Amazon is currently discounting the latest 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar to a new all-time-low price. Specifically, this is the 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 model with 8GB RAM and a 512GB SSD, now priced at $1,499.99, down from its current price of $1,999.00 on Apple's website. This is the lowest price ever seen for the model, and the discount is only available in Silver.

The latest MacBook Pros have Retina Displays with True Tone, a Touch Bar with Touch ID, and four Thunderbolt 3 ports. At 512GB, this is also the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the largest capacity SSD. Shoppers should note that Amazon says the notebook won't be in stock until May 3, 2019, but those who order will get updates about shipping via email.

well put; the slam poetry, but i put up with the MBP zombie keyboard for a year:
-apple initially wanted to repair it for $700+
-the only reason apple did any warranty work is because of legal action / class action
-apple fans no longer bring their MB's to work because peeps make fun of them
...

high priced product and not even mediocre performance
sorry
