Need raw power? This late-2020 Apple MacBook Pro (the one with the TouchBar and the new M1 chip) is now on sale for $1,225—$74 off—at Amazon. It has a 13.3-inch LED Retina backlit display with a QHD+ resolution. It’s armed with a Quad-Core Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB of memory and a whopping 256TB of on-board storage. This MacBook Pro also comes with two USB-C ports, a headphone jack, and a large Force Touch trackpad. This machine is a beast and ideal for professionals and creatives, alike.

“I primarily use my MacBook Pro for music production and performance. As such, Logic Pro and myriad amp models and plugins are constantly in use on my machine,” shared a savvy Amazon shopper. “The M1 chip blows the Intel chips out of the water in terms of loading speed, battery life and ability to handle large Logic projects with dozens of tracks, plugins, software instruments and live recordings. Battery life has also seen a significant improvement over my 2020 Intel machine. I am not quite getting double the battery life, but it's not far off. This isn't a huge deal for me, as my machine is typically stationary and a charging cable is readily available, but for someone who needs the portability, the difference is substantial.”
