Apple’s M1 MacBook Air Returns to the Low Price of $799

The M1 MacBook Air launched at $999 back in 2020, and it is still a powerful machine for your everyday use. A better excuse for customers to get one of these models is if it was offered at a lower price, and well, today is your lucky day because the listing on Amazon shows a $200 discount, bringing that price down to $799. For that price cut, you get Apple’s M1 chip, a powerful and highly power-efficient custom silicon that enables the portable to tout ‘over the top’ battery life.

Apple claims this model can last up to 18 hours on a single charge, which is twice the run time of most portable Windows 11 notebooks. The M1 chip features an 8-core CPU and 7-core GPU, making it more than a capable machine for both work and play. The MacBook Air itself features an exceptional build, with carefully tuned hinges and a solid metal construction that will last you for years. Its 13.3-inch display is also vibrant also resonates a crisp resolution, which is ideal when you want to binge-watch content for hours.

There is also 8GB of unified RAM and 256GB of PCIe NVMe storage. Since the M1 MacBook Air cannot be upgraded, you will have to use what you pay for right now. For connectivity, there are two Thunderbolt ports, allowing you to attach the M1 MacBook Air to an external monitor for an extended workspace experience or hook up multiple accessories such as a mouse or keyboard. You also get a layer of security thanks to the Touch ID button present on the keyboard. The $200 discount applies to all finishes of the MacBook Air, which includes Gold, Silver, and Space Gray.

You can choose to opt for AppleCare+ if you have a feeling that something bad might happen to the machine in the near future, though you will be charged extra. If an M1 MacBook Air does not suit your requirements and you think you deserve a change in a MacBook’s aesthetics with slightly better hardware, we will recommend that you go for the next best thing, the M2 MacBook Air, which is available on Amazon for $1,166.
