Amazon today introduced a round of notable discounts on the 15-inch MacBook Pro from Mid 2019, with discounts reaching as much as $450 off these models. In this article we've also included deals on the Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones and the Disney+ bundle that includes Hulu and ESPN+ for a low monthly price of $12.99.

15-Inch MacBook Pro

In Amazon's new sale, prices start at $1,999.00 for the 256GB configuration and reach up to $2,349.00 for the 512GB configuration. These discounts have hit after Apple launched the new 16-inch MacBook Pro models last week, which have now replaced the 15-inch models in Apple's lineup.

2.6GHz 6-Core, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Space Gray - $1,999.00, down from $2,399.00 ($400 off, lowest ever)
2.6GHz 6-Core, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Silver - $1,999.00, down from $2,399.00 ($400 off, lowest ever)
2.3GHz 8-Core, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Space Gray - $2,349.00, down from $2,799.00 ($450 off, lowest ever)
2.3GHz 8-Core, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Silver - $2,349.00, down from $2,799.00 ($450 off, lowest ever) Apple updated the 15-inch MacBook Pro in May 2019 with a new 8-core processor option in the high-end configurations and faster performance. This update also saw a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with similar specs.

Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones

During its Daily Doorbuster event, Best Buy is offering the Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones for $199.99 today only, down from $349.99 ($150 off). Colors available include Gray, Crystal Blue, and Desert Sand.


This is the lowest price currently available online for the Studio3 Headphones, which offer Pure Adaptive Noise Canceling, up to 22 hours of battery life, and include Apple's W1 chip for simple pairing with iOS devices. Head to Best Buy soon to check out the headphones and place your order before the deal expires later tonight.

Disney+ Bundle

Disney's new streaming service, Disney+, has been out for nearly one week, and it remains one of the cheapest streaming TV platforms to sign up for online. The service's bundle with Hulu and ESPN+ is also now live, and available for just $12.99 per month, which rivals the current cost of Netflix's Standard Plan.


This bundle is for Hulu with Limited Commercials ($5.99 per month), ESPN+ ($4.99 per month), and Disney+ ($6.99 permonth), totaling $17.97 per month, or about $5 in savings with Disney's bundle of all three services.

It's also possible to get Hulu with No Commercials included in this bundle, by following the steps below:
  1. Sign up for Hulu with No Commercials for $11.99 per month on Hulu's website (if you already have one, skip to step 2).
    Sign up for the Disney+ bundle with Hulu and ESPN+ on Disney's website using the same email address you used for the Hulu with No Commercials account.
This will get you a bundle with Hulu with No Commercials ($11.99 per month), ESPN+, and Disney+, totaling $23.97 per month. But you'll only be paying $18.99 thanks to a monthly $5.99 credit that Disney will send you, which represents the value of the Hulu with Limited Commercials plan (via Business Insider).

Of course, if you're not sure about Disney+ yet, you can sign up here for your seven day free trial. Those not interested in the Hulu and ESPN+ bundle can also just pay $6.99 per month for Disney+ alone, or $69.99 for a full year.

not much of a deal on that 512/16 MacBook Pro. Yeah it’s “$450 off,” but the new 16” is $2400 for 512/16, and deals are already available, so you can actually get the brand new one with the same storage and RAM for less than this.

the 256/16 is also not a very good deal, but at least there’s no directly comparable brand new model that’s cheaper.

Still doesn't beat the Costco deal that I got for the 15" MBP with 512 storage and 560X graphics card. Plus the new ones are much cheaper with better keyboard.

The new 16” models are a much better value, even with Apple’s automatic 4 warranty on the keyboard for the previous model. I’d hold out for refurbished 16” models if you’re looking for a deal.

Sweet...three weeks ago I sold the new-in-box pair of Beats Studios that came with my daughter's college laptop on Facebook Marketplace for $230. Looks like I made that happen just in time.

Echoing sentiments here - I think Apple waited until the last possible moment to release the 16” MacBook Pro in order to dwindle stocks of the 15” MacBook Pro, given that once users saw the better value proposition, the 2019 15” was going to sit on store shelves the same way the ET video game sat. Any remaining units, especially base models, are going to need to get to $1799 and $2199 levels to attract the attention of anyone in the know. The 2019 16” is simply too good of a value and fixes at least one giant PR headache, which is something no one can put a price on at this point.

Agreed. The 16" model, especially base version, is a very good value when it comes to a large-sized MacBook Pro.

No point in buying a system with a defective major component which can break so easily. Unfortunately not everyone visits a site like this one, so they'll keep buying the hardware so they can be Apple's guinea pigs.

Even with 400 dollars off, the graphics performance is still worse than the new 16 in base model. Just goes to show how ridiculously overpriced the last generation was, with its subpar keyboard. No thank you. Not even for 1000 off would I touch this.

Well, there goes all the value of the new MacBook Pro I bought in July when the 2019 was released. Didn't know there would be other one 4 months later.

Early this year I bought a used 2018 15” 6-core/512GB/560X MBP, knowing the situation with the keyboard. I haven’t had any issues, it’s a great laptop, and it only cost me $1700. I wouldn’t have bought it if not for Apple’s 4 year warranty on the keyboard, I figure I’ll replace it within the next couple years with a secondhand 16”. I’ve still got a couple weeks of the original 1 year warranty, and 3 years of coverage on the keyboard, so I’m not worried at all.

Getting closer every day!
I'll chime in and repeat some of the above sentiment: There's no way one would buy the 15", even at these discounts, compared to the new 16". I think they'll need another $300 - $400 off to moves these, now. The trials and tribulations of being a reseller.

I think $199 for a new pair of beats is a good deal. You could find them on eBay for about that. I know the beats aren't for everyone, but I love mine.

It's daft looking only at the discount, which is the difference between "15 inch last week" and "15 inch discounted". You need to check the difference between 16" and 15" discounted. With the discount, the old 15" is not _better value_ than the 16", but it's cheaper. I think what they call "discounted" is just what's a fair price for the 15" today. In the UK, instead of the £2400 16" I can get 15", smaller SSD, slower processor, for £350 less. Which seems a fair price, just not a bargain.

Amazon UK also offers a 2015 MacBook Pro _cheap_. Less than half the price of the 2019 16". Of course it's not the same, but it is 15" for affordable price.
