Getting rid of old stock because new and shiny stuff coming next week. Even though it’s just the MacBook Pro’s many users who don’t need that amount of power will still consider it over the more than capable M2 MacBook Air’s.

I'm wary of any of the Best Buy memberships. Mine keeps auto-renewing and charging in spite of contacting their customer service monthly and confirming cancelation. They apologize and say it won't happen again, until it does.
