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)

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.
