Latest Apple MacBook Air M1 it has fallen behind at the all-time low price today. All Air M1 color options are now $ 900 thanks to an additional $ 50 coupon that reduces its retail price from $ 950 to $ 900. We saw this discount last time this month, so it’s time to get your laptop slim and read if you’ve missed the previous sale.
We think the MacBook Air M1 is the Apple laptop to get right away if you’re on the market for a new one. We gave it a go score of 94 especially since Apple didn’t mess with what we loved over the previous model – it just improved the interior so much that the Air M1 feels like a new machine. The model on sale has 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of memory and the company’s new M1 chipset and the latter makes the biggest difference in the performance of this laptop. We were impressed by its fiery fast speeds, including the loading speed of native apps like Safari. While 8GB of RAM may not seem enough, the M1 chip can actually do a lot more with it than previous processors.
We also still like the simple but consistent design of the Air – the Retina display is beautiful, the keyboard and trackpad are a breeze to use and its battery lasted more than 16 hours with a single charge in our tests. While we’re not enthusiastic about the limited selection of ports (the laptop only has two USB-C ports), we love the fact that Apple hasn’t put a fan in the MacBook Air M1. This means you get a quieter car in general, and in our experience, the integrated heatsink and passive cooling system are enough to prevent the Air from becoming too hot.
