Thread Details

Best Buy is blowing these out (retail price was $799.99 so this won't last!). They are no longer available online so you'll have to call your local store to see if they have them in stock still (SKU 2658129). Best of luck on this great deal! (note: you may upgrade the RAM to 8GB and you may use your HDTV as a display since these natively have HDMI. Also may be eligible for free Mountain Lion upgrade if new in box).

Confirmed at a few BBYs by me. Not sure if I should bite.

You can do an inventory check by selecting the particular store and clicking their "Open Box/Clearance" items.

The worker does not know the new policy, or he does and he just saved the last one for himself.
