Shopping for MacBook Pro 2021 with M1 Pro chipset? Watch out for this Amazon India listing

If you're eager to buy the new MacBook Pro with the M1 Pro chipset, you should wait. And if you happen to see this Amazon listing suggest otherwise, you should ignore it.

Apple recently announced two new MacBook Pro models at its Unleashed event. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro 2021 come with the newest M1 Pro and M1 Max processors. These laptops are set to launch in India soon, but their availability has been delayed slightly. If you’re eager to buy the new MacBook Pro with the M1 Pro chipset, you should wait. And if you happen to see this Amazon listing suggest otherwise, you should ignore it.

Well-known Amazon seller Appario has listed the 2021 MacBook Pro with M1 Pro on the e-commerce website. But this is an incorrect listing. While the title mentions the 2021 MacBook Pro 14-inch model with M1 Pro chipset, 16GB RAM, and 256GB storage, the listing is actually of the 2020 MacBook Pro with a 13-inch display and M1 chipset.

This is a very misleading page as consumers will be looking to buy the 2021 MacBook Pro M1 Pro or M1 Max models in India right now. The listing on Amazon shows the seller as Appario, which is a well-known seller of Apple products in the country. This would only further persuade consumers to purchase the product. However, the listing is actually of the 13-inch MacBook Pro model with the M1 chipset, so you should be aware before proceeding to checkout.

The MacBook Pro model is listed with a price tag of Rs 1,09,990, which should also be a hint that you’re looking at the wrong listing. The new MacBook Pro 14-inch model with the M1 Pro chipset is priced at Rs 1,94,900, while the same model with the M1 Max chip is priced at Rs 2,39,900. The 16-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 Pro chip starts from Rs 2,39,900.

According to the Apple website, the listing of the new MacBook Pro shows a new availability date of October 29th. The Cupertino giant had earlier announced that the laptops would be available in India from October 26th.
