Prime Day: MacBook Pro With M1 Chip Gets Steepest Discount Yet

Save a couple hundred bucks on a new MacBook Pro with this Prime Day deal.


The time is now. Amazon Prime Day is upon us. In addition to bringing some of the best Prime Day gaming deals and the best Prime Day TV deals--and of course, massive markdowns on computers. If you're in the market for a new laptop, you're in luck. This year, Prime Day is showing us the biggest discount on 2020 MacBook Pro computers with M1 chips, knocking the prices down by a couple hundred dollars.

You've got two different options to choose from in this particular sale. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage has been marked down from $1299 to $1099. Alternatively, the 512GB SSD version has been marked down from $1499 to $1299.

Introduced in 2020, the M1 chip boasts Apple's most impressive speed and power boosts with up to 5x the graphics performance and 2.8x the CPU performance of past models. In addition to the impressive processing specs, this generation of MacBook has up to 20-hours of battery life per charge, the longest of any MacBook Pro to date.

The M1 chip also improves the performance of the camera, making sure your Zoom meetings and facetime calls will be coming in with crystal clarity.

Other MacBook Pro versions, including the 13-inch, 516GB SSD incarnation that uses an Intel Core i7 processor rather than an M1 chip, are also on sale for similar markdowns, having been discounted from $1799 to $1649.

Also, Best Buy The Bigger Deal sale has plenty of MacBooks and Mac accessories to take a look at too, once you've completed your Prime Day order.
