Best Buy is kicking off Black Friday early this year, and its catalog includes a few very popular products that rarely see price cuts–the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. Over a dozen different models are currently on sale, including a $200 discount on the MacBook Pro equipped with the new M2 chip. You’ll want to peruse the full catalog to see which MacBook is best for your needs, but here’s a closer look at the two most affordable models.
The most budget-friendly MacBook Air right now comes with 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, and the powerful M2 8-core chip. You’ll also be treated to a remarkably thin design that clocks in at less than three pounds and can run for 18 hours before needing a recharge. Toss in a Liquid Retina display along with a 1080p FaceTime camera, and it’s easy to see why this model is so popular (and relatively expensive). Although it’s still over $1000, this is one of the best prices we’ve seen all year for the MacBook Air–so check it out while you can.
If you need something with a bit more juice, consider stepping up to the MacBook Pro. This model offers a slightly smaller 13.3-inch screen, but comes equipped with the M2 10-core chip–which makes it a bit more powerful than the Air. Rounding out the package, you’ll find 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, a battery that lasts up to 20 hours, and a Liquid Retina display. Just like the MacBook Air, this is one of the better prices we’ve seen in 2022.
