For a limited time, save $100 on Apple's best MacBook Pro yet. Besides Apple's M1 8-core CPU, this MacBook packs a 13.3-inch (2560 x 1600) IPS Retina display, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD. It scored a rare 4.5 out of 5-star rating from us, making it one of the top laptops out there. If you require more storage, the MacBook Pro M1 with 512GB SSD is on sale for $1,399 ($100 off)

Apple's MacBook Pro with M1 processor is the ideal laptop for power users. The base model has a 13.3-inch (2560 x 1600) Retina display, Apple M1 8-core CPU, 8GB of RAM and 8-core GPU. For your storage needs, there's a speedy 256GB SSD on board. 

In our MacBook Pro M1 2020 review, we praise its fantastic overall and gaming performance and lightning-fast SSD. It lasted16 hours and 32 minutes on our Laptop Mag Battery Test which we found pretty impressive. We gave the MacBook Pro M1 a rating of 5 out of 5 stars and the Editor's Choice award for its overall and gaming performance.

During real-world tests, the MacBook Pro M1 scoffed at the heavy workloads we tossed its way. Even with 50 tabs open in Google Chrome — running Tweetdeck, Slack, YouTube, Tidal, Gmail, Google Sheets, and Twitch — the MacBook Pro M1 didn't lag.

Design-wise, the MacBook Pro M1 retains the same iconic aluminum chassis with Space Gray finish and glossy Apple logo lineage. At 3 pounds and measuring 12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches, the M1 MacBook Pro is on par with its rivals. 

It's slightly heavier than competitors like the Dell XPS 13 (2.8 pounds, 11.6 x 7.8 x 0.6 inches) and 13-inch HP Spectre x360 (2.7 pounds, 12.1 x 7.7 x 0.7 inches). For your connectivity needs, the MacBook Pro has two Thunderbolt ports with USB 4 support and a headphone jack.

Amazon didn't put an expiration on this deal, so don't hesitate too long to grab it while you still can.
