Clearance Deals at Best Buy Include MacBook Air, Windows Laptop Refurbs and More


The latest rumors suggest that Apple is going to be releasing the MacBook Air with Retina Display sometime in October, or about a few weeks after Apple releases its newest iPhone, the iPhone 6. This would mark the second MacBook Air refresh for the 2014 model/calendar year, but undoubtedly the more significant one, as the first refresh wasn’t all that noticeable.

At the moment, it isn’t sure whether this new Retina MacBook Air would come with a 12-inch display as rumored, but we may find out more about this as we begin the run-up to what could be an October unveiling and release date.

Aside from the recent surge in MacBook Air rumors, another sign that Apple may soon be releasing a MacBook Air with Retina Display is the fact that existing non-Retina MacBook Airs are now being placed on discount. Best Buy, in particular, is one of those retailers offering a cut-price MacBook Air, and if you’re curious as to how much you can get it for, read on as we recap Best Buy’s clearance deals for the week.

The MacBook Air configuration that is currently on sale comes with a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor mated to 4 GB RAM, 128 GB flash storage, and a 13.3-inch display. Pricing used to be $1,099.99, but Best Buy is now offering this laptop for only $749.99, a rather notable discount of $350 off full-fat pricing. There is one catch, however, even if it shouldn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things; the above pricing applies to a refurbished MacBook Air, so you won’t be getting a brand-new unit if you make this purchase.

Other refurbished items that you might find interesting, especially if you’re looking for a Windows laptop, include the Dell Inspiron 7000 Series configured with a 17.3-inch display, a fourth-gen Intel Core i5 chipset, 8 GB RAM, and a 750 GB hard drive; pricing is now $649.99, or $200 off regular pricing.

Also, the Dell XPS Ultrabook Convertible 12.5-inch touchscreen laptop comes with 4 GB RAM, 128 GB internal memory, and Windows 8 64-bit out of the box, and will only cost you $599.99. That happens to be a whopping $600 cheaper than the original price of $1,199.99, effectively making this a half-price deal.

As for the third Windows laptop currently selling at a lower price, you can purchase the HP 15.6-inch laptop with 4 GB RAM and 750 GB hard drive space for $319.99, though that’s only $60 less than the original selling price of $379.99.

We’ve exclusively touched on refurbished laptops, but Best Buy’s clearance specials also include a variety of other tech items. Want a nifty “one more thing” type deal to close this recap out? Look no further than the iPad 4, or, as Apple calls it, the “iPad with Retina Display.” This is not a refurbished item, and the configuration currently selling for less on Best Buy’s clearance sale comes with 128 GB storage and Wi-Fi only connectivity. Pricing is now $719.99, and that represents a solid, if slightly unspectacular discount of $80 off the original price of $799.99.
