Deal: The M1 MacBook Air is on sale for just US$849 on Amazon
Amazon is offering Apple's latest MacBook Air for US$849 for its 256GB configuration today, which is down US$149 from the US$999 MSRP. The price appears after an automatic coupon is applied at check out, and it applies to all colors including the Space Gray, silver and gold color. The laptop was released last year and features the beastly Apple M1 SoC and a formidable performance for a laptop in this category.
In our review, the 2020 Apple MacBook Air has received a high rating of 91% for its impressive fan less thermals, great build quality and good speakers. In terms of performance, we found that the ARM-based Apple M1 processor absolutely ridicules its Intel and AMD counterparts, which is particularly evident when executing native apps on the MacBook.
Amazon also has the 512GB configuration of the MacBook Air on sale for US$1,099 instead of the usual US$1,249. Users who need a lot of storage on their device are certainly better off with the 512GB model. We do not expect Apple to announce the successor to this laptop at tomorrow's California streaming event, which will instead focus on the iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7.
