Where are the best MacBook Black Friday deals?
There were a few standout retailers in the US and UK that offered the best MacBook Black Friday deals in 2019. It’s worth having look on their sites as your first port of call, as they may be running offers already. These are also the places we’d expect to see discounts in the 2020 Black Friday event.

MACBOOK PRO BLACK FRIDAY DEALS
Over Black Friday, it’s usually a safe bet that the biggest bargains will be on slightly older models. Apple launched a 16-inch MacBook Pro in late 2019, and this resulted in some price drops on the previous 15-inch MacBook Pro (2019) in the 2019 Black Friday MacBook sale. However, most of the best deals were on the (also pretty new) 13-inch MacBook Pro. 2020 may be similar.
The MacBook Pro’s high price – especially on, say, the Touch Bar models – means it’s easier for retailers to deliver a huge temporary price cut and still turn a profit, so if you’re looking for a powerful creative laptop it’s worth bearing in mind. You’ll still be paying out quite a bit for it, but it’ll be worth the expense.
