Buyer’s Guide: Discounts on iPad Mini 3, Retina MacBook Pro, Apple Accessories and More

Now that the iPad mini 4 is out, the iPad mini 3, which is basically an iPad mini 2 with Touch ID, has been discontinued by Apple. That means retailers have begun dropping prices on iPad mini 3 models that remain in stock, so it may be possible to get a good deal on an iPad mini 3 if you need to save a few bucks.

Prices are finally dropping on the Retina MacBook, five months after it first launched. Discounts are up to $150, so it’s a good time to pick up one of Apple’s ultra slim notebooks.

As always, we’ve also hunted down some great accessory deals and outlined a list of apps and games that are currently on sale.

iPad Air 2

There are some iPad Air 2 models available for discounted prices from Amazon, but none are at the lowest prices we’ve seen, so it might be best to wait for a better deal because iPad Air 2 discounts pop up pretty often.

The 16GB WiFi only iPad Air 2 in gold is available for $425, while the 64GB version is available for $533. The 16GB WiFi only iPad Air 2 in silver is available for $432.99, while the 64GB version is available for $537.98. The 128GB WiFi only iPad Air 2 in Space Gray is available for $627.83.

The 16GB Cellular iPad Air 2 in Gold is available for $544, and the 64GB Cellular version in Space Gray is available for $668.89.

B&H Photo is offering a discount on some of its iPad Air 2 models, dropping prices by $30 to $75. With the discount, the 64GB WiFi only iPad Air 2 in Silver is priced at $569, while the 64GB Cellular model is priced at $669.

B&H only charges sales tax in New York, which is also worth keeping in mind when looking for a deal.

Buyer’s Guide: Discounts on MacBook Air, iMac, Apple Accessories, and More [Mac Blog]

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off next Monday, but there’s no reason to wait to make a purchase of a new iPad or Mac – Apple isn’t expected to introduce any new hardware at the event, instead focusing on software and services.

Deals this week are decent, but there aren’t many discounts on iPads to be had. There are a couple iMac deals worth checking out if you’ve been considering a new desktop. The 21.5-inch 2.7GHz iMac is available for $1,150, and the old 27-inch non-retina 3.4GHz iMac is available for $1,794, the lowest price we’ve seen on that machine.

Some older MacBook Pros are also on sale this week, with deep discounts available, and Best Buy has the new 13-inch MacBook Air with 4GB RAM and a 256GB SSD available at its lowest price yet – $1,099.99.
