Save almost $800 on a MacBook Pro with this incredible pre-Black Friday deal

Fancy upgrading your Apple laptop? There’s no need to wait for Black Friday to save a boatload of cash on a MacBook Pro. That’s because we’ve just spotted a superb deal on Amazon that’ll save you just shy of $800.

Apple has just released a brand-new 16-inch MacBook Pro, and although it looks like a very tasty device, it certainly doesn’t come cheap. Starting at $2,399 for the entry-level model, it’s hardly an impulse purchase.

If, however, you want a powerful MacBook Pro but are lamenting the price of the 16-inch model, fear not — you can get the 2018 MacBook Pro renewed for $1,617, saving you an incredible $782 off the retail price. Seeing as it’s only last year’s device, you still get excellent components but don’t have to pay the massive premium that comes with a 2019 MacBook Pro.

The device in question is the 15-inch version of the MacBook Pro. This is where Apple reserves its most powerful hardware, and this deal is no different. You get an eighth-generation six-core Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and a super-speedy 256GB SSD. That should have no problem ripping through all but the most demanding of tasks.

You also get an AMD Radeon Pro 555X graphics card included as well. That extra graphical power will be fantastic for video editing, rendering and playing games — something that lower-end MacBooks with integrated graphics often struggle with.

Elsewhere, you get the Touch Bar built in, which can be upgraded with some excellent apps that can really increase your productivity. This MacBook Pro also comes with Apple’s ever-excellent Force Touch trackpad that works with a whole host of gestures in MacOS Catalina.

Note that this deal only applies to the space grey version. The silver model is out of stock in this configuration, meaning you’ll have to pay for beefier components if you want that color.

Still, this isn’t a deal you should pass up lightly, particularly if you’re looking to upgrade your current MacBook but are put off by the high price of the 16-inch MacBook Pro. With this model only being a year old, you still get some powerful components that will do you proud.

Your next MacBook Air could be even faster than expected

Apple’s upcoming 15-inch MacBook Air could be launching sooner than expected, which is encouraging for anyone who has been waiting for this much-rumored device. But the good news doesn’t end there, as it could also get a sizeable chip upgrade that would leave rival devices in the dust.

For months, it had been suggested that Apple was working on a new 15-inch version of the MacBook Air that was going to be released at a spring event. However, now that Apple has announced it will host its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) -- but not a spring event -- it seems that the latter isn’t happening. That suggests the 15-inch MacBook Air will have to wait until WWDC before seeing the light of day.

If you’ve been waiting for Apple to launch an OLED MacBook Pro, there’s some bad news: it might not come out for another three years. That’s a serious wait considering many of Apple’s rivals have already brought out some of the best OLED laptops on the market.

The news comes from display industry tipster Ross Young, who is well-known for having a solid track record when it comes to Apple leaks. Young tweeted a link to a Reuters article outlining Samsung’s plans for an OLED fabrication plant, adding the comment: “This fab is for 14” and 16” OLED MacBook Pros from 2026.”

Apple could be planning a new MacBook Air equipped with an OLED display, according to Korean tech website TheElec. Interestingly, there are suggestions that the MacBook Air could get this high-end tech before Apple’s flagship MacBook Pro models.

Right now, none of Apple’s MacBook laptops come with OLED panels, and instead use Liquid Retina displays based on LCD technology. That could all change if TheElec’s claims are accurate, however.
