Macbook Pro 2012 price drop disapointment?

Posted:
in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014


I bought my MacBook Pro 2012 15” 2.6 MHz, 750 Gb HD, 8 Gb RAM for US $2200 on June  24th. After 1 month, the price has dropped around US $100 …


This is a good thing for people that is planning to buy a new MacBook Pro, however, it makes me feel a little bit uncomfortable and I really wonder if it is normal for Mac to drop prices so fast… if this is the case I will learn something from this experience and next time Mac release a new product I won’t buy it right away but wait at least couple of months…

    No, the price is the same. Apple doesn't lower prices mid-revision.

    Third party retailers set their own pricing. Amazon even had pre-order discounts.

    Right, because you bought your MacBook Pro as an investment rather than a tool? I can't believe some of these insane posts. If a reseller lowers the price by $100 within a few months of you buying your machine, that makes your machine less powerful? If the reality of technology getting less expensive over time bothers you emotionally, god help you.

    There's nothing wrong with wanting the most for your money. I seriously doubt the above is the case.
