Apple’s all-new MacBook Pros have been available for less than a week, so you may be surprised to hear that these impressive machines are already 10% off at certain retailers – an excellent deal ahead of Black Friday.
This 10% saving can be found from either Amazon Australia or The Good Guys, and it includes the Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021) and the Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021), both of which come equipped with Apple’s latest M1 Pro or M1 Max chips.
We’ve spent some time with the new 14-inch MacBook Pro, and we’re confident it's the best laptop for creative professionals you can buy right now. The new silicon ensures you’ll get incredible performance, and thankfully it doesn’t come at the expense of battery life.
If you want to snag one of these powerhouse laptops at 10% off, keep in mind that they’ll only be available at this price until this Wednesday, November 3. If you’re not sure which laptop is right for you, we’ve laid out the options below.
If Apple’s 13-inch MacBooks are too small for you, and the 16-inch options are too big, then this 14-inch laptop should be just right. It’s also the best screen we’ve seen on a laptop, with a Liquid Retina XDR display using mini-LED tech. We’re also happy to report it has a great selection of ports, so it’s functional as well as being beautiful to look at. The grey and silver versions are AU$300 off at The Good Guys.
This MacBook Pro is much the same as the 14-inch option above, except here you’re getting a 16-inch display (which is also backlit by mini-LEDs). Another difference is that this 16-inch version uses a 10-core M1 Pro CPU, while the smaller MacBook has an 8-core CPU. Overall, you can expect an extra kick in performance. Amazon has this laptop available in grey and silver, or you can buy from The Good Guys at the same price.
If you want an elite laptop for photo, video or sound editing (and have the cash to spare) this version of the 16-inch MacBook Pro has beefy specs to fit your needs. This Apple M1 Max CPU has 10 cores, and is working alongside 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD, so you can expect super-speedy performance. This AU$525 discount is currently available from The Good Guys in either grey or silver, while Amazon is temporarily out of stock.
