More Prime Day Apple deals

Amazon's Big Deal Days event, also known as October Prime Day, has arrived and MacBook deals are here. So now is very much the time to get yourself one of the best laptops on the market. Apple's laptops may be considered pricey the rest of the year, but Prime Day has brought several of them down to all-time low prices.

The cheapest of the bunch is the MacBook Air M1 for $749 at Amazon. This model is a couple of years old now, but it's still an awesome deal for a laptop with speedy performance and long battery life. Another deal that I recommend shopping early is the 13-inch MacBook Pro M2 for $1,049 at Amazon. This MacBook is at its lowest price ever. It runs super fast thanks to its M2 chip and also has incredible 18-hour battery life. Keep scrolling for the best Prime Day deals on MacBooks this year.

How to find the best Prime Day MacBook deals

Amazon and Best Buy tend to offer the best Prime Day MacBook deals. However, we've noticed that Amazon offers slightly better MacBook sales that its competitors. For instance, the M1 MacBook Air has dropped to $799 a few times at Amazon. (It's hit an all-time low of $749 via Best Buy, but that was a student discount only). Likewise, Amazon has been the only retailer to take $100 off the new 15-inch MacBook Air.

If you're looking for MacBook Pro deals — you'll again want to look at Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo. These retailers have taken from $100 to $400 off Apple's Pro models. It's worth noting that sometimes pricing varies based on what color MacBook you choose. So when shopping, we recommend clicking on different colors to see if there are hidden discounts.
