Stop what you're doing and grab this MacBook Air M1 deal - seriously. In the US, this brilliant device (which remains one of the best laptops ever made) is now just $749.99 – the lowest price it has ever been.

The UK has also seen a big price drop, with the Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (M1, 2020) now just £739 - which is actually a further reduction compared to yesterday.

This is an incredible price for a brilliant MacBook, and could likely be the best laptop Prime Day deal we'll see this year.
