If you are looking to buy a new MacBook Pro you don’t have to pay full price. Our team of Apple experts search the web all year round for the top deals, offers and discounts for the MacBook Pro – seeking out the best money-off offers to save you time.
In this article we also run through some tips and explain Apple’s pricing structure, so that you can be sure you are getting the best discount available.
You should keep in mind that there are three different MacBook Pro sizes: the 13in, 14in and 16in models. The 14in and 16in MacBook Pro were updated with M1 Pro chips in 2021, and a new 13in MacBook Pro with M2 chip went on sale on June 17, 2022. Although Apple is now selling a new 13in model, you may be able to get some good deals on the discontinued M1 13in model, as resellers clear out old stock. If you are struggling to find a reseller that has the MacBook Pro in stock read this: Where is the MacBook Pro in stock?
Black Friday deals season isn’t quite here yet, but that doesn’t mean there are no deals – we see deals for the MacBook Pro all year round. There may even be a second Prime Day just around the corner, if the rumors are to be believed, which could mean we’ll see some good MacBook deals on Amazon.
The 13in MacBook Pro went on sale on June 17 and stock seems to be in good supply in Apple’s online store. Until recently there was a few weeks wait for delivery for the 14in or 16in MacBook Pro, but there seems to be sufficient stock now that Apple is promising next day delivery. It doesn’t always pay to buy from Apple though – Apple never discounts, so if you want to pay less you need to look at elsewhere.

MacBook Pro: Price
There are three 16in MacBook Pro models, two 14in MacBook Pro models, both with M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, and two 13in MacBook Pro models with M2 chips.
The M2 chip is not superior to the M1 Pro, it’s the next generation of the M1. Apple’s chips start of with a standard chip aimed at consumers, and build up to chips that are focuses on pros and power users. So the M1 Pro features more graphics cores and supports more RAM than the M1 and M2, but the M2 Pro will be superior to the M1 Pro.
Here’s Apple’s pricing and standard configurations for the current MacBook Pro lineup. Note that prices for the 13in MacBook Pro went up in the UK and some other parts of the world.
14-inch MacBook Pro M1 Pro Chip, 8‑Core CPU/14‑Core GPU, 512GB, 16GB RAM: $1,999/£1,899 M1 Pro Chip, 10‑Core CPU/16‑Core GPU, 1TB, 16GB RAM: $2,499/£2,399

Where to buy a MacBook Pro
There are limited stocks leading to some shipping delays, but you can find the MacBook Pro on sale at various locations. You could buy a MacBook Pro directly from Apple, or at stores and Apple Premium Resellers around the world – many of whom offer discounts on new and old Macs, so it’s worth shopping around. You can find out where the MacBook Pro is in stock or read our Where to buy a Mac article for more advice.
While Apple rarely discounts new Macs, from time to time there are some excellent deals to be had in Apple’s Refurbished Store. The Macs in Apple’s refurbished store may be ex-display stock, or they may have been returned to Apple due to a fault, but they are fully reconditioned now and come with a full year’s warranty. Read about buying a refurbished Mac. It’s not only Apple that sells refurbished Macs, but Apple does offer some great incentives to buy from Apple’s Refurbished Store, so we do recommend taking a look there for great MacBook Pro deals.
We often see the cheaper M1 MacBook Pro on sale on the refurbished store, which means you could get the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro Apple M1 Chip with 8‑Core CPU and 8‑Core GPU with 256GB SSD for just £1,099/$1,099. A saving of £200/$200.
Amazon also has a certified refurbished store for Apple products but we would advise against buying any products that are older than five years – most of the products we see on the Amazon refurbished store are unfortunately very old. Another place to look is BackMarket US and BackMarket UK, which sells refurbished Macs and other Apple products.
