    B&H Photo has debuted a new sale this week, discounting the 2018 13-inch MacBook Air by $100 and marking one of the first major discounts for the notebook, which Apple just launched less than one week ago. With the sale, the entry level model of the MacBook Air is now down to $1,099 from $1,199.

    Below we've listed each of the SKUs on sale in Space Gray, and you can find the Silver and Gold options on B&H Photo as well. B&H Photo lists these MacBook Air models as pre-orders, so shoppers will likely have to wait a little longer to get the notebook in, but sales tax will not be collected on orders in certain states.
    [*]1.6 GHz, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD - $1,099.00, down from $1,199.00
    [*]1.6 GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD - $1,299.00, down from $1,399.00

    [*]1.6 GHz, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD - $1,699.00, down from $1,799.00 For today only, B&H Photo is also offering Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar from Mid 2017 (3.1 GHz, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD) for $2,199.00, down from $2,999.00. Additionally, the retailer is offering another model of the same notebook (3.1 GHz, 16GB RAM, 2TB SSD) for $2,799.00, down from $4,199.00.

    In an exclusive sale, Speck is offering MacRumors readers a 35 percent sitewide discount through tomorrow, November 14. To get access to the sale, enter the promo code RUMORS35 during the checkout process. Discounts can not be stacked, so the code isn't valid on products already marked down on Speck's site.

    Speck's website is full of accessories compatible with iPhone XS, XS Max, XR, 8, and 8 Plus, 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and many more. The company also sells laptop bags and power accessories, so be sure to check out the site before the exclusive discount code expires on Wednesday.

    Lastly, those looking to round out their Harry Potter iTunes Movies collection -- or complete it in one go -- should check out the latest sale on Apple's digital movies storefront. In the sale, each individual film is marked down to $7.99 and the complete collection bundle is down to $49.99.

    Originally, individual movies in the series were around $14.99, and the bundle of all eight films was priced at $79.99, so if you've been waiting to add the series into your iTunes Movies library, now is a great time. Additionally, all eight films are available in 4K Dolby Vision.

    Black Friday deals are happening earlier and earlier. Not that it's a bad thing.

    That MacBook Pro for $2200 is better than Apple's refurbished price for the same machine ($2419). However, unless you have crazy sales taxes, Apple has refurbished 2018 models that will outperform it for about the same or lower cost. Example, the 2.2GHz 6 core i7 with 16 GB RAM and a 512 GB SSD and the Radeon 555X ($2209) should be faster overall. If you can give up the SSD size, the base refurbished model for $2039 will also outperform. They come with the benefit of the membrane under the keyboard that will keep out dust and crumbs.

    I'm tempted to snag the new Air, but I think I want to wait for more $999 sales, as well as waiting to see what happens (if anything) with a 12" Macbook update over the next few months.

    My guess is the Air has a lot more margin. Frankly, especially in the higher configurations it's quite overpriced.

    Makes sense..will just wait and see and hope in the next few weeks there will be a price drop. Besides, other than the apple folio case there isn't a case that works with the apple pencil 2..the one made by amazon(ZUGU case) is not scheduled for release til December 14th) so no point in getting an ipad when I have to wait on a case to put it in

    I'm tempted to get the 1.6 GHz, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD MacBook Air, but I suppose I'll wait to see what Black Friday and Cyber Monday bring. So far it seems B&H Photo has the most configurations available on sale.

    When I read this article, I thought that the Harry Potter audio books might be on sale on iTunes.

    Sadly, this is not the case. They are still in my opinion, greatly overpriced :(.

    I was thinking the same exact thing. If they dropped the 11" down $100 to $699, I'd be more inclined to sell my 10.5" and spring for the new model.

    Give it a shot you have nothing to lose. Sometimes with these price matches you have to try a few chat agents before you get what you want
