If you’re preparing to go back to school and require a more powerful laptop than the new M2-powered MacBook Air, you might want to consider investing in Apple’s 14- and 16-inch Macbook Pro models today now that they’ve dropped to new all-time lows. Best Buy is currently selling the 14-inch, M1 Pro-powered MacBook Pro in space gray with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage for $1,599, a record-breaking $400 discount. The 16-inch configuration, meanwhile, is on sale at Best Buy and Amazon with Apple’s M1 Pro chip, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, a 10-core CPU, and a 16-core GPU in space gray for $2,099 ($400 off).
Both laptops offer lightning-fast performance that makes them ideal for content creation and creative work. Unlike the new MacBook Air, they each offer stunning Mini LED displays as well and some of the longest-lasting batteries we’ve ever tested. They also tout a terrific selection of ports, including a Thunderbolt 4 port, an HDMI port, and a full-size SDXC slot. Plus, you can use the 16-inch MacBook Pro with three external displays and a 4K TV at the same time. Read our 14- and 16-inch Macbook Pro reviews.
