Are any Prime Day MacBook deals too good to be true?

Before you make any big tech purchases, it’s essential to do your research to avoid any pitfalls along the way. There are a lot of MacBook models out there and you want to make sure you’re getting the best possible product even if it’s heavily discounted. If there is a certain MacBook seeing a really big discount on Amazon during Prime Day, the deal may be too good to be true. Make sure to check the model and offerings of the device before you blindly purchase it. Even just checking the product’s reviews on Amazon — and our own MacBook reviews — will help you make an informed decision. We’ve also got a guide on the best MacBook for battery life if you are on the hunt for a laptop with impressive longevity.

How to choose a MacBook in 2020

Prime Day MacBook Deals

If you want to buy a MacBook, right now you have three main choices: MacBook Pro 13-inch, MacBook Pro 16-inch, and the MacBook Air 13-inch. These are the latest versions from Apple and they come equipped with the best features and processors so if you’re looking to invest in a good laptop, always go with these. Here’s a highlight of the best features from these MacBooks to help you decide.

MacBook Air 13-inch

The MacBook Air lives up to its name and is the most portable option of the three, only weighing in at 2.8 pounds. It’s also the most affordable pick — starting at only $999. The lower price point doesn’t mean it doesn’t come packed with some of the best features. With the MacBook Air, you have a 13-inch Retina display as well as integrated True Tone technology, which matches the color of the display to the ambient light temperature. It also carries the latest Intel Core Gen 10 so you know you’ll be able to run all the heavy-duty apps you like with such a powerful processor. You also have Touch ID for added protection and privacy. The beautiful backlit Magic Keyboard also makes for a comfortable typing experience and is a clear upgrade from Apple’s older butterfly keyboards. It’s not as fast as the MacBook Pro and it doesn’t have a fully integrated Touch Bar, but for its price and portability factor, the MacBook Air makes a great match for college students, commuters, and globetrotters alike.

MacBook Pro 13-inch

If you’re willing to spend a few extra hundred dollars, the MacBook Pro makes a power-packed laptop at $1,299. Off the bat, the MacBook Pro carries a stronger processor than the Air (even on its base models), so if you do a lot of multitasking that alone could make it worth the upgrade over the MacBook Air. It also comes with the Touch Bar, giving your laptop a sleeker, more responsive keyboard. The display is clearer too since the Pro features wide color and better brightness integration. It’s also only slightly heavier than the MacBook Air, weighing in at 3.1 pounds making it a portable option as well. The high dynamic speakers also pack a punch and give the MacBook Pro an edge over the MacBook Air.

MacBook Pro 16-inch

This is the king of MacBooks — you really can’t get a better Apple laptop than this. It’s definitely a luxury product coming in at $2,399 but puts most traditional PCs to shame. It’s much heavier, weighing in at about 4.3 pounds, but the extra weight has a purpose. You now have a sleek, slim, 16-inch screen with options to add super-powerful AMD Radeon Pro 5600M graphics — every photo and video editor’s dream. The hefty Intel Core processor can also carry quite a load. Being an everyday user of the MacBook Pro, we can safely say that we can have more than 20 tabs open along with Spotify blasting tunes from the laptop without the fan ever acting up. Its all-new thermal architecture is simply amazing: You can even run heavy-duty games without having the laptop give out. There are also four USB-C ports — an upgrade over the regular two offered by the MacBook Pro and Air — so you have tons of options for additional connectivity. These ports also run at Thunderbolt 3 speeds, making them much faster than your average USB-C ports. If you need a powerful laptop that easily transitions from work to play, you can’t do better than the MacBook Pro 16-inch.
