The base model of the 13-inch MacBook Pro might not come with the highly coveted Touch Bar and Touch ID features, but you’ll find that most of the time, users only require better performance and high battery life from their machine. The starting price of the 13-inch MacBook Pro 2016 is a hefty $1,499, but if you wanted to snag yourself a decent discount, then here’s how you can get it on Amazon.

Amazon Offering the 13-Inch MacBook Pro 2016 for $1,399 – Hasn’t Specified When the Deal Will End

If you visit Amazon’s website right now, the 13-inch MacBook Pro 2016, which carries a starting price of $1,499 is now being offered at $1,399 and for the Silver color edition. Just in case you were wondering what sort of hardware you’ll end up with the 13-inch notebook, those details have been listed below:

  • 2.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i5
  • Intel Core i5 dual-core processor running at 2.0GHz (Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz)
  • Two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports
  • Intel Iris Graphics 540
  • 8GB RAM
  • 256GB PCIe-based internal storage

While the configuration might not be all that powerful, the latest 13-inch MacBook Pro is able to surpass the 2015 13-inch model by a small margin, despite running at a considerably slower clock speed. In addition, only the storage is upgradable in this particular model and since its form factor is proprietary, chances are you’ll be fresh out of luck when searching for one of these. However, you will be pleased to hear that the default storage present inside the notebook goes bonkers in the sequential read and write speeds department, meaning that your machine will be faster and more responsive compared to previous generation products.

Most users will complain about the two meager Thunderbolt 3 ports provided, which ultimately means that they will have to invest even more on accessories and dongles. However, the upside to having a Thunderbolt 3 port is that it can be used for daisy-chaining your displays, transferring storage, hooking up several external displays and charge the MacBook Pro simultaneously.

In other words, you’re getting a complete package, even though you will be required to spend that additional money. It has not been detailed on Amazon when the deal will expire, but you should not wait to find out right?
