And how much?
If you count refurbs, they already had a price drop.
On Apple UK, you can get 1.1/256 2015 model for something like £749, 1.2/512 model for £949.
You can get a refurb base model MB 2015 for $929 USD now.
great idea, thanks! Are refurbs as good as new? (practically speaking)
Yep, pretty much as good as new, the difference is that you get a plain brown box.
I just got mine refurbished today. Indistinguishable from new. It's the first time I both a refurb, so I was hesitant. Would totally buy it again. Apple rep said 90% or more are just returned units where someone had a change of hearts or bought the wrong units, etc.
There was already a discount on the non-refurb 2015 model. If you didn't cash in on the opportunity over the last couple of days, then you most likely already missed out and will have to go for a refurbished unit.
On a related note, oddly enough, you get to the "clearance" area through the refurb section.
i.e.: The US and Canada stores still had non-refurb units available yesterday morning (04-21-2016) in the clearance section of Apple's website. They are both sold out now. So, you have to be relatively quick.
Thanks! I didn't realize there was a clearance section.
Picked up a leftover 2015 at my local Apple Store for $1,099 yesterday. They didn't have many left. I was thinking about getting a refurb for $929, but I got impatient and didn't want to have to wait for it to ship.
You paid $180 extra because you couldn't wait a week...
I paid $20 for next day morning delivery. I don't understand why someone would have to wait a week.
$170 by my count, but yes. I'm impulsive. I'm still thinking about ordering the refurb and returning this one. I'm having some weird battery issues. The battery calculator sometimes tells me I have around 8 hours remaining on a full charge, and other times it says 5. I haven't had the opportunity to actually run it down and see what I get but it was completely dead when I took it out of the box. I installed Coconut Battery and it reported that the Mac is 138 days old. Wondering if sitting so long did some damage to the battery...?
There is likely nothing wrong with your battery. I've noticed the same problem. It would show 3 hours then jump back to 8 hours and then down to 5 hours. I discovered that was caused by OneDrive syncing and running background processes before returning to idle state. Activity monitor should help you solve the mystery. The low battery remaining readings were brief in my case and certainly caused by temporary spikes in program activities.
Keep an eye on it. I'll bet you'll notice the same thing... I have the 2015 rMB by the way.
