Savings of up to $450 await shoppers looking to score the 2015 MacBook Pros that a new report said are up for grabs in 13-inch and 15-inch screen configurations. The killer deals will run while supplies last, somehow indicating that when the stocks run out the MacBook Pro 2016 release date will soon follow.
But first, Apple fans are in for compelling MacBook treats as Apple Insider reported that authorized reseller Adorama is pushing out both the 13-inch and 15-inch MBPs with promised savings that start at $140, which is the price off the 13-inch MacBook Pro 2015 that is powered by a 2.9GHz processing chip and 16GB of RAM. The storage is a capacious 1TB of space that makes the package a steal for only $2408 with bundled AppleCare protection.
For the biggest price off on the table, the 15-inch MacBook Pro that was issued last year bears a sticker price trimmed down by $450 or asking price that is down to $2918. The unit runs on the combo of a 2.5GHz processor with generous 16GB of RAM. And like its 13-inch counterpart, this MBP can store almost everything essential with 1TB of built-in storage.
Apple Insider said that not only the MacBooks will ship out free of charge and sales tax (for destinations outside of New York and New Jersey), they also come with a free Canon Pixma MG3522 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-in-One Printer. The printer normally retails for around $50 so the actual savings that shoppers will potentially realize is near $500.
As mentioned, the Adorama MacBook Pro 2015 inventory is nearing the depletion level, which somehow signals that the promo deals are part of ongoing efforts to clear out the existing MBP stocks. If true, the scenario only points to an imminent refresh that the MacBook Pro 2016 is.
In recent reports, analysts said that the upcoming MacBook Pros will unbox in the 13-inch and 15-inch form factors but with build and design that reflect the trim and lightweight 12-inch Retina MacBook 2016. Apple watcher Ming-chi Kuo is convinced that the 2016 MBPs will stun in even more slim and light build, powered by Intel Skylake chip and OS X 10.12 or MacOS as its rumored new name.
But the actual MacBook Pro 2016 release date will not happen until later this year with August as the earliest possible debut time even as Apple is reported to introduce the laptops via the 2016 WWDC this June together with the slight bumped up MacBook Air.
