Apple makes some of the absolute finest computers on the market — earning several spots on our list of the best laptops and best desktops of 2023. Now three of those Macs are better than ever thanks to updates that make use of the very latest in Apple silicon — the M3, M3 Pro and M3 Max.
Two years after Apple last updated its sleek 24-inch all-in-one iMac desktop, the comes equipped with the basic M3 chip inside. There’s also an updated 14- and 16-inch inch MacBook Pro for those who like to take their Mac with them. The smaller can be equipped with the standard M3, the step-up M3 Pro or the high-end M3 Max processor, while there are only M3 Pro or Max configurations for the larger .
M3 MacBook Pro
There are two MacBooks included in Apple’s M3 lineup. The smaller 14-inch model starts at $1,599, while the larger 16-inch model jumps up to $2,499. Both models feature a stunning Liquid Retina XDR display, as well as a built-in HDMI port and SD card reader, making them seriously versatile machines for both creatives and professionals. They’re both available direct from Apple, as well as Amazon, Best Buy and B&H Photo right now. Deals are likely to be hard to come by initially, however.
It’s also worth noting that Apple has a trade-in program where you knock hundreds off the starting price in exchange for your old computer, and you’ll get 3% cash back when you make the purchase using your Apple card. For purchases this big, that ends up being a decent chunk of change.
M3 24-inch iMac
Apple hasn’t updated its all-in-one iMac desktop since 2021, so the new M3 model is a pretty serious upgrade. It’s only available with the basic M3 chip, but features a stunning 24-inch 4.5K Retina display. And all configurations come with the wireless Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse, so you’ve got everything you need to get it set up right away.
Like the new M3 MacBook Pro laptops, this new desktop is available for order at Apple, Amazon, Best Buy and B&H Photo right now. Apple is also offering discounts with an eligible trade-in, and you’ll get 3% cash back when you make the purchase using your Apple Card.
These are the latest and greatest Macs that Apple has to offer, but we’re sure to see some big discounts on previous-gen models. You can check out our roundup of the best MacBook deals for serious savings on Apple laptops.
