The Apple store isn’t the only place selling the just-announced MacBook Pro. Authorized retailers including Amazon, B&H, MacMall and Best Buy are all taking pre-orders with varying delivery estimates. It’s not surprising that Apple’s retail partners are selling the new MacBook Pro, but it is noteworthy in case you have some gift cards, rewards or coupons to burn, not to mention MacMall and B&H only charge tax at the time of purchase for a very limited number of states.
But the biggest discount news? Amazon has a pair of models available right now and they’re the only retailer to be dishing up some big savings: The entry-level 13-inch 256GB configuration without Touch Bar and Touch ID is on sale for $1,139.92 in Space Gray and $1,299 in Silver (Reg. $1,499). The high-end 13-inch 512GB configuration with Touch Bar and Touch ID is down to $1,799 (Reg. $1,999).
MacMall is taking up to $35 off the new lineup with most models dipping by only $15.
For those of you going all out with the 15-inch model, you can save $50 on AppleCare by going through Amazon or B&H, rather than Apple.
Apple may not love the idea of its latest MacBook Pro being discounted less than 24-hours after it was announced so you may want to place your order now in case Amazon receives pushback from Apple. Already placed your order with Apple? You should have no problem canceling in favor of one of these discounted models.
Why not use your savings to pick up some USB-C gear you know you’re going to need? Anker has a few cables on sale right now or you can browse the entire lot over at Amazon.
