Apple MacBook Air Black Friday deals

We’re well into the 2022 Black Friday shopping event and it’s your chance to save serious money before the holidays – especially if you’re after a new MacBook! Apple’s wares have traditionally been immune to the annual deals bonanza, but we have seen some discounts over the last couple of years.

Apple’s ultra-portable laptop, the MacBook Air, is also privvy to a great Cyber Monday discount today! Act fast and you can save 17% on the MacBook Air with M1 at Amazon US, where a relatively affordable (in laptop terms) $998 gets you a 13-inch Air with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. You get to pick from three slick colour options, too: Space Gray, Gold or Silver.

This is another 5-star product, as we explain in our MacBook Air with M1 review, announcing that “the MacBook Air (M1) arguably becomes the best all-round work laptop for under a grand” with this upgrade. Of course, there’s now an M2 version, but the M1 is almost as good!

You’re also able to snag a generous $150 off an M1 MacBook Pro. The 2020 laptop is currently down to $1194 for a 13-inch model in Space Gray with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD. Its RRP is $1,299 – a pretty tidy saving of 12%.

We gave it a perfect 5/5 star score in our MacBook Pro M1 (2020) review, reserving particular praise for Apple’s new in-house M1 chip, which was a “massive step forwards” for the device.

For even more great Apple savings, there are some great AirPods Pro deals – or just head over to browse Amazon’s Black Friday Week deals in full and see what else is out there today.
