In addition to the new Touch Bar-equipped 2016 MacBook Pros being among the most popular notebooks Apple has ever announced, the company has sold out of refurbished last-generation 15-inch MacBook Pros from its online store as the company introduces new models expected to ship to customers in the coming weeks.
A number of Reddit users noticed that several models of the refurbished last-generation notebook models had been available at discounted prices. That supply is apparently running low as customers snag up remaining stock.
You can still head to Best Buy to snag a unit for $1,509, which saves you $490 off the $1,999 price tag. This unit features the 2.5GHz quad-core model with 512GB flash storage for $2094, $405 off the old $2499 retail price.
If you don’t want the refurbished model, eBay currently has the 2.2GHz quad-core configuration brand-new for $1599, $400 off Apple’s current $1999.
Apple introduced its new line of MacBook Pro notebooks on October 27th. The company still continues to sell one configuration of the last-generation 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models from its online store, presumably while supplies last.
The ship time for the Touch Bar-equipped MacBook Pro began around 2 to 3 weeks. As such, the entry-level 13-inch model without the Touch Bar is already available. Shipping estimates have since increased with all models of the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar currently listed with a shipping estimate of 4 to 5 weeks from Apple.
Apple appears to be preparing to ship the first of the new MacBook Pros as it today began charging credit cards of pre-order customers.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
