Update (11/20 4:259m): The below 13” MBP w/ Retina is now out of stock. and the 15″ inch is only available for in-store pickup.

Best Buy has a couple late 2013 MacBook Pros with deep discounts today. The 13.3” MacBook Pro with Retina display (ME866LL/A) is $1,359.99 shipped, which is as much as $340 or more under some listings and $140 under the next best price we can find from a trusted retailer. It has a 2.6GHz processor, 8GB RAM and 512GB of flash storage. While the newer models are slightly faster, some feel that considering the price difference the late 2013 models can offer a better value for users that don’t require the latest and greatest hardware. A current gen model with similar specs will run you as much as $1800.

You’ll also find a late 2013 15” model (ME294LL/A) for $1,999.99 shipped, which is down as much $500 compared to other retailers and $200 under the next best price we can find. It packs a 2.3GHz processor, 16GB RAM and 512GB of flash storage. More details on both models below.

As usual with Best Buy’s MacBook deals, with access to a .edu email you can knock an extra $50 off right now.
