Apple's 2020 MacBook Air features a new Magic Keyboard for a comfortable typing experience. In our MacBook Air 2020 review, we were impressed by its sleek design, great battery life and clicky Magic Keyboard.
The AirPods Pro earbuds make the perfect complement to any MacBook. As we detail in our AirPods Pro review, these earbuds are extremely comfortable, pair seamlessly to iDevice and offer decent noise cancellation.
We loved the AirPods Pro so much that we gave them our Editor's Choice award for their clear, balanced sound.
There's no telling when this deal will expire, however, like all Apple deals, we don't expect it to last too long. So if you're a student, parent or teacher, don't wait to take advantage of this deal.
