Best Black Friday 2019 Macbook deals
Stay tuned for this year's Macbook deals.
Apple launched its latest line of Macbooks in 2015, replacing the existing models that originally launched in 2012. There have been three variations of the Macbook line since 2015, with Apple updating the device in April 2016 and again in June 2017. Apple officially dropped the Macbook from its line in 2019, but models are still availble on retailers, such as Amazon. While you can no longer buy a Macbook directly from Apple, it still offers the Macbook Pro and Macbook air.
There are currently two models of Macbook at various retailers, one which features a 1.2GHz processor and one which features a 1.3GHz processer.
Macbook 1.2GHz Processor (Reg. price $1,299): This model features a 1.2GHz dual-core 7th-generation Intel Core m3 processor, 8GB 1866MHz LPDDR3 memory, 256GB SSD storage, Intel HD Graphics 615, and a keyboard with second-generation butterfly mechanism.
Macbook 1.3GHz Processor (Reg. price $1,599): This model features a 1.3GHz dual-core 7th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB 1866MHz LPDDR3 memory, 512GB SSD storage, Intel HD Graphics 615, and a keyboard with second-generation butterfly mechanism.
The main differences between the two are the m3 processor in the 1.2GHz model versus the i5 processor in the 1.3GHz model and the SSD storage space. While the cheaper model may be the more inexpensive of the two, you’ll get more bang for your buck by scoring the 1.3GHz model. Both devices come in four colors: Space Gray, Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver.
Apple typically shies away from direct Black Friday deals, so if you’re looking to get a great deal on a Macbook Air or Pro deals this year you’ll most likely need to focus on Best Buy, Target and Walmart.
