Apple has unveiled a new MacBook Pro with a 16-inch screen, updated keyboard and sticker price of $2,399. And with Black Friday on the horizon, we may see a perfect storm hit Apple laptop prices over the next two weeks. Already, major discounts have popped up on previous versions of Apple's Pro laptop. Right now, this Touch Bar model, which hit an all-time low of $1,100 yesterday, costs $1,150 -- the same price as some of the equivalent MacBook Air models highlighted below. Bottom line: The best Apple laptop deal of the moment is on the early 2019 MacBook Pro.

Otherwise, MacBook Air discounts are holding steady. Amazon has a lock on the best deals -- which aren't all that great, honestly -- on both the 2018 and 2019 models. 

A word of caution: Amazon's search results have begun to surface older MacBook Air models from 2017 -- which you shouldn't buy under any circumstance -- with the designation "Previous Model." To be clear, we think the entry-level 2018 model is still worth buying when priced between $800 and $900. (The 256GB model from 2018 is usually not priced competitively.) Otherwise, the best deals are on the 2019 version. The links below have been vetted.

Apple is still throwing in a free year of its forthcoming Apple TV Plus service with every purchase of a MacBook Air -- regardless of where you buy it. (Note that this deal extends to any new or refurbished iPhoneiPadApple TVMac or iPod Touch, too.)
