Mac Deals: Best time to buy a Mac, iPhone and iPad
Thinking of buying a new iMac, Macbook, iPhone or iPad, but don’t exactly want to pay the full retail price found on launch day? DealnewsÂ has analyzed over a year’s worth of Apple deals to help buyers with when to buy a Mac, or more specially, when they can expect to find the best discounts on Apple hardware. Here’s the quick rundown:
- MacBook Pro 15.4″ with Retina DisplayÂ – wait 9 months and save $350
- iPhone 5Â – wait 3 months and save $73
- iPad (current gen) – wait 1 month and save $59
- iPad mini – wait 3 months and save $29
Since Apple doesn’t normally slash prices on their iDevices (save for perhaps Boxing day and Black Friday), the best places to find discounts are resellers like MacMall,Â AmazonÂ and even the Apple eBay store (certified refurbished products). Check out the infographic after the break.
