A sale? At Apple?
Apple doesn’t do “conventional sales” but they do actually have “sales” — if you want to classify them that way. There are a couple of different ways they do it.
One way is by releasing a new model of an existing Macintosh line, and it will be packed with more features “included” in that model which were not included before (without “add on pricing”) and then they may drop the new model pricing by up to perhaps 10% as a permanent price. So, that’s what I would call a sale (of sorts). The model is lower priced and it comes with features that you had to pay extra for in the last model. All in all — it costs less for all users. Apple has been doing that quite frequently.
Secondly, the way Apple has “sales” on items is that they will take the previous model in an existing line (at the same identical time that they are selling the newer model) and drop that price by around $200 or $300 or in some cases $500 (on their online store, and at times at their “brick and mortar” stores, too). These are not refurbished ones that I’m talking about. But, they will also have refurbished ones, too, which will be reduced in price.
So, there are many ways that Apple does have “sale prices” in various model lines and products.
Another way is to throw in a printer with the purchase of a new Macintosh model. I got that “offer” at one time.
Sales are not the conventional sales in which they simply throw in a sale price just to get things moving. Usually Apple is doing it for specific reasons and purposes (for inventories) and not just to “have a sale”. So, you have to watch and wait and you will be rewarded...
