Apple announced a new entry-level iMac this week. As I noted in the coverage, however, the processor and graphic performance are quite the drop off from the next 21.5″ iMac model up in line, which retails for $1299.
B&H has that $1299 model for $1179 right now, which means you get a big bump in speed from the entry-level model for $80 more, instead of the retail bump of $200 between the models. Check it out while the deal lasts here at B&H Photo.

With the recent release of new MacBook Air models, B&H is clearing out the past generation and has the entry-level MacBook Air for $799 (reg. $999). Of course, the new entry-level model is only $849 (thanks to a $100 price drop on the MSRP when Apple launched the new models and B&H’s sale prices).
I actually have the model that is one year older than this model on clearance and have been very happy with its performance. I generally use it for travel and run Lightroom on it with no problems. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
