New 2010 MacBook Air dips below $900, refurb $749

In the wake of the release of the 2011 MacBook Air equipped with Intel Core i5 processors, prices for the 2010 11.6-inch model have fallen quickly at Best Buy and Amazon. And Apple refurbs are a steal.

As of Saturday, the price of a new 2010 11.6-inch MacBook Air had fallen well below $900 at Best Buy, in the wake of the release of the 2011 models. And refurbs are now under $750 from Apple.

While other retailers list the low-end 11.6-inch model (MC516LL/A) at just below $900, Best Buy is listing it at $834.99. The 2010 11.6-inch Air is equipped with a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, Nvidia GeForce 320M graphics, 2GB of memory, and a 64GB flash drive.

How long the Best Buy price will last is anyone's guess, as Best Buy updates pricing frequently for items on sale
