Grab one while they last: MacMall on Monday became the first reseller to reflect availability of all 8 different retail configurations of Apple's Late 2016 MacBook Pros with Touch Bar, which the Apple authorized reseller will begin shipping out as soon as the next day. In addition to skipping the 4-5 week wait at Apple, MacMall is also knocking $15 to $34 off each model.
Update Nov. 21 @ 6:30 p.m. Eastern: MacMall is now shipping two 13" Late 2016 MacBook Pro configurations with Touch Bar. The remaining six retail configurations are now on backorder.
The AI Mac Price Guide on Monday updated to reveal that Apple authorized reseller MacMall is expecting near-term availability of eight new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar configurations, including four 13.3" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models and four 15" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models.
Specifically, these configurations saw their status updated from pre-order to "Not In Stock. Order now. Usually ships next day." Intrigued, we contacted MacMall to get the lowdown. Here's what we learned: the 13.3" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar configurations listed below are due to arrive at MacMall before the end of the week and begin shipping immediately thereafter. The four 15.4" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar configurations listed below will arrive next week and begin shipping out thereafter. Once MacMall has sold through this initial shipment of Late 2016 MacBook Pros with Touch Bar, its website will update to reflect longer wait times.
Pricing and quick links for each of the eight models are below. These initial allotments of these MacBook Pros are expected to sell out quickly, so don't delay:
