The Best MacBook Deals in May 2019
Apple fans who are in the market for a new laptop have plenty of reasons to rejoice this week. Although MacBooks are among some of the most expensive PC laptops around, you can get just about every MacBook for less than retail price.
Although we still have a few more days to go before we can fire up the grill, Memorial Day sales on laptops are in abundance this week.
Amazon for instance, currently offers discounts up to $300 off select models of Apple's stylish notebooks.
The online retailer has the MacBook Pro 13-inch on sale for $1,099.99. Normally priced at $1,300, that's $199 off its regular price. It features a 2.3 GHz Core i5 dual-core processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of speedy SSD storage. It's the best price we could find for this configuration MacBook.
With strong performance, macOS and up to 10 hours of battery life, the MacBook Pro is suitable for power users. If you require more storage, Amazon also has the 256GB model MacBook Pro 15-inch with Touch Bar on sale for $2,199.99 ($200 off).
Here are the best MacBook deals you can take advantage of today.
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 audio.
Power users will want to stick with Apple's MacBook Pro line; otherwise, the 2018 MacBook Air is a solid everyday laptop.
- MacBook Air 2018 for $1,099.99 ($99 off, Core i5/8GB/128GB)

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. As we note in our MacBook Pro review, we were impressed by its remarkably fast SSD and overall blazing performance.
