Happy Black Friday everyone! Yes, the day has finally arrived and boy has it started with a bang. In fact, one of the first Black Friday laptop deals we've stumbled across might be the only one you ever need to know about. 

Costco is selling the new 2019 MacBook Air for $799 after a $200 discount applied on top of the store's $100 off manufacturer's savings. Of course, you have to be Costco member and to sign in to your account in order to snag this deal. If you're not a Costco member, check out our best MacBook Black Friday deals page for similar savings. 

If you are, you'll get the base model MacBook Air, which has a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.

This is the lowest price we've ever seen for the new MacBook Air. This is the base model with a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. This deal is available to Costco members only. 

In our MacBook Air review, we gave Apple props for lowering the price of its ultra-slim machine and adding its True Tone display technology. Those new additions joined a recently refreshed chassis, which features thin display bezels and a compact aluminum frame.

The MacBook Air is a great option for students who want to run macOS but don't want to pay MacBook Pro prices. It has a gorgeous 13.3-inch Retina display, powerful sound and an elegant design. 

Costco's $799 price is the lowest we've ever seen on the MacBook Air. But just to reiterate: you need to be a Costco member to add the laptop to your cart. 

We don't expect this deal to stick around for long, so snatch it up before it disappears.
