We might be done with all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness, but Amazon is still capable of throwing a deal or two out there. Right now you can get your eager hands on a brand new Apple silicon MacBook Air with the upgraded 512GB of storage for the great price of just $1,049.99.
While sometimes we see these deals used to ship out some of the less popular colors, that very much isn't the case in this instance. Buyers can choose from Gold, Space Gray, and Silver and you should absolutely choose the middle one. There's something about Space Gray that just screams quality, right?
Inside, this MacBook Air comes with a super-speedy M1 chip as well as 8GB of unified memory. A 13.3-inch Retina display takes care of pixels, while Apple silicon ensures a battery life of up to 18 hours. If you're working longer than that, you need more than a battery pack!
The MacBook Air of your dreams is now a bargain, too.
Apple's latest entry-level MacBook Air, powered by M1, is discounted by $199 right now — and you even get to choose from all three colors; Silver, Space Gray, and Gold. This upgraded model packs a 512GB SSD and the same gorgeous form factor we're accustomed to from Apple's MacBook Air lineup.
Amazon isn't saying how long this deal is going to hang around but it's unlikely to be for too long. Ordering now will mean delivery takes place after Christmas however, so keep that in mind if you were planning on treating someone special.
Apple's MacBook Air is perhaps the best Mac for most people right now and this price, with this configuration, isn't to be ignored.
