We featured the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models in an incredible sale earlier this month that’s still going on, but the entry-level model wasn’t included. Now it is: Amazon is selling the 14-inch MacBook Pro M1 Pro for $1,599 today, a savings of $400 and the best price we’ve ever seen.
For most people, this is going to be a fantastic machine. While it has the slower M1 Pro processor with 8 CPU cores and 14 GPU cores (vs. 10 CPU cores and 16 GPU cores on the other models), it’s faster than the M2 MacBook Pro and Air, and offers many options on the go. Energy. Along with the chip, it has a 14.2-inch Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion, stellar battery life, 512GB of storage, MagSafe charging, HDMI, an SD card reader, and three Thunderbolt 4 ports.
There are rumors that Apple will upgrade the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M2 processors next month, but we don’t think the gains will be that big, certainly not as big as $400 off right now. So go get one before they’re gone forever.
