Amazon’s huge $400 discount on Apple MacBook Pro brings it to its lowest price

Amazon deal offers lowest-ever price for a solid MacBook Pro model

Amazon has slashed the price of one of Apple’s MacBook Pro models by a massive $400, bringing it down to its lowest price ever. Better yet, this deal is for the 2019 MacBook Pro, which was updated only a few months ago. Since then we’ve seen a bunch of MacBook Pro and MacBook Air deals.

For a MacBook, this is a massive discount and it applies to Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar in the silver color. It comes loaded with a quad-core 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory and a 256GB SSD. That would set you back $1,799 on Apple’s website, but right now Amazon is selling it for $1,399 — almost as cheap as Apple’s entry-level MacBook Pro, but much more powerful.

The discount includes a price drop from Amazon and a coupon that you apply at checkout. The base price drop is $199, which alone makes this MacBook Pro its cheapest ever price, and you can then apply an extra $200 Amazon coupon at checkout. This coupon doesn’t require a code and is already included on the page — just tick the checkbox and it’ll be applied.

When Apple updated the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro in July, it became a much better deal than it was previously, as the update brought with it the Touch Bar and quad-core 8th-generation processors without increasing the price. This new deal from Amazon now makes one of Apple’s midrange MacBook Pro models just as tempting, if not more so.

Interestingly, the extra $200 coupon is only valid for this exact model. Changing the processor, adding more storage, even changing the color to space gray — all these will remove the coupon (although the base $199 price drop still applies). With that in mind, make sure you pick the model we’ve linked above to guarantee you get the coupon.

If you’re in the market for a 15-inch MacBook Pro with more power, you’re in luck here, too, as Amazon has also knocked $400 off Apple’s high-end 15-inch MacBook Pro, bringing its price down from $2,799 to $2,399. That gets you an eight-core 2.3GHz Intel Core i9 processor, 16GB of memory and a 512GB SSD.

For comparison, the other 15-inch MacBook Pro that Apple sells also goes for $2,399 but only has a six-core i7 processor and a 256GB SSD, showing what a good deal this is. The $400 discount for the 15-inch MacBook Pro also doesn’t require a coupon, adding to the attraction.

If you’ve been waiting for Apple to launch an OLED MacBook Pro, there’s some bad news: it might not come out for another three years. That’s a serious wait considering many of Apple’s rivals have already brought out some of the best OLED laptops on the market.

The news comes from display industry tipster Ross Young, who is well-known for having a solid track record when it comes to Apple leaks. Young tweeted a link to a Reuters article outlining Samsung’s plans for an OLED fabrication plant, adding the comment: “This fab is for 14” and 16” OLED MacBook Pros from 2026.”

Apple could be planning a new MacBook Air equipped with an OLED display, according to Korean tech website TheElec. Interestingly, there are suggestions that the MacBook Air could get this high-end tech before Apple’s flagship MacBook Pro models.

Right now, none of Apple’s MacBook laptops come with OLED panels, and instead use Liquid Retina displays based on LCD technology. That could all change if TheElec’s claims are accurate, however.

Since the launch of the redesigned MacBook Pro in 2021, Windows laptops have struggled to produce a true rival. The new Lenovo Slim Pro, though, looks to be the full package, especially in terms of its performance and screen.

The top-of-the-line new model, the Slim Pro 9i, matches the MacBook Pro in a few important ways, starting with the display. This is one of the first Windows laptops oriented toward creatives that adopts a mini-LED screen, switching from the OLED options that were previously available.
