With October just around the corner, we’re almost certain to get some new Macs very soon. But if you’ve had your eye on a 14-inch or 16-inch MacBook Pro, there’s never been a better time to buy one. Amazon is selling all configurations and colors of the M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBook Pro for $300 off right now—and we’ve never seen a better price.
Amazon has had discounts on the MacBook Pro over the past several weeks, but we’ve never seen this many models on sale. No matter what you want to spend, you’ll find a discounted configuration that fits your budget, though some models have a $99 automatic discount at checkout and may need to be added to your cart to see the full sale price:
14-inch MacBook Pro (10-core/16-core M1 Pro, 16GB RAM, 1TB, Silver/Space Gray): $2,199/£2,149 (usually $2,499/£2,399)
16-inch MacBook Pro (10-core/16-core M1 Pro, 16GB RAM, 512GB, Silver/Space Gray): $2,199/£2,219 (usually $2,499/£2,399)
16-inch MacBook Pro (10-core/16-core M1 Pro, 16GB RAM, 1TB, Silver/Space Gray): $2,399/£2,349 (usually $2,699/£2,599)
16-inch MacBook Pro (10-core/32-core M1 Max, 32GB RAM, 1TB, Silver/Space Gray): $3,099/£3,036 (usually $3,499/£3,299) which is $400 off!
Those prices represent $300 off Apple’s MSRP–the high-end $3,099 MacBook Pro is actually $400 off. While the processors and display sizes differ, you’re otherwise getting the same machine: a Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion, excellent battery life, fast charging, and numerous ports including Thunderbolt 4, HDMI, and MagSafe. We loved the 14-inch model in our 4.5-star review and called it “a truly satisfying laptop” that “can now wear the crown of the professional’s choice without hesitation.”
There may be a faster MacBook Pro with M2 Pro/M2 Max upgrade on the way at Apple’s October event, but you won’t be able to get them this cheap for a while. So go grab one before they’re gone forever.
U.K. Readers: If you are in the UK this is probably your best chance to get a MacBook Pro at the lower price as we expect that when Apple introduces the new models prices will increase significantly due to the depreciation of the pound to the dollar. This is likely to be the cheapest you will be able to get a MacBook Pro for a very long time!
