Amazon joins Black Friday M3 MacBook Pro price war, driving prices down to $1,449

After sitting on the sidelines for the past week, Amazon has joined retailers like B&H and Adorama in discounting Apple's new M3 MacBook Pro models during its early Black Friday sale.

Save $150 on the M3 14-inch MacBook Pro, bringing the price of the standard model with 8GB of memory and 512GB storage down to $1,449. Or upgrade to 1TB of storage for $200 more. The M3 models come in your choice of Space Gray or Silver, whereas the M3 Pro and M3 Max configurations sport the new Space Black finish, with Silver also an option.

Although Amazon has matched Adorama in price on the systems themselves, Adorama is exclusively offering AppleInsider readers discounts of up to $250 off on every configuration with promo code APINSIDER. The coupon also takes $50 to $80 off optional AppleCare for the new laptops. You can tack the plan to the system in your Adorama shopping cart.

Details on how to activate the MacBook Pro coupon can be found below. Or you can jump over to our Mac Price Guides to find the best Apple Black Friday discounts on every set of specs.
