Apple’s MacBook Pro is undoubtedly one of the best music-making laptops you can buy right now, but if you were thinking of waiting for the Black Friday music deals to land before making a purchase, we have news that might make you pull the trigger sooner - way sooner, in fact!

Today is the second day of Amazon's two-day Prime event, which sees the prices of everything from electric guitars to air fryers getting slashed left, right and centre - and of course, that includes the legendary MacBook Pro. 

Right now you can bag the MacBook Pro 14" (M2 Pro/512GB) for only $1,899, saving yourself a healthy $100. This model is one of our favourites for music production, and you can read more about why we love it so much in our 4.5-star MacBook Pro M2 review. There's also a sizable discount to be had on the MacBook Pro 16" (M2 Pro/512GB), which is down to a respectable $2,299 - saving you a cool $200! 

If you're in the UK, you can still get in on the Prime Day action, as the MacBook Pro 13 (M2) is down to only £1,199 from £1,349 and you can save a mega £169.03 off the 14-inch version of the MacBook Pro at Very.

So, if you’re looking for a snazzy new laptop that’ll comfortably run the latest DAWs and plugins (or be powerful enough to edit your latest guitar vlog or tour diary), check these latest offers below and be sure to visit our Prime Day music deals page for more amazing offers.
