TL;DR: You can order the silver version of Apple’s previous-generation MacBook Pro for just $1,299.99 on Amazon. It’s normally $1,799, so you’ll save $499.01.
A recent MacBook Pro model is currently on sale on Amazon for its lowest price ever, saving you a total of 28% (or about $500). When everything’s said and done, you’ll cough up less than $1,300 for a laptop that normally goes for $1,799. You truly love to see it.
Updated in 2018, this fourth-generation MacBook Pro comes with 256GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, a battery that lasts up to 10 hour on a single charge, and a sleek aluminum body with a silver finish. Most notably, it sports Apple’s fabled Touch Bar, which replaces a handful of function keys with an OLED strip featuring things like emojis and system adjustments; you control it using subtle finger gestures. (Apple’s ad copy encourages Touch Bar users to “Tap it. Hold it. Flick it. Slide it,” which sort of makes it sound Bop It-esque, but trust us — it’s actually really cool.)
In terms of performance, this particular MacBook Pro comes with Apple’s T2 Security Chip, a Radeon Pro graphics processing unit (GPU), and the 2.3GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 processor. (For comparison’s sake, this year’s 13-inch MacBook Pro comes with the *2.4GHz* quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, so last year’s model isn’t a major downgrade by any means.)
Amazon reviewer over bought the 2018 MacBook Pro last fall; they wrote:
“Laptop is Incredible from the build quality to the performance. The Touch Bar is also an incredible addition that functions beautifully and has proved useful since it dynamically changes according to what program or app you are currently using. … So far the laptop has breezed through everything I’ve thrown at it. Going to mainly be using it for coding/media consumption/game streaming through apps like parsec. Fantastic buy for working professionals and students alike.”
