4th of July sales are out in full force this weekend and we’ve just spotted one of the best sales of the weekend.
Today only, Best Buy has the MacBook Pro M1 on sale for $999.99 (opens in new tab). That’s $300 off and the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this laptop. It’s also one of the best MacBook deals we’ve ever seen. By comparison, Amazon has it on sale for $1,208 (opens in new tab). If you want a more powerful Mac, Amazon is taking $200 off the 14-inch and 16-inch models.
Despite not being the newest model, this MacBook still definitely holds up when it comes to performance. In our MacBook Pro M1 review, this laptop’s Apple M1 chip delivered seriously impressive speeds that most Windows laptops can’t beat. For example, it took the MacBook Pro just 12 minutes to transcode a 4K video, faster than the 15 minutes it took the Dell XPS 13.
It has great battery life, too. This MacBook Pro M1 lasted a very respectable 10 hours in our tests, which is plenty to get you through the day without needing to reach for a charger.
The MacBook Pro 2020’s keyboard and display also make it a great productivity laptop. With a bright and colorful display, everything you view on the 2020 MacBook Pro will look great, despite the fact it’s unfortunately not in 4K. The keyboard is comfortably sized, and thanks to the new Magic Keyboard’s pillowy soft feel, your fingers will fly across the keys.
