M1 MacBook Air from $1349 (Was $1449), M1 MacBook Pro from $1749 (Was $1849) Delivered or Pickup @ Apple Education Store

930

Apple has reduced the RRP of their Macbook range by $100. The education store prices have also been dropped. Seems like a long-running deal.

You can try your luck OW price beat for an extra 5% off if you’re a student.

    Would jbhifi match the OW price beat price? May be able to get a further 10% using gift cards?

    •  

      I don’t think they can match OW price beat, but they can match the education store price. I would personally hold out for a 10% off Macs sale. They've updated the new MacBook RRP to: $1499 for Macbook Air and $1899 for MacBook Pro

      •  

        Ah thanks ok then will hold

    •  

      Not a chance.

    •  

      Yep. Bought a 16” MBP at end of 2019 by doing this. JB offered an extra year of warranty so I wanted to get it there. So OW beat JB’s price by 5% and actually printed me off a “quote”. So I went to JB and said if you can match this I will buy it right now. The guy asked his manager and did it for me.

    I wonder why Apple would drop their price, so relatively soon after releasing the M1 models? We recently heard that M1 models are now outselling Intel models, but I had assumed that that was because of declining Intel supply (and that they would soon be discounted).

      Apple tends to set the price based on the USD rate at the time of introduction and leaves it at that until a new version comes out.

      I think they do some hedging of the dollar at that point.

    If using Uniday it's A$1,322.20 for M1 MacBook Air 8‑core CPU, 7‑core GPU

    https://www.apple.com/au_edu_801524/shop/buy-mac/macbook-air

    Would OW do their deal using the Uniday price (with OW discount would drop to $1256.09)

    •  

      I remember I tried to price match the Galaxy S10 from the education store and both JB and OW said the deal had to be "publically" available for them to price match it. Maybe different places give different answers but doesn't hurt to ask

    if Apple has dropped the prices its most likely due to currency fluctuations with the AU$ being a lot stronger since these were originally released. That is my guess.

    •  

      Yes you are right as I have mentioned above, at about the same time you posted. (I was a little longer in typing) 😀

      It's nice they dropped the MacBook Air & Pro prices for the currency change, but weird that they didn't adjust the Mac Mini ones which came out at the same time!

    Any chance of getting the free airpods ?

    Ok, we take the Australian webpage for the MBA with its prices:
    https://www.apple.com/au/shop/buy-mac/macbook-air

    Then check the web archive to see what the price was last year:
    https://web.archive.org/web/20201210012043/https://www.apple...

    And we indeed see that the RRP went down by $100.

    However, if we check the US webpage:
    https://www.apple.com/shop/buy-mac/macbook-air
    https://web.archive.org/web/20201225205336/https://www.apple...

    We still see the same starting price of $999 (USD).

    Conclusion:
    Apple has dropped the price in Australia, probably due to stronger AUD/USD rate. They might have their own forecast of the future AUD/USD rate and that's why the price adjustment took a while.

      I hope they change the price tags on their refurbished store as well.

    I get three different pricings for Macs. For example, for M1 Pro 16gb memory 512gb storage:

    Regular student pricing: A$2,549.00
    Unidays pricing: A$2,498.10
    University pricing: A$2,447.50

    •  

      what do you mean by University pricing?

        for uni students. I think the "regular" one is for high school or sth

        Apple store is down. Have wait out this pre-order

        •  

          14 days money back…

          •  

            @muncan: Yeah … I’m more pissed off about the wait time. 16/512 models have no local stock so they come from China.

    •  

      this price drop must have happened a few days ago. My order from yesterday is $1890 (Air 16/512) and if I check now the price is the same. Price is via Unidays not the normal education store.

    Further 15% off using the him/her gift cards by price matching at JB 0_0

    •  

      How do these him/her gift cards work (can't get on to their website to check?

      •  

        Supermarket discounts, redeem in-store only iirc.

        •  

          Been on TCN website and can't see where the 15% discount using the him/her gift cards works at JB Hi-Fi (or other retailers).

          Sorry if I'm missing the obvious

          •  

            @Celts88: They were offered a few months ago

  •  

    Amazing deal I’ve purchased M1 using education for $1380 , it’s an incredible device

  •  

    Fact that they're reducing the price only sounds to me like they're about to release the next version
