16-inch MacBook Pro gets a $250 price cut at Amazon for Black Friday

16 inch MacBook Pro deal from Amazon for Black Friday 2020
Amazon/Apple Inc.

We’re less than a day away now from Black Friday, but online retailers like Amazon have already hit the ground running with their Black Friday deals. The Amazon Black Friday deals in particular have been especially good so far, and that includes their current Black Friday laptop deals and their Black Friday MacBook deals. And a fantastic example of the latter, is one of the retailer’s best discounts on MacBook: a 16-inch MacBook Pro with a $250 price cut.

A $250 discount on a new 16-inch MacBook Pro is nothing to sneeze at. Especially when you consider that the discount knocks a hefty price tag of $2,399 down to something a bit more manageable at $2,149. And all for a high-end MacBook Pro.

And this specific MacBook Pro is definitely worth considering as it features a 16-inch Retina display with 500 nits of brightness, a powerful six-core ninth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, a roomy 512GB SSD, and 16GB of RAM. Not to mention it also boasts Apple’s Touch ID and Touch Bar, a six-speaker sound system, and the Magic Keyboard. And with up to 11 hours of battery life, this really is a laptop that can do it all, allowing you to work and play hard. Digital Trends reviewed the MacBook Pro 16-inch in January 2020, and we called it “the best Mac in years.” Why? Well, we especially loved the introduction of the Magic Keyboard which we considered a vast improvement over the 2015 model since it now has “larger keycaps and a snappier mechanism.” We also felt that the overall performance was “excellent” for content creation and that the 16-inch display was “gorgeous” and liked its thinner bezel. There were only two drawbacks. We still felt that the Touch Bar seemed pretty useless and that the size can be a problem for those who require portability from their laptops as the 16-inch size won’t provide that.

But if the 16-inch MacBook Pro isn’t quite your style, it’s important to remember that you still have other, great and comparable options this Black Friday. Take for instance, this other deal from Amazon, a 13-inch MacBook Pro with a $230 price cut. This is a great option for those who still want a MacBook Pro, but also want portability and a price that’s easier on their wallet. For $1,769, you’ll get a 13-inch MacBook Pro that comes with 1TB of SSD storage, 16GB of RAM, a quad-core tenth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, the Magic Keyboard, a Retina display, Touch Bar and Touch ID, and up to 10 hours of battery life.

It's just been a month since the 2022 release of Apple's 12.9-inch iPad Pro, so we weren't expecting it to appear in this year's Black Friday tablet deals. To our surprise, the tablet's Wi-Fi, 128GB version is in the Amazon Black Friday deals with a $100 discount, which brings the device's price down to $999 from its original price of $1,099. Here's another surprise -- Black Friday is over, but the offer is still online. We're not sure how much time remains for you to take advantage of it, let alone if it will appear in the upcoming Cyber Monday deals, so don't waste this opportunity.

Why you should buy the Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2022)
The latest Apple iPad Pro, the sixth iteration of the tablet that was just released in October, made a huge splash on its arrival. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro already claimed the title as the best big-screen tablet in Digital Trends' list of the best tablets, partly because the edge-to-edge display with 2732 x 2048 resolution works great for multimedia, gaming, drawing, and watching streaming content, among many other purposes. The iPad Pro also offers unparalleled performance with Apple's M2 chip, which can also be found in this year's versions of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
