Looking to buy a new 14-inch or 16-inch MacBook Pro? Amazon has discounted both Macs by a whopping $400 and is selling them at their lowest price ever.

Amazon is unlikely to offer the deal for long, so grab the model you want as soon as possible.

2021 MacBook Pros offer all the power you need in a portable package

Thanks to the M1 Pro/Max chips, Apple’s 2021 MacBook Pro brings about a significant jump in performance and battery life. You can edit multiple 8K videos simultaneously on them without the internal fans turning on and making a lot of noise. Apart from the performance, the 120Hz ProMotion display on the new Macs is also hard to ignore.

The MagSafe charging port further complements the solid battery life on the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro. It allows you to charge the laptops to 50% in just 30 minutes. And thanks to the built-in HDMI port and SD card, you can finally ditch the USB-C dongle for good.

The best thing is that there’s no performance difference between the 14-inch and 16-inch models. You need to decide between them based on screen size and battery life — not performance.

Save $400 on the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro

Amazon is offering a $400 discount on the 1TB model of the 14-inch MacBook Pro. The deal brings its price down to $2,099 from $2,499. Apart from additional storage, this configuration packs a 10-core CPU, 16-core GPU, and 16GB RAM. It comes bundled with a 96W USB-C power adapter that can fast charge the machine to 50% in 30 minutes.

The offer is available in silver and space gray shades, with Amazon listing August 31st as the earliest day of delivery for most U.S. pin codes.

You can score a similar $400 discount on the 16-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 Pro chip. Unlike the 14-inch model, Amazon has $400 off on both 512GB and 1TB configurations of the machine, translating into savings of as much as 15%.

If you opt for the 16-inch MacBook Pro with 1TB storage, you can get it for $2,299 before taxes and after discounts. That’s down from its $2,699 MSRP. You can use the money saved towards buying other accessories and AppleCare+ coverage for the Mac.
