Shopping for a good Amazon laptop deal ahead of back-to-school season? Look no further than the 2020 MacBook Air. Lightweight, powerful and seriously sleek with its Retina display and M1 chip, this Reviewed-approved MacBook is more affordable than ever right now at Amazon with a $100 discount. Experience power and performance in an ultra-slim frame that aced our testing when it first launched and still does a great job.
There’s a lot to love in a MacBook Air from its exceptionally crisp Retina display with gorgeous wide-gamut color, to super low latency, to an inherently user-friendly design interface. Apple’s M1 chip became famous at its launch, and even today, when the M2 and M2-Pro chips have become standard in more recent generations, the M1 still makes for silky smooth computing with enough power for all but pro users. We stand by both M1 and M2 chips and think either will serve most users well.
