Apple products don't go on sale very often, but Cyber Monday is no ordinary time of the year. 

Best Buy is selling the 13-inch MacBook Pro with a 256GB SSD for just $1,199 after a $300 discount. As part of its Cyber Monday savings, the retailer also has the 128GB model for $1,099, or $200 off. 

The 13-inch MacBook Pro is the best Apple laptop for most users because of its fast performance and relatively affordable price.

Arguably the best Apple laptop for most users, the MacBook Pro gives you loads of power in a super-portable chassis. This $1,099 version has two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a 128GB SSD.

If you need more storage, this higher-end MacBook Pro is $300 off. The specific model comes with a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and two Thunderbolt 3 ports.

In our 13-inch MacBook Pro review, we praised the smaller model with Touch Bar for its speedy performance, premium aluminum design and beautiful Retina display. 

While the battery life could be a bit longer (8 hours and 41 minutes isn't bad, though), the MacBook Pro gets you powerful speakers, an improved keyboard (although it's still with Butterfly switches) and a useful Touch ID fingerprint sensor. 

We should reiterate: MacBooks don't go on sale very often, and this $300 discount is one of the steepest deals available on any Apple laptop.
