Apple’s M1 MacBook Air has continued to be one of the best laptops for everyday computing without fuss, so it’s always a pleasure to see it on sale. That goes double when it hits the all-time low of $750 we saw during Black Friday this year, which it’s just done again with this deal at Amazon.
Apple’s MacBook Air M1, our favorite budget laptop, is back at its Black Friday price today. This deal makes one of the best everyday laptops that much better — just be sure to clip the on-page coupon to snag the full savings.
Unless you need a supremely powerful laptop to run demanding applications, the M1 MacBook Air is probably just the laptop for you. It’s our budget recommendation for anyone shopping for a MacBook, thanks to its quality design, excellent battery life and surprising performance. What was already a good price at $1,000 is only made better with this 25% discount.
Despite weighing just 2.8 pounds, qualifying it as an ultra-portable, the M1 MacBook Air still manages to offer enough performance that users tackling everyday computing needs are unlikely to run into a hitch. Better still, the M1 chip is so efficient, you won’t be running for a power outlet every couple hours.
Normally you’d expect some more compromises on a budget machine, like a plastic chassis or a disappointing display, but this MacBook Air has a sleek aluminum construction and a sharp display. Until we start seeing the M2 MacBook Air at this price, this kind of deal is going to be hard to overlook.
