The Apple MacBook Air is Apple’s entry-level MacBook. It’s a great option if you need a basic, day-to-day laptop. Boasting a 13.3-inch Retina display screen, and weighing 2.8 pounds, it’s the lightest and most portable MacBook. It retains a premium feel, thanks to an aluminum body (available in silver or space gray), and backlit keyboard. It’s powered by Apple’s snappy M1 chip, so it will see you through basic photo editing, and light video editing. Its battery lasts up to 18 hours.
Amazon has a deal right now on the Apple MacBook Air with 256GB of storage. 
Apple MacBook Air (Apple M1, 8 GB RAM, 256GB SSD), $989 (regularly $1,000)
Are you a graphic designer? Do you work in a visual medium? Then the MacBook Air model with 512GB of storage, not to mention an 8-core CPU, may be for you. This version of the laptop is better suited than the 256GB model for graphics-intensive tasks, such as photo editing and graphic design. That said, if you’re willing to spend more than $1,000 on a MacBook Air, then know you’ll likely be better off upgrading to the often-identically priced, 13-inch MacBook Pro.
Apple MacBook Air (Apple M1, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD), $1,199 (reduced from $1,249)
The 512GB Apple MacBook Air is even less at Walmart.
Apple MacBook Air (Apple M1, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD), $1,148 (reduced from $1,249)
A step up from the MacBook Air, the slightly weightier (3.0 pound) 13-inch MacBook Pro boasts a powerful active cooling system, which helps keep the 8-core CPU running fast. It delivers up to 20 hours of battery life on a single charge, and features a Retina display that’s brighter than the MacBook Air. The MacBook Pro also features a customizable Apple Touch Bar. 
Like the MacBook Air, the MacBook Pro offers 256GB and 512GB models. We found a deal on Amazon on the 512GB version. 
13″ Apple MacBook Pro (Apple M1 Chip, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD), $1,399 (regularly $1,499)
The 14-inch MacBook Pro is the latest MacBook Pro. This fifth-generation machine is where the line starts to cements its pro status. It’s super-fast, and offers oodles of storage. We found an Amazon deal on the 14-inch Apple MacBook Pro with a 10‑core CPU, and boasting 16GB of memory and a whopping 1TB of storage. It also offers a variety of ports that creative professionals rely on (including an SDXC card slot), and has a 3024 x 1964 Liquid Retina XDR display. 
14″ Apple MacBook Pro (Apple M1 Pro, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD), $1,548 (regularly $2,499 at Apple)
Is the 14-inch MacBook Pro not powerful, or big enough for you? Then try its sibling, the 16-inch MacBook Pro. On Amazon, you can get a deal on the 16-inch MacBook Pro with a 10-core CPU, as well as 16GB of unified memory, and 512GB of storage. All of that is more than enough for you to be able to edit 8K videos on the machine. You also get four Thunderbolt ports, an HDMI port and a SDXC card slot.
With its size and more powerful guts, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is aimed at professionals who need a seriously powerful laptop for graphics-intensive applications, such as video-rendering and design. Just keep in mind, this is a machine that comes with a professional-level price tag.
16-inch Apple MacBook Pro (Apple M1 Pro, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD), $2,416 (regularly $2,499 from Apple)
