The latest MacBook Pro (2022) price may not be enjoying the biggest discounts just quite yet. But that's to be expected, as the all-new MacBook Pro, 13-inch model, which sports Apple's M2 chip, is still the latest of the 13-inch Pro options from Apple. 

The MacBook Pro 2022 comes with the all-new powerful M2 chip, in a portable 13-inch body. And with a retail price that's considerably lower than the more recent 14-inch MacBook Pro, it proves to be a tasty prospect. Apple is already claiming that it's a best-seller. It's certainly the cheapest MacBook Pro that Apple has to offer, starting at $1,299/£1,349.

When you consider that an extra inch (and some more power under the hood) will cost you $1,999/£1,899 for the 14-inch Pro, the new 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro seems like the most accessible Pro to date. Also, if you're just comparing the M2 to the M1 chip, Apple claims that the latest has an 18% faster CPU and 35% faster GPU performance than the M1. This is, in short, a real option for the creative professional, such as a video editor, who wants to save a bit of money.

Below you'll find more details and all the best 13-inch MacBook Pro (2022) prices. But if you want to check out the 2021 best MacBook Pro 14-inch prices, we've got a page for you, or head over to the best MacBook Pro (M2) prices, on both the 14- and 16-inch options for the latest 2023 models.

MacBook Pro 13-inch (M2, 2022)

The latest mid-size MacBook for pros.

CPU: Apple M2 (8-core) | Graphics: Integrated 8-core/10-core M2 CPU | RAM: 8GB - 24GB | Storage: 256GB - 2TB | Screen: 13.3-inches

Super fast and powerful
Great battery
Great keyboard
720p webcam
Two ports

We think that the new 13-inch MacBook Pro (M2, 2022) is going to fill a gap in the market. Sure, there are quite a few options on Pros that you can currently buy, but this portable 13-incher is the first Pro to sport the super fast M2 chip, which is boasting quite a jump up from the previously excellent M1 chip. And the headline? The entry configuration will cost you $700/£500 less than the slightly bigger 14-inch option – retailing at $1,299/£1,349.

Of course, that comparison is both Pros' entry level configuration, so the higher spec you crank the 13-inch, the closer the cost will be to the 14-inch Pro. All we know is that still sounds like a good price on the latest tech. True, you won't get a new look, as the MacBook Pro (M2, 2022) has the same design that it's sported for years now. And you're not getting a Liquid Retina, but just a Retina display, not to mention the two ports (so you'll be needing a dock for your stationary work). But bring in portability, higher RAM option to previous 13-inch MacBook Pros, and that all important M2 chip, and you've got yourself a pretty exciting Apple laptop.
