13-inch MacBook Pro drops to $1,300
Coinciding with Apple's latest release of new Macs and accessories, the Canadian stores have made an additional change by dropping the price on its line of MacBook computers by up to $300. On the list are five different MacBook Pros, with the entry-level model dropping from $1,400 to $1,300. The most expensive 17-inch variant, previously available for $2,900, now costs just $2,600. The 13-inch with a 2.53GHz processor dropped by $150 down to $1,600, while the 2.53GHz, 15-inch Pro has been reduced from $2,000 to $1,800.
Additionally, the 1.86GHz MacBook Air with a 120GB hard drive has gone from $1,750 to $1,600, with the 2.13GHz model and 128GB SSD has dropped by $200. The company is also offering the 2.26GHz MacBook for a modest $50 discount.
Apple has yet to explain the sudden price drop for Canadian customers, although it could be related to the increase in the Canadian dollar. It remains unknown if further currency fluctuations will lead to additional price changes.
