Deals: 13-Inch MacBook Pro Seeing Discounts Across Every Model, Including 2.4GHz/256GB for $1,499 ($300 Off)

Thursday March 5, 2020 6:02 AM PST by Mitchel Broussard

Amazon has introduced a new low price on the 13-inch MacBook Pro from mid 2019 today. You can get the notebook with a 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD for $1,499.00, down from $1,799.00.

This $300 discount is the lowest price we've ever tracked for this model of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and it's available in both Silver and Space Gray. This MacBook Pro includes a Retina Display, Touch Bar with Touch ID, four Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, and up to 10 hours of battery life.

On the entry-level side, Best Buy has the 13-inch MacBook Pro with a 128GB SSD for $1,049.99, down from $1,299.00 ($250 off). This is another lowest-ever price, and a good deal for anyone looking to get a cheap price on the latest 13-inch MacBook Pro.

There are a few solid deals on other 13-inch MacBook Pro models, although they are not lowest-ever prices. The 1.4GHz/8GB RAM/256GB SSD model is $1,249.99 at Best Buy, down from $1,499.00 ($250 off), while the high-end 2.4GHz/8GB RAM/512GB SSD model is $1,699.00 at Amazon, down from $1,999.00 ($300 off).

As another quick mention, Amazon is still discounting the 1TB 16-inch MacBook Pro to its lowest price of $2,499.00, down from $2,799.00 ($300 off). Adorama is matching this deal, which is an offer we've seen come and go throughout the past few months, and worth looking at if you're interested in a high-end version of Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Assume these aren't worth it even at a discount due to the potential keyboard issues?

I've held off for several years from updating my 2015 MacBook Pro -- not gonna give up this close to the finish line.?

Also, for many people such as myself the #1 issue with that keyboard is how much it sucks to type on right out of the box. The breaking prematurely part is just icing on the cake.
