Apple is reportedly preparing for the death of the regular MacBook Pro, according to early indications noticed by AppleInsider in Apple Store retail locations. The company is reportedly starting to pull any reference materials and demo units of the regular MacBook Pro, the model without a Retina display.
You can still go online to Apple’s store and buy the notebook, and AppleInsider said that stores will sell you one if they happen to be in stock. However, it seems that Apple Store locations aren’t actually putting them out on the showfloor, so folks are probably going to be more likely to buy a Retina MacBook Pro instead. To be fair, you probably shouldn’t be buying a MacBook Pro at all right now, whether it has a Retina display or not. Apple should be gearing up to refresh the line soon, one that may sport a unique OLED display. The newest model is about a year old.
On the other hand, if you’re looking to save a few bucks and don’t care about a Retina screen or the latest hardware, don’t let us stop you from grabbing a Macbook Pro. Plus, you still get an optical disc drive, which is, like, so totally old-school, man.
