B&H Photo-Video offers the 3.57-lb. Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display Core i5 Dual 2.5GHz 13″ Laptop, model no. MD213LL/A, bundled with Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac for $1,499 with free shipping. (Choose the software under “Buy Together and Save”.) That’s $15 under the lowest total price we could find for these items if purchased separately elsewhere and the best no-rebate price we’ve seen for this bundle. (We saw it for $25 less two weeks ago, although it included rebate hassles then). The MacBook features an Intel Core i5 2.5GHz dual-core processor, 13.3″ 2560×1600 LED-backlit IPS display, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 802.11n wireless, Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, and more.
