Killer Deal: MacBook Pro Now $300 Off

Update May 24: The base 13-inch MacBook Pro has dropped further in price to $999.99 ($300 off). But keep in mind, this base model may drop an extra $100 on Amazon Prime Day. (Amazon briefly sold it for $899 in April). 

New Mac models usually mean markdowns on older inventory. And that's certainly the case now that Apple has introduced refreshed MacBook Pros with new keyboards and faster processors.

The 2019 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and 15-inch MacBook Pro announced by Apple this week offer a new butterfly keyboard design and faster 8th- and 9th-generation Intel Core processors. So the 2017 and 2018 versions of those MacBooks have gotten a price cut at both Amazon and Best Buy, where you can save anywhere from $200 to $300 on the older laptops.

The bigger the laptop, the bigger the savings. Both Amazon and Best Buy are knocking $300 off the price of two 15-inch MacBook Pro models, while the price cuts varies depending on which 13-inch MacBook Pro you've got your eye on.

Here's how the savings break down by model.
