Black Friday deals have started a little early for anyone looking for a new MacBook. That’s hardly surprising given Apple’s next Mac event is imminent so we’re already seeing price drops as there are rumors of the M3 chip coming soon. Even if it does, the M2 will still be more than capable for a long time to come. If you’ve been waiting for your chance to snap up great Black Friday MacBook deals, this is a good opportunity with some great prices around. Here’s a quick look at the highlights that are out there today.
The standard Apple MacBook Air 13.6-inch M2 is one of the best MacBooks for anyone on a budget. Its M2 chip is powerful for mostly all tasks you can think of, while there’s 8GB of memory and 256GB of SSD storage. One significant highlight is its 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display with over 500 nits of brightness, P3 wide color, and support for one billion colors. Useful extras like touch ID support and a Magic Keyboard all add to the classiness of the device. It also sports up to 18 hours of battery life while it looks super sleek weighing just 2.7 pounds. A fanless design means it’s ideal for taking to class with you, using in a coffee shop, or simply enjoying a silent experience wherever you are. It’s a truly versatile machine at a great price.
If you want a little more screen space, consider the Apple MacBook Air 15.3-inch M2. It has the same M2 chip you see on the standard MacBook Air, along with 256GB of SSD storage and 8GB of memory. However, its Liquid Retina screen is larger at 15.3-inch so it’s ideal if you want more room to juggle windows. There’s still the up to 18 hours of battery life as before plus it’s still silent and fanless. Thin and lightweight, there are other useful features like a 1080p FaceTime HD camera and three-mic array too. It’s one of the best laptops around, remaining portable yet offering great hardware.
If you’ve checked out the differences between the MacBook Air M2 and MacBook Pro M2 and decided to go Pro, this is a great deal. The MacBook Pro M2 has an M2 chip with 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU along with 8GB of memory and 256GB of SSD storage. Up to 20 hours of battery life is possible here with an active cooling system ensuring pro levels of performance at all times. Its 13.3-inch Retina display has 500 nits of brightness and P3 wide color support, while there’s a HD camera and studio-quality mics via the three-mic array. Two Thunderbolt ports make it easy to hook up to other devices too.
