M1 MacBook Air is fast and power-efficient

Apple announced the M2 MacBook Air at WWDC22. But it continues to sell the M1 MacBook Air as its successor is $200 more expensive than it. And despite the 2020 MacBook Air’s aging design, it has enough grunt to handle your daily workloads. The M1 chip inside the machine is both fast and power-efficient. In Cult of Mac’s M1 MacBook Air review, we opened over 650 Safari tabs on the machine without any performance hiccups.

Apart from Apple’s excellent M1 chip, the 2020 MacBook Air has 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. You get two Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports for connecting an external display and other accessories.

It won’t struggle to last a day of regular use, including browsing the internet, taking notes, and doing light photo/video editing. Apple claims the M1 Air can provide 18 hours of battery life.

Save $149.01 on the M1 MacBook Air

The M1 MacBook Air starts from $999 for the entry-level variant. It is currently the cheapest MacBook in Apple’s lineup. But if that’s still stretching your budget, you should take advantage of Amazon’s latest deal. It slashes the machine’s price from $999 to $849.99 — a sweet $149.01 off. The additional $100 discount is automatically applied at checkout if you have an eligible account.

You can get the 2020 MacBook Air in either gold or silver at the reduced price. The deal is not applicable for the space gray color. Stocks are running slow, and Amazon lists the M1 Air for delivery in the first week of October. So, make sure to take advantage of the deal before supplies run out.
