Apple just announced pricing and availability information for its shiny new MacBook Pro. Apparently it will come in 3 models, starting at $1,499, and you can order them all today. Shipping times are different, however, depending on which model you’re after.

The entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro is essentially a MacBook Air replacement. It shares the slimmer design and various internals with the new MacBook Pro, but it comes with physical Function keys instead of the Touch Bar, and doesn’t have Touch ID.

  • Crazy money for these, such an easy pass. They could have easily made the entry 899.99 and gone up from there since they killed the Air model. So essentially they just did what the iPad Pro line up did.. add one new item.. call it Pro.. and shut down the smaller models that are non-pro.

      Wait what?? I don’t remember them mentioning killing the Air Model!!

        the 11 inch is dead, mild price drop on two 13 inch models of the Air. Still, if the goal of the baseline 13 inch Pro was to replace the 13 inch Air, they didn’t really do that one in price and two seeing as they are both in different classes of computers

      They still have the MacBook Air on their page listed starting at $999

      • For now.. he said it’s going to stick around for a while.. but usually that means 1 generation and a minor hardware change. Essentially its not worth purchasing.

        Touché

    • JaeM1llz

      So you want them to charge LESS money for a more powerful computer?

      • Not what I said.

      Why because they are a publicly traded company who only cares about money and shareholders?

      Except Microsoft puts USB type A ports on their computers like everyone else does.

        Usb C is future

    • AMB_07

      Yeah when you make Apple seem like the cheaper option you know there’s a problem. At least for me that is…

      • racerhomie2

        lol they are cheaper 1500 vs 2400

  • Rolf Bause

    1800 bucks – because, Courage!

  • Lit

    Wait. So dual core and integrated graphics for 1500? If this is true, even for an Apple product that is ridiculous…

  • Jibbley Gravey

    BRO $1500 for a macbook pro with no bar? LOL… $1700…

    WOW…

    If you want i7 and 16gb of ram it’s $2505 after tax mind you it’s DUAL CORE

    15 in is $2600 after tax… QUAD CORE I mind you… pricing makes NO sense.
