The best MacBook to buy in 2024

Now that Apple has started outfitting its laptops with its M3 generation of chips, it’s time to take another look at which is the best MacBook to buy in 2023. That’s not always easy, though, as buying the newest MacBook isn’t always the right decision. Apple has several tiers of performance, as well as various sizes, which can further complicate the matter.

What’s more, you can also still get M1 and M2 MacBooks, some from Apple’s own website and some from third-party retailers. For instance, while the MacBook Pro has the M3 series, the MacBook Air hasn’t made the jump yet. But if you can wait for the M3 MacBook Air (which is expected early in 2024), we think you should, and we’ll explain why shortly.

So, if you’ve been considering a MacBook but don’t have a clue which model to buy, give our guide a read. It’ll help you narrow down your choices and come away happy with your purchase.
