Amazon currently offers the latest 13-inch Apple M1 MacBook Air 256GB for $899 shipped. Normally fetching $999, today’s offer amounts to $100 in savings, beats our Prime Day mention by $1, marks an all-time low, and is a compelling option for those who don’t need to score a new pair of AirPods in Apple’s Back to School sale. The 512GB version is now $149 off, dropping to the best price yet at $1,099.99.
Apple’s latest MacBook Air is centered around a 13-inch Retina display and backed by improved performance thanks to the M1 chip that also yields extended battery life, all without an integrated fan. That’s on top of 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, as well as a pair of Thunderbolt ports and Wi-Fi 6 support to round out the package. Get a better idea of its performance in our hands-on review, and then head below for more.
A great way to put some of your savings to work will be by expanding the I/O selection of the M1 MacBook Air with Anker’s PowerExpand+ 7-in-1 USB-C Hub at $28. This offering arrives with a bevy of ports including HDMI, USB-A, SD card readers, and even 100W USB-C power delivery. Its aluminum housing should fit right in with the rest of your Apple setup too, which is always a nice perk. There’s also a 4.7/5 star rating from over 5,600 customers, as well.
