It’s that time of year. Whether or not you’re in school, there are great prices to be found at MacConnection, consistently one of the highest rated Apple resellers on the web. However, you will not find bundles or rebates, just straight discounts.

For example, get the previous gen 27-inch iMac with 3.2GHz Core 2 Duo for $1,389, which is about $50 less than Best Buy, etc. are selling it for. Additionally, MacConnection offers 8GB of RAM installed for $89 and that’s way better than the $200 Apple expects.
