Best Buy drops prices on Apple's MacBook Pros with Retina display for 1-day gifting eventBest Buy on Sunday announced that it is cutting prices on Apple's entire lineup of MacBook Pros with Retina display as part of its 24 hour Holiday Gifting Sale. [Update: B&H has matched Best Buy's pricing]
The sale, which runs through midnight, knocks up to $89 off the 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina and up to $129 off the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina —in each case yielding the lowest prices on these models currently available. The discounts are also the steepest since cyber shopping week, which has left most of Apple's reseller partners without stock of 80% of the MacBook Pro Retina lineup since then. Best Buy was reflecting immediate availability of all 5 standard retail configurations as of press time and is guaranteeing delivery by December 24th.
Update: B&H Photo has matched Best Buy's pricing and offers the added benefit of only charging sales tax on orders sent to New York, yielding the lowest prices for most readers. The retailer has 2 of the 5 models in stock now, with the remanding to begin shipping out shortly.
