It may only just have been released, but it seems that retailers couldn’t wait to start cutting the price of Apple’s new 16-inch MacBook Pro.
We've seen plenty of savings on the 13- and 15-inch models in recent weeks, but the scale of the savings on the new flagship MacBook Pro came as a pleasant surprise. These deals first arose on Cyber Monday, but they're still going strong and represent amazing value if you're in the market for a top new music-making laptop.
In the US, you can save $200 on a 9th Generation i7 processor model with a 512GB SSD and 16GB of RAM, bringing the price down to just $2,199.99. If you want to spec things up, there’s also an eight-core i9 model with 16GB RAM and a 1TB drive going for $2,599.99. Again, that’s a $200 saving.

Over in the UK, the cheeky scamps over at BT are offering £120 off a 16-inch i7 MacBook Pro with 512GB of storage. They’ll let that one out of the warehouse door for £2,179.
BT is offering an even bigger discount on a 16-inch MacBook Pro with a 2.3GHz Intel Core i9 8-core processor, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB drive. This one is available for £2539.68, down from £2799.
With its new keyboard, excellent sound system and the ability to run many more plugins than its predecessor, the new MacBook Pro is a cracking laptop for music production, and with the discounts already rolling in, there’s no need to wait to buy one.
