It can be tricky to find discounts on MacBooks, but they are out there. With Black Friday approaching, MacBook deals will begin to ramp up and you’ll find more Apple laptop bargains than ever on the biggest shopping day and weekend of the year.

Here we bring you the best MacBook deals (that's versions of the 12in MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro) and tips on how to get the most out of Black Friday.

What to expect on Black Friday

Black Friday falls on 24 November this year (tomorrow!), and will be followed by Cyber Monday on the 27th November. In recent years, retailers have used these huge shopping days to offer enormous discounts across the board, so you can expect to pick up some amazing bargains if you plan ahead.

No matter what you’re looking for, we’d recommend writing a list of the things you’d like to buy on Black Friday and how much you’d like to spend on them. Don’t be tricked into buying something you don’t need because it seems like a good price, and be aware that some retailers have been known to put prices up ahead of Black Friday in order to make the deals look better, so it’s well worth making a note of prices now to help avoid being fooled.

Where to get MacBook deals on Black Friday

Don’t expect Apple itself to discount its MacBooks. The company has taken part in Black Friday several times, but tends to offer an additional bonus when you buy a MacBook rather than offering money off. For example, last year Apple offered an Apple Store gift card worth up to £120 when you purchased a Mac on Black Friday.

But just because Apple itself isn’t likely to discount Macs, doesn’t mean resellers will do the same. We expect the following retailers to have great MacBook deals on Black Friday:

If you’ve found that you’re missing out on Amazon’s Lightning deals, which run for just a few hours and offer limited stock, we’d recommend signing up for Amazon’s 30 day free trial of Prime, which will get you access to deals 30 minutes before everyone else. Plus, you’ll get free next-day delivery with the Prime trial, as well as access to Prime Instant Video and more.

Sign up for Prime now to get ready for the Black Friday action.
