The MacBook Air M1 is the most affordable MacBook under normal circumstances, but if an Apple laptop was on your holiday shopping list then I've got great news. It has dipped back to its all-time low price.

Normally $999, the MacBook Air M1 is $749 at Amazon right now. You're going to see $799 when you click through to that page, but I wasn't tricking you, just click "Apply $50 coupon" right below the price and then add to the cart to score that $749 final price.

Not sure if it's the right MacBook Air M1 is right for you? Don't worry, there are plenty of other December MacBook deals on just about every model.

Buy if:  You want a capable, travel-friendly laptop with long battery life. The MacBook Air M1 is still a solid choice for typical productivity and computing tasks. Plus, the Magic Keyboard makes for a comfortable typing experience.

Don't buy if: You want a laptop for gaming or incredibly intensive computing tasks. You hang on to your laptops for 7+ years, as the M1 Air is already 3 years old, it's a better fit for those that will look to trade-in after 3-4 years.
