It was bound to happen. Now that Apple's new MacBook Air is out, the previous Intel-powered MacBook Air is getting some massive price cuts.
Currently, you can get the Apple MacBook Air on sale for $849.99 at Amazon. That's $150 off and the cheapest price we've seen for this 2020 laptop. It also happens to be one of the best Black Friday deals we've seen this week. (Note: Amazon offers an on-screen coupon that drops its price to $849.99 during checkout).

When we tested the MacBook Air 2020 earlier on in the year, we were suitably impressed by its elegant design and powerful speakers, among a host of other features.
However, the MacBook Air's biggest upgrade is its new Magic Keyboard. It provides better key travel and a design that's set to be more durable than those of the older MacBook laptops. Other highlights include a vivid Retina Display, dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, and powerful speakers.
We consider the latest MacBook Air to be very worthy of a spot on our best laptops list. Sure, there's the new Apple CPU-based MacBook Air, but at this price we can't resist the excellent Intel-based models.
