MacBook deals are getting hotter by the day. If you're searching for a solid deal on Apple's premium laptop, we've found the perfect deal for you.

For a limited time, Amazon has the MacBook Pro M1 (256GB) on sale for $1,149.99. (It's on sale for $1,199 and an extra $49 is discounted during checkout). That saves you a total of $149, making it the biggest price drop we've seen. Amazon also has the 512GB model on sale for $1,349.99. That's $149 off and the lowest price for this configuration.

The new MacBook Pro with Apple's M1 chip delivers performance that runs circles around Windows laptops. Plus, you get a brighter display than the MacBook Air and beefier 8-core graphics. The 256GB config is now $149 off, which is one of the best MacBook Pro M1 deals we've seen.

The MacBook Pro is hands down one of the most powerful laptops from Apple. This sleek machine delivers great performance with its powerful Apple M1 chip, which sports 8-cores in a CPU/GPU combo. It also has a 13.3-inch Retina display, 8GB of RAM, 256GB (or 512GB) of SSD storage and an impressive battery life of up to 20 hours. 

This laptop also features a handy Touch Bar, allowing you to create your own personalized shortcuts to your favorite apps, emojis and preferred languages. 

In our MacBook Pro M1 review, we loved its bright and colorful display (500 nits of brightness), a surprisingly comfortable typing experience and the stunning graphics capabilities. And although the design might be a bit dated, overall, this laptop thrives thanks to its blazing performance.

See for yourself, the MacBook Pro M1 managed to score 5,945 on on the multi-core portion of the test using Geekbench 5.1 (which measures its overall performance). This number beats the 5,319 score from the Dell XPS 13 and the Asus ZenBook 13’s 5,084, with both of those machines featuring 11th gen Intel Core i7 CPUs. 

This model is available in two different colors: Silver and Space Gray.

All-in-all, the MacBook Pro M1 delivers everything you need to be productive: a long lasting battery life, power and great visuals. And now that it's $149 off, this laptop is that much more desirable.
