This week has already brought rare deals on some of the most popular Apple products, including the AirPods Max headphones for the lowest price ever, regular AirPods for $69, and even the recently released iPad Pro M4 and latest iPad Airs. And now the lead-up to Prime Day 2024 has gotten even better for Apple users, as the MacBook Air M2 has been slashed to its lowest price yet at Amazon and Best Buy. At just $799–a $200 discount–this MacBook Air deal offers the best combo of price and performance we’ve seen from a MacBook all year. Amazon has already sold out of three of the four color options, but if you aren’t a fan of the remaining color (Midnight), Best Buy has all four in stock.

The MacBook Air with M2 chip remains an excellent laptop in 2024. Apple’s proprietary chipset boasts an 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU. It’s very uncommon for a MacBook with this much power and speed to be sold for $799 (in new condition), so it’s not surprising that Amazon has already sold out of a few of the color options. For now, Best Buy has all four styles in stock: Midnight, Starlight, Space Gray, and Silver.


Outside of the great chip, you’ll get a 13.6-inch Liquid Retina Display, 8GB RAM, and a 1080p FaceTime HD webcam to chat with family or duck into a video conference.

Rounding out the spec sheet for the MacBook Air M2 is a slim chassis that weighs less than three pounds, a battery that gets you up to 18 hours of juice, and a speaker system with support for spatial audio. Toss in the responsive Magic Keyboard and Touch ID for quick access, and it’s easy to see why the MacBook Air is so popular for students and professionals alike. The M2 MacBook Air certainly isn’t meant to be a dedicated gaming machine, but the vast majority of games that offer Mac support should run great.
