Retailers are giving Apple fans plenty of reasons to rejoice this month. Back-to-school and semiannual clearance sales are picking up steam, which translates into more savings.

We're seeing some of the best laptop deals of the year right now, so if you're in the market for a new MacBook, now's the time to snag one for a great price. 

Currently, two major retailers offer the best MacBook deals: Amazon and Best Buy. Amazon especially has increased the number of Apple discounts it offers and usually leads the charge when it comes to Apple laptop deals. 

Best Buy is currently taking $100 to $700 off select MacBook Pros with discounted models starting at $1,099 ($200 off) for the base 13-inch MacBook Pro (2017 gen). It features a 2.3 GHz Core i5 quad-core CPU, 8GB RAM, and a 125GB SSD. For $100 more you can score the 2019 MacBook Pro 13-inch laptop for $1,199 ($100 off)

If you're into everything that is Apple, take a look at the numerous iPad deals you can get right now. 

Otherwise, here are the other noteworthy MacBook deals: 

MacBook Air Deals

The MacBook Air 2018  packs everything we ever wanted from Apple's stylish ultra-portable. In our MacBook Air 2018 review, we were impressed by its thin and light design, sharp Retina display and powerful performance. We reviewed the MacBook Air 2019 and liked its sleek look and good endurance.

The 2017 model is a catch to find anywhere, as Apple discontinued this laptop which is beloved for two reasons: it offers a trustworthy keyboard (not Apple's Butterfly-switch keyboard) and the MagSafe 2.

MacBook Pro Deals

If you want a portable Mac with more punch than the MacBook Air, you'll want either a 13-inch or 15-inch MacBook Pro. These machines offer the latest Intel CPUs and remarkably fast SSD performance.

Here are the best MacBook Pro deals you'll find right now.

MacBook 12-inch Deals

Apple's 12-inch MacBook is in need of a hardware upgrade, especially in light of the MacBook Air's recent makeover. So while we'd opt for the Air in place of the MacBook, the latter is on sale if you really need one.
