There are an awful lot of deals on the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro right now. B&H Photo is selling the 2019 MacBook Air for $900 — that’s the model that was just — and the step-up 256GB version for $1,100. And the retailer has also removed $200 from the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which now starts at $1,100. (The 256GB version is $220 off — selling for $1,279.)
And Amazon is getting back into the game, with a $209 discount on the. It now starts at $2,190.
The 2018 MacBook Air deals appear to be gone for now, with that particular model out of stock in most stores. That noted, we continue to see what looks like a compelling deal on the previous MacBook Air model for $700. But it’s actually the previous, previous model — from 2017. Don’t buy it. Spend $200 more on the most recent one from July.
Apple is stillof its forthcoming with every purchase of a MacBook Air, regardless of where you buy it. And note that this deal also extends to any new or refurbished , , , or .

It’s not quite as staggering as Amazon’s $300 Black Friday discount, but B&H Photo’s $200 markdown on the 2019 MacBook Air is a solid deal in its own right. Note that this is the brand-new model with the Retina True Tone display that Apple released in July.
B&H Photo has also trimmed $200 off the price of the 128GB version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro released earlier this year. But the better deal is on the 256GB model, which features a $230 discount that brings it down to $1,279 — the all-time lowest price we’ve seen on this laptop.
As Apple’s greatest-hits compilation of MacBook features, the new 16-inch MacBook Pro features a bigger screen, with a higher resolution; upgrades to processor, GPU, RAM and storage options; and a much-improved keyboard. Amazon is currently offering the biggest discount we’ve seen to date.
