It’s not every day that Apple knocks $400 off of a MacBook… and yet today is that day.
Amazon is selling the 2021 Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch for just $3,099, which is 11 percent (or $400 off) the normal $3,499 price. The specs are killer, too: inside is the 10-core Apple M1 Max chip with a 32-core GPU, flanked by a massive 32GB of RAM and a full 1TB SSD. That’s a creator’s dream for a very nice discounted price.
Our sister site Macworld’s review of the 2021 MacBook Pro absolutely adored it. “Fast, with a razor-sharp screen, excellent build quality, and a happy reunion with MagSafe, HDMI,and SD card readers, the 16in. MacBook Pro with M1 Max is a high-ranking professional computer,” the site wrote. The professional-grade laptop does away with the TouchBar, which some considered to be an extraneous distraction. Just don’t mind the notch.
A real plus, however, is Apple’s use of miniLED backlighting, which is a feature that’s being rolled into premium TVs. Local dimming zones enabled by miniLEDs approximate the fantastic contrast enabld by an OLED display — which, of course, is another highlight for the creative Mac audience.
