Best Apple MacBook deals for 2020: Amazon's 13-inch MacBook Pro costs $1,100

A $200 discount brings the lowest price we've seen this year.

Amazon has brought Black Friday pricing back to the MacBook Pro. With a $200 discount, the new 13-inch model, introduced in summer 2019, now costs $1,100. That's what you'd pay for a similarly configured MacBook Air at the Apple Store. And it's the best price we've seen for the MacBook Pro since last year. 

If you're in the market for a larger MacBook Pro -- that is, the 16-inch model Apple dropped in the fall -- Amazon has trimmed $210 from the price of the entry-level configuration. But there's an even bigger discount at Adorama, which has slashed $300 from a higher-end configuration with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD.

Amazon and Best Buy are both offering $200 off the entry-level MacBook Air. For $900, you get Apple's entry-level laptop equipped with a beautiful Retina display, USB Type-C ports and Touch ID. And the step-up model, with 256GB of storage, is also on sale for $1,100

B&H Photo has an intriguing deal on an older MacBook Pro: $500 off the 13-inch model from 2017. Yes, it has an older dual-core 2.3GHz Intel Core i5 processor -- not the quad-core version Apple offers with its most recent version -- but also 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, for $1,399. 

One note of caution: Amazon and others continue to offer what looks like a compelling deal on the previous MacBook Air model for $750. But it's actually the previous, previous model -- from 2017. Don't buy it. Spend $150 more on the most recent one from July
