Apple’s MacBook Pro M1 is one of the best laptops money can buy. If you’re on the fence about buying a MacBook because of price, this deal is for you.
Right now, you can get the MacBook Pro M1 512GB model for $1,299 on Amazon. Normally, this laptop fetches $1,499, which is a savings of $200. This is the lowest price we’ve seen for this configuration outside of the holidays.
It’s one of the best Apple deals we’ve spotted this week.
The Apple MacBook Pro M1 laptop is one of the best laptops for photo and video editing. The laptop in this deal packs a 13.3-inch Retina display (2560 x 1600), 8-core Apple M1 processor, 8GB of RAM, 8-core GPU, and 512GB SSD.
In our 2020 MacBook Pro M1 review, we were impressed with its super-fast SSD, comfortable Magic Keyboard, and outstanding overall and gaming performance. Its battery lasted 16 hours and 32 minutes on our Laptop Mag battery test, which is quite impressive. We gave the MacBook Pro M1 a rare 5 out of 5 star rating and our coveted Editor’s Choice award.
In real-world testing, the MacBook Pro M1 had more than enough muscle to handle the heavy workloads we threw at it. Even with 50 tabs open in Google Chrome – running Tweetdeck, Slack, YouTube, Tidal, Gmail, Google Sheets and Twitch, the MacBook Pro M1 didn’t slow down.
Design-wise, the MacBook Pro M1’s design engineers gave it the same iconic aluminum chassis and shiny Apple logo line. With a weight of 3 pounds and measuring 12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches, the MacBook Pro M1 is heavier than its competitors. It weighs a little more than the Dell XPS 13 (2.8 pounds, 11.6 x 7.8 x 0.6 inches) and the 13-inch HP Specter x360 (2.7 pounds, 12.1 x 7.7 x 0.7 inches).
MacBook Pro deals are as good as inventory will allow, so we recommend grabbing one while you still can.
