Powerful new M1 MacBook Pro gets a surprise Black Friday price cut! – Creative Bloq


If there’s one deal we didn’t expect to see this Black Friday, it was money off Apple’s newly released MacBook Pro. But then again, we’ve learned that it’s pretty tricky to predict what’s going to happen in 2020. And in this instance, we’re certainly not complaining. 

Amazon has cut the price of the brand new MacBook Pro with M1 chip from £1,299 to £1,249. With £49 off, it’s not the biggest discount we’ll see on a MacBook this Black Friday, but it’s also not one to turn your nose up at. 

Across the pond, B&H Photo has matched this deal by also offering $50 off Apple’s brand new machine (see below). We doubt we’ll see much bigger savings than this on Apple’s brand new machine, though perhaps even more retailers might follow suit and match the saving soon.

The early reviews on this M1 MacBook Pro are very, very good indeed. The bespoke new M1 chip means that this already capable machine has taken a leap forward in terms of performance. Plus, those gorgeous graphics are now five times faster – ideal for working with graphics-heavy creative apps.

There are also some fantastic Black Friday MacBook Air deals right now. Here are a couple of the very best deals that we’ve seen so far…

Save $350: This MacBook Air was released last year, and the model comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD storage, with a gold finish. There’s also a huge $350 off! We can’t imagine this MacBook price will drop much lower, so it’s a great deal to make the most of right now.

MacBook Air (2020): $1,299 $1,099 at B&H Photo
Save $200: This MacBook Air came out earlier this year, and so is a cracking deal. $200 is an impressive saving on such a cutting-edge machine, and it comes with 512GB SSD and 8GB RAM and an i5 processor that makes it super-speedy.
