This is one of the best Apple Black Friday deals of the year, even though it's not the biggest discount, because it's on the amazing new MacBook Pro with M1 processor.
Apple MacBook Pro (2020) 8GB RAM/256GB SSD Was £1,299 | Now £1,250 | Save £49 at Amazon
[There was also this deal on the MacBook Air… But you missed it.

Oh well, it might come back.
In the meantime, the new MacBook Pro differs from the old model in a fundamental way: Instead of relying on Intel for its processor, Apple has developed its own, called the M1, which is far more similar to the chips found in iPhone and iPad than Windows laptops and other Macs.
It's one of the best Black Friday deals we've seen so far not because it's a huge discount, but because it's on an extremely hot product we didn't expect to see any kind of discount on at all.
Apple MacBook Pro (2020) | 13-inch / 8GB / 256GB
Was £1,299 | Now £1,249.97 | Save £49 (4%) at Amazon
The M1-powered MacBook Pro has it all: blazing speed, loads of storage, a foot in the future in terms of its chipset, and a £50 discount despite only having been released in the past few weeks. It's the ultimate Black Friday deal from Amazon.
If you're in the market for upgrade your MacBook and don't mind living on the (cutting) edge, then the M1 MacBook Pro is a no brainer. It's fast, light, has really long-lasting battery life, and can run iOS apps.

Also look out for this Air deal…
Apple MacBook Air M1, 256GB | Was £999 | Now £949 | Save £50 at Amazon UK Sold out already!
It's only been out a week, but you could, for a day this week, have saved £50 on the brand-new MacBook Air! This machine is incredible, offering similar performance to high-end pro machines, but in a silent, fanless design. It has 8GB of RAM, powerful 7-core Apple graphics, and a sharp 2560x1600 screen with a wide P3 colour gamut. Will it return? We shall see…View Deal
Like the Pro, the MacBook Air M1 also uses Apple's new processor, which is incredibly powerful – as powerful as the high-end chip used in the 16-inch MacBook Pro, in fact. Yet the MacBook Air is totally silent and remains cool despite being fan-less… and it's a fraction of the price of that machine.
Compared to previous MacBook Airs, it's between two and three times as fast, depending on what you're doing – either way, it's a massive leap forward. It comes on as quickly as an iPhone, and also offers a whopping 18 hours of battery life in real-world use, so you'll barely have to plug it in.
There are also discounts on the Intel-powered MacBook Air from earlier this year, but they're not very big, and given the huge jump in power and battery life on the new machine, we'd recommend buying this one unless you simply have to spend the minimum amount possible.
