Update: The MacBook Pro M2 is also now on sale for $200 off at Best Buy.
Earlier this month, Best Buy offered the MacBook Pro M1 for just $999. It’s been one of the best back to school sales I’ve seen this season. Unfortunately, the sale lasted for about 24 hours, but there’s good news because Best Buy’s epic deal is back.
For a limited time, Best Buy has the MacBook Pro M1 on sale for $999.99 (opens in new tab). That’s $300 off and the lowest price I’ve ever seen for this laptop. It’s also one of the best MacBook deals I’ve seen this year. By comparison, Amazon has it on sale for $1,269 (opens in new tab). Other MacBook Pro models are also on sale at Amazon/Best Buy.
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.
