The MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are among the best laptops to buy — and among the priciest. Thankfully, Best Buy is ushering in 2021 with a sitewide Apple shopping event that takes $150 off Apple's stylish notebooks.
As part of the sale, you can get the 256GB base model MacBook Pro for just $1,099.99. Normally, this notebook retails for $1,249.99 so that's $150 in savings. It's one of the best prices we've seen for this laptop and one of the best MacBook deals of 2021 so far.
If you can afford to splurge, Best Buy also offers the 512GB model MacBook Pro for $1,299.99 ($150 off).

In our MacBook Pro 2020 review, we praised its elegant design and exceptional SSD speeds. We also like its solid performance and gave it a rating of 4 out of 5 stars. On our Laptop Mag Battery Test, the MacBook Pro endured 10 hours and 21 minutes. That's longer than the 9:05 premium laptop average.
Design-wise, the 2020 MacBook Pro looks identical to its predecessor. It sports the same all-aluminum build, evoking the elegant, familiar appeal of a MacBook. Just about the only physical difference is that Apple replaced that problematic Butterfly keyboard with a Magic Keyboard.
At 3.1 pounds and 12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches in dimensions, the new MacBook Pro is heavier than competitors like the HP Spectre x360 (2.7 pounds, 12.1 x 7.7 x 0.7 inches) and Dell XPS 13 (2.8 pounds, 11.6 x 7.8 x 0.6 inches).
There's no telling how long Best Buy's Apple shopping event will last, so don't hesitate too long!
