Apple's industry-disrupting 2021 MacBook Pro and 2020 Apple MacBook Air are on sale
I've never been particular about my workstations and used to be okay with any model that was recommended to me as long as it was not a total slowpoke but when Apple introduced its M family of chips and I read all the reviews about how amazing it was, I knew I had to get a MacBook and it was money well spent. We normally write about phones, tablets, wearables, and accessories on this website, but I made an exception today as Apple's MacBook Pro 2021 is on sale at a 20 percent discount for Black Friday and if I were shopping for a laptop today, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. The model that I got - the 2020 Apple MacBook Air - has also been marked down.

If you are a professional and want the most powerful laptop money can buy, the MacBook Pro 2021 is the safest bet. It is powered by Apple's second in-house computer chip, the M1 Pro, and is extraordinarily fast. It can handle demanding workloads without a hitch, which makes it ideal for developers, graphic designers, and scientists. Graphics performance has also improved, so it will also appeal to the gamer in you.

Thanks to the new design and advanced thermal system, throttling is kept to a minimum. The laptop is also very power efficient and will easily last through a work day and it also supports fast charging, requiring just 30 minutes for a 50 percent charge.

It has a 14 inches 120Hz Liquid Retina XDR display which features the mini-LED tech that was previously exclusive to the iPad Pro. The device comes with a 1080p FaceTime HD camera for video calls.

MacBook Pro 2021

14.2-inch Liquid Retina XDR display | ProMotion technology 120Hz refresh rate | Apple M1 Pro chip | 1080p FaceTime HD camera| Six-speaker sound system | Extraordinary Battery Life

2020 Apple MacBook Air

13.3-inch Retina display | Apple M1 chip | Up to 18 hours of battery life | 3.5 mm headphone jack | Touch ID sensor | FaceTime HD camera

It has an extensive range of ports, including three Thunderbolt 4 ports, an SDXC card slot, an HDMI port, and a headphone jack, and also supports the MagSafe charging system.

Even people who had sworn off Apple computers because of missing ports, the thick design, and the Touch Bar will appreciate the MacBook Pro 14 as Apple reversed nearly all unpopular design decisions with this model.

In short, if you need a no-compromise laptop with a beautiful display, long battery life, amazing keyboard, easy-to-use trackpad, best speakers, large port selection, and phenomenal performance, the MacBook Pro 2021 should totally be your next laptop, and the best part is you won't even have to pay the full retail price, as it's currently on sale.

The 512GB model that costs $1,999 is retailing for $1,599.99 on Amazon, which translates to savings of $399, which is a big amount. That's an incredible deal and you should think long and hard before passing it up.

If you don't really need an absolute beast of a chip, the M1 MacBook Air is the better choice. Truth be told, I bought it in part because it was recommended to me by a colleague when I was looking for a tablet. If you have the budget for only one device and can't decide between a laptop and a tablet, go for the MacBook Air as it's incredibly lightweight and portable. Don't be fooled by its small footprint though as it still packs a ton of power and its battery life is amazingly long.

The 256GB model which has a street price of $999 is currently on sale for $799, so you will get to save $200.
