This remains the lowest price that the MacBook Air M1 has ever been, and its stuck around even after Prime Day has finished. This is one of the best deals we've seen all year on any Apple device, and is well worth the pickup, even if you've just been cursorily looking at grabbing a new MacBook Air.

This massive $250 saving makes the MacBook Air M1 just $750, a very tasty reduction from its $1000 price tag, and one of Apple's most affordable devices you can buy on Amazon right now.

The MacBook Air M1 remains one of the cheapest ways to get a Mac on your desk, and this deal makes it even more affordable. We don't know how long this deal will last, but it's likely that stock will fly off the shelves, so it's best to act fast.

The MacBook Air M1 is still a very powerful laptop, even if it's coming up on its third birthday. The M1 chip at its core is a potent portable processor and powers the laptop along perfectly for light workloads and web browsing. For students, there really is nothing better.

This deal has lasted over Prime Day, and now it's emerged on the other side unscathed – somehow. Not that we're going to complain, as this isn't just a good price for a MacBook it's a great price for a laptop period. When stacked up against similarly specced Windows machines, this is an absolute steal.

Just make sure that you grab one of the best MacBook Air cases to make sure that your new MacBook is kept safe from bumps, scrapes, and scratches. $250 off may make it extra affordable, but you'll still want to avoid damage.
