MacBook Pro 13" M2

Apple has updated the sheet of its new computer, the MacBook Pro 13″ M2 announced during the last keynote of WWDC 2022. The Californian firm has added two dates: that of the opening of pre-ordersand that of the first deliveries and availability in stores.

The MacBook PRo 13″ M2: when can we buy it?

You will have to wait until friday june 17 next to buy the machine. Pre-orders will open at 2 p.m. French time that day. The first deliveries will take place the following week, Friday, June 24. Of course, only the quickest to place an order will receive their machine within 7 days. Latecomers will certainly have to wait a little longer, given the shortage situation currently affecting many subcontractors and tech companies, including Apple.

Which models are available for purchase, at what price?

The base MacBook Pro 13″ M2 costs €1599. However, you can configure it with various improvements, knowing that, as a base, it integrates an M2 CPU 8-core chip and 10-core GPU, with 256 SSD and 8 GB of RAM:

  • MacBook Pro 13″ M2 8 GB 256 SSD: €1,599 (first price)
  • MacBook Pro 13″ M2 16 GB 256 SSD: €1,829
  • MacBook Pro 13″ M2 24 GB 256 SSD: €2,059

How to get your MacBook Pro 13″ M2 quickly and at the best price?

Needless to say, if you are interested in the MacBook Pro 13″ M2, you will have to try to be among the first to place an order. There are, however, tricks to take the lead and give yourself more luck. We advise you for example avoid the official Apple channel, either the official website or the Apple Store app on iOS and iPadOS. Better give it a shot at resellers such as Darty, Fnac, Boulanger, Cdiscount or even Amazon. These alternative channels are generally less popular with potential first-time buyers.

In addition, here are some other points to consider in order to save a few seconds when ordering:

1 – Know precisely the desired configuration : out of the question to think about when to put the MacBook Pro in the basket! You have to know already a few hours before which model you want to buy, with which configuration. It may be interesting to designate a second or even a third choice beforehand, if the first choice is no longer available.

2 – Check your credit card limit : a MacBook Pro 13″ M2 is expensive, more than 1500 euros for the basic model. It is therefore better to take precautions and check that the ceiling of your credit card allows such an expense in one go, but also if you still have a margin in relation to purchases made in the last 30 rolling days.

3 – Identify yourself and check your payment settings in advance : in order to be as efficient as possible at the time of the order, it is better to avoid having to enter the numbers of your credit card by hand or enter your delivery address. This can be done long before on most merchant sites. So, take the lead and check that your Amazon, Darty or even FNAC or Boulanger account has all the information necessary for the order.

If nothing goes as planned?

If you wasted too much time during the ordering process, check the delivery times announced for the model added to the basket. So be prepared to change finishes or configurations if possible. And always check other merchant sites.

Finally, if you haven’t managed to get any model in time, you still have the option of going to the Apple Store the day the machine is put on the shelf on June 24. But here again, it will also probably be necessary to be among the first to avoid out of stock!
