Amazon, Best Buy offer discounts on MacBook Pro
Both Amazon and Best Buy are offering new discounts on the MacBook Pro. Best Buy's prices are part of a <a href="http://www.bestbuy.com/site/searchpage.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&id=pcat17071&type=page&ks=960&st=Macbook_Pros_On _Sale&sc=Global&cp=1&sp=%2Bcurrentprice+skuid&qp=q 4d6163626f6f6b5f50726f735f4f6e5f53616c65~~cabcat05 00000%23%231%23%238~~cabcat0502000%23%231%23%238~~ ncpcmcat247400050001%23%230%23%238&list=y&usc=All+ Categories&nrp=15&iht=n">two-day sale</a>, running today and Saturday. A 13-inch, 2.5GHz non-Retina Pro for example costs $1,050 at the retailer versus Apple's normal $1,199 pricetag. At the opposite end of the spectrum, a 15-inch, 2.6GHz Retina Pro is $199 below Apple's cost at $2,600. For any Pro, Best Buy is offering an extra $20 off if a person orders online but picks up at a store.<br /><br />Amazon appears to have lowered its prices to better compete. For comparison, the company is offering the above 13-inch system for $1,100, and the 15-inch Retina model for $2,600.

The vendors involved may be trying to clear out holiday stock, or simply improve first-quarter traffic. Hardware refreshes for the Air and the Pro aren't expected for several months.
