Now that there are tons of options to choose from, the best MacBook Pro is different for everyone. This is especially so since Apple’s latest MacBook Pros – the 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro – are also among the most expensive we’ve seen from the range, and so not for everyone. It’s probably the reason Apple kept its 13-inch model instead of scrapping it altogether, as it did with the 15-inch.

Like New 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 technology hitting shelves in July, the still-powerful 13-inch MacBook Pro M1 is making the lineup affordable for the rest of us. Also, major online retailers like Amazon and Best Buy still sell older models that may not be as powerful as their replacements but are cheaper than ever.
