MacBook deals have never been better. Early holiday deals are bringing a new wave of deals on practically every Mac laptop. In fact, the new M2 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are now $150 off at Best Buy (opens in new tab). The 14-inch MacBook Pro M1 Pro is also $400 off and at its lowest price ever. 

That said, if you spot a deal you like — our advice is to jump on it immediately because stock tends to run out fast. If you don't see the listed sale price, try checking different color models for hidden deals. (For more deals, make sure to follow our best Apple deals guide). Also, make sure to check out our guide on the best Apple coupons and best MacBooks for college students.

How to find the best MacBook deals

Amazon and Best Buy tend to offer the best MacBook deals. The MacBook Air M1 and the MacBook Pro M1 tend to see from $50 to $250 off discounts. 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. 

If you're looking for MacBook Pro deals — you'll want to look at Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo. The 14-inch MacBook Pro hit $1,749 ($250 off) in early February. The 16-inch model has also seen $250 off discounts at Amazon. These short-lived deals are the best prices we've seen for these MacBooks to date. 

It's also 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.
