Apple’s MacBooks remain a top pick for laptops among students, professionals, and everyday users. Thanks to the brand’s own chips inside the machines, they’re more powerful than ever before. While Apple’s wares typically miss out on savings events, the M1-powered MacBook Air has a great saving this Prime Day.
With Amazon US, you can score the notebook for $750, down from $999. This 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.
From Amazon UK, you can save 26%, bringing the price down from £999 to £739. This works out as a £260 saving on the machine, bringing the price from £999 to £739 for the savings event.
The M1 MacBook Air (2020) is a five-star product, as we explain in our 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! With this laptop, you get a 13.3in, 400-nit Retina display with True Tone, Apple’s M1 chipset for performance, and 18 hours of video playback from the battery. All of this comes in a machine that weighs just 1.29kg. It’s certainly the brand’s most student-friendly laptop.
