Apple’s M1 MacBook Air is one of the best values you can get in a laptop at its regular price, but today it’s a downright steal. Amazon is selling the 512GB MacBook Air for $1,100, good for $150 off the MSRP, and the best price we’ve ever seen. Depending on which color option you choose, you might not see the full discount reflected on the listing, but the correct price will show at checkout.
The MacBook Air has the same M1 chip as the 13-inch MacBook Pro and 24-inch iMac, so you’re getting tons pf power and performance in a small package. The smallest of Apple’s laptops, it’s got a 13-inch retina display, Magic Keyboard, 512GB hard drive, whisper-quiet fanless operation, and a pair of Thunderbolt ports. Since this is the step-up model, you’re getting the full8-core GPU too, so the only things you’re giving up compared to the $1,499 MacBook Pro is the Touch Bar and a fan.
You’re going to be hard-pressed to find a better value in a laptop for $1,100, so go grab one before the price shoots back up.
