Best Black Friday Apple MacBook Air deals

(opens in new tab)

Apple MacBook Air M1
The Macbook Air is all about portability, weighing in at just 2.8 pounds and 0.6 inches thick. As our review (opens in new tab) noted, It was the first of Apples laptop lineup to get the M1 processor that Apple designed themselves. While the M1 processor has been supplanted by the Pro and Max models on the MacBook Pro lineup, it is still a very capable processor that can pretty much any everyday task you could throw at it. Combine this with a beautiful 13-inch screen, and you've got a package that has portability and performance, all in one. 

Best Black Friday Apple MacBook Pro (2021) deals

Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch
The big daddy of the 2021 MacBook Pro lineup, the 16-inch MacBook Pro has it all: a massive 16-inch Liquid Retina XDR display, up to 32GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage, all powered by either the M1 Pro or the M1 Max processor. Both processors offer 10-core performance, but the Max version doubles the number of GPU cores to 32 for top-tier graphics performance.

Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch
Shaving a couple of inches off the display makes the 14-inch version of the 2021 MacBook Pro a much more portable device, as the weight drops to 3.5 pounds. The performance is a little lighter as well, though, with options for an 8- or 10-core M1 Pro processor and a slightly lower resolution Liquid Retina display than the 16-incher. It still kicks some performance ass, though.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch
This MacBook Pro was launched in 2020, but it is still available and is a great deal if value is more important to you than raw processing power. It is built around by the same M1 processor that the MacBook Airs below are based on, with 8 CPU and GPU cores, but in a larger package that provides more rom for a bigger keyboard and touchpad. You don't get the improved keyboard and screen of the 2021 Pro models, though.
