Remarkably, we've seen some brilliant Prime Day deals for MacBooks, and some are so good, it could tempt you to ditch your Windows laptop.

Even with hype around Windows 11 mounting, these deals may be good enough to make you switch to Apple's macOS operating system instead.

For example, the MacBook Air (M1, 2020) with a 256GB SSD, which is our pick as the best laptop in the world right now, has had a hefty price cut of £106, and is now just £893 at Amazon.

The new MacBook Air with a larger 512GB SSD is also on sale. It's more expensive (due to the larger capacity), but it actually has a bigger £219 price cut to £1,029.97. If you're looking for a new laptop, these are definitely worth considering.

If you really don't want a MacBook, and want to stick with Windows 10, then check out our pick of the best Prime Day laptop deals as well.

Oh boy, the new MacBook Pro 13-inch sure is expensive. Luckily, if you're after a premium machine that can do anything besides gaming it's worth every penny. It's also near its lowest ever price right now at Amazon UK, making it ever so slightly easier on the pocket. 

We don't often see MacBook deals on Prime Day, so to see some amazing price cuts for the two most recent MacBooks is pretty amazing, and you don't want to miss out – these deals temporarily went out of stock earlier, so they must be very popular.

While the UK has seen some great MacBook deals, the US hasn't, sadly. The best we've found is the below from Best Buy, which knocks $50 off the price of the new MacBook Air. Not a huge amount, but a price cut is a price cut.
