Apple is renowned for offering great discounts on its products for students and educators, but it’s being beaten at its own game by The EDU Store, which is offering the brand new M1 Pro MacBook Pro at a cheaper price for those in education than even its own student-and-teaching-staff discount can offer. And that’s before the Black Friday deals ramp up and kick in.
So long as you can prove you are in education, the 14-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Pro can be picked up for just £1,571.08 – a saving of 8%, or £137.72 under the Apple student discount standard price.

Today’s best MacBook Pro deal
14-inch MacBook Pro with Apple M1 Pro Chip: £1571.08 £1,708 Only just revealed days ago, this is a huge £137.72 saving over Apple’s student discount on the brand new MacBook, with its powerful, latest M1 Pro chipset, 14-core GPU, 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD. Note that you need to be a student or teacher in order to qualify for this deal.
It seems like Apple really took on any criticism of its more recent MacBook Pro models with the new 2021 versions. Full of ports, including a HDMI port and full-size SD card port, and dropping the battery-sapping and -used TouchBar, it seems to tick many of the boxes Apple MacBook fans have been after for years.
