What to look for in MacBook deals

No matter what MacBook you’re looking for, we’d recommend starting off with a list of the features and specs that are important to you and how much you’d like to spend. 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 be misleading about RRP to make a deal look better than it is - always compare to the price on the Apple store to make sure you're getting good value.

You also want to be careful of the age of any given MacBook - models from different years might have similar looking specs on paper, so take care to double-check processor speeds and even model numbers to make sure you're not paying over the odds for a laptop from a few years ago.

Luckily we've checked out the deals here and we'll tell you exactly what's on offer - and if it's an older model we'll tell you so.

Where to get MacBook deals

Apple never really offers discounts on its MacBooks - other than through its official refurbished store. However, other resellers are still offering discounts on MacBooks. You may still find deals on the following sites:

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 take advantage.

Best MacBook student deals

Another great resource to help you save is the Macworld UK's Student Deals page, particularly the Tech & Mobile section. Right now, Apple is offering up to 10% off Macs as well as up to 50% off Apple Care. Simply create an account, log in, and verify your student status, and the discount is yours. 

You can also save 8% on accessories and 5% on iPads (more iPad deals). See all Macworld UK student tech deals here
