For those readers in the market for one of Apple's brand new MacBook Pros with Retina display, AppleInsider's Price Guides now list 35 different 13- and 15-inch configurations, the majority of which are shipping in 24 hours at the lowest prices to be found, thanks to instant discount coupons and tax-free options.

MacBook Pro Retina Update


The new MacBook Pro with Retina display lineup brings Intel's fourth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, with next-generation integrated graphics, 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity and new memory options from 4GB up to 16GB. With the component changes, the new 13-inch Pro has a battery life of nine hours, while the larger-screened 15-inch version can go up eight hours per charge. Apple also shaved $200 from the starting price of both the 13- and 15-inch models, bringing the thin but powerful laptops down to $1,299 and $1,999, respectively.

However, any AppleInsider readers who use the MacMall links in this article (see price tables below) or our Price Guides and then enter Promo Code APPLEINSIDER02 on the product page will save an additional 3% off the retailer's already discounted prices, yielding the lowest prices anywhere on the just-announced MacBook Pros. The 3% AppleInsider reader discount is available only when ordering online and online orders are processed in the order they are received. (The same coupon also works for all MacBook Airs and iMacs).

Thus far, 35 assorted configurations of the new Retina MacBook Pros are eligible for the discount in the Price Guide. If buying from MacMall, it should be noted that the reseller is still reflecting its most accurate shipping times in the product description immediate above the product photo for these new models, rather than near the coupon field (see image above). Of the 35 configurations listed by the reseller, more than half are available to ship in 24 hours. The remaining ship in 5-7 business days.


Retina MacBook Pros bundled with 3-Years of AppleCare



Meanwhile, readers looking to attach a 3-year AppleCare Extended Protection Plan to their early- or late-2013 MacBook Pros can also use our Mac+AppleCare Price Guide (relevant segments also below) to see the combined savings with B&H's exclusive AppleCare bundle pricing (easy 5-step help guide). There are currently around 20 or so new Retina MacBook Pro configurations available for this bundle pricing:

Both MacMall & B&H offer free shipping on each Mac order and B&H Photo only charges sales tax to orders shipped to NY, while MacMall only collects sales tax in CA, IL, NY, TN, MN, GA, NC, and WI. This will yield even greater savings for readers outside those states.
