Black Friday arrives early with this hefty discount on our recommended best overall laptop to buy. For a limited time, our beloved MacBook Air M2 is on sale for $899 at B&H. Typically $1,099, that's $200 in savings and the lowest outright discount we've seen for this Apple laptop. Earlier this year, it briefly fell to $849 at Best Buy for My Best Buy Plus and Total members only.

In real-world tests, we were floored by the MacBook Air M2's elegant redesign, fantastic performance and bright, colorful screen. As for battery-life, it endured 14 hours in our Laptop Mag Battery test which is pretty solid. 

Laptop Mag: ★★★★½ | Tom's Guide: ★★★★½ | TechRadar: ★★★★

Buy it if: You want a portable, MacBook Pro alternative. This 13-inch M2 is adequate for day-to-day computing and powerful enough for video editing and casual gaming. As a bonus, the Magic Keyboard is a pleasure to type on.

Don't it buy if: You want a laptop for competitive gaming. While the MacBook Air M2 can run select MacOS-optimized games smoothly with solid frame rates. You may encounter subpar performance with non-optimized titles.
