Best MacBook deals for June 2023

Apple now sells MacBooks equipped with its own M-series chips in a wide range of sizes and price points. The offerings start with the 13-inch MacBook Air from 2020 at $999 and go all the way up to last year’s 16-inch MacBook Pro at $2,499 (not counting anything you can spec out to the stratosphere). And while it’s great to have options, it’s even better to find the right one for you on sale. The good news is that finding a deal on a Mac with an M1 or M2 chip — or a higher-end Pro or Max version — is usually not too difficult.

At this point, we don’t recommend buying any older Intel-based Macs. They’re just completely outclassed by all the newer models unless you have some super-niche Windows Boot Camp needs.

Alternatively, purchasing refurbished is another way to save money on an Apple computer. Apple’s refurbished store provides a one-year warranty on all products and generally offers discounts of up to 15 to 20 percent off the price of a new unit. If you’re looking for a new model, however, here are the best MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini deals available.

The best MacBook Air deals

M1 MacBook Air

The MacBook Air is Apple’s entry-level laptop. It’s best suited for typical productivity work, with a comfortable keyboard, an excellent trackpad, and all-day battery life. The redesigned M2 version of the MacBook Air has been with us for a bit — there’s now even a 15-inch M2 Air — but the 2020 version with an M1 processor and fanless design remains in the lineup as the budget option. For many people, the M1 Air still ticks the right boxes when it comes to performance and price, even if it’s long enough in the tooth to have been finally dethroned in our guide to the best laptops.

The base MacBook Air with the M1 chip comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It typically sells for $999, but Amazon and Best Buy are both currently discounting it to $799.99 (about $200 off). That’s as good of a deal as it gets on the M1 model and matches the laptop’s all-time low. Even more than two years after its release, it’s hard to beat the M1 Air’s value when it comes to performance and battery life given its affordable price tag.

$750$99925% off



$750$99925% off

The MacBook Air is Apple’s entry-level laptop, which comes outfitted with the company’s M1 chip in one of three different colors (silver, space gray, and gold).

$750 at Amazon (256GB)$750 at Best Buy (256GB)

M2 MacBook Air

As for the newer, fancier 13-inch MacBook Air with M2, the base model with 256GB of storage and an eight-core GPU just got a price drop. Along with introducing a 15-inch M2 Air, Apple announced during WWDC that the 13-inch model now starts at $1,099 instead of $1,199. As for deals, the 13-incher is currently selling for a new all-time low of $949 at B&H Photo in the darker midnight shade. There’s also a similarly good deal available at B&H Photo on an upgraded configuration with a 512GB SSD and 10-core GPU for $1,249 ($150 off), assuming you’re okay with the sleek yet fingerprint-prone midnight color.

The new MacBook Air is a super slim and light laptop with a 1080p webcam that’s actually usable as well as a handy magnetic charger that frees up one of its precious two USB-C ports. Its M2 processor didn’t kick-start a revolution like the M1 generation, but it’s a great performer for any user outside of more demanding creatives.

It does have some slight downsides, like slower storage in the base configuration and a notch cutout in its otherwise excellent screen. But even so, there hasn’t been a more travel-friendly laptop offered by Apple since the days of the polarizing 12-inch MacBook, and this one’s good enough to be the No. 1 laptop we now recommend in our buying guide.

MacBook Air with M2 (2022)

$949$109914% off



$949$109914% off

The redesigned MacBook Air is a thin, lightweight device powered by Apple’s latest chip. The M2 model also touts a 1080p webcam and a better display than its predecessor, while retaining features like long battery life and MagSafe charging.

$949 at B&H Photo (256GB)$1249 at B&H Photo (512GB)

The newly announced 15-inch MacBook Air with M2 is a lot like a blown-up 13-inch Air, and judging from our glowing review, there’s nothing wrong with that. Like its smaller counterpart, it has an M2 chip, two Thunderbolt 4 / USB-C ports, MagSafe charging, and its base model comes with a 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM. But it differs by having a larger 15.3-inch notched screen with 2880 x 1864 resolution, six speakers instead of four, a 10-core GPU that costs extra on the 13-inch, and a higher starting price of $1,299. Bumping up to a larger, faster 512GB of storage will run you $1,499.

Surprisingly, the 15-inch M2 Air started receiving some slight discounts before it even shipped, which let early adopters save between $50 and $100. As of right now, you can get it for $65 off by ordering it from Amazon, where it currently starts at $1,234.

$1234$12995% off



$1234$12995% off

Apple’s largest MacBook Air sports a 15-inch display, six-speaker array, and an M2 chip. The base model starts with 8GB of RAM and 256B of storage, though you can configure it with up to 24GB of RAM and 2TB of storage.

$1234 at Amazon (256GB)$1437 at Amazon (512GB)

The best MacBook Pro deals

M2 and M2 Pro MacBook Pro

The MacBook Pro line has been split into two different segments — for the time being. The M2-powered 13-inch MacBook Pro from 2022 remains the lone Touch Bar holdout. It’s sort of a sibling to the 2020 MacBook Air, with a similar design save mostly for a fan that allows it to run at peak performance for longer. And while it’s still plagued by the Touch Bar and has its shortcomings when it comes to speed (at least on the base model), it features terrific battery life, and we occasionally see discounts up to $150 to $200 that help make it more worthwhile.

Right now, the best deals on the 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro are at Amazon and B&H Photo, where the 256GB model with 8GB of RAM is receiving a $150 discount. That drops the price from $1,299 to $1,149. The 512GB model is discounted by $200 at B&H Photo, making it $1,299. These are great deals if the Touch Bar-equipped Mac still floats your boat, but those of you who do intensive creative work may still be better served spending a bit more on the more capable 14-inch MacBook Pro (if you can stretch your budget, of course).

