Where you can buy a discounted MacBook Pro
Apple’s MacBook computers are well-known for being quality pieces of hardware — and they’re priced at a premium. But the good news is, if you’ve been holding off on buying a MacBook, the price is coming down for lots of different models. It’s possible to save even more money, if you know where to look.
The trouble with buying MacBooks is that there aren’t many retailers who sell them outside of Apple itself. That means that timing is often critical when finding a good deal, as can careful consideration of what you need and are willing to pay.
Be willing to shop around
The natural place to start your search for a MacBook is at Apple.com itself. The company has made some significant reductions to the prices of its Retina screen-enabled MacBook Pro line, and if you get it from Apple directly, you’ll nab 1 percent cash back and free shipping. Students and teachers also can get significant discounts, and Apple also offers financing to make paying for your MacBook a little easier.
Alternatives to buying through Apple
If buying from Apple doesn’t interest you, there are only a few alternatives. Among the stores you can try is Best Buy, which offers 2 percent cash back, as well as free shipping to your nearest Best Buy store. Another store that carries MacBooks and offers good deals is Newegg, but you’ll need to pay more attention for a solid coupon to augment your shopping.
An affordable MacBook might be tough to come by even with the reduced prices Apple is offering, but the cuts definitely bring down the overall cost. A willingness to shop around a little, and maybe keep an eye out for future special offers, can help make Apple’s laptops more affordable.
