Yesterday, Apple updated the MacBook Pro lineup with a brand new 13-inch MacBook Pro that has an upgraded Magic Keyboard and faster 10th generation processor options. As typically happens when Apple ushers in a new generation of devices, the previous models are now seeing notable discounts at some retailers.

At Amazon, you'll find two configurations of the 13-inch MacBook Pro from 2019 on sale. First is the 1.4GHz notebook with 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD for $1,099.00, down from $1,299.00. This discount is also being matched at B&H Photo.

At B&H Photo, the 1.4GHz 13-inch MacBook Pro with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD is discounted to $1,199.00, down from $1,499.00. This is the lowest price we've tracked among the major Apple resellers online for this model of the 2019 13-inch MacBook Pro.

If you're looking for more storage, the 2.4GHz model with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD is on sale for $1,499.00, down from $1,799.00. Both the Space Gray and Silver notebooks are discounted at this price, and you'll again find the bargain at B&H Photo.

We've begun tracking the best monthly deals on all new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air notebooks in our new "Best Deals" guide. Be sure to visit the guide and bookmark it if you're on the hunt for a new Apple notebook; we'll be updating it weekly as we discover new MacBook offers across the web.

Never quite sure
No amount of savings is worth buying these models. I genuinely, truly feel bad for third-party sellers who have backstock of these.

(Except Amazon maybe.)
Agreed. These are a good $500 overpriced. And no way I'd want that keyboard. It's what's primarily stopped me buying any recent laptop once I witnessed them failing first hand . If only you could get the 2020 MBPro without a touchbar. Then I would be in heaven.

Surprise
Never any deals on the 16GB versions. Glad to see that at least with the new version they now have the top config with 16GB standard.

These are really not good deals when you consider that the new ones have base storage doubled across the line. Like the old 1.4/256/8 is only $100 less than the new 1.4/256/8 - the difference is that what used to be the middle of the lineup in terms of storage is now the bottom.

Just checked the trade-in value at Apple for a Early 2015 MBP, 13-inch, 256GB and 2.7 dual i5: recycle...

Worse yet for these resellers, Apple will sell refurbished models cheaper than the newer ones. It’s almost the best way to buy any Apple computer these days. My late 2018 Mac mini i7 with 256Gb of storage was $1300 with warranty in March 2019.

I think Apple offers the most right? Gazelle is a rip off for my 2015 MBP with 2.7 GHz i5/8gb RAM/128gb SSD.

Still terrible pricing, I’m thinking that maybe my aging 2014 MacBook Pro retina may be my last Apple notebook. Most of my portable computing needs can be done on the iPad anyway. I’m kind of starting to think that Apple wants that anyway.

I'm in the same boat. The only thing my MacBook Pro struggles with now is video decoding which was always a weakness in Macs even back in the Flash days.

I am amazed they are still selling them and they are not being recalled.

NO amount of discount is worth buying a computer with a failed keyboard design!!!

Yeah I dream about buying someone's lemon for almost the same price as a new one that works like it's supposed to.

Do you have a stat that shows how many refurbs were "lemons?" Refurbished products could have recycled parts, but that doesn't necessarily make it a lemon.
