Great way to get a 10th gen Intel MacBook Pro. Apple doesn’t have them on their refurbished site at the moment.

I’d personally hold out for the Apple powered MacBook Pro, it will probably be twice as powerful, have twice the battery life, and have the same price point.

Somewhat of a decent deal, but you can order directly from Apple and get a set of free AirPods right now if you're a student or working in the academic field.

I expect more and larger discounts on Intel-based Macs. Everyone buying an Intel Mac knows they are buying a dead-end product. It will stop getting MacOS updates after only about 3 years and after that only security updates.

I think retailers will find they have excess inventory that they don't want to be stuck with. $200 off is just the start.

How do you know only 3 years?

Tim Cook and Apple both said they will release and support MacOS versions on Intel based Macs for years to come. That sounds like more than 3.

"Years" could mean anything equal or greater to 2 years. At least that is how they can defend themselves legally if Apple were to cut off support early.

On the Intel Macs, OS upgrades have been historically supported for 7-8 years (e.g. High Sierra released in 2017 was supported on 2009 Macs, Catalina is supported on 2012 Macs). After this there are typically security updates for 3 years.

This cycle was considerably shorter after the PowerPC to Intel transition, so we *may* see shorter upgrade & support periods after the ARM transition. Given the number of Intel Macs in circulation, I expect Intel will be supported for longer than PowerPC was. Maybe OS upgrades for 4-5 years (from now) and security upgrades for 2-3 years.

If you want iOS apps on your desktop, wait for ARM. Otherwise, it doesn't really matter and you may as well buy now.

Too bad it comes with Catalina pre-installed. (Some of us have jobs and projects that require software that Catalina makes obsolete...

I too need old software, but no problem: using Parallels and a VM with installed Mojave I am able to work with all my beloved software. My advice: Parallels needs Mac with 16gb RAM to run smoothly.
