As deals editor-in-chief at Tom's Guide, I closely track the best Apple deals every day. As an Apple user, I'm also constantly looking for the best Apple bargains for myself and right now is an excellent time to upgrade your Mac. I'm seeing amazing deals on both previous-gen and current-gen Apple gear. 

The best deal right now is the current-gen MacBook Air 13-inch M3 on sale for just $999 at Amazon. That's $100 off and the lowest price ever for this newly released machine. (Note that it's selling out fast, so be sure to check all colors for this price). Additionally, you can get the iMac 24-inch (M3/256GB) on sale for $1,199 at B&H Photo. That's $100 off and the lowest price I've seen on Apple's new Mac. The Amazon page says it's out of stock, but you can still place your order at this price and Amazon will deliver it when stock is replenished. 

That's not the only amazing deal though. Below are the best Apple sales right now, along with a deal on the MacBook I purchased last year. Also don't miss this Apple Vision Pro deal.

MacBook Air 15 (M2/256GB): was $1,299 now $999 @ Best Buy
This is the Mac I currently own and I love it. The 15-inch MacBook Air M2 is arguably the best 15-inch laptop on the market. It packs a gorgeous Liquid Retina display (2880 x 1864), Apple's M2 CPU w/ 8-core GPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and a better six-speaker sound system than you'll find on the 13-inch model. In our&nbsp;MacBook Air M2 review, we called the Editor's Choice laptop an unbeatable combo of stellar performance, long-lasting battery life, and sleek design.

If you want to future-proof your laptop, I highly recommend upgrading to 16GB of RAM. This upgraded model also bumps your storage to 1TB. It's one of the very few times I've seen the 16GB RAM model on sale.

Lowest price! It's no longer Apple's flagship, but the MacBook Air M1 offers fantastic performance and value. The M1 CPU never stuttered in our tests and also helped it reach over 14 hours of battery life. It features a 13.3-inch Retina display, Apple M1 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. In our <a href="https://www.tomsguide.com/reviews/macbook-air-2020-m1" data-link-merchant="tomsguide.com"" data-link-merchant="bhphotovideo.com"">MacBook Air M1 review, we said it offers amazing endurance and shockingly good speed.
