It was not even two months ago that Apple introduced the 16-inch MacBook Pro. It’s a beastly machine in both size and power. As with most things new and high-tech, it’s also not cheap. Thankfully, right now at Amazon you can get it for the lowest price yet. Depending on the configuration you choose, you’ll save either $250 or $300. Either way you go, you’re getting the lowest price we’ve ever seen on these MBPs anywhere.

Prior to November 2019, the biggest MacBook you could get was 15 inches. Then along came this sizable laptop, which runs on ninth-generation Intel chips and also corrects a few of the questionable design decisions Apple has made in the MacBook line for the better part of the last decade.
MacBook owners have been grumbling about the butterfly keyboards ever since Apple introduced them many years ago. These keyboards offered very little travel and could be compromised if even a speck of dust gets under a key. The 16-inch MacBook Pro has a fully redesigned keyboard that offers more key travel and better reliability. It also has a physical escape key and brings back the “inverted-T” arrow keys, much to the relief of some owners of recent MacBook Pros.
It also sports the Touch Bar, a customizable touchscreen that sits above the number keys. That’s where you’ll find the TouchID sensor that lets you escape from the tyranny of having to type in passwords. Trust me, it’s a glorious time-saver. Not only that, but the speakers are incredible.
The only downside of this deal is that the 512GB configuration is backordered until February 5 at the time of this writing. If you need a laptop sooner, spring for the beefy Intel Core i9 model. If you can wait and don’t need the extra power and storage, grab the less-expensive one. Either way you go, you’ll be getting an incredibly powerful and gorgeous MacBook Pro that ought to last you many years to come.
