M1 MacBook Air is light yet powerful

Thanks to the M1 chip, the MacBook Air can easily handle moderate to heavy workloads. It will be more than enough for your daily web browsing, emails, and other activities. You can also use it for some light photo and video editing work without issues.

In our M1 MacBook Air review, we opened over 650 Safari tabs on the 2020 MacBook Air without any issues. What’s impressive is that, unlike most laptops, the M1 MacBook Air achieves all this without active cooling. It has no fan, which means it stays silent at all times — no matter how hard you push it.

Despite its slim and light chassis, the M1 MacBook Air offers up to 18 hours of battery life. It features a 13.3-inch Retina display, two Thunderbolt 4/USB 4 ports, and a Magic Keyboard with Touch ID. The machine is limited to just one external monitor, which could be a bummer for some.

Get the M1 MacBook Air for just $929

While the MacBook Air is available in three different shades, the $70 discount is only applicable for the silver color.

The 512GB model is available for $1,199 in space gray and silver shade — down from its usual price of $1,249. Do note that the 512GB storage variant features an 8-core GPU, while the base 256GB model comes with a 7-core GPU. The difference is not much, but if you want that wee bit of extra performance, you should spring for the higher storage model.

The M1 MacBook Air has been discounted to prices lower than this before. However, this is still a decent deal if you are in the market for new MacBook.
