Apple's Education store has been offering some excellent MacBook Air deals recently, but if you don't qualify for the discount you can still get involved. Amazon has dropped the price of its entry-level 2020 MacBook Air by $100 this week, which means it's now matching Apple's education discount for the wider public. 

If you do qualify for Apple's discounts (if you're a current or newly accepted student, parent of a student, educator, homeschool teacher, or faculty), we'd still head to Apple, however. Amazon isn't throwing in the free AirPods available with the official deal. However, if you've been eyeing up that student discount on Apple's own MacBook Air deals you can finally save some real cash here. 

We've seen Amazon's MacBook Air deals drop to $949 in the past, but this $899 price tag is the cheapest we've seen. We don't know how long this offer will last, as Amazon tends to raise prices to match demand, so we'd get in there soon if you've been holding out. 

We're rounding up all of Apple and Amazon's MacBook Air deals just below, but you'll find all the latest MacBook Air sales from around the web right here on TechRadar as well. We're also looking to Black Friday for more offers later in the year as well.
