MacBook Air Cyber Monday deals 

The 2019 MacBook Air packs everything you could ever want in a stylish ultra-portable. In our MacBook Air 2019 review, we were impressed by its crisp, high-res screen, and strong audio quality.

The 2019 model sports True Tone technology, which adjusts the Air's screen based on ambient lighting. It's not a must-have feature, so we'd opt for the cheaper 2018 MacBook Air. Otherwise, both models pack a 13.3-inch Retina display, 1.6GHz dual-core Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. 

MacBook Pro Cyber Monday deals

If you want a Mac with more punch than the MacBook Air, you'll want a MacBook Pro. Apple's top-tier laptop comes with a 13-inch, 15-inch display or 16-inch display. These machines also offer more powerful Intel CPUs and in some cases, dedicated graphics cards. 

The MacBook Pro is one of the best laptops for video editing and the best MacBook Pro deals are usually found at Amazon and Best Buy. The former is currently taking $140 off the new MacBook Pro 16-inch. The latter has taken from  $100 to $500 off Apple's MacBook Pro. If you're looking for the cheapest MacBook Pro possible, look for deals on the 13-inch model, which has hit $999 in the past.
