This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2019, your source for the season’s best gifts and deals, hand-picked by the experts at CNET.

In the wake of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the best of the MacBook deals have now evaporated. But there are still some decent discounts out there. At the moment, B&H Photo has the best price on the MacBook Air — with both the 128GB and 256GB models selling for $200 off.

You can also still pick up the new 16-inch MacBook Pro for $2,299. That’s a $100 discount on a great laptop that came out less than 30 days ago. 

And you can save $150 on the newest 13-inch MacBook Pro, released in July, at both Amazon and B&H Photo.

The 2018 MacBook Air deals appear to be gone for now, with that particular model out of stock in most stores. That noted, we continue to see what looks like a compelling deal on the previous MacBook Air model for $750. But it’s actually the previous, previous model — from 2017. Don’t buy it. Spend $150 more on the most recent one from July

Apple is still throwing in a free year of its forthcoming Apple TV Plus service with every purchase of a MacBook Air, regardless of where you buy it. And note that this deal also extends to any new or refurbished iPhoneiPadApple TVMac or iPod Touch.
