Best Buy Discounts Entry-Level 15-Inch MacBook Pro to $1,499 in One-Day Sale

Best Buy currently has a limited-time sale hitting the 15-inch MacBook Pro from mid 2015, with a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and 256GB flash storage. Under the sale, those interested can get this model for $1,499.99, priced originally at $1,999.99. Students and parents of students can knock the price down an additional $50 to $1,449.99.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Although it's three years old at this point, Apple still sells this configuration of the 15-inch MacBook Pro as an entry-level option for those customers not interested in the more recent additions to MacBook Pro models, like the Touch Bar and Touch ID. Best Buy's discount is also $200 cheaper than it's ever been before in our tracking, and the deal will last today only.

Best Buy's sale on the 2017 MacBook Pro models is still going on as well, with savings of up to $200 or more. Prices start at $1,149.99 for the 13-inch MacBook Pro (2.3 GHz, 8GB RAM, 128GB HD), or as low as $1,099.99 with Student Deals.

In a separate one-day-only sale, Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day for today is also focused on MacBooks from 2015. Sold by Woot, these are certified refurbished models of the original 12-inch MacBook that Apple introduced in early 2015, with prices starting at $779.99 (1.2 GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB HD) and rising to $969.99 (1.2 GHz, 8GB RAM, 512GB HD).

My 2015 15” quad i7 is still kicking ass daily. Everything I throw at it, it handles smoothly. I have no need for a touch bar or USB C and dongles. The battery still holds a fantastic charge. The keyboard keystroke is rock solid and deliberate. Not sure what else I really NEED. It has been the very best MacBook Pro I have ever owned.

I agree with you, spaceywilly. The mid 2015 Pro is outdated.

It may be outdated (it actually isn't) but at least at one point it was awesome. Something the current models of MBP will never be accused of being with their awful battery life, horrendous keyboard issues, lack of ports etc etc When the answer to a machine's problem is constantly "I just bought X to address that!" you've got a bad computer.

I miss ALL of these features. Great summary of why I haven't upgraded my MBP soon.

I do t know about all of this. But Batman would own the Space Gray 2017 MacBook Pro.

End of argument.

Damn, I'd jump on it if had 1 TB hdd for a little bit higher price. 256 is just way too small.

Exactly. I own the model with the dGPU and it's been perfect for over a year and half. Wish the newer models kept all the convenient ports and great keyboard. Apple should have just kept upgrading it's internals and not add the gimmicky touch bar no one asked for which also bumped up the price considerably.
