Buyer’s Guide: Discounts on Retina iMac, Older MacBooks, Apple Accessories … – Mac Rumors

We’re in between Memorial Day and Father’s Day, which means deals less than impressive this week. There are a few sales on iMacs and older MacBooks, so now may be a good time to buy one of those, but if you’re looking for a solid deal on a new iPad or MacBook, you may want to hold out until later this month as retailers will likely be offering Father’s Day discounts.

That said, we’ve gathered up the few deals that are available this week, and we’ve found some solid deals on several Apple accessories. As always, also we’ve rounded up a list of the best apps you can get on the cheap.

iPad Air 2


B&H Photo is offering a small discount on most of its iPad Air 2 models, dropping prices by $30 to $50. With the discount, the 16GB WiFi only iPad Air 2 is priced at $459 and the 64GB model is priced at $549.99. Prices vary somewhat by model, but there are slight discounts to be had.
