There’s no disputing that Apple produces some pretty stunning tech, but it’s not without its premium price tag. Luckily for you, we’re here to scope out the best deals across both MacBooks and iPads so that you too can benefit from Apple’s powerful machines.
Whether you’re heading to university or a professional looking to upgrade their laptop, Apple is a top-notch place to start with its array of untouchable, beautiful devices that not only tick that aesthetically pleasing design that works as a bit of a social symbol as well. Apple products also boast a powerful, impressive performance, especially in the face of larger, more creative projects.
When it comes to bagging a good deal, there are a few things we’d suggest — other than staying tuned to this here hub, that is. It goes without saying you’re not likely to nab a deal on the official Apple store itself. Apple only sell its latest range of devices, rarely if ever selling off older models or discounted products before unceremoniously removing from its website. However, you can source previous and discontinued models elsewhere, and bag heavy reductions, too.
For students that want the latest, top spec Macs or iPads, you can also benefit from Apple’s education store, giving prospective students a 10% saving across selected products.
For those of us not in possession of a student ID (RIP), or seeking a more significant saving, there are plenty of exceptional bargains out there — and we’re collating the best of the best below.
Best MacBook Deals
Although now discontinued from Apple’s official line-up, you can still get your hands on the MacBook from other retailers, likely for far lower than its original RRP.
Said to be a middle-ground between the Pro and Air model, the MacBook’s defining distinction is sitting as Apple’s thinnest, lightest laptop at 920g, offering a 12-inch display. With great portability, this is ideal for someone whose workspace moves around with them, allowing for you to easily slip it into your bag and lug around without too much effort.
Best MacBook Air Deals
Recently receiving a revamp after years of not having any superficial changes, the MacBook Air is a swish laptop set-up that you can now buy in three gorgeous hues — Gold, Space Grey and classic Silver.
With the MacBook well and truly vetoed, the Air is the most lightweight laptop still currently sold by Apple. It also boasts Retina display and True-Tone technology for a brilliant visual experience. For the environmentally conscious, it should be known the 2018 MacBook Air is also made from 100% recycled aluminium.
Best MacBook Pro Deals
The clue is in the name, the MacBook Pro is one for the professionals. Offering the ability to really pick and choose exactly what you want, you can pay anywhere from £1,168 for a 13-inch, low range MacBook Pro, all the way up to £4,422 for the fully-loaded 15-inch MacBook Pro.
The Pro can really take the flack, offering a powerful processing speed for loading big files and programmes. If you’re a creative looking to edit videos or photos on a big scale, the Pro can breeze through any given task as the model with the most advanced graphics, processor and fast storage capabilities. A high performance laptop, the MacBook also comes with the option to have the most recent, ninth gen 8-core Intel Core i9 Processor at your fingertips with Turbo Boost speeds.
Best iPad Deals
Coming completely out of left field, the iPad could be a contender to get you through any given computing task. With the ability to download word processing applications, connect a keyboard and utilise the Apple Pencil for some swoon-worthy note-taking, the iPad is a cheaper, more flexible alternative if you’re not quite ready to commit to one of Apple’s pricier laptops and want something uber portable.
For simple tasks like presentations and documents, the iPad Mini is as inexpensive as it gets whilst still being a powerful little tablet. If you’d prefer a slightly larger screen, the iPad sits at 9.7-inches in comparison to the Mini’s 5.3-inches.
If you’re looking to do more heavy duty tasks, however, like graphic design and running larger applications like anything from Adobe’s creative suite, the iPad Pro is just the ticket with Apple’s most powerful A12X Bionic chip, pegging it as “faster than most PC laptops.”
