They are basically giving it away at this point. I really need to publish my MBP M1 review here on Macrumors before the new revs are released. I suspect new revs are going to experience a similar cycle of discounts.

To those waiting on those 16 and 14 inch models, I would implore you to wait a bit if you can and grab deals that are gonna be showing up Amazon, BestBuy 6 months after. Trust me, if you have waited this long, your 2013, 2014 and 2015 can wait 6 months.

Wow, $850 is a great deal. $750 with “student” discount at Best Buy is fantastic!

Yeah just got one a few days ago for $750 from BB. I can’t see it being lower than that for a while.

I bought mine for 799$ with 0% sales tax and must say they're jolly good machines. Super cold to the touch and when you go back to your Intel MBP you feel the lag in the Intel system. Everything is slower. Apple need to be applauded for taking their first steps into ARM computing with the M1 chip.
