Hopefully this is clearing out stock. Wouldn't mind a Kaby Lake MacBook. Please add a 2nd USB-C port and 720p iSight, thanks.

Isn't kind of quick to be seeing discounts already on the Macbook Pro?

Well its the best selling MacBook pro since, well forever, according to Cook. So either he's wrong, or it is just some random Best Buy merchandise manager wanting to take some lower profit. I'll leave it to you to decide.

Best deals are often the open-box from Best Buy. Sometimes they are practically new and come with the full Apple warranty. The Macbooks for $899, for example, are a pretty decent buy.

Where's the best place to get Apple deals in the U.K.?

Aside from educational/business discounts directly from Apple, the pricing on Amazon is around 10% off (which is the same as you'd get from the aforementioned discounts). I'm sure some other posters will chime in with more ideas! :)
