If you need a new laptop, this is the deal you should not miss. At $749.99, the M1 MacBook Air provides one of the cheapest ways to get into Apple’s ecosystem.

2020 MacBook Air is great for everyday use

The M1 MacBook Air was among the first Macs in Apple’s roster to switch to Apple silicon. Updated in 2020, the machine can still hold its own thanks to the excellent power and efficiency of Apple’s M1 chip. Apple used that same processor inside the iPad Pro, Mac mini, iPad Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro. This highlights the versatility of the chip and the power it packs.

As if the performance was not enough, the 2020 MacBook Air’s long-lasting battery is another highlight. With 18 hours of battery life, you can use the machine for all your college and office work without worrying about running out of juice.

Don’t miss this amazing deal on the M1 MacBook Air

The 2020 MacBook Air retails for $999 before taxes. Even that’s a great price for a powerful machine with a dated (but iconic) design. Once you factor in the 25% discount from Amazon, though, the M1 Air becomes a no-brainer. You are not going to get a better laptop than the Air for just $749.99.

This deal is available on all three colors of the machine, so you can have your pick of silver, space gray or gold.

The M2 MacBook Air is better than the 2020 MacBook Air in every aspect, so if you have the money, going for the newer model makes a lot more sense. If not, don’t worry — the M1 Air won’t disappoint you.

Amazon is likely to run out of stock of the M1 MacBook Air at this discounted price sooner than later. So, make sure to pull the trigger on this deal as soon as possible.
