After reporting Apple accessories were now officially being sold on Amazon.ca, it’s also worth pointing out the company’s latest Apple Silicon-powered MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are also available on Amazon Canada.
Apple has the following M1-powered 13-inch MacBook Pro models available for pre-order right now, with delivery dates set far away, at March 1, 2021 (four listings total in both space grey and silver):
- MacBook Pro with Apple M1 Chip (13-inch, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) – $1699.99
- MacBook Pro with Apple M1 Chip (13-inch, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD) – $1949.99
As for the new 13-inch M1 MacBook Air, it also has a release date of March 1, 2021. There are only three listings available:
- MacBook Air with Apple M1 Chip (13-inch, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD; 7-core GPU) – $1,311.52 ($1299 on Apple.ca)
- MacBook Air with Apple M1 Chip (13-inch, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD; 7-core GPU) – $1,599.99 ($1549 on Apple.ca)
- MacBook Air with Apple M1 Chip (13-inch, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD) – $1,649.99
The nearly four-month gap from pre-order to delivery is pretty weird, but not unexpected. Apple most likely wants to have customers order directly from Apple.ca first, to avoid paying fees to sell on Amazon.ca, for its latest Macs.
Those with Amazon gift cards may be happy to hear about the addition of Apple products on the site. Sometimes, RBC Rewards offers sales on Amazon gift cards, now offering a way to save on your Apple purchases. Also, you get Prime shipping speeds as well and easy returns.
The addition of Macs on Amazon.ca may signal official sales of other Apple products might also be coming soon, such as iPad or even maybe iPhones.
