MacBook clearout sales

Apple is pushing hard to get rid of older MacBooks still sitting in inventory, a company memo indicates. While having introduced new MacBook Pros on Tuesday, a number of outdated systems continue to be stocked at Apple Stores. "Our Macbook Family has been updated and all current stock of Macbook and Macbook Pros need to be sold," the memo tells store representatives, and various groups supplied by Apple. "All current in store computers are on a first come first serve basis."

As a result, previous-generation 13-inch MacBooks have had their prices cut by $100 to $300, resulting in prices between $899 and $1,299. MacBook Airs are now $400 and $800 cheaper, while MacBook Pros are $400 to $500 less. Additional discounts should be available from third-party retailers, though people buying from such outlets are no longer eligible for the One to One training program.

    Refurb Store

    Got last Fall's $1999 15" MBP for $1349 from the refurb store. Quite the savings and I still get a removable battery and EC/34 slot. :)

    last chance

    Last chance to get an ExpressCard slot on a 15" MacBook Pro, so you have at least some level of future-proofing and expandability.

    Refurb Store Rocks!

    In the past two years, I have purchased 2 Macbooks, a 24" iMac, and 4 iPods from the refurb store. All of them perfect and still operate as advertised.
    The refurb store rocks!
