Amazon is offering a fantastic deal on the 13-inch MacBook Air ahead of both 4th of July and Amazon Prime Day, an excellent choice for anyone looking for a fast and efficient productivity machine.

Apple's 2020 MacBook Air is on sale for $799 (was $999) at Amazon, which is the lowest price we've ever seen and an amazing value. For the cost, you can get a high-quality laptop for way below $1,000, which is a steal considering that, according to our Apple MacBook Air M1 review, this is one of the best laptops you could possibly find. And currently, two of the three colors — Gold and Space Gray — are in stock. Unfortunately, Silver, while being sold at a discount of $849, is still higher than the lowest price.

This is easily the best laptop out there, especially if you're looking for a machine at a budget price. And thanks to the still very powerful and relevant M1 chip powering it, you can use it for productivity tasks, creative projects, and even low to mid-range games.

If you're looking for an affordable MacBook, Amazon has slashed the price of the 2020 MacBook Air down to $799 — the lowest price we've ever seen. The powerful 13-inch laptop delivers excellent performance thanks to Apple's M1 Chip and includes an ultra-thin design and an impressive battery life.

The Apple MacBook Air M1 has an impressive chip powering it, especially for the currently discounted price. This excellent deal makes it an absolute steal, so if you're looking for something that can handle a heavy workload, creative projects, streaming movies, and more, then take advantage of this sale.

The standout feature of the newer MacBook Air models is Apple's own silicon powering them, which provides the Apple machines with high-class performance without breaking the bank. It allows these machines to compete and even surpass many of the best Windows laptops in its price range.

The Apple M1 MacBook Air model is much cheaper, though, and nearly as powerful as the newer M2 MacBook Air, so it's still the best deal going. So, if you've been looking for an amazing discount for an equally great Apple laptop with solid specs, take advantage of this deal now.
