The refurbished 13.3-inch MacBook Pro 2.7GHz Dual-core Intel i5 with Retina Display is now priced at $1,099, which has a $200 discount. Whereas, the refurbished 13.3-inch MacBook Pro 2.0GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 with Retina Display in Silver is now being sold at $1,269, which has a $230 price drop.
Meanwhile, Apple followers can recall that the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro 2.0GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 with Retina Display in Silver was just released last October 2016. With barely 5 months of existence, it is intriguing to note why the model is already included in the refurbished products list.
The huge $230 discount on the current MacBook Pro seems to hint on the debut of the upcoming successor. Is the Cupertino-based tech giant trying to sell out all existing stocks of the current model to make space for the upcoming flagship?
With regard to specs rumors, the anticipated 2017 MacBook Pro is reportedly coming out with the latest chips from Intel. The new MacBook Pro will have the new Kaby Lake processors to power up the new laptop.
The theory stems from the statement of KGI Securities analyst Min-Chi Kuo saying the new Kaby Lake processors will start a large-scale production in the third quarter.
Furthermore, the anticipated 2017 MacBook Pro is expected to come with an improved design. Mobipicker predicts the new laptop might also come in a new Jet Black or Matte Black color.
