Though the 2020 MacBook Air M1 has since been replaced by 2022’s MacBook Air M2, it’s still one of the best MacBooks you can buy today and doesn’t require that you spend $1,200 or more to get one. In fact, right now you can score one at a $199 discount at Amazon, dropping its price to just $800. There’s no clear-cut expiration on this deal, but discounts on Apple devices rarely last for long and this is just a dollar shy of this machine’s lowest-ever price. We’d recommend getting your order in sooner rather than later if you’re hoping to grab one at this price.
