Let’s admit it: It’s often tough to get a deal on a brand-new Apple product. Typically you have to wait at least a year for prices on the good stuff to start dropping, and even then the “deals” are relative.
But at the moment Best Buy is living up to its name. For today only, you can take $250 off Apple’s new 12-inch MacBooks in either the 256GB or 512GB models and in a variety of colors. You’ll even get free shipping. That means the prices start at just $1,049.99, and at the moment, this looks like the best deal for MacBooks by a long shot.
For that matter, it’s also one of the best everyday laptops you can get. In our review last year, we said this version of the MacBook is “a better buy than it has been, thanks to performance improvements by its processor and graphics upgrade.”
Taking advantage of this deal will get your a pleasantly portable work machine with a beautiful 2304×1440 display, a Force Touch trackpad, a 1.2GHz Intel Core m3 Dual-Core chip, and at least 8GB of RAM. If you’re someone who likes to work on the go, these days a MacBook is often a better choice than a MacBook Air.
In our buying guide for the different types of Macs, the new MacBook was our “lightweight” choice.
“If you’re road warrior making presentations to clients and groups, or working at remote locations, the MacBook is capable of handling your workload,” we said. “And you’ll barely notice it in your bag—your back will thank you.”
Take advantage of this deal, and your wallet will thank you as well.
