    I don't know if it's a bug at the Apple Store, but now you can see a $1999 model of the 15'' that doesn't have discrete graphics. I think that model wasn't there when new models were released.

    What's it? Is it Kaby Lake?

    2015 MBP, been there since 2015.

    It's the model for those who don't want to pay extra for TouchBar and need the ports/want a cheaper option.

    That's the 2015 model, which is still for sale.

    As I said it's been there since 2015. When the 2016 was released it got a price (Hike actually?) and lost dedicated graphics. Same thing Apple always do when they release newer models, keep an older one in circulation at a lower cost.

    Maybe you were looking at 13" models?

    Nope, I was looking at the 15'' and there were only two models. I know it because I checked there were no 15'' models without discreet graphics anymore

    I'm not sure how to convince you. The 2015 MBP has been there for $1999 since last November, with discreet graphics. It hasn't changed.

    You are incorrect and possibly trolling. It has been there for 2 years. It is verifiable. You are posting nonsense.

    There has been a base model with integrated graphics only since as far back as late 2013. What you are seeing is the latest mid 2015 base model with the 2.2ghz processor and 256gb storage.
    There is no 2016 or 2017 models without dedicated gpu.

    It was removed for a very brief period of time (several hours at most I would guess), which seemed to coincide with the website update around the same point in time that the 2015 13-inch MBP was removed from the main MBP-13 product page. I initially thought they stopped selling the model myself.

    Yeah that's possible, but the guy acts like it hasn't been up there for the past 2 years. They kept it in due to the non-trivial price increase on the 2016 model.
