Just this past week, Apple opened preorders on a brand new series of MacBook Pro laptops - complete with the new M3 Pro and M3 Max chipsets.
Almost unbelievably, it looks like there's already a way to get a significant price cut on one of these slick machines over at the retailer Adorama. Available right now is a $200 discount for members of its 'Adorama VIP' membership program.
Membership is currently free, so all you need to do here is make an account and log in. Then, you'll want to make sure you're opted in for Adorama's reward program. Next, you'll want to use the code APINSIDER at checkout to apply your discount.
While there are a few hoops to jump through here, this is highly likely to be the best discount you'll get on these machines for a while, even with the upcoming Black Friday deals.

The best Black Friday MacBook deal this year?
When I initially wrote my guide to the MacBook Pro M3 preorders, I suggested that we may see discounts of around $50 to $100 on these machines over Black Friday if we're lucky. This particular promotion absolutely blows those predictions out of the water - even with the various criteria for eligibility.
Generally speaking, Black Friday MacBook deals tend to run anywhere between $100 to $400 off, so this is a really healthy discount in context. It's also generally the case that it's the older models that get the lion's share of discounts on the big day.
