Blutek USA (Top Rated Plus seller w/ 99.3% positive feedback from 122,285 buyers) via eBay Daily Deals offers Apple’s latest 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro 2.7GHz/8GB/256GB (model MF840LL/A) for $1,199.99 with free shipping. That’s $299 below list, $69 less than Apple charges for it in refurbished condition and a match for the best direct discount we’ve ever seen. As a further price comparison, it frequently drops to $1,250, but to see it below $1,200 is a real rarity. It features a 13.3-inch 2560 x 1600 Retina display, 802.11ac Wi‑Fi, HDMI video output and Apple’s all-new Force Touch trackpad.

Extend the factory warranty of your new Mac to 3-years by purchasing AppleCare with your savings. It’s currently available for $207.88 shipped (Reg. $249) via Amazon.

Apple’s 12-inch MacBook is still on sale at Best Buy with prices starting at $1,000 or $950 for students/faculty (Reg. $1,299).

And last but not least, three different current generation MacBook Air models are also receiving big price drops. Deals are available as low as $720 shipped.

It may be incredibly thin and light, but MacBook Pro with Retina display is also incredibly powerful. To achieve all that in a single design required relentless focus and a willingness to make bold decisions. Every millimeter was designed, engineered, built, and assembled to the most exacting performance standards. Bulky legacy technologies like the spinning hard drive and optical disc drive were left behind in favor of newer, higher-performance technologies — PCIe-based flash storage, for example. Flash is not only much faster and more reliable than a traditional hard drive, it takes up 90 percent less space. Which is one of many reasons MacBook Pro isn’t just extremely capable, it’s extremely portable, too.
