    Searching Amazon this morning, I found the base 2016 13" Macbook Pro for $1139.92. It's a pre-order price and not available yet, but who cares? It's $350 cheaper than full retail from Apple. If this is the model you're looking for, I'd get out there and nab one before Apple gets on Amazon's case for discounting a computer that was released less than 24 hours ago.

    Here's the link, but not guaranteed to work forever:

    I doubt it. It says the original price

    what do you mean? Amazon has pricing errors on items from time to time. Its hard to beleive that they'd discount a brand new product by almost $359 pre-launch and an Apple one at that

    I mean I also says the list price which is correct. That's why I doubt it's a mistake.

    I hope this offer will soon be in the German Amazon

    Swing and a miss. It says "From: $1139.xx" but when you click on the available sellers, no results found.

    List price is usually correct with a pricing error as thats not what's wrong; its the sale price thats the source of said errors. Ive seen this happen before and they've temporarily removed the listing or option to buy said product and cancelled orders that went through once they've caught on. If the price mistake was minor they might let it through but hundreds of dollars? Nah, those almost always get cancelled
