Cheap MacBook Deals: Which MacBook should you get?

The MacBook is available in three models – the MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro – all of which come in different sizes.

The classic MacBook is best for people who are always on the go. The 12-inch MacBook weighs a modest  0.92kg, and at 1.31cm thick is the smallest and most portable option available. Its processor isn’t as powerful as the MacBook Pro’s, but it’ll have no problem handling day-to-day tasks.

The 13-inch MacBook Air is best for people on a budget. The design hasn’t been updated for a few years, so it’s looking slightly dated, but it’s still the cheapest of the bunch and still has the best battery life.

If you need a lot of processing power then you should opt for the MacBook Pro. It’s more expensive than other MacBooks, but the Pro’s definitely worth the money if you use your laptop for for video or music editing.

The latest version of the MacBook Pro comes in 13- or 15-inch variants both of which come with Touch Bar and Touch ID options. The new version is also almost as light as the Macbook Air at 1.37kg.
