MacBook Black Friday deals: Early MacBook Pro and Air Cyber Monday deals
Woah! We’ve just come across one of the best MacBook Black Friday deals of the weekend – a whopping $300 off a 13-inch MacBook Pro, now just $999! It wouldn’t be hard to imagine getting a MacBook Pro for less than a grand if it was on a model from a few years back, but this is a mid-2020, 13-inch MacBook Pro with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. This is an amazing deal, which we’re sure won’t last long.
If you’ve been thinking about investing in a new MacBook Pro, but don’t need the almighty power that comes with the new 2021 M1 model, you’re in luck. The arrival of Apple’s new laptop this year has meant its older, but also super-powerful, siblings have been significantly reduced in price.
The 2020 M1 MacBook Pro is a beast of a machine, and right now you can get the 13-inch model for just £1,159 at Amazon – that’s a very decent £140 saving on the regular retail price.
Evening all (to those of you in the UK, that is). The last 24 hours have seen a number of great MacBook Black Friday deals, but the best offer in the UK is still this £110 discount on a 2020 MacBook Air over on Amazon. In fact, it’s a whole four pounds cheaper than it was yesterday (don’t go spending it all at once).
And it’s the same in the US, with B&H Photo offering a huge $170 off the exact same model, taking it down to $829. This is the deal that followed a flash sale, which took the device down to $727 for 24 hours that has now ended. The B&H Photo says the current deal is due to end on 30 Nov, so we don’t expect to see the price drop again this Black Friday weekend.
As Black Friday 2021 draws to a close, it’s safe to say we’ve got a very good idea of what a good MacBook Black Friday deal looks like. And so far, nothing has beaten this MacBook Air offer from B&H Photo, which drops the price of Apple’s super-thin, all-powerful 13-inch laptop to just $829. That’s a huge $170 off the normal price!
B&H Photo has had this item reduced for roughly 36 hours now, so our guess is it won’t be long before this returns to its regular retail price. So if you want one, don’t delay!
Apple is pretty rubbish at offering any kind of deal, like, ever. But it seems even Black Friday is an event the hardware giant can’t ignore, today offering a number of Apple gift cards when you purchase selected Apple products. You can get a $200 Apple gift card when you buy a MacBook Pro right now.
Ok, time for some accessory chat now. This ASUS Pro Art monitor holds a firm spot in our pick of the best monitors for MacBook Pro. So if you’re looking to get a new monitor alongside a new MacBook, this is definitely worth considering. Especially at this price. NewEgg is currently selling the screen for $319.99, which is the lowest price it has been in the last month.
If you want a monitor for your MacBook Pro that is affordable but delivers strong image quality, pick this.

If you’re in the US, you’re in luck. Right now, Amazon has an impressive $200 off this 2020 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro, now just $1,299. Considering this model was released just last year, this is an unbelievable price on a Pro, especially one with a larger amount of storage.
Don’t need so much space? The 128GB version also has a very decent $100 discount, taking the price down to $1,199. Bargain.
John Lewis is on fire with the MacBook Black Friday deals in the UK right now. This 13-inch 2020 Apple MacBook Pro is currently down to £1,459. Reduced to clear, that’s a £340 saving on this older but still extremely powerful machine.
The model boasts Apple’s Magic Keyboard, a super-speedy 10th gen, Intel Core i5 processor, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Touch Bar, Retina display with True Tone technology, and dedicated Touch ID button.
Very much to our surprise, last week we saw the all-new 2021, 14-inch M1 MacBook Pro discounted in both the US and the UK. The deal offered $100 / £100 off the new model, which we realise is not much on a product that costs almost two grand. But being that the device was only released last month, we didn’t expect to see any savings whatsoever.
If you’re wanting to invest in this beast of a machine, the good news is the deal is back in the UK. But for how long, we don’t know. John Lewis currently has the 14-inch MacBook Pro with 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD for £1,799, which would set you back £100 more if bought directly from Apple.
Over in the US, the 2021 MacBook Pro deals aren’t quite as good. The best we can find is this $50 saving off the 14-inch M1 Pro, 10-Core with 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD at B&H Photo – taking the price down to $2,449.
Ok, let’s go into a bit more detail on the best MacBook Air Black Friday deal right now, which, sadly, is not as good as it was yesterday in the US.
B&H Photo launched a flash sale on this 13-inch, early 2020 MacBook Air with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD, which saw the price plummet to just $727. The one-day only offer ended at midnight (ET) last night, but B&H Photo haven’t cleared the discount completely. Instead the company is now offering a more modest, but still excellent $170 off. That means you can get a brand new 2020 MacBook Air right now for just $829.
Over in the UK, the same model is also on sale at Amazon, although the saving is not quite as good as across the pond. A saving of £106 takes it down to £893, which is the cheapest you’ll find this model in the UK right now.
The 2020 MacBook Air is only a year old, and it’s an absolute powerhouse of a machine, so to see it reduced so significantly this Black Friday is a really pleasant surprise.
