15-inch MacBook Air is powerful and slim
The 15-inch MacBook Air has the same beautiful design as its smaller sibling. Besides the bigger display, the laptop packs a more powerful six-speaker sound system with two force-canceling woofers.
Internally, the base 15-inch Air uses a 10-core M2 chip, which is more powerful than what you get on the base 13-inch Air. And while the M2 SoC might not be the latest Apple silicon, it is still impressively powerful. Don’t worry about having a gazillion browser tabs open or light video editing, as the M2 MacBook Air can easily handle them.
What’s even more impressive is the battery life. Apple claims the machine can last 18 hours on a single charge, ensuring the laptop can easily make it through a day of heavy use. And when in a hurry, you can top the MacBook Air’s battery to 50% in 30 minutes — just use the correct power adapter.
$250 off makes the 15-inch MacBook Air a great buy
Amazon is taking $250 off the 256GB and 512GB variants of the 15-inch MacBook Air. Given the entry-level variant uses a single NAND chip, consider opting for the 512GB version, as it will deliver faster read/write speeds.
Thanks to this fantastic pre-Black Friday deal, you can get the 15-inch MacBook Air with 256GB storage for $1,049. And if you opt for the 512GB variant, it can be yours for $1,249, down from its $1,499 MSRP.
