It’s back! The MacBook Air is down to its lowest price ever, and Amazon just beat Best Buy with one of the best early Black Friday deals we’ve seen.
For a limited time, you can get the Apple MacBook Air M1 on sale for $799 at Amazon (opens in new tab). That’s a very good $200 off and the lowest price we’ve seen for this Editor’s Choice Award laptop.
The latest MacBook Air features a 13-inch 2,560 x 1600-pixel Retina display, 8GB of RAM, Apple’s 8-core M1 CPU, and a 256GB SSD — and it’s all packed in a slim 2.8-pound chassis that’s more portable than the MacBook Pro.
In our MacBook Air M1 review, we gave this model a near-perfect score thanks to its outstanding performance, comfortable keyboard design, HD webcam, and very strong battery life. We’re talking over 14 hours of juice on a charge.
Although we weren’t fans of its relatively thick bezels and lack of additional ports, the MacBook Air 2020 is still one of the best laptops right now. In fact, we went as far as stating that “the MacBook Air M1 has the speed and battery life to beat the best PCs.”
There is a newer MacBook Air M2, which starts at $1,199. And that laptop gives you even faster performance, a brighter display and sharper 1080p webcam, plus MagSafe charging. But overall, this sale is an absolute steal.
