If you're wanting some shiny new Apple hardware in your life but can't afford the latest releases, get down to Best Buy sharpish. It's currently slashing the price of Sandy Bridge MacBook Airs and Pros to make way for the new models.
The largest discount's to be had on a 13.3-inch MacBook Air with a dual-core 1.7GHz Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. It used to cost $1600—now it's down to a more affordable $1,225. Of course, you'll be missing out on USB 3.0 and a processor bump, but maybe you don't care.
