Hoping to find a good Black Friday MacBook deal? Then make sure you've done some research first. A little preparation beforehand can ensure you know a real MacBook deal when you spot one and help you decide when the price is right.

While there are still three weeks until Black Friday itself, some retailers have already started their sales. That means that in some cases, it might be better to buy now rather than to wait until later in the month. That's especially true if you want the new 2023 M2 MacBook Air – now at a record low price of $1,049.99 at Amazon.
