Apple MacBook Air — $900, was $1,000
Ordinarily priced at $1,000, the Apple MacBook Air is enjoying a modest discount at Amazon with $100 off. MacBook deals are hard to come by so this works out as a pretty good offer. For the price, you get the latest model MacBook Air which means a 10th generation Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of memory, and 256GB of SSD storage. With a 13-inch screen, it’s big enough for you to see everything you’re doing while also small enough that it’s easy to toss into your bag and take wherever you’re going. It weighs just under 3 pounds.
With up to 12 hours of battery life, you can’t go wrong with how wonderfully portable the MacBook Air is. If you’re worried about security, touch ID support means you can be safe in the knowledge that your laptop can never be unlocked without your fingerprint. It’s a great addition to a device already focused on portability.
Right now, you can get the Apple MacBook Air for only $900 at Amazon, after an additional $50 automatic discount at checkout.

The laptop is Dell’s smallest 13-inch laptop ever and weighs only 2.7 pounds. It promises an incredible battery life too with Dell reckoning it’ll last up to 19 hours when using productivity apps or up to 17 hours when streaming Netflix. It looks stylish too with a smaller bezel than ever before while still offering useful security features like a fingerprint reader.
