When is the best time to buy a Mac or MacBook?

For some people (including you, probably) there is no choice between PC and Mac. It’s more likely to be whether you buy a desktop Mac or a MacBook laptop.

There’s no doubt that if you buy a new Mac or MacBook it’s going to be state of the art and you’re going to love it. But it’s no secret that Macs are expensive items – even if you are buying something of quality to last you a long time.

Below we take a look at each Mac and MacBook Apple currently sells and assess whether or not now is a good time to buy them. Sometimes it’s fine to buy a Mac mid-update cycle but often we can make educated guesses as to when the next one will launch, and therefore why you might want to wait and get more for your money – provided Apple keeps its prices the same.

It depends on the product and Apple’s mood that year but you’ll usually get a MacBook Pro update once per year even if it’s just to the next generation of Intel processors. Beyond that, the company is less predictable.

Let’s take a look at each Mac and MacBook on the market and assess if you should consider buying it. Check the date at the top of the article to see when we last updated this information.
