Deal | Lightning-fast MacBook Pro 14 with Apple M1 Pro and 16GB RAM gets an intriguing 20% discount in Amazon's latest sale
According to several rumors, Apple's brand-new MacBook Pro models with the slightly quicker Apple M2 SoC may be just around the corner, but the purportedly incremental hardware upgrades may not entice all buyers to spend more of their hard-earned cash on the steep list prices at release. Fortunately, a new deal at Amazon now presents the perfect opportunity to pick up the current 2021 MacBook Pro 14 at a steeply discounted sale price.
To be more precise, Amazon currently offers the popular 14-inch MacBook Pro base model with the quick Apple M1 Pro octa-core processor and 16GB of system memory for just US$1,599 including free shipping for Prime members and regular customers. This is US$400 or a whopping 20 percent less than Apple's official MSRP of US$1,999; and according to the price tracker at Camelcamelcamel, this is Amazon's lowest price for this high-end laptop. This deal applies for the sleek Space Gray and the traditional silver color variant of the 2021 MacBook Pro 14, and both models are equipped with a 512GB SSD, which unfortunately can't be replaced because it is soldered onto the motherboard.
In our comprehensive review of the 14-inch MacBook Pro base model, we praised the high-quality and sturdy chassis and the great display, which literally shines with an extremely high HDR brightness of up to 1,600 nits as well as an accurate color reproduction. In addition to the high performance and great efficiency of the M1 Pro chip, we liked the quiet cooling fans and long battery life of more than 13.5 hours in our Wi-Fi websurfing test. In conclusion, we found that the 2021 MacBook Pro 14 is an "impressive multimedia laptop", and thanks to Amazon's current deal, this high-end machine can be ordered for a comparatively reasonable price.
