MacBook deals are seeing some fantastic price cuts in the latest back to school sales. From the latest MacBook Pro and Air models to big discounts on older versions, there’s plenty of reductions on luxury Apple laptops right now. Plus, if you’re a student you’ll also find free AirPods thrown into the mix as well.
The latest MacBook Air has dropped down to $899 this week at a number of retailers (£949 in the UK). Among them is Apple, which is also offering a free pair of AirPods with every MacBook purchase. That means you can save cash and bag some extra value by shopping Apple direct, especially considering this configuration has been listed for $999 in the past.
If you’re looking for MacBook Pro deals, you’ll be shopping at B&H Photo for a 13-inch model or Amazon for the massive 16-inch powerhouse. The former is still holding well at $1,179 for the 2019 model, a great sales price that’s stuck around for a few weeks now. Of course, if you’re after Dolby Atmos speakers, the Magic keyboard and double the storage you can also save $100 on the 2020 version, with similar savings available at Amazon in the UK.
If you need some serious power, however, there’s still time to save $300 on the 16-inch MacBook Pro. This model did drop below $2,000 a couple of weeks ago, but that price certainly didn’t last long. That means this is your best shot at picking up a 16-inch MacBook deal for the foreseeable future.
We’re rounding up all these MacBook deals just below, but you’ll find plenty more prices further down the page as well.
