Last month's Prime Day might be over, but luckily for us, some amazing prices are still lingering (shhh, don't tell Amazon) including the lowest-ever price on the 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 chip, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage. The initial retail price of $1,299 has now dropped down to just $1,049 at Amazon – a $250 saving.

The most portable Pro laptop from Apple, the MacBook Pro 13-inch (M2, 2022) offers enhanced performance in a smaller package thanks to the M2 chip, and we loved the long-lasting battery life when we reviewed it. A fantastic laptop for creative professionals who don't mind a smaller screen, this price is the lowest we've seen.

Review consensus: We tested the MacBook Pro 13-inch (M2, 2022) in July last year, and found that the performance was excellent, but the design needed a big update with only two Thunderbolt ports and a redundant touch bar. If you value performance over aesthetics, we think you'll love this MacBook.
