Anyone else find this sale abnormal? It's quite a heavy discount. Do they know something we don't know about MacBooks? I'm highly aware it could be to just goose sales and offload excess inventory, but let's explore.

Many places in the UK are offering discounts on the M1 MacBooks at the moment, but saying that they are 8 months old now…

I did purchased recently a Smart Cover for iPad Pro ( with a similarly massive discount from Amazon UK) and despite being advertised as new it was obviously used. Ordered a replacement which came used as the first. Amazon never acknowledged any wrongdoing from their side and I actually had to pay myself for the postage to return them.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the same happens with Apple laptops: one could find himself with a used MacBook with Norwegian keyboard layout.
I hope I’m wrong but experience plus the strangely low price makes me suspicious.

The new MacBook Pros coming out in 2 months are redesigned.

Not abnormal. Amazon have regularly chopped 200-300+ of the RRP of things like MacBooks & Surface devices.

I think I paid £100 less than the RRP on the 8GB/512GB M1 MacBook Air just before Christmas and it had only been on sale for a few weeks. I was browsing at the right place, right time I guess.
