How to get the lowest prices on Apple's 2016 12" MacBooks

Apple's 2016 12" MacBooks are a popular choice for those seeking a highly portable computer —and this week AI has teamed up with Apple's top authorized resellers to offer the lowest prices anywhere on a wide assortment of available configurations, including options with and without AppleCare protection.

Apple Price Guides



All of the deals listed below are also accessible via our Mac Price Guide and Macs with AppleCare Price Guide, which compares prices across Apple's reseller channel on a daily basis, factoring in any exclusive savings for AppleInsider readers. Currently, there are several exclusive offers available that take already low pricing and throw in a bonus coupon for added savings.

Using the price guides is simple. First you browse for your desired Mac and configuration. To the right of each configuration is a list of current prices for those models from Apple's resellers. When you find a price you like, check to see if it has a green coupon icon next to it. If it does, click on it for additional instructions or tips to secure the special price. If there's no symbol, you shouldn't need to do anything special before clicking through the link and placing an order.

Below are a few highlighted offers extracted from the price guides for Apple's 2016 12" MacBooks (with and without AppleCare).
