If you're in the market for a Mac upgrade, looking at the prices at Apple's site doesn't exactly fill you with joy, especially if you want something that packs some power. Fortunately, B&H is offering a couple of 13-inch MacBook Pro discounts today only that could save you as much as $600. These models are brand new, though they are the 2017 version of the machine offered in a couple of configurations. Each is offered for $1,099.99.
Apple MacBook Pro 2017
This previous-gen MacBook Pro model is from 2017 but it's still packing plenty of power with a 7th-gen Intel i7 processor, 8GB RAM, and an ultrafast 512GB SSD. It also has a Retina display, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, and a 10-hour battery life.

The deal given is no longer valid and we do not have a better one. However, we have found some similar deals
Both of the models on sale are the non-Touch Bar versions of the machine with two Thunderbolt 3 ports in space gray. Each is equipped with a 7th-gen Intel Core i5 2.3GHz processor and Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640, with the differences coming down to RAM and SSD specs. If you go for the larger 512GB capacity, you'll get 8GB of RAM, whereas the less capacious 256GB version has twice the RAM at 16GB. Both are the same price, so pick whichever suits your needs best.
While the 13-inch MacBook Pro got an update last summer, there's relatively little difference between the current 13-inch model and the previous-gen on the spec sheet. Unless you need to squeeze every bit of power out of your machine (or really want the Touch Bar), you can save big by going for these discounted previous-gen models.
If you do want the 2019 model with Touch Bar, Amazon has some discounts worth checking out including $300 off select 256GB and 512GB versions. The entry-level 128GB model is down to $1,049.99 at Best Buy, though for the extra $50 you should probably go with one of the B&H deals above to get some extra storage space.
