Amazon Prime Day is upon us, and we're already seeing killer deals on Apple products.

The new MacBook Air sports a Core i3-1005G1 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. It also features Apple's radically  Magic Keyboard. It's on sale for $949.99 but you get an extra $100 off at the checkout stage for a final price of just $849.99. 

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. 

But the most significant upgrade was the move to the new scissor key mechanism that sees the rather crappy Butterfly mechanism keyboard get replaced by the 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. And with $150 off, it’s an even more attractive machine.
