With a range of MacBook models and configurations available, it’s important to make sure you’re getting the best price on the latest model and don’t be fooled by discounts on older MacBooks. So how can you make sure you’re finding the best deals? We are here to help.
Below are our top picks of today’s best MacBook deals, as well as a real-time price comparison at all major retailers for each of the MacBook models in Apple’s current lineup. If you find a so-called offer that we don’t list here, also check our table with the standard retail prices for each model, so you can be sure that you are dealing with a good offer.
How Much Do MacBooks Usually Cost?
For reference, here are the regular prices for the standard configurations of the current generation MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. Everything else is an older generation model (which is fine – as long as you buy it knowing it is, and factor in any ‘discounts’).
Apple does not offer reduced prices for its products. However, if you’d rather shop from Apple and nowhere else, consider shopping at the Apple Refurbished and Clearance Store. You can save $150 or more depending on the laptop you choose. Refurbished Macs are like new and come with a full warranty. Inventory at the Refurbished and Clearance Store varies from day to day. So if you don’t find what you’re looking for, check back later.
