In a bit of an early back-to-school promotion, Best Buy has discounted the price of two of Apple's most popular 13-inch MacBooks by $200.
As first noted by All Things D, the electronics retailer on Thursday reduced the price of the MacBook Pro with a 500GB hard drive and 4GB of RAM from $1,200 to $1,000, while the 750GB model with 8GB of RAM is now available for $1,300.
Students who register their .edu e-mail address on Best Buy's Student Deals site will get an additional $100 off their purchases during the promotion, which ends on July 27.
The price cuts come a few weeks after Microsoftfor a two-month window this summer. Under that program, Surface RTs without keyboards sell for as low as $199.
