New MacBook Pro release: There’s a more affordable way to own this new laptop

Apple has launched its 2021 MacBook Pro range today, which is – simply put – the most powerful MacBook Pro ever released. The MacBook Pro 2021 range is powered by the ‘beastly’ M1 Pro or M1 Max chip, boasts a stunning Liquid Retina XDR display with a notch, improved camera, battery and audio plus all the ports you’ll ever need. But this hugely impressive spec sheet has a price to match, with prices for the 14inch MacBook Pro starting from £1,899, while prices for the 16inch model begin from £2,399.

If you’re interested in the 2021 MacBook Pro range, but find the price tag a bit daunting to pay off in one go, then John Lewis has some great news for you.

The iconic high street retailer is letting shoppers purchase any model in the MacBook Pro range with 24 month interest-free payments.

That means the entry-level 2021 MacBook Pro can be purchased for £79.12 per month, with no deposit required.

If you’re looking to purchase the most expensive 2021 MacBook Pro (the £3,299 model) then that will set you back £137.45 for 24 months.

If you’d like to purchase the Apple MacBook Pro with monthly payments then simply choose interest-free credit at checkout on the John Lewis website.


All MacBook Pro devices are available in either silver or space grey colour schemes.

A two-year guarantee is included with all MacBook Pro devices at John Lewis and you can pay £80 to protect your shiny new Apple laptop against accidental damage with John Lewis’s Protect Plus programme.

While there are plenty of improvements under the hood, at first glance Apple fans may get a distinct sense of deja vu when looking at the 2021 MacBook Pro laptops.

That’s because these latest macOS devices look similar to the chunky pre-Touch Bar models.

And that’s fitting as the new MacBook Pro laptops have also ditched this context sensitive touch panel.

Describing what makes the latest MacBooks so special, the John Lewis website says: “It’s a beast. Equipped with the blazing-fast M1 Pro chip, for work or play, Apple’s 2021 MacBook Pro promises groundbreaking performance and amazing battery life. The 120Hz ProMotion HDR display makes everything feel super fluid and responsive on-screen, while the six-speaker sound system fills the room with its punchy bass. All this, along with versatile connectivity options and more pixels than ever before. ‘Pro’ doesn’t even come close to grasping how much power this notebook puts in your hands.”
