Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pros are powerful machines, but they also tend to pack a powerful punch to your wallet. Today, though, Amazon’s Woot site is softening that blow by offering a certified refurbished 2018 256GB 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar for as little as $1,879.99, down $519 from the original price of $2,399. For only $100 more, you can bump up to the 512GB model.
Apple itself refurbished these units, but Woot handles the one-year warranty.
if you want more information, be sure to check out our review from last July. We were impressed with the speed (and still are), and we liked that the “butterfly” keyboard was quieter than what you’ll get with older MacBook Pro models. As editor Roman Loyola said at the time:
”I often say in laptop reviews that if you bought last year’s model, you probably won’t find the speed results compelling enough to upgrade. But speed weighs heavily in this year’s model, and this is an interesting buy for anyone who uses multi-core apps. Six processing cores are, well, better than four, and the performance boost is deeply satisfying for pro app users. You’ll find that the investment quickly pays for itself.”
