I’m expecting to see some epic MacBook discounts during Prime Day, but it appears Amazon is offering those deals a bit early. The retail giant is taking $200 off every MacBook Pro model.
My personal pick is the 14-inch MacBook Pro on sale for $1,799 at Amazon (opens in new tab). That’s $200 off and the second-lowest price we’ve ever seen for this base configuration. This laptop has been out of stock for awhile and even now it’s ship date isn’t till July 8. So I’d recommend getting this deal today because stock of this laptop has been unstable. Yes, there’s a new MacBook Pro 13-inch M2 laptop, but the M1 Pro is more powerful than the new M2 chip.
The MacBook Pro is hands down one of the most powerful laptops around. Whether you opt for the 14.2-inch or 16-inch model, you’re getting one of the best laptops on the market.
In our Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch review, we were impressed with its blazing performance, gorgeous mini-LED display and the upgraded 1080p webcam. We were also fond of the fact that some of the best MacBook Pro features made a long-awaited comeback, some of which include the HDMI port, SD card slot and MagSafe.
We praised the refreshed Magic Keyboard, which not only makes typing more comfortable than ever, but also included function keys instead of the Touch Bar.
In our tests, the 14-inch MacBook Pro’s battery life lasted just over 14 hours when used for general web surfing over Wi-Fi, which means it could easily get you through a whole day or a long flight.
If you want a bigger screen and more battery life, you’ll want to opt for the 16-inch model. In our Macbook Pro 16-inch review, we squeezed over 15 hours on our test. Otherwise, both machines are nearly identical.
This isn’t the first time we see these MacBooks on sale at this price. However, last time they hit this price point they sold out fast. So don’t sleep on this deal.
