Amazon drops price of Retina MacBook Pros by $200

If you weren’t able to grab a MacBook Air during Best Buy’s two-day sale, or if you were holding out for a discount on the MacBook Pro with Retina display instead, check out Amazon.com right now. According to 9to5Mac, the website is offering the laptops at a discount and will even ship them to you for free. Although it’s unclear whether the price cut is permanent or merely a temporary promo, both 15- and 13-inch versions are sold at prices considerably lower than usual. 

The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display that comes with a 2.3 GHz processor and 256GB of storage is now available for $2,000 – $200 less than its usual price of $2,200. If you really want a Retina-equipped MacBook Pro but can’t afford the $2,000 price tag, you can choose to get the 13-inch version instead. Amazon is offering the 13-inch laptop equipped with a 2.5GHz processor and 128GB of storage for $1,516 – that’s $183 less than its original price of $1,699. 

Of course, if you’re not particular about wanting a brand new computer, you can always grab a refurbished MacBook Pro with Retina. The 13-inch version is available for $1,439 at the Apple website, while you can get the 15-inch version for prices starting at $1,869.
