If you're looking for a Mac or MacBook, then there's not much a better time than Prime Day. Over the course of the event, you'll find some excellent deals on Apple's laptop line, with the potential for some all-time lowest prices to be had.

July is an even more fortuitous month this year because Apple has just refreshed its MacBook lineup with some significant new products. That means that there are no brand-new products close at hand, and all of the current gear is old enough to see some generous discounts. In fact, even in the run-up to Prime Day, we've seen some barnstorming savings on Apple's brand new M3 MacBook Air, M2 MacBook Air, the M3 MacBook Pro range, and the M2 Mac mini.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024?

While we don't have a specific date for Amazon Prime Day 2024, we know it will take place in July. Last year it fell on July 11-12, and the same dates the year before that, so around those dates again seems like a good guess.
