Apple’s latest MacBook Pro has split opinion since its recent launch – the laptop has drawn praise for its design and performance, but raised eyebrows for its high price and exclusive use of USB-C ports. Meanwhile the new Touch Bar is a cool addition with some time-saving potential, but it costs an additional premium and the general consensus is that it doesn’t add enough value to the device just yet.
Lucky then, that Apple also released a brand new 13-inch MacBook Pro without a Touch Bar. Not only is this model decidedly cheaper than the Touch Bar versions, but retail giant Amazon has just knocked a massive $100 off its retail price, dropping from $1,499 to $1,399. UK customers stand to save even more, with the new MacBook Pro currently offered at a saving of £150. That’s £1,299 instead of £1,449.
It’s unusual for a new Apple device to get a big discount so early in its lifespan – it was only launched last month – and it’s not clear whether this is a permanent discount or a flash sale in the build-up to Black Friday. If you’re in the market for a new computer, act fast!
Meanwhile, if you’re not too bothered about getting the very latest technology – or prefer the old design – last year’s MacBook Pro is also heavily discounted on Amazon at the moment and still holds up as an excellent machine.
