Apple’s Black Friday sale on the M3-powered MacBook Pros is creating a lot of buzz. Just weeks after the debut of these new models, the base 14-inch M3 MacBook Pro is already available at a discounted price of $1,449, marking a $150 savings from the regular retail price. This model has been given a high score of 90 in reviews, positioning it between the MacBook Air and the more powerful MBPs.
The M3 chip features an eight-core CPU and a 10-core GPU, making it a robust performer for basic tasks with fast and efficient processing. The 14-inch MBP comes with a stunning Liquid Retina XDR display, coupled with Apple’s top-notch keyboard and trackpad.
Despite its impressive features, the base model only comes with 8GB of RAM, which might be an issue for users who need to have multiple apps open or numerous browser tabs running simultaneously. In such cases, it may be necessary to upgrade to a more capable version with increased RAM. Additionally, this base model also has one less USB-C port compared to its pricier counterparts.
For those willing to invest a little more, an upgraded model with a more powerful M3 Pro chip (11‑core CPU and 14‑core GPU), 18GB of RAM, and a third USB-C/Thunderbolt port is available at $1,849 during the Black Friday sale, also marking a $150 discount. However, this model still comes with 512GB of storage.
Customers looking for a larger screen can opt for the 16-inch M3 MacBook Pro, which is typically discounted by $200 for Black Friday. The 16-inch model is similar to the 14-inch variant but comes with a larger screen and a spec bump.
For those seeking a highly capable version, a 16-inch model with an M3 Pro chipset having a 12‑core CPU and 18‑core GPU, a 16.2-inch display, 18GB of memory, and 512GB of storage is available at $2,299, presenting an eight percent discount from the regular price of $2,499. This version is also offered in the attractive Space Black colorway.
With such impressive discounts and a wide range of options available, the Black Friday sale on M3-powered MacBook Pros is an ideal opportunity for Apple enthusiasts and users looking to upgrade their devices.
