MacBook deals have never been better. Currently, every Mac laptop is on sale. MacBook deals can be found at Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo this week. And we expect prices to remain low as retailers slash prices for the start of the new school semester.
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).

How to find the best MacBook deals
Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo offer the best MacBook deals and often price match each other. Here are the prices to look for when shopping for your MacBook:
13-inch MacBook Air M1: It's the oldest MacBook still available, but it's an amazing value. Powered by an M1 CPU, it offers just enough muscle for everyday work. It's sold for an all-time price low of $749 at Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo. Finding this price is somewhat easy and we recommend waiting for it if possible.
13-inch MacBook Air M2: The Editor's Choice MacBook Air M2 has hit an all-time price low of $899 a few times this past summer. Amazon is always sold out of this model, so we recommend checking Best Buy or B&H Photo for this price point, which appears to show up at least once a month. It's the best MacBook value hands down.
15-inch MacBook Air M2: The new 15-inch MacBook Air M2 has hit an all-time low of $1,099 a few times. It's still an expensive machine, but if you want that bigger screen — look for the $1,099 price at Amazon.
13-inch MacBook Pro M2: Deals on this machine are getting harder to find. Although it's hit an all-time low of $1,049, you can usually find it in stock for $1,199 at Best Buy or B&H.
14-inch MacBook Pro M2 Pro: On a few rare occasions, this machine has hit an all-time price low of $1,699, which is $300 off. If you find this price — act on it as it's not to often you'll see it.
16-inch MacBook Pro M2 Pro: The priciest MacBook in Apple's lineup has hit an all-time price low of $2,249 at Amazon. While it's rare to find this price, it's not completely uncommon, so if you can wait it out — we'd recommend waiting for a major retail holiday before buying this machine.
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. Also, check out our list of the best Mac VPN and how to check MacBook battery health.
