If you’re in the market for an Apple laptop, the time to buy is now. Amazon has sliced $249 from the price of the 13-inch, bringing it down to $1,050. That’s the all-time lowest price we’ve seen for this Pro model, — and $50 less than what you’d pay for a 128GB at the Apple Store.
Amazon has also discounted the 256GB model, which now costs $1,250. That’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen for that model, too. These are great deals on great laptops.
The MacBook Air is also on sale at Amazon, B&H Photo and elsewhere. The base configuration now costs $949, which is $150 off the sticker price. That noted, I’d recommend spending the extra $100 to step up to the Pro model.
(Also: Amazon and others continue to offer what looks like a compelling deal on the previous MacBook Air model for $750. But it’s actually the previous, previous model — from 2017. Don’t buy it. If you’re set on the Air, spend $200 more on the one released in July.)
If you’re in the market for a larger MacBook Pro — that is, entry-level configuration. (Note that Apple’s Certified Refurbished store has recently started selling the for about 15% off the list price.)— Amazon continues to offer $210 off the price of the
One more deal worth noting: B&H Photo is offering $300 off the 16-inch Pro model with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD.

Amazon is offering $150 off the 2019 MacBook Air. Note that this is the newest model with the Retina True Tone display that Apple released in July. All things being equal, you’re better off spending an additional $100 on the heavily discounted Pro model.
