An absolute bargain ultrabook if you’re on a budget

Here we go folks, a Black Friday Apple deal that’s offering nearly unbeatable bang for the buck versus the competition – something you don’t see every day. We’ve always been a fan of the older MacBook Air M1 here at TechRadar and right now it’s at its lowest price at Amazon US. 

Apple MacBook Air (M1): was $999 now $799 at Amazon
The 2020 Apple MacBook Air with M1 chip is one of the best laptops ever made, so finding it on sale makes it even better. You can get 10% off the entry-level configuration with 8GB memory and 256GB of SSD storage with this Amazon deal.View Deal

Why do we recommend this older model? Well firstly, while it may not have the most modern design or chip inside, the Apple MacBook Air M1 still really holds up well for 2022 for the vast majority of users. It’s lightweight, decently powerful, has excellent battery life, and it’s much, much easier on the pocket than the M2 version. 

For context, the M2 version is currently sitting at $1,049 at Amazon US for Black Friday. That’s also a record-breaking deal but it’s a whopping $350 more than the above listing on the older model. Overall, we’d say the listing on the older model is the better Black Friday MacBook deal of the two for most users. In the UK? Here’s the cheapest listing we’ve found today.

MacBook Air (M1, 2020): was £999 now £879 at Amazon
Stock for the MacBook Air M1 is now more stable and we’re seeing some better discounts as we head toward Black Friday. This configuration offers 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD, which is a solid spec for all your computing needs. Today’s price is the best we’ve seen in months, so it’s a great time to buy.View Deal

On the surface, this Amazon UK doesn’t seem quite as good as the equivalent listing in the US but don’t be put off – it’s still the lowest price yet in this territory. If you’re interested in the Gold color, you’ll find that one for £819 today at Amazon, an even lower price versus the more popular Silver version.

Our high-end MacBook pick today

Looking to flash a bit of cash to get something truly special this Black Friday? Our pick for professionals or those in need of some power is this deal from Best Buy on the MacBook Pro 14:

Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch (M1 Pro): was $1,999 now $1,599 at Best Buy
This huge early Black Friday deal at Best Buy brings the stunning MacBook Pro 14 down to its lowest-ever price. While still a little on the pricey side, this machine is a fantastic option for creative and productivity applications thanks to its combination of a powerful M1 Pro processor, gorgeous display, and fantastic premium design.View Deal

As stated, this $400 price cut at the retailer is the lowest ever price on this relatively in-demand product. While we wouldn’t recommend it for everyone due to its price, those who can get the most out of its powerful M1 Pro chip will find a lot to like with this model. 

Everything is top-shelf – from the design to the components – and its access to the usual MacOS suite makes it a perfect pick for creative professionals in particular. It’s so good, in fact, that we picked it as our laptop of the year for 2022

In the UK? Here’s the cheapest price we’ve found in your region – just know that it’s note quite as good of a deal as the above Best Buy listing in the US (it’s still the cheapest listing ever, though).

Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch (M1 Pro): was £1,899 now £1,725 at Amazon
If you prefer the comfortable middle ground between big-screen and compact, the 14-inch MacBook Pro is the way to go. This model is very middle-of-the-road in terms of hardware specs too, with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD supporting the M1 Pro chip at its core.View Deal
