Amazon’s latest deal slashes nearly $400 off the price of the 15-inch MacBook Air with 512GB storage to a new low of $1,103.

While Apple’s 15-inch Air has been frequently discounted since launch, this is the best deal on the machine yet.

Save big on 15-inch MacBook Air with M2 chip

The 15-inch MacBook Air uses the same M2 chip as its 13-inch sibling. But apart from a bigger screen, it features a six-speaker sound system that delivers even better sound quality. What’s impressive is that despite packing so much power and efficiency, the 15-inch Air is the “world’s slimmest laptop.”

While the Air’s panel misses out on a ProMotion panel like the MacBook Pro, it has a peak brightness of 500 nits. You also get two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a MagSafe port for dedicated charging and a headset jack.

Thanks to the efficiency of the M2 chip, the 15-inch MacBook Air offers a claimed battery life of over 18 hours. That’s good enough to last through a day of office or college use easily. And this is the 8-core GPU and 10-core GPU variant of the M2 chip, which offers slightly better performance.

While pricing for the 15-inch Air starts from $1,199, you should get the 512GB model, which costs $1,499. And with Amazon’s current deal, you can get this variant for the same price as the 256GB model. There’s a small catch, though. The deal is only available in the space gray shade and not in other colors, which are going for slightly more.

This fantastic deal is unlikely to last for long. So if you were looking to buy the 15-inch Air for a while, grab this offer from Amazon right away.
