iMacs up to $150 Off at B&H

iMac

B&H has a sale on 21.5″ and 27″ iMacs right now with up to $150 off and free shipping.

Macs are always a good deal at B&H due to the solid prices on AppleCare that are substantially below what Apple charges at retail. I’ve been buying Macs from B&H for years for myself and they’ve always beat Apple’s pricing on both the Mac and the AppleCare. I’m not sure how they offer the cut rate prices on AppleCare, but that’s a key reason why I stick with B&H for any Mac or other Apple hardware that I buy.

I had a conversation with one of the Mac sales guys at B&H a year or so back and he told me that B&H was the biggest Mac retailer in New York state – selling more Macs that even Apple in New York.

Apple 5K Retina Display Coming?

Apple 27-inch Cinema Display

With the new Mac Pro packed with enough power to run three 4K displays at once, it’s reasonable to question where those 4K displays are coming from. While there are a few 4K monitors available now, there are none from Apple. The 27″ LED Cinema Display offers 2560 x 1440 resolution; however, that’s still a far cry from full 4K resolution at 4096 x 2160, or UHD 4K at 3840 x2160.

With the upcoming release of OS X Mavericks, Apple has released a new desktop background available at a resolution 5120 x 2880 – or 4x the resolution of the current 27″ LED Cinema Display. [Read more...]
