Forget Black Friday, that was so last week. Cyber Monday deals are currently storming onto the scene as retailers discount what matters most: gadgets and technology. A good example of this: Best Buy has currently got some very tasty discounts on Apple's MacBook Air and Pro.
While Apple has recently introduced two new types of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, powered by its M1 processor, the Intel-based models are still well worth buying, especially with these discounts. Pretty much all major software is made for Intel CPUs and will be for some time.
The MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are, unsurprisingly, easy to distinguish by their names. The Air, a staple among students, is less powerful but also lighter and easier to transport, and still comes with some powerful CPU options available. On the other hand, the Pro is for heftier workloads, like coding and video editing.
Let's jump into the best MacBook Cyber Monday deals at Best Buy...
MacBook Air | 13.3-inch | Gold, Silver, Grey | i5 / 8GB / 256GB
Was $949 | Now $849 | Save $100 at Best Buy
The low-end MacBook Air is anything but: Intel's i5 is powerful and 256GB SSD should be more than enough for most people. If you are planning on doing more intensive work, it might be worth looking for a Pro, but for everyone else, it's a fantastic deal.View Deal

The Air option we'd go for is this one: Intel's 10th-generation chips paired with 512GB SSD and the same 8GB RAM, with three attractive colors available. It's a work horse laptop in a lightweight notebook-esque body and we're absolutely here for it. View Deal
