Apple’s most popular laptop is the MacBook Air, and the latest model with its M2 processor is the laptop most people will ever need. So if you can get a deal, grab it, and we found a deal at Amazon, where it’s the Midnight or Silver MacBook Air for $100 off the regular price.
The model up for sale has 8 GB of unified memory and a 256 GB SSD, which has a regular price of $1,199. Amazon also sells the Space Gray and starlight models, but the price cut is only $50.
In our review of the MacBook Air, we said, “Unless you’re doing serious high-end video editing or other compute-intensive work all the time, you don’t need a MacBook Pro.” It has a new design over its predecessor, with a larger, brighter screen, a MagSafe power adapter, a great keyboard (with Touch ID) and trackpad, and speakers and a microphone that work well for a laptop of this size.
Our only complaint is the FaceTime camera, but that’s not unique to the MacBook Air: Apple needs to improve all of its FaceTime cameras on all of its Macs.
