If you want to buy a Mac Studio, and get the best deal possible, you’ve come to the right place. We’re looking at where you can buy the Mac Studio at the best price.
The main problem is actually finding the Mac Studio in stock, especially the M1 Ultra version, which has a three to four week wait if you buy from Apple! Plus not all the usual resellers are stocking the Mac Studio.
You may also want to consider when Apple will add the next generation of M2 Max and M2 Ultra chips to a new Mac Studio.

What you need to know
In March 2022 Apple introduced its most powerful Mac yet – yes the Mac Studio is even more powerful than the Mac Pro right now (although you can expect a much more powerful Mac Pro in the near future). Just over a year on with the arrival of the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips we are hoping to see a new Mac Studio, but there may be a long wait.
The Mac Studio can be configured with a M1 Max chip, as previously seen in the 14in and 16in MacBook Pro (which now have M2 Pro and M2 Max chips), or you can choose an M1 Ultra, which is essentially two M1 Max chips. The M1 Ultra brings 20 CPU cores and up to 64 GPU cores. It is also able to support 128GB RAM. Read our Mac Studio review. Also read about how the M2 Pro Mac mini compares to the Mac Studio.
The Mac Studio starts at $1,999/£1,999 for the M1 Max model. The Mac Studio with M1 Ultra starts at $3,999/£3,999. There are also various build to order options.
The most obvious thing missing from the Mac Studio is a display, but if you want to buy Apple’s Studio Display we have a separate article explaining where you can buy one and get the best deal. Read our Apple’s Studio Display review.
Where to buy a Mac Studio
The most obvious place to buy a Mac Studio is from Apple US or Apple UK, but there are lots of other options.
One benefit of buying from Apple is you could trade in your old Mac and get money off. We have an article explaining How to get money off with Apple’s trade-in program.
We recommend the following resellers in the U.S. and U.K.:
Apple has a number of Apple Premium Resellers in the UK who stock Macs and offer other services:
