    The only difference between this one and the one which Apple is selling currently for $1999 + tax (close to $600 more) is that the latest one has a minimally faster 3GHz processor.

    This is a good price.

    Should bear in mind though that the $500 off is with respect to the original sale price in 2013. A comparable refurbished unit from Apple goes for $1599 + tax today. New units in this specific configuration are not available. The current Macbook Pro models were updated in July 2014 and came with a small speed bump, 8G standard RAM and a lower price (for the US at least).

    If you configure the current model as close as possible as the one B&H is selling, you get a very small speed bump, and you pay $1999 + tax. Basically paying close to $600 more for a I7-4578U instead of I7-4558U.
