One of the best Prime Day MacBook deals still available brings the MacBook Air to a stellar price.

Amazon continues to offer the M1 MacBook Air  for $899.99. That's $99 off its original $999 list price and the MacBook Air's lowest price yet. If you're a poweruser, you can get the M1 MacBook Pro  for $1,199.99 ($100 off). 

These are two of the best Prime Day MacBook deals you can still get.

The M1-charged MacBook Air is one of the best laptops to buy. The laptop in this deal packs a 13.3-inch (2560 x 1600) IPS Retina display, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD. Port-wise, the MacBook Air supplies you with two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a headphone jack.

In our MacBook Air with M1 review, we were impressed by its breathtaking performance, and slim, unibody design. We also loved its lengthy battery life which tapped out at 14 hours and 41 minutes during testing. We gave the MacBook Air with M1 chip a high rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars and the Editor's Choice award. 

During real-world testing, the M1 chip scoffed when we loaded 25 tabs on Google Chrome, four of which played YouTube videos while another pair streamed on Twitch. 

At 12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches with a weight of 2.8 pounds, the MacBook Air M1 is as thin as its competitors. It's on par with the weight of the Dell XPS 13 (11.6 x 7.8 x 0.6 inches, 2.8 pounds), and 13.5-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (12.1 x 8.8 x 0.6 inches, 2.9 pounds).