$1099$129915% off



$1099$129915% off

The latest iteration of the 13-inch MacBook Pro is the last Touch Bar holdout. It has two USB-C ports, like the M1 MacBook Air, and now comes equipped with the M2 CPU and is configurable with up to 24GB of unified memory.

$1099 at Best Buy

As for the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros, the latest models are mostly a spec-bumped refresh from the M1 Pro / M1 Max generation, but they now feature faster M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, with the 16-inch M2 Max MacBook Pro also showcasing some excellent battery life gains thanks to the efficiency of the new chips. And now, we’re finally starting to see some good discounts on the M2-based models. Right now, you can get the base 14-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 Pro chip, a 512GB SSD, and 16GB of RAM for $1,749 ($250 off) at Amazon and B&H Photo. There’s even better news if you need additional storage, as the 14-inch model with 1TB of storage, a 12-core M2 Pro CPU, and 19 GPU cores is down to $2,199 ($300 off) at B&H Photo.

14-inch MacBook Pro (M2 Pro, 2023)

$1749$199913% off



$1749$199913% off

The 2023 version of the 14-inch MacBook Pro comes with the new M2 Pro 10-core CPU and 16-core GPU, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD storage. It can also be configured with a higher-end M2 Max processor.

$1749 at B&H Photo (512GB)$1749 at Amazon (512GB)$2199 at B&H Photo (1TB)

I’m also happy to report that it’s a similar situation with the 16-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 Pro, which is on sale for $2,249 ($250 off) at Amazon and B&H Photo in the space gray base configuration with 512GB of storage, 16GB of RAM, a 12-core CPU, and 19-core GPU. However, you can also get that discount on a higher-spec model with 1TB of storage from B&H Photo and Amazon for $2,449 (also $250 off). It’s still a pricey laptop, but having that larger screen is handy when editing through Adobe Premiere timelines or having more real estate in Photoshop.

$2299$24998% off

The 16-inch MacBook Pro for 2023 remains the largest at the top end of the Mac laptop lineup. Its base model comes with the new M2 Pro 12-core CPU and 19-core GPU, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD storage. It can also be configured with a higher-end M2 Max processor. Read our review.

$2299 at Amazon$2299 at Best Buy

M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBook Pro

For now, the older 2021 MacBook Pros remain fine machines, especially if you can find them at a steep discount. However, they’re getting increasingly harder to find — especially in cheaper base configurations. Currently, the 14-inch M1 Pro model with an expanded 1TB SSD is on sale for $1,998.99 ($500 off) at Amazon.

But if you want to really play with power, you can get a 14-inch MacBook Pro with a beefier M1 Max chip that has 10 CPU cores and 32 GPU cores, a 2TB SSD, and 64GB of RAM for $2,499 at B&H Photo. I know that’s a lot of money for a 14-inch laptop, but it’s a whopping $1,600 discount.

14-inch MacBook Pro (2021)

$1999$249920% off



$1999$249920% off

The 14-inch MacBook Pro is a stellar laptop in many ways, with a brilliant display, a great keyboard, fast specs, and several useful ports.

$1999 at Amazon (M1 Pro, 1TB)$2499 at B&H Photo (M1 Max, 2TB)

As for the 16-inch MacBook Pro from 2021, the best deal on the outgoing model is B&H Photo’s discount of $800 on an expanded configuration with 1TB of storage. That drops the price down to $1,899, which is an excellent deal. The only caveat is that this specific model has extra storage but just the base 16GB of RAM. However, it’s the best value you can get on a 16-inch M1 Pro right now.

16-inch MacBook Pro (2021)

$1899$269930% off



$1899$269930% off

The 16-inch MacBook Pro from 2021 is a creative powerhouse equipped with Apple’s last-gen silicon. Configurable with either the M1 Pro or M1 Max, the 16-inch screen can be lent out to up to three external displays and a 4K TV simultaneously thanks to its vast array of ports.

$1899 at B&H Photo (1TB, M1 Pro)

Our reviews of Apple’s M1 Pro and Max MacBook Pro lineup were absolutely beaming with praise. Whether it was the beautiful display or the remarkable performance and battery life they exhibited, these premium laptops are investments that we still recommend — at least, until the newer M2 generation starts seeing bigger discounts. It’s great to see the return of more ports, an SD card reader, and MagSafe charging to some Mac laptops we can once again say are well poised for actual pros. Just mind the notch — or better yet, make it more useful with software.

The best Mac Mini deals

The new Mac Mini comes in a base configuration with Apple’s M2 processor or in a more powerful configuration with the M2 Pro. It’s an excellent upgrade to one of the most affordable yet performant desktop computers you can get (as long as gaming isn’t your priority). The M2 model Mac Mini starts with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD for $599, while the M2 Pro model features a superior processor plus 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage for $1,299. The latter model also features an expanded port selection, from two USB-C ports to four. It’s almost like getting an M2 Pro-powered MacBook Pro 14 but in desktop form. Though keep in mind if you buy either Mac Mini that you have to provide your own mouse, keyboard, and monitor.

The base configuration of the M2 Mac Mini is currently on sale for $499 ($100 off) at B&H Photo, which is the lowest price we’ve seen on Apple’s latest desktop machine so far. The M2 Pro model is receiving an even bigger discount of $200 at B&H Photo through the end of the day, knocking it down to $1,099. That’s now the best price yet on the M2 Pro version, which is like a baby Mac Studio and a great value in terms of performance.

Mac Mini (2023)

$499$59917% off



$499$59917% off

The revised Mac Mini for 2023 starts at $599 for an M2-powered model with an eight-core CPU, 10-core GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD. The Mini can also be had with the M2 Pro chip, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and more robust port selection for $1,299.
