Great MacBook deals are dropping this weekend in both the US and UK - an opportune moment for those looking to gear up with the latest back to school sales.

In the US, B&H Photo in particular is offering some neat savings on a few great MacBook deals - on both brand new as well as slightly older models. The 2020 MacBook Air for $949 (was $999) is especially a decent buy for those looking for a versatile college laptop. Inside you're getting a 10th Gen Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD - great all-around specs for most users, and the stunning 13-inch Retina display is also perfect for streaming all your favorite shows and movies. 

If you need something with a little more power, then there are plenty of options as well. Take this 2019 MacBook Pro at B&H for $1,199 (was $1,499), or this stunning 2020 MacBook Pro at Amazon for $1,599.99 (was $1,799) for example. Both these fine machines are going for their lowest prices ever right now and are great buys for enthusiasts, professionals, and power users.

For those in the UK, we've also got a great line-up of MacBook deals including the cheapest ever price on a MacBook Air 2020, which is at Amazon for just £948.99 (was £999). You can read more about this offer, as well as some great MacBook Pro alternatives in more detail just down below.

Apple MacBook Air 2020: $999 $949 at B&H Photo
Save $50
on a brand new MacBook Air this weekend at B&H Photo. This might be the baseline model, but it's actually got some really decent specs inside - a 10th Gen Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, which is a marked improvement over last year. This deal is also available over at Amazon for the same price, but they won't be shipping until later this month.

Apple MacBook Air 2019:  $1,199 $999 at B&H Photo
Don't let that slightly higher price fool you - this 2019 MacBook Air is a worthy alternative to the newer model above, mainly because it's packing in a powerful 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5 processor. With 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, some might prefer to opt for this slightly older, but more powerful, 2019 model over the newer one. Note, however, these don't come with the new 'Magic Keyboard' though.

But, if you did want to shell out then you can still save yourself a hefty $200 on this blazingly fast 2020 MacBook Pro 13 at Amazon. This one's got a 2.0 GHz 10th Gen Intel Core i5, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD, making it the most powerful machine on our list by far.
