Cheapest Place to Buy New MacBook Pro
Posted by: phuture
Date: August 18, 2019 01:25PM
I'm looking for a 2019 13" MBP. Are there any retailers besides Apple where I could save a few bucks? At least not have to pay sales tax. My online search did not yield many results, that's why I'm posting here. I found in NY called Data Vision. Any other leads are much appreciated.

Back story: I'm not used to paying retail and usually don't buy the newest stuff. However my 2013 Air recently got run over and I need a replacement. Thinking longterm, the 2019 MBP makes the most sense.

For buying new, I like [expercom.com] In the past, they had a requirement that you be a previous customer to get a discount, not sure if that's still the case. If you don't see any discount online, then maybe call and see. FYI, we're not talking a huge discount here, about 2-3%, but it's on custom configurations also and unless someone else is having a sale, I find Expercom to be the best price. Because unless someone is having a sale, pricing seems to be pretty consistent across the board on Apple laptops.

Dang, run over. I can imagine how much that sucked. I bought my 2018 MBP at Best Buy. Check their return cabinet. edit: tho yeah, taxes to the man.

Bestbuy is currently running a back to school sale.
Best prices for Apple as far as I know... it ends today though.

Have any friends in school? Might be able to get education pricing that way.

I think 2019 13" MacBookPro models are pretty nice right now, so long as you like the keyboard quality. Get one of the 'one dongle to rule them all' external port additions, and you are set.

I like my 2018 version a LOT, Apple has polished these machines quite a bit since 2016.

I've used this for both the kids' college laptop purchases. Apple never verified it.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I ended up buying one from Adorama and it gets delivered tomorrow. I'm a bit concerned though because they didn't have the 16gb model. I hope 8 will be ok. Bummer the ram can't be upgraded.
