Even though the 2023 model is now available, there's no reason to skip the previous generation 14-inch MacBook Pro as it's still a powerful and capable laptop – and you can now get it for its lowest price ever.

Pop over to Amazon where you can find the MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021) for $1998.99 (was $2,499). This version of the top-rated creative workstation comes with the impressive M1 Pro chip, 16GB of RAM and a whopping 1TB SSD for fast boot times and speedy access to all your files. 

The equivalent 2023 model is at least $400 more expensive, so it's a generous saving for an equally impressive device that has previously been featured in our best laptop list and one of the best MacBook deals available right now.

Overview: 
The previous generation model of the MacBook Pro 14-inch has been discontinued since the start of the year so retailers are dramatically cutting the price to clear stock. Even though this laptop is older, it's still a fantastic creative workstation and excellent value for money with this $500 discount.

Key features: Apple M1 Pro chip, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, 16-core GPU, 14.2-inch (3024x1964) Liquid Retina XDR display, Mac OS

Launch date: October 2021

Price history: This version of the MacBook Pro has only been this low twice before: during last year's Black Friday and earlier this year in February. Availability will likely dwindle over the coming months as this model is no longer being manufactured so it's a good chance to pick one up while you can.

Reviews consensus: When this MacBook Pro 14-inch was originally launched in 2021, we said it was the best laptop you could buy today – especially for creative professionals. It offers incredible performance, a long-lasting battery, loads of ports and a stunning display, all in Apple's familiar slick design.
