    Today's sale comes one week after B&H discounted the 256GB version of this MacBook, which also hit an all-time-low price.

    The new sale is for the latest version of the 12-inch MacBook, which was last updated nearly two years ago in the summer of 2017. The MacBook features a 12-inch Retina display, USB-C, and a revamped trackpad. The June 2017 refresh introduced Intel's Kaby Lake processors, new GPUs, an updated keyboard, and much faster SSDs.

    Reminds me of my working 1.25GHz iBook laptop with OS X 10.5. Just a bit slower processor ;)

    People should buy these if only to get a preview of what the ARMac experience will be like.

    My nephew I believe bought either the first or second gen model last year. I don’t know what he was thinking. It’s a beautiful notebook, but I think it’s time Apple brought down to at 799 after three generations. The current MacBook Air should be at 999 and up and Escape MBP at 1199, MBP with with Touchbar at 1399, MBP 15 without discrete graphics at 1799 MBP 15 with discrete graphics at 2099, all with 512 GBs of storage standard.

    That's $600 you can put towards the first keyboard replacement.

    Hmm. Why would I downgrade my 2012 cMBP and ONLY go with 8Gigs of RAM?

    Apple’s SSD pricing is criminal.

    This is not a deal.

    Unlike many others I appreciate this laptop for what it is and have the first gen one. I would upgrade if they upgraded the cpu. It’s still the only 2.0 lbs laptop with a Retina display, decent performance, and good battery life. In comparison the Air is 2.7lbs but the 13” Pro is 3.0 lbs so at that point might as well get the Pro.
