Finding cheap MacBook prices can be a difficult task, but we've scoured the sales to find the best deals on every model.

That's right, we've managed to find the latest deals for every type of Apple laptop in the world. We've got you covered with deals on standard 12-inch MacBooks, 13-inch MacBook Pros, and 15-inch MacBook Pros, and if you want something that falls in between, take a look at our MacBook Air section.

We've pulled the best prices for the cheapest Macbooks from the latest sales across a wide range of Apple products via our price comparison technology, which finds the best retailers every day. Of course, we've included all the latest MacBook models, but we've also compared prices on some older MacBooks that are still readily available, as you can save a lot of money by going back to an older model while still getting a great product.

All you have to do now is determine whether you want a MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. However, we'll help you out by telling you about each of them.

If you're not quite set on a MacBook (they're rather expensive), then we've got some alternative guides for you. Check out our pick of the best laptops for other top-performing machines, or our cheap laptops for solid buys that won't break the bank, as we look for great deals all year round. But if the latest MacBook prices are what you're looking for, you'll find them all below.

Best cheap MacBook Air deals (2019)

A slight upgrade for the 2019 MacBook Air.

The 2019 MacBook Air is only slightly different from the 2018 version it's meant to replace. And, sales aside, 2019 MacBook Air prices are already a bit lower at some retailers, so it's generally worth a shot to go for this version.

The main selling point for the 2019 MacBook Air over the 2018 model is the addition of the MacBook Pro's True Tone screen, which automatically adjusts the color temperature of the screen depending on the ambient light in the room you're working in. The new third-generation Butterfly keyboard is less prone to sticking or unresponsive keys, which has been a problem for many MacBooks in recent years.

Best deals and prices on cheap MacBook Air (2018)

A classic makes a powerful comeback

The 2018 MacBook Air has the superior Retina display of the much more expensive MacBook Pro models, and its bezels are 50% thinner than the previous generation MacBook Air. The keyboard is four times more stable than before, and the Force Touch trackpad is 20% larger, which is great for multi-touch interactions. Sound hasn't been overlooked, as the speakers are now 25% louder, and a new microphone array means asking Siri for help is easier. The Air series also finally got Touch ID, which means you can log in or verify purchases with a simple touch.

You also get two Thunderbolt ports, but the older options have been removed, so you might want to consider our guides to the best USB-C adapters or the best USB-C hubs. Inside the gorgeous chassis is an upgraded 8th-generation dual-core processor, Intel UHD graphics, and SSDs now run 60 percent faster and support larger sizes than the 2017 lineup. We didn't expect an improvement in the shape of the new MacBook Air, as it was already pleasantly discrete, but it's now 10 percent smaller and a quarter of a pound lighter. Prices for the 2018 MacBook Air start higher than the 2017 edition, but thanks to our engaging price comparison technology, we'll compare the latest deals for you below. Prices for the new 2018 MacBook Air start at $1199 USD / £1199 / AU$1849 for the base versions. So everything under that is a bonus for the newest member of the cheap MacBook Air family.

Best selling prices for the cheap MacBook Air (2017)

The price of the older MacBook Air is tempting

We have to admit, we thought Apple had done it with the MacBook Air line after the Pro line became just as compact and almost as light. In 2017, Apple made its first update to the 13-inch MacBook Air since 2015. This meant you could get a much healthier 8GB of RAM instead of 4GB along with a processor upgrade to 1.8GHz (over 1.6GHz), which greatly improved multitasking. Stock of this older MacBook Air will gradually run out at retailers as the newer model is phased out, and MacBook prices may fluctuate due to its age. But while new stock is still available, it's the best choice for a cheap MacBook Air.
