Best Buy Apple Mac Items Sale: Delay Purchasing a New iMac Though?

If you’re in the market for a new Mac product we hear that Best Buy is currently holding a massive sale on Apple MacBook Pros, Minis and iMacs, even with free shipping. The sale is set to run to the end of the week but if you’re thinking of taking advantage to purchase a new Apple iMac you may want to delay purchasing one until at least later today as we still think the new iMac refresh for 2011 will be released today.

When we first heard about the Best Buy sale, from Seth Weintraub over on 9to5Mac our first thoughts were that the giant retail chain was clearing out iMac stocks in preparation for the rumored iMac refresh today. We’ve reported many times on the new iMac refresh rumors over the last few weeks, including stocks of the current iMacs diminishing and the very strong speculation that adds up to a May 3 release today. Although it’s still not confirmed that today is the day for the new iMac launch we wouldn’t be at all surprised later today if the Apple Store goes down for a few hours, as usually happens before a new product launch.

However it appears that Best Buy is not merely clearing its iMacs to make way for new ones as its Mac sale covers other Mac products too, with up to $260 off some items, according to Weintraub. It’s certainly worth checking out the Best Buy Mac Sale details but remember, hold off on that iMac purchase just yet. If you want to check out more on Apple Mac products head to Apple.com here.
