The MacBook Pro lineup is more variable than ever with three distinct product choices all using powerful M-series processors. Customers can choose between the M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max based on their individual needs and price range.
13-inch MacBook Pro
The 13-inch MacBook Pro has an M1 processor and active cooling making it able to perform better than the MacBook Air. Apple may have released new MacBooks recently, this 2020 model is still a powerful machine capable of performing most users’ needs.
Apple Authorized Reseller Adorama is slashing up to $200 off the M1 13-inch MacBook Pro line with this cost-saving activation link and promo code APINSIDER. Need help? Step-by-step activation instructions can be found here.

14-inch MacBook Pro
The 14-inch MacBook Pro is one of two new MacBook Pros introduced in 2021. It runs the M1 Pro or M1 Max processor based on the configuration at checkout, and its only difference from the 16-inch model is its size and thermal capacity.
Black Friday specials are driving prices down to as low as $1,799, the cheapest we’ve seen since the notebooks were unveiled in October.
