I know, right? I still order quite a bit from them because I have Prime and you can't beat the free two-day shipping, but I don't order near as many things as I used to.

This never happens in Blighty (and needn't happen anywhere - MBAs don't need a discount to sell). Get them while they're hot!

Not seeing any price matching by Amazon:

Apple MacBook Air MD232LL/A 13.3-Inch Laptop (NEWEST VERSION) $1,478.02, $20.98 or 1% discount.

I'm not sure I follow what you're asking. When I purchased the $984 open box, there were two of them at that same price. These are the same 13" / 4GB / 128GB Airs that they're now selling new for $1000. Today, that 2nd open box Air is now showing up on their site as being reduced to $958. Minus the "10% off open box items" coupon brings it down to $862 vs the $886 I paid for mine, so a $24 savings. Not sure it's worth the trouble for that, but if I could talk the starting price down from $958 to something lower, it could be.

Sigh. Caved. Picked up the 4GB/128GB 11" I've had my eye on for a while to replace my 2008 unibody Macbook and augment the 2011 13" 4GB/128GB MBA.

They did until last night. They ran out of stock of the 13 inch base model and both 11 inch models. I am not sure why the 13 inch $1499 model is not on sale for $1299.

MATH = MacBook Air ToucH

Sales hmmm sounds like a new model will be released soon.

The rumors were wrong calling the IPhone 5's next model "MATH"

It's actually for the Mac Book Air.

"MATH" = MacBook Air ToucH or MacBook Air Touch Hybrid

I bought one of the 11" 128GB SD ones and had a 10% discount coupon as well. Came in under $900. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

They should. They have a 30 day price-match policy and 60 days for Reward Silver members.

Best Buy has refused to keep with the times and is on the same path that Circuit City has descended.

Missed it

Saw the article and was going to buy but I came down with a nasty case of the flu within hours and didn't make it to the store. Oh well. I really need 8 GB for my photo work so I'll buy a refurb from Apple.

If you are going to purchase AppleCare, it is still a good deal at B&H just as long as you don't have to pay tax.

Should've bought one and resold it for $900-1000.


Or better yet, buy 5, sell for $1000 each, and have enough to get one for yourself :P

Actually, I missed out. Was running some errands near the Best Buy so I stopped in, but the other open box model must have gotten sold within the previous hour. At that point, I didn't really have any leverage. Oh well, no biggie. My wife loves it and the $886 (+ tax) that I paid was still a solid deal.

I wasn't home for the BB refurb deal or when Amazon had it in stock for $999. Anyway I purchased one from Amazon Warehouse for $950. Came with 0 cycles and successfully updated the purchase date to 1/26 for AppleCare coverage.
