If you’re looking for a new laptop, the Black Friday deals are the ideal place to look. Laptops are one of the most discounted products during this time of year, especially Apple devices like the MacBook.
Apple makes some of the best laptops, desktops and phones on the market today, so if you’re in need of an upgrade on any of these, take a look at Apple. In particular, Apple MacBooks are fast, reliable and easy to use. Whether you need it for work, home or studying, the MacBook has all your needs covered.
If you’re unsure what MacBook to pick (the different sizes and Pro and Air names can be a bit confusing), we’ve run through the four types of Apple MacBook you can buy. We predict they’ll be high in demand and quick to go this Black Friday, so we’ve highlighted the best deals and the best US and UK retailers to shop for them.
The MacBook Air is the thinnest, lightest notebook that runs on and is supercharged on the Apple M1 chip. It has an incredible amount of power, speed and battery life. The Air comes with 8GB of RAM which offers a lot of storage space. If your workload is quite heavy, the Air has a silent fanless design that runs quietly and keeps the laptop cool.
MacBook Pro 13”
The MacBook Pro 13” runs on an M1 chip, like the Air, and the 13-inch screen is bright, wide and is great for photos and videos. It also comes with a touch bar second screen which has extra shortcuts and tools for easier editing and control. It’s a handy laptop that looks good and is easy to take with you anywhere.
MacBook Pro 14”
The next size up on the MacBook Pro is the 14-inch. The 14” screen has a liquid retina XDR display and runs on the M1 Pro chip or the M1 Max chip. The Pro 14” has a great amount of storage and battery life (better than the 13”). The wide colour screen has a great FaceTime HD camera and the keyboard is backlit and has touch ID.
MacBook Pro 16”
The biggest MacBook Pro size is 16-inches and unsurprisingly, is one of the best MacBook models. Larger than the MacBook Air, the Pro 16” has a high resolution and 25% more brightness. With lots of power available, the Pro 16” has plenty of USB ports, a high-fidelity six-speaker sound system and wide stereo sound.
