Apple MacBook M1 deals are incredibly popular right now - such is the power of these great new premium ultrabooks - but, almost astonishingly we've seen a return to the lowest prices yet on both the new MacBook Pro and Air in the first big discounts of 2021.

In the US, Amazon is currently offering up the 256GB variants of the Apple MacBook Pro 13 and Apple MacBook Air for $1,199 (was $1,299) and $949.99 (was $999) respectively. Both these discounts are relatively fresh, being posted last week, and see a return to the lowest prices we've seen yet on these stunning new models. 

As you'd expect, you'll probably have to jump on these deals quickly if you're looking to secure these prices at Amazon. We've already seen immediate stock on the Pro 13 model vanish rapidly and that delivery date just keeps being stretched back further (although you can still order, or pick it up at B&H Photo for the same price if you'd prefer immediate delivery).

If you're shopping for MacBook deals in the UK, then you'll be well served by Amazon's latest price on the M1 Apple MacBook Pro 13 for £1,189 (was £1,299). Although this one's only £10 off the usual price we see these go for, it is in fact the lowest price yet in the UK on this new ultrabook. Unlike in the US as well, there's plenty of stock to go around right now on both colours too. 

Regardless of whether you opt to go for that plush new MacBook Pro 13 or (relatively) inexpensive MacBook Air, both models come with that new M1 chip - a processor capable of excellent performance. With a stunning all-aluminum body and excellent displays too, they're also easily some of the best looking ultrabooks on the market right now.
