Apple’s huge sale at Best Buy knocks the MacBook Pro M2 off by $200
Apple’s latest laptops have already earned a spot on our list of the best MacBooks you can buy. However, new laptops start at a wallet-breaking $1,999. Plus, they’re pretty beat up on most basic tasks. Fortunately, Best Buy offers an epic deal on Apple’s other MacBook Pros.
For a limited time, you can get the 13-inch MacBook Pro M2 on sale for $1,099 at Best Buy (Opens in a new tab). That’s $200 off and is the best price we’ve seen for Apple’s excellent MacBook Pro. It’s also one of the best MacBook deals available today. Not shopping for a new MacBook? Best Buy is also lowering the price of other Apple gear this weekend.
Yes, we’d all love to own the Apple M2 Pro’s MacBook Pro, but unless you’re a creative professional, you’re better off with the cheaper 13-inch MacBook Pro, which still offers impressive power for the price.
In our MacBook Pro 13″ M2 (2022) review, we called Apple’s 13-inch laptop the most powerful base line 13-inch MacBook Pro Apple has ever released. Although the new processor isn’t quite as powerful as the M1 Pro or M1 Max chip , it’s still a big improvement over the original M1 chip.
In Geekbench 5.4, which measures overall performance, the MacBook Pro 2022 scored 8911 on the multi-core portion of the test. That’s well above the M1 MacBook Pro’s score of 7,571 on Geekbench 5.3. It also runs circles around the best Windows laptops, beating out laptops like the Asus Zenbook 13 OLED (6,411) and Dell XPS 13 OLED (5,420) in the same performance test. In comparison, the new 14-inch MacBook Pro M2 Pro scored a record 14,965 in the same test.
