We're hardly into January, but Amazon has already got what could be the best laptop deal of 2024 with the brilliant MacBook Air (M1 edition) currently just $749.99 – the lowest price I've ever seen (refurbished models have gone for less, however).

This is the kind of deal I'd expect to see around Black Friday, so either someone at Amazon doesn't realize that the shopping event ended over a month ago, or the giant retailer is laying the groundwork for a year of serious price cuts.

Over in the UK, Amazon has also dropped the price of the MacBook Air M1 to £807.99 – a decent 19% off its usual £999 price tag.

While this model of the MacBook Air initially launched at the end of 2020, it's still an excellent laptop for day-to-day work, and for students, especially at this all-time low price. This is thanks to the M1 chip, which remains an excellent performer, even if it's since been succeeded by the M2, and M3 chips (although the latter hasn't turned up in a MacBook Air... yet).

Great performance, excellent build quality, and a thin and light design make the M1 MacBook Air a brilliant buy at any time – but at this even lower price, this is a deal you really should not miss out on.
