    Current MacBook
    When do you guys think the current MacBook Pro's and Air's will go down in price? And how much do you think it will go down due to the new generation coming out?

    There is no new Macbook Pro that was announced, so no price change there. The Macbook Air will go on sale right now and you will not be able to order the previous one anymore, you can keep an eye on the refurb store to pick up the previous generation models with a better discount now..

    When Apple releases a new model, they basically keep the price the same and stop selling the old model..

    But what about places like best buy? Will they start selling for cheaper?

    Yes, it's possible that other vendors might drop the prices of the current gen to make room for the new one..

    Brand new Apple computers generally speaking don't go down in price (at least not very much). Generally they're available until the current stock is exhausted...then they're gone.

    Even before new models are announced...current models can show up in Apple's refurbished section...but more will show up in the refurbished section when new models are announced & released.

    Computers in the refurbished section can be reduced by $50 to a few hundred dollars. The reduction depends on the price of the computer. The higher the price...the more the reduction. For example...a $600 Mac-Mini will never be reduced to $300.
