Apple’s M3 Pro MacBook Pros are available with up to $200 off in Amazon’s pre-Black Friday deal. This drops Apple’s latest laptops down to their lowest price within days of launch.

M3 Pro chip is faster and more efficient

The late 2023 MacBook Pros feature Apple’s 3nm-based M3 chips. They are notably faster than their predecessors. The M3 Pro sits right in the middle of the M3 chip family, featuring 37 billion transistors. You can configure the chip with up to 12-core CPU, 18-core GPU and 36GB of unified memory.

Interestingly, while the M3 Pro ships with 12 CPU cores, the core configuration has changed compared to its predecessor. It comes with six high-performance cores and six efficiency cores. For comparison, the M2 Pro shipped with eight performance cores. Despite that, the M3 Pro delivers better performance, though the jump might not be that big in some cases. On a positive note, the M3 Pro is notably more efficient, allowing the late 2023 MacBook Pros to last longer.

Another highlight of the M3 Pro-powered MacBook Pros is that you can get them in a stealthy new space black shade.

Save up to $200 on M3 Pro MacBook Pros

Amazon’s pre-Black Friday deal discounts the M3 Pro MacBook Pros by up to $200. The 14-inch model with 512GB or 1TB space is available with $150 off, while you can save $200 on the 16-inch MacBook Pro. This is a great deal, especially since these machines hit the market just a few weeks ago. What makes this offer better is that even Apple is not providing any discounts on its new MacBooks as a part of its Black Friday shopping event.
