A new MacBook Pro 14-inch 2021 and MacBook Pro 16-inch 2021 have joined Apple's current family of MacBooks. Priced at $1,999 and $2,499, respectively, the new laptops are now available for purchase. However, stock of Apple's new laptops is already selling out with estimated ship dates that bleed into early December.

Keep in mind that we predict Apple Black Friday deals could take from $100 to $250 off the cost of these laptops. In fact, one retailer is already taking $50 off both base models.
