If you haven't chosen your favorite president to honor on Presidents Day, don't worry, you still have a few days. In the meantime, don't miss this tempting deal on one of Apple's best MacBooks currently on offer, the MacBook Air M2 15-inch laptop. Best Buy is offering this top-line MacBook Air with a £300 discount, down from $1,299.

We gave it 4.5 stars in our review and were raving about it, knocking it only slightly for the previous model being better value for money. Well, now, it's at a much better price and you still get all of its fantastic features. It features Apple's signature beautiful design, a high-quality Liquid Retina screen (another Apple hallmark), and a very long battery life. While the big screen might mean you need a bigger bag, it's just 0.44 inches thick and 3.3 pounds, so you get all of its might in a thin, lightweight package.

It may essentially be just a larger version of the MacBook Air 13-inch, but if that's what you want then that's what you get - and it's now reduced back down to its lowest ever price at Best Buy. Our <a href="https://www.techradar.com/reviews/apple-macbook-air-15-inch-2023-review" data-link-merchant="techradar.com"" data-link-merchant="bestbuy.com"">MacBook Air 15-inch review praised the display, performance, design, and speaker array, although we did think the jump in size hurt one of the MacBook Air's key selling points - its portability. Nevertheless, this is still an impressive laptop at a good price.

This is a solid option for someone looking to do work, particularly creative work, on the go, or if you're willing to spend more for a study laptop. If you want to see what else we'd recommend, have a look at our recommendations for best laptops of 2024
