The Cupertino-based tech behemoth has reportedly postponed the release of its updated MacBooks, which will probably be equipped with the faster Apple M2 Pro, Ultra and Max SoCs, until early 2023. Therefore, prospective buyers who are in dire need of an upgrade may be on the lookout for a decent deal on the currently available 2021 MacBook Pro 14 with the very capable Apple M1 chip, and fortunately, a corresponding sale can now be found on Amazon.
To be more precise, the well-known online retailer is currently selling the aforementioned MacBook Pro 14 base model with the fast Apple M1 Pro octa-core processor and 16GB of soldered memory at an intriguing 20 percent discount, which brings the price of this machine down to US$1,599 including free shipping. The high-end laptop is further equipped with a soldered 512GB NVMe SSD, and the deal applies to both the silver and sleek black color variant. The price history at Camelcamelcamel shows that this offer matches Amazon’s steepest discount yet for the Apple MacBook Pro 14, which is usually sold for an average price of US$1,903.
We thoroughly examined the Apple MacBook Pro 14 shortly after its release last fall, and we were particularly impressed by the so-called Liquid Retina display with accurate colors and an extremely high HDR brightness. We also liked the laptop’s quiet cooling system, the well-made chassis as well as the very high system performance. Since the Apple M1 Pro is an incredibly efficient and well-performing chip, most buyers of this 14-inch machine are unlikely to regret their purchase, especially since the upcoming models are only expected to feature a few incremental upgrades. When bought at a steep 20 percent discount, the 2021 MacBook Pro 14 is certainly a reasonable purchase for demanding users, even in late 2022.
