The iStore, the retail arm of South African Apple distributor Core Group, has unveiled pricing for the new MacBook Pro models with Apple silicon. They start at R36 299 without a trade-in.
According to iStore, this will buy you a 14-inch model with an eight-core M1 Pro CPU and 14-core GPU, 512GB of SSD storage and 16GB of RAM. With the storage upgraded to 1TB, a 10-core M1 Pro CPU and a 16-core GPU, the price is R45 399.
The iStore does not currently list an M1 Max version of the 14-model model, likely due to limited product availability.
