What on earth is warranting this price drop? Apple laptops never drop like this...
Not sure what you mean by warrantying, but they do guarantee their prices, somewhat (at least that's what they said when I bought some headphones form the Apple Store). I'm not too concerned about this taking a dive any further since my CC covers this for 60 days.
You misunderstand his question. He's asking what the reason is behind these recent and substantial price reductions for Apple laptops.
As of now, it is back in stock if you click through the second link the OP provided. I was thinking about buying one, but I can't pay $880 for an Apple device that does not have a retina screen ): (It costs $880 here in California). Good Luck!
I am not sure about this deal, help me. I am used to buy refurbished/open box items either directly from Apple or from local stores like Frys/Bestbuy. Till now i have purchased Thunderbolt display from Bestbuy, iPad 3 from Apple and found them working and in new condition. Either way after 10/15 days of usage, you won't even notice if they were purchased new or open box. As far as warranty is concerned, you will get full one year which Apple offer with new item.
Now as far as price is concerned, i got Thunderbolt 27" display [Apple] from Bestbuy for $625 [Open box + 30% open box discount]. Got iPad 3 from Apple for $379 [Refurbished].
Now looking for Macbook air and can see 13" Macbook air, $829 with 128GB Flashdrive open box in Bestbuy and find more value than buying brand new 11" with 64GB flash drive.
I know i am not comparing Apples to Apples , but a heads up and food for thinking for some who want to save more if the above make more sense.
BTW, this is a great deal when compare brand new item, so thumbs up for OP.
