Good news for anyone thinking about buying a new Mac: Fnac holds a special weekend promotion, which starts this Friday (18th) and runs until the next Sunday (20th). For the time being, the information we have to give it only in your physical stores, not least because the prices on your online portal have not been changed so far.

The iMac MB417BZ / A (20-inch, 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 320GB hard drive) dropped from R $ 4,700 to R $ 4,000, a discount of about 15%. The white MacBook MC240BZ / A (13.3 inches, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13GHz, 2GB RAM, 160GB disk) went from R $ 3,200 to R $ 3,000, a reduction of just under 7%.

As we reported a few weeks ago, Fnac was able to ship Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard well before to consumers. Although many pre-ordered online, each chain store received 80 boxes of the product, which sold out in 1-2 days only. A new batch of the same quantity has already been requested and should arrive at any time, perhaps already this Friday.

And taking advantage of the opportunity, the reminder is worth: this Saturday Fnac and all authorized Apple resellers with trained consultants will hold the September Mac Solutions Day, this time focused on Ma's new operating system.
