How to get the best deal on a new MacBook

Shoppers can easily save hundreds when purchasing a new MacBook by taking advantage of instant discounts and exclusive coupon savings from Apple authorized resellers. Those opting for a Late 2016 13-inch or 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, for instance, can save $150 to $465 off MSRP on the systems bundled with an AppleCare protection plan. Many resellers do not collect sales tax in a majority of states as well.

Late 2016 13-inch MacBook Pro systems with function keys (but no Touch Bar) are also marked down with total savings of $50 to $200 off MSRP on the laptops alone or $150 to $300 off configs bundled with AppleCare.

The smaller, Early 2016 12-inch MacBook can also be found at up to $150 off, while 13-inch MacBook Air models are now $65 to $200 off.
