The flash Black Friday sale drops the price of last year’s base model MacBook Pro in silver to $1,599, down from Apple’s original price of $2,399 last year. That is by far the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this particular model.
The base model 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro is equipped with a 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD storage, and both dedicated AMD Radeon Pro 450 and integrated Intel HD Graphics 530 graphics.
While newer 2017 MacBook Pro models with Kaby Lake processors were released in May, the performance improvements driven by the small bump in base and turbo frequencies are relatively minor and shouldn’t be a big deal for most customers.
