Deals: Save 11% Off Retina MacBook Pro, 28% Off SSD Upgrades, 25% Off 16GB RAM
Everyone loves a good deal, and right now there are some particularly good deals on MacBook Pro Retina models available from Amazon. But if a brand new Mac isn’t in your immediate future, there’s also some pretty sweet discounts on existing SSD and RAM upgrades for MacBooks. Check them out…
Retina MacBook Pro Deals
Looking to buy a new Retina equipped MacBook Pro? You’re in luck, because Amazon is having some nice sales this weekend on Apple hardware, most notably the two base model Retina MacBook Pro’s are marked down by as much as 11%:
- MacBook Pro 13.3″ with Retina Display – $1515.59 (11% off, normally $1699)
- MacBook Pro 15.4-Inch with Retina Display for $1999.99 (9% off, normally $2199)
The upper-end models are also marked down by 7% if you’re in the market for either model with more disk space.
Mac Upgrade Deals
If you’d rather just upgrade an existing Mac, swapping a hard drive for an SSD and maxing out the RAM is always a good choice to gain some serious speed improvements. 16GB of RAM is offered at a huge discount and is a pretty amazing upgrade if your MacBook Pro supports it, and there two particularly good deals on popular SSD drives:
- Samsung 840 Series 250GB SSD for $180 (28% off, usually $250
- Samsung 840 Series 120GB SATA III SSD for $92.66 (34% off, normally $140
- Corsair 16GB RAM DDR3 SODIMM Memory Upgrade for $75(normally $115)
The SSD’s will fit just about any MacBook or MacBook Pro with a SATA 2.5″ drive bay, while the RAM is going to be limited to newer MacBook Pro’s that support 16GB. It’s always a good idea to double-check compatibility before buying and to run a RAM test after installing to make sure everything is A-OK.
As usual with Amazon, you get free shipping and some states don’t charge sales tax for online purchases, possibly making it an even better deal.
