Slash $400 off the cost of a new MacBook Pro (M1 Pro)

SAVE $400: The 2021 14-inch MacBook Pro (M1 Pro chip, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD) is on sale for $1,599(opens in a new tab) at Best Buy as of Sept. 2 — that’s 20% in savings and the lowest price we’ve seen.

Good things come to those who wait to buy new MacBooks. If you held off on upgrading your laptop in hopes of scoring a Labor Day deal, your efforts have been rewarded with $400 in savings on the 2021 MacBook Pro.

As of Sept. 2, the 2021 14-inch MacBook Pro (M1 Pro chip, 16GB, 512GB SSD)(opens in a new tab) base model is on sale for $1,599 at Best Buy. That’s 20% in savings and the lowest price we’ve seen to date. In comparison, it was listed for $200 more at $1,799 on Prime Day in July. The same base model is sold out at Amazon(opens in a new tab) at that price, FWIW.

Don’t worry about missing out on the perks of buying from Apple directly. You’ll actually get more with your purchase via Best Buy — the M1 Pro MacBook Pro comes with six free months of Apple Music and Apple News+, as well as three free months of Apple TV+ (new or returning subscribers only).

Released at the end of 2021, the 14-inch MacBook Pro features Apple’s custom-made M1 Pro silicon chip, which is said to be 70 percent faster than the original M1 chip from 2020. It also includes a notably-updated Liquid Retina XDR display, 1080p FaceTime camera, the return of physical function keys, more ports, a MagSafe power cable, and more — some of which were long overdue upgrades.

It’s certainly a powerhouse, but it’s not exactly the best choice for casual laptop users. As Mashable deputy tech editor Joseph Volpe puts it in his full review, “Would I prefer to work on this M1 MacBook Pro? Absolutely. Do I need to? Not at all.”

Creatives who need a video editing and graphics workstation, on the other hand, could definitely benefit from this beast of a machine. And your wallet will appreciate the $400 discount(opens in a new tab).
