Yes, it was a limited time offer by Lazada. I will continue to monitor regularly the price and will post here if I spot any deals with 7% or higher discount.
Thank you! Do they have discount for iPad also?

My 16 MacBook Pro has popping sound watching Netflix on safari when u jump the video....
I took the standard 1tb config. Anyone has similar issue? I tested out a 16 model at epi Center no such problem...
Is it fixable by hardware or software issue?

This should be fixed in the latest OS update.

my OS is up to date since day 1. I still hear the popping.
Anyone watches Netflix on safari? It only happens when I back up the video or closes it. Not sure if I should send it in...l

I have the same MBP as yours. It's running on the latest 15.2 update and I'm still hearing loud popping sounds on Safari. However, all other apps I tested have been resolved. If you were to use Chrome, you won't hear any pop.

This is a software issue known on T2 Chip based Macs. Just wait for 15.3 update and hope for the best.

Yes sometimes there would be discounts, but if you want savings; I would recommend you buy refurbished iPads instead but I digress as this forum is for MacBook Pro 16”
