When it comes to power, performance, efficiency, and battery life in a laptop, there is but one undisputed GOAT, the M1 MacBook Air, first debuted by Apple in 2020 and still crushing the competition. Pound for pound, this laptop destroys anything at an equivalent price running Windows, and it's all because of the M1 chip. The first MacBook Air to feature Apple silicon benefits from immense efficiency and performance. It's 3.5x faster than the old Intel equivalent, and it doesn't even have a fan!
Being so close to Cyber Monday, it might be tempting to wait to see if the price drops any more - we'd advise against this. This has already gone out of stock a couple of times over the weekend, and only just came back online. Check out these other Cyber Monday MacBook deals too.

Is it the newest MacBook Air? No. Does it still hold up? Absolutely. The M1 chip is still a beast, and the MacBook Air uses it to its full capacity, running deceptively powerful apps in a very svelte and slim chassis. While the design may not be the most recent, it is still stunning. and with $200 off at the moment, this is the MacBook Air deal that you've been waiting for.

The MacBook Air M1 may have been around the block for a little while, but with its powerful M1 chip and super thin aluminum frame, the MacBook Air M1 is still to die for. One of the best MacBooks, it manages to balance performance and portability like little else - although it could still do with maybe double the memory.
