Deals Spotlight: 16-Inch MacBook Pro Gets $100 Discount at Best Buy, Amazon, and Adorama (Starting at $2,300)

by

A trio of retailers have begun discounting Apple's just-released 16-inch MacBook Pro, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Adorama. These sales follow discounts offered by Expercom, which are deeper and extend to custom configuration models as well.

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.

If you're only interested in the two base models of the 16-inch MacBook Pro and would prefer ordering from Best Buy, Amazon, or Adorama, we've compiled every discount below. Shoppers should note that in many instances these notebooks will ship later than Apple's estimated dates, by as much as three weeks, particularly for those ordered from Amazon.

For Best Buy's sales, you'll also need to be a part of the My Best Buy program to notice the discounts on each MacBook Pro. Take a look at each price markdown in the list below and be sure to shop before the sales expire.

Price is just to damn high

It's been the same price since 2016. Counting for inflation, the 15" MacBook Pro from 2006 was $2,551.76.

The reality is that most people don’t actually know what they want or need. Just because it is the latest technology and that their phone has it. They also need something to complain about

If you actually take the laptop anywhere, an airport, hotel, etc. There is no way you are going to see wifi6 being used or get the benefits of it. There are no travel routers that support wifi6 either.

I for one, am big on having the latest and greatest. I would have rather had a 1080p camera or faceid in the laptop than wifi6. Either way, this is the first Apple laptop I am buying since 2012.


Genuine question. I’ve seen this mentioned a lot here and I don’t know if this is a criticism people are trying to bandwagon or if there’s a very good reason.

802.11ac has stronger than gigabit throughput. Almost all routers on the market don’t support 802.11ax. For the purpose of connecting to the Internet, you'd be hard pressed to find a router which even supports faster than gigabit in, and just as difficult to find a symmetrical gigabit Internet connection.

If you need a faster or more stable connection for a local network, you’d likely be wired anyway with 10Gb Ethernet.

I understand it’s good to have the latest technology but is this really a necessary feature stopping you buying it? Can you confirm why you need 802.11ax? Again, I’m asking because I don’t know why people seem so passionate about this.

Nice but with no Wi-Fi 6 I’m gonna pass. Let’s see if the next (hopefully) 14 inch has better connectivity options.
