The current price for the 15″ 2.6 ghz Retina MacBook Pro is $2,799.00 on It has free shipping and takes 3-4 days to get to your door. You also have to pay state sales tax. In my case it is 6% which works out to $2,966.94.

Or you can get the exact same configuration on for $2,649.99

You don’t pay sales tax and if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, then you can have it shipped to your door the next day for $3.99.

That’s a savings of 11% off the Apple price! You save $316.95!

I’m doing it… go buy the 15″ Retina MacBook Pro from amazon…
