Best Apple MacBook deals for 2020: 13-inch MacBook Pro dips to all-time low price


Sarah Tew/CNET

In the event you’re out there for an Apple laptop computer, the time to purchase is now. Amazon has sliced $249 from the worth of the 13-inch MacBook Professional, bringing it all the way down to $1,050. That is the all-time lowest worth we have seen for this Professional mannequin, launched in summer season 2019 — and $50 lower than what you’d pay for a 128GB MacBook Air on the Apple Retailer. 

Amazon has additionally discounted the 256GB mannequin, which now prices $1,250. That is the lowest worth we have ever seen for that mannequin, too. These are nice offers on nice laptops.

The MacBook Air is also on sale at Amazon, B&H Photograph and elsewhere. The bottom configuration now prices $949, which is $150 off the sticker worth. That famous, I would advocate spending the additional $100 to step as much as the Professional mannequin.

(Additionally: Amazon and others proceed to supply what seems to be like a compelling deal on the previous MacBook Air model for $750. However it’s really the earlier, earlier mannequin — from 2017. Do not buy it. In the event you’re set on the Air, spend $200 extra on the one released in July.)

In the event you’re out there for a bigger MacBook Professional — that’s, the 16-inch mannequin Apple dropped within the fall — Amazon continues to supply $210 off the worth of the entry-level configuration. (Notice that Apple’s Licensed Refurbished retailer has not too long ago began promoting the 16-inch MacBook Professional for about 15% off the record worth.) 

Yet another deal value noting: B&H Photograph is providing $300 off the 16-inch Professional mannequin with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD.

Amazon is providing $150 off the 2019 MacBook Air. Notice that that is the most recent mannequin with the Retina True Tone show that Apple launched in July. All issues being equal, you are higher off spending a further $100 on the closely discounted Professional mannequin.
