Apple’s new computers, based on the company’s own custom M1 chip, have been getting sterling reviews due to their great performance and better life. (Well, almost sterling reviews; The Verge’s Nilay Patel is not a fan of the Touch Bar that still adorns the MacBook Pro. But aside from that...)
Normally, brand-new Apple computers would not be on sale, even during Cyber Monday. But the M1-powered MacBook Pro 13 has already had a $50-off sale at Amazon, and now B&H is discounting the MacBook Pro with M1 chips.
B&H is taking $100 off the M1-equipped MacBook Air with the base configuration, which includes 256GB of SSD storage. It’s the lowest price we’ve seen the new M1-powered Air sell for yet.
If you prefer the MacBook Pro model and you’re looking for the configuration that include 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, this model is available for $1,199 in either gray or silver. If you upgrade it to 512GB of storage, then the usual price of $1,499 drops to $1,399, again in either gray or silver.
Not a bad deal, especially if you’re a Mac fan looking to upgrade. Note that all of these sales are considered “preorders”, as both stores are expecting to get stock of the M1 computers in soon, but haven’t yet.
