Online retailer Kogan’s expansion into mass market brands continues, with the site now offering the MacBook Air, iPhone 4S and Toshiba and HP laptops online. How do the prices stack up?
The 16GB iPhone 4S is $739, which is cheaper than Apple’s official $799 price. Apple’s price includes delivery while Kogan has a delivery fee of at least $19, so it’s not quite as large a saving as it first looks, but still not a bad deal.
An 11-inch MacBook Air with 64GB SSD is $979, the 128GB model is $1279, a 13-inch model with 128GB is $1379, and the 256GB 13-incher is $1709. Apple’s equivalent prices are $1099, $1349, $1449 and $1799. That makes Kogan cheaper than Apple direct, but not as cheap as the regular ’10 per cent off Apple’ sales seen at JB Hi-Fi, Dick Smith and Harvey Norman. So as ever, shop around carefully.
