Over the weekend, woot made waves and headlines by offering the 2011 11-inch MacBook Air with 1.6GHz i5 for $749, which is a pretty good deal. Woot is now sold out. However, you can still get the same new-in-box MacBook Air model for just $749 with free shipping at MacConnection.

That said, if you go with the attractively priced 2011 MBA with 1.6GHz for $749, it would be smart to bump the RAM to 4GB as that’s the practical minimum for smooth Mountain Lion performance.

And, for the lowest price on a refurbished “new” iPad (third-generation), check out Walmart’s $439 offer, which is a ten spot lower than Apple.
