Killer Deal: Apple’s 12" MacBook (1.3GHz, 8GB, 256GB) in Space Gray for $999 ($550 off) – AppleInsider (press release) (blog)
Early 2015 12″ MacBook (1.3GHz/8GB/256GB) $999.00 ($550 off + free Parallels)
In what is the lowest price we’ve ever seen from an Apple authorized reseller (or even a non-authorized seller), B&H this week is offering AppleInsider readers an instant $550 savings on Apple’s fastest Space Gray Early-2015 MacBook, bringing the price down to $999.00 with free expedited shipping. Additionally, B&H is throwing in a free copy of Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac (OEM), a $69.95 value, with each order.
Making this deal unique is the fact that the MacBook features a high-end 1.3GHz processor; these faster configurations normally aren’t discounted so steeply. In fact, according to our Mac Price Guide, this model is $500 cheaper at B&H than at other authorized resellers (with many stores completely sold out or temporarily out of stock).
And if you’re wondering how the 2015 MacBook compares to the 2016 version, be sure to check out our recent speed test, which found the 2015 12″ MacBook holds its own against the 2016 model. At $550 off for the next week (or while supplies last), this particular 2015 configuration is also a great option for back to school.
What’s more, in addition to the instant savings and free copy of Parallels, B&H will not collect sales tax on orders shipped outside their home state of NY. In total, shoppers outside NY can save roughly $675 compared to buying a similarly equipped MacBook at full price with tax at the Apple Store without even factoring in the free gift. This exclusive deal ends July 15, 2016.
