Great MacBook Pro deals are few and far between at the best of times, so getting one just a few weeks after the launch of a new model is a real steal!
This 13-inch MacBook Pro deal slashes £149 off the price of the latest model, which normally sells for £1,799 – it’s down to just £1,649 at Laptops Direct right now!
For that, you get a quad-core Intel 10th-gen processor with strong Iris Plus graphics, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of ultra-fast storage, and a 2560×1600 Retina display.
The MacBook Pro 13-inch is a great balance of power and portability. Its screen size gives it a smaller volume and makes it easier to carry, of course, but the 2GHz quad-core processor (which can boost itself to 3.8GHz when needed) and 16GB of RAM give you a lot of head-room for running demanding apps.
512GB of storage is plenty of space for the key stuff you need on the go, and Apple’s storage is infamous for its speed – editing raw 4K video on here is no problem.
On previous models of MacBook Pro, the keyboard had been an issue – the feels was disliked by some, but it had also proven less reliable than you want from a pro machine. But this model uses a new keyboard type that’s more comfortable and promises to be longer-lasting.
If that price is still more than you’re looking to spend, take a look at our review of the MacBook Air (2020), which starts from just £999. It’s lighter than the MacBook Pro, but less powerful – but perhaps that suits you just fine, especially with the lower price.
We’ve also reviewed the even more powerful MacBook Pro 16-inch, which start from six cores of processing power and just goes up from there.
