The Source**Open Box**2019 MacBook Pro 16 Inch with Touchbar
Thoughts on buying an open box 2019 MacBook Pro 16 inch with touchbar 512 GB storage, 16GB RAM for $2399? The price when released back in 2019 was $2999 I believe, so I’m saving $600. I’m hoping to replace my 2012 MacBook Pro which is on its last legs. I really want to upgrade to a larger screen size but do not want to spend $3149 on the new 16 inch MacBook Pro (I’m quite fond of the touchbar). However, after some research I’ve noted with open box it’s a hit or miss and the intel cores are already being replaced with M1 and possibly M2 this year. Do you think it’s worth getting a 3 year old laptop, or should I just go for the 2021 MacBook Pro with M1 chip?
