If you are looking to buy a new MacBook Pro you don’t have to pay full price. Our team of Apple experts search the web all year round for the top deals, offers and discounts for the MacBook Pro – seeking out the best money-off offers to save you time.
Apple has just announced new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. These new MacBook Pro went on sale on Tuesday, January 24, 2023 and we are already seeing discounts–Amazon in the U.S. and KRCS in the U.K. both have money off (more details below), but we don’t expect to see huge discounts on these models for a while.
In the meantime though, you may get a great deal on one of the older M1 Pro or M1 Mac MacBook Pro models that launched in 2021. For example, you can save you can save $500 on the original price of a 16-inch MacBook Pro at Amazon US and £352 on the original price of a 16-inch MacBook Pro at Amazon UK. Just note that Apple outside the U.S. Apple has upped prices for the new MacBook Pro range, which means that the prices of the older models will look even more attractive.
In this article we also run through some tips and explain Apple’s pricing structure, so that you can be sure you are getting the best discount available.
Here we are focused on the MacBook Pro, but there are some great deals for the MacBook Air too. The MacBook Air and the 13in MacBook Pro have a lot in common, so you might also be interested in reading our MacBook Air deals article as well. And make sure you check out our complete round-up of the best Apple deals we’ve seen.
Below you will find price comparison tables that show the best prices right now for each standard model of MacBook Pro. You will also find deals on MacBooks that Apple has now discontinued, as long as stockists still have them available.

Where to buy a MacBook Pro
There are limited stocks leading to some shipping delays, but you can find the MacBook Pro on sale at various locations. You could buy a MacBook Pro directly from Apple, or at stores and Apple Premium Resellers around the world – many of whom offer discounts on new and old Macs, so it’s worth shopping around. You can find out where the MacBook Pro is in stock or read our Where to buy a Mac article for more advice.
One benefit of buying from Apple is you could trade in your old Mac and get money off. We have an article explaining How to get money off with Apple’s trade-in program.
We recommend the following resellers in the US and UK:
Additionally, Apple has a number of Apple Premium Resellers in the U.K. who stock Macs and offer other services:
Best MacBook refurbished deals
While Apple rarely discounts new Macs, from time to time there are some excellent deals to be had in Apple’s Refurbished Store. The Macs in Apple’s refurbished store may be ex-display stock, or they may have been returned to Apple due to a fault, but they are fully reconditioned now and come with a full year’s warranty. Read about buying a refurbished Mac. It’s not only Apple that sells refurbished Macs, but Apple does offer some great incentives to buy from Apple’s Refurbished Store, so we do recommend taking a look there for great MacBook Pro deals.
We often see the cheaper M1 MacBook Pro on sale on the refurbished store, which means you could get the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro Apple M1 Chip with 8‑Core CPU and 8‑Core GPU with 256GB SSD for just £1,099/$1,099. A saving of £200/$200.
The Space Grey, 256GB, 8‑Core CPU and 8‑Core GPU model costs £1,099 (£200 off) from Apple’s refurbished store here (UK) and $200 off here (US).The Silver version of the 256GB model is also £200 off here (UK) and $200 off here (US).If you want to buy Space Grey 512GB version you can buy it from Apple’s refurbished store for £1,269 (£230 off) here (UK) and for $1,269 ($230 off) here (US).The Silver 512GB version is also £1,269 (£230 off) here (UK) and for $1,269 ($230 off) here (US).
Amazon also has a certified refurbished store for Apple products but we would advise against buying any products that are older than five years – most of the products we see on the Amazon refurbished store are unfortunately very old. Another place to look is BackMarket US and BackMarket UK, which sells refurbished Macs and other Apple products.
