Apple's latest model of the MacBook Air makes use of the company's M1 chip for lightening fast performance, with 18 hours of battery life and a speedy 512GB SSD as well, it's a complete laptop package for a great price.

Apple’s M1 chip was introduced last winter, and it made a big splash in the world of computing. Unsurprisingly this led to many Apple fans rushing to upgrade their MacBook as soon as possible. But those who held off have been rewarded with this discount offering the laptop for a reduced price. 

In our review, we called the MacBook Air M1 “a computing revolution” and praised the machine for its super-speedy performance, incredibly lengthy battery life and excellent usability of its keyboard. 

We said, “The new Apple MacBook Air with M1 redefines the MacBook Air as we know it, taking an iconic laptop and super-charging it.” So you could say we’re quite big fans of this device. We thoroughly recommended it at full price, giving it an editor’s choice award, at $80 off there really is no excuse not to upgrade. 

The laptop now sits proudly in second place on our best laptops guide, trumped only by the Dell XPS 13. But that’s a windows machine, so not suitable for those who prefer Mac. Overall, the MacBook Air M1 offers phenomenal performance alongside Apple’s trademark slick interface, although we could have done with a few more ports. 

Memorial Day may still be several weeks away but this deal is definitely among the best Memorial Day laptop sales we are likely to see through the whole holiday period. MacBook stock sells out notoriously fast on Amazon, so we recommend securing yours while you still have the chance. And make sure to follow our MacBook deals coverage for more Apple laptop discounts.
