In 2020, Apple upgraded the MacBook Air with an improved keyboard and twice the storage, and restored it to the sacred $ 1,000 price point. Amazon is currently selling it for $ 150 – the all-time low price for this model, and probably the lowest price we’ll see during the prime day period. (You’ll see the full sale price at checkout.) Note that we expect new Macs with iPad-style “Apple Silicon” chips, possibly before the end of the year. Read our MacBook Air review.
