Thanks to Apple's "Scary Fast" event, which took place last night, there's an all-new MacBook Pro available for pre-order, and even better - there are some really good deals on older model MacBooks at Amazon. The retailer is offering record-low prices on Apple's best-selling MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops, which are usually reserved for holiday sales like the upcoming Black Friday deals event.

The cheapest deal is on the 13-inch MacBook Air M1 that's on sale for just $749.99 (was $999). While an older device, the 2020 MacBook Air is still one of the best laptops you can buy, thanks to its top-end performance and affordable price. You're getting Apple's M1 chip with an 8-core CPU and 8-core GPU, Touch ID, and 18 hours of battery life.

If you're looking for more power at a slightly higher price, Amazon also has the 2022 MacBook Pro M2 marked down to $1,049 (was $1,299). The 13-inch MacBook Pro packs Apple's M2 chip, a 720p FaceTime HD camera, and two Thunderbolt ports for fast connections and 20 hours of battery life.

And last but not least, you can get the latest 15-inch MacBook Air M2 on sale for $1,049.99 (was $1,299.99). The 2023 MacBook Air is claimed to be the world's thinnest 15-inch laptop while still delivering exceptional power thanks to the M2 chip with an 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU. The laptop also features a six-speaker sound system, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, and a fanless design that runs completely silent.

All of today's MacBook deals include record-low prices, which means the laptops have never been cheaper. The all-new MacBook Pro has a starting price of $1,599, which makes today's offers extremely attractive.
