Best MacBook Pro and MacBook Air Deals for March 2020

Tuesday March 31, 2020 11:34 AM PDT by Mitchel Broussard

Apple offers a wide selection of options when it comes to the MacBook line. As of 2020, this includes the 13-inch MacBook Pro, 16-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌, and 13-inch MacBook Air. As a general rule of thumb, this guide is mainly focused on the 2019 ‌MacBook Air‌ models, although we have included a few early deals on the new 2020 versions of the ‌MacBook Air‌.


‌MacBook Pro‌ is the company's mainline laptop computer, available in a 13-inch display or a 16-inch display (the latter is now replacing the previous 15-inch option). This choice will most directly factor into how much you pay for the notebook, with 16-inch options typically starting and exceeding the $2,000 price point, and 13-inch options coming in below that.

‌MacBook Air‌ is Apple's low-cost alternative to the ‌MacBook Pro‌, providing ultra portability and cheaper costs at some cuts to performance. Apple just updated this laptop in March 2020 with enhanced specs and a scissor switch keyboard, following a previous update from July 2019. The 13-inch ‌MacBook Air‌ continues to feature a Retina display, slim bezels, Touch ID, new 10th generation Intel chips, up to 16GB RAM, and up to a 2TB SSD.

The Best Deals on MacBook

In this guide, you'll find the best currently available prices for ‌the ‌MacBook Pro‌ and ‌MacBook Air‌ at major Apple resellers including Adorama, Amazon, B&H Photo, Best Buy, and MacMall. We'll be tracking the best prices for all ‌MacBook Pro‌ and ‌MacBook Air‌ models, particularly focusing on the newest 2019 and 2020 base configurations for each model.

Here's a quick snapshot of the cheapest deals for each 2019 MacBook:

16-Inch ‌MacBook Pro‌

The 16-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ is the largest and most powerful notebook from Apple, and it just launched in November 2019. This model comes with up to an 8-core processor, discrete AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series graphics, up to 64GB RAM, up to 8TB of SSD storage, and a 16-inch display, replacing the previous 15-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ models.


Adorama has the best deals on the 16-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ across the board, offering good prices on the entry-level 512GB model and the higher-end 1TB model. To start, you can get the 512GB 16-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ (2.6GHz 6-Core, 16GB RAM) for $2,229.00, down from $2,399.00 ($170 off). This isn't the lowest price the ‌MacBook Pro‌ has ever been, but it is among the best available online right now.

If you want more storage, Adorama has the 1TB model (2.3GHz 8-Core, 16GB RAM) for $2,499.00, down from $2,799.00 ($300 off). This deal is a bit more common so it should be easier to get if you're shopping around for a 16-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ during 2020.

13-Inch ‌MacBook Pro‌

Apple's 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ is smaller than the 16-inch model, so you'll be trading internal power for a smaller footprint. Rather than a 6-core or 8-core processor and discrete graphics, the 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ includes a quad-core processor and integrated graphics.


Apple refreshed the higher-end 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ models in May 2019, and refreshed the entry-level models in July 2019, bringing them on par with the more expensive options and adding a Touch Bar, ‌Touch ID‌, a T2 security chip, and True Tone support.

There are many models of the 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌, so shopping around for deals on this notebook can be tough. One of the best all-around configurations of the 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ is the 256GB model, offering a bit more storage than the entry-level model but without a ~$2K price tag of the high-end model. At B&H Photo, you can get the 256GB 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ (2.4GHz, 8GB RAM) for $1,649.00, down from $1,799.00..

‌MacBook Air‌

At the entry-level spot you'll find ‌MacBook Air‌ models. This version of an Apple notebook is perfect for anyone looking for a reliable laptop computer and doesn't plan on performing too many GPU-intensive tasks. Although it could get away with a few word processor-related jobs, ‌MacBook Air‌ is typically for Internet browsing and not working.


You can get the 128GB ‌MacBook Air‌ from 2019 for $899.00 on B&H Photo, down from $1,099.00. If you'd like a little more storage, the 256GB model is $949.99, down from $1,299.00 on Best Buy.

If you want the newest model, there are some opportunities for early discounts. On Amazon, you can save around $50 on the 2020 ‌MacBook Air‌. The 256GB model with 8GB RAM is on sale for $949.99, down from $999.00; if you want more storage you can get the 512GB model for $1,243.55, down from $1,299.00.
