The MacBook Pro is hands down one of the most powerful laptops around. Whether you opt for the 13-inch, 14.2-inch, or 16-inch model, you're getting one of the best laptops on the market.

In our MacBook Pro M1 (2020) review, we said the M1 chip delivered seriously impressive speeds that most Windows laptops still struggle to beat. For example, it took the MacBook Pro just 7 minutes and 46 seconds to transcode a 4K video, compared to more than 18 minutes for the Dell XPS 13. That level of processing performance is still highly impressive even two years later. This MacBook Pro is also capable of delivering seriously outstanding battery life. In our testing it stayed powered on for an epic 16 hours and 25 minutes.

In our Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch review, we were impressed with its blazing performance, gorgeous mini-LED display and the upgraded 1080p webcam. We were also fond of the fact that some of the best MacBook Pro features made a long-awaited comeback, some of which include the HDMI port, SD card slot and MagSafe.

We praised the refreshed Magic Keyboard, which not only makes typing more comfortable than ever, but also included function keys instead of the Touch Bar.

In our tests, the 14-inch MacBook Pro's battery life lasted just over 14 hours when used for general web surfing over Wi-Fi, which means it could easily get you through a whole day or a long flight.

If you want a bigger screen and more battery life, you'll want to opt for the 16-inch model. In our Macbook Pro 16-inch review, we squeezed over 15 hours on our test. Otherwise, both machines are nearly identical. 

This isn't the first time we see these MacBooks on sale at this price. However, last time they hit this price point they sold out fast. So don't sleep on this deal. Also, make sure to check out our coverage of the best Apple deals for more sales on Apple kit.
