Right now, if you're on the market for the MacBook Air 2020, you can pick it up for much less with this Prime Day deal, making Apple's most affordable laptop even more so. 

Right now, you can pick up the MacBook Air 2020 for $150 off, making it just $849. Now, keep in mind, you're not getting a kitted-out version of the laptop or anything – this is still just the base configuration with an Intel Core i3 CPU, 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM.

Important: the full price drop isn't reflected until Prime Day users have the MacBook 2020 in their cart. Once it's in the cart, Amazon will apply another $100 discount, making the $949 price drop all the way down to $849 – a total of $150 off.

The 512GB MacBook Air is also $150 off, giving you a 512GB SDD and 10th-gen Intel Core i5 processor. In this case, it's $100 on Amazon initially and another $49.01 at checkout. Sadly, the Gold version of the 512GB MacBook Air is currently out of stock, but Silver and Space Gray remain.

The MacBook Air comes in the same overall design as its predecessor. However, it brings in a slew of welcome features including that incredible Magic Keyboard, more storage space and Intel's faster 10th-generation processors. Better yet, it came at a more reasonable price of entry at $999 during its launch.

For Amazon Prime Day, the MacBook Air just dropped its price again, making it among the hottest products on Amazon right now. Check out these MacBook Air deals below so you can take advantage. You better hurry though as these are selling like hotcakes.
