Even with the latest iPad and Apple Watch releases hogging the limelight, this week's MacBook deals are proving to be equally eye-catching - not least because we're now seeing some great prices on the new MacBook Air.

Amazon's 2020 MacBook Air listing for example, is now at its cheapest price ever at just $899.99 (was $999) (opens in new tab). While you can indeed pick one up via Apple's education store page (opens in new tab) for the same price and with a free pair of AirPods, that deal's only for teachers, students and stay-home parents.

Up until now, those fairly defined restrictions have excluded quite a large number of people from picking up the best MacBook Air price we've seen so far. That, in our eyes makes this latest Amazon deal a top pick - especially since sales on this brand new MacBook Air have proven elusive so far.

If you were looking for something a little more powerful, then there's also a great price on an upgraded 2019 MacBook Air at B&H for $1,249 (was $1,699) (opens in new tab) right now. This one's definitely on the pricier end, but you're getting a 512GB SSD, Core i5 processor and 16GB of RAM here - specs that will keep up with any ultrabook right now. Those kinds of components should also ensure you many years of use too, without the need of an upgrade before too soon.

And, for those of you really feeling flush this week, check out this stunning 2019 MacBook Pro at Amazon for $2,099 (was $2,399) (opens in new tab). This one's definitely not for everyone and a bit of a bonus mention, but, since it's at it's lowest ever price right now at Amazon and features a specs sheet that pretty much makes us drool, we thought you might enjoy having a perusal as well.

If you're not eligible for the Apple Education discount, the 2020 MacBook Air is now at its lowest price ever at Amazon. While that $100 discount might not seem mind-blowing here, the 2020 model is, in our humble opinion, a much better value buy than the previous iterations. Not only are you getting one of the latest 10th gen Intel Core i3 processors here, but 8GB of RAM and a generous 256GB SSD - much better than the measly 128GB on the 2019 models.

Apple MacBook Air (2019): $1,699 (opens in new tab)

With a 512GB SSD, Core i5 processor, and 16GB of RAM, this Air may be slightly older, but it'll give any MacBook Pro a run for it's money when it comes to performance.

Alternatively, at the very premium end of the MacBook deals spectrum is this stunning Pro 16 model, which is not only getting a $300 price cut right now but features a specs sheet that will bring a tear to the eye of even the most die-hard of windows users. A 2.6Ghz Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD keep everything running smooth as can be, while the new Radeon Pro 5300M graphics card compliments the gorgeous Retina display - especially for design work.
