Apple’s M3 chips power some of the very best laptops around right now. The latest Apple silicon also beats at the heart of some of the best desktops Apple has ever made, too. The latest 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro, as well as the iMac desktop, all benefit from Apple’s latest chips and have proved to be pretty fast indeed. The M3 MacBook Air is the company’s best thin and light laptop to date, and it takes Apple’s most popular computer and makes it better than ever. But with so much speed and incredible battery life, it’s perhaps no surprise that these machines aren’t cheap. That is, unless you take advantage of one of these deals.

Watch this: Apple Updates 13- and 15-Inch MacBook Air With M3 Chips

Two years after Apple last updated its sleek 24-inch all-in-one iMac desktop, the new model comes equipped with the basic M3 chip. There’s also the updated 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro for anyone who likes to take their Mac on the go. The smaller 14-inch model can be equipped with the standard M3, the step-up M3 Pro or the high-end M3 Max processor, while the larger 16-inch Pro is available only with the M3 Pro or Max.

Looking for something even thinner and lighter? The 13- and 15-inch MacBook Air models have also now been updated with prices starting from $1,099 for a machine that you can take anywhere without having to worry about taking a charger or whether it’ll cope with the demands of everyday computing.

M3 MacBook Pro

The 14-inch M3 MacBook Pro starts at $1,599, while the 16-inch model starts at $2,499. Both models feature a stunning Liquid Retina XDR display and a built-in HDMI port and SD card reader, making them versatile machines for creatives and professionals. They’re available directly from Apple, as well as Amazon, Best Buy and B&H Photo. Deals will be hard to come by initially.

It’s worth noting that Apple has a trade-in program that can knock hundreds off the starting price of a new Mac in exchange for your old computer, and you’ll get 3% cash back when you make the purchase using your Apple card. For purchases this big, that ends up being a decent chunk of change.

B&H is the place to be if you want to pick up a new M3 14-inch MacBook Pro, with prices starting from just $1,449 for the base model, a savings of $150. Upgrade to 1TB of solid-state storage and you’ll pay $1,599, which is $200 off the normal price and the same price you’d normally pay for the 512GB variant.

The 16-inch M3 MacBook Pro normally starts at $2,499. Unlike the 14-inch model, the basic configuration comes with the step-up M3 Pro chip, along with 512GB of storage and a blazing 18GB of RAM. Prices start at $3,249 if you want the high-end M3 Max processor.

You can pick up the basic 512GB model in space black for $2,249 at Amazon and you don’t need to enter any codes or clip any coupons to get that price, thankfully. Want the silver model? That’ll cost an extra $50, but that’s still a considerable saving over the price you’d pay normally.

M3 MacBook Air

The latest iteration in Apple’s thin and light laptops, the M3 MacBook Air comes in two display sizes with configurations starting with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Both are perfect companions for taking to college or just lugging between meetings, and with some gorgeous colors to choose from you’ll likely find one to fit your style as well.

The new 15-inch M3 MacBook Air is now available and you can pick one up with a modest $49 savings if you order from Amazon today.

M3 24-inch iMac

Apple’s all-in-one iMac desktop was last updated in 2021, so the new M3 model is a pretty serious upgrade. It’s available only with the basic M3 chip but features a stunning 24-inch 4.5K Retina display. All configurations come with the wireless Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse, so you’ve got everything you need to get set up right away. 

Like the new M3 MacBook Pro laptops, this desktop is available at Apple, Amazon, Best Buy and B&H Photo. Apple is also offering discounts with an eligible trade-in, and you’ll get 3% cash back when you make the purchase using your Apple Card.

This all-in-one desktop normally starts at $1,299 for the basic configuration, which has an eight-core GPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. You can upgrade to a 10-core GPU for $1,499 and double the storage for $1,699. 

Right now, Amazon will sell you the base configuration with a $100 discount, bringing the price down to just $1,199. This price is limited to only some of the colors, though.

These are the latest and greatest Macs that Apple has to offer, but we’re sure to see some bigger discounts on older models. Check out our roundup of the best MacBook deals for serious savings on Apple laptops.
