Best Buy drops price on all MacBook Air models for weekend promotion

We've got some good news for those who have been wanting a MacBook Air but find the higher price tag a little difficult to swallow, as Best Buy has discounted all MacBook Air models in a weekend promotion.

Since Best Buy probably wouldn't begin advertising a new console without advance notice from Sony, we feel okay saying that this is probably legitimate, but keep in mind that there hasn't been any official confirmation from Sony at this hour.
