MacBook Air M1 just crashed to $799 for early Black Friday deal
Want a fast MacBook with long battery life without spending a small fortune? The MacBook Air M1 has just crashed to a price that’s too good to pass up. This is a great early Black Friday deal because it’s so cheap.
Right now, the MacBook Air M1 is on sale for just $799 at Best Buy (opens in new tab). That’s the best price we’ve seen for this laptop and $200 off.
In our MacBook Air M1 review, we loved the speedy performance offered by Apple’s M1 chip and at the time we called it a computing revolution. We also saw a superb 14 hours of battery life in our testing, so you likely won’t have to charge until the end of the day.
The 13.3-inch Retina display on the MacBook Air is fairly bright and colorful. It notched a pretty solid 356 nits in our testing, and it reproduced a good 114.3% of the sRGB spectrum. Other MacBook Air M1 highlights include a comfy Magic keyboard and an improved webcam.
There are just a couple of things we don’t like about this system, including the somewhat thick bezels and dearth of ports, since you get just two Thunderbolt ports and a headphone jack.
There is a newer MacBook Air M2 with a faster M2 chip, thinner and lighter design, brighter display and sharper 1080p webcam. But this is still an amazing deal.
