The Macbook Air is so cheap right now it has to be a mistake

Prime Day 2020 brought down prices of some Apple products to their lowest ever. And while Amazon’s two-day annual blockbuster sale is officially over, you still have time to score one of the best tech deals: The latest MacBook Air at $850, $150 less than what it usually sells for.

Apple’s MacBook Air has been the notebook to beat in its price segment for ages and it’s still ideal for anyone in search of a reliable and all-around computer at a bargain. It offers all the essentials you’d expect from a modern laptop starting with a lightweight and slim aluminum exterior that both looks and feels premium.

This MacBook Air model doesn’t compromise on specs either. It has an Intel 10th-gen Core i3 chipset, 8GB of RAM, over 10 hours of rated battery life, and a 256GB SSD that should be sufficient for apps and media. It also features a high-res 13-inch screen that can adjust its color temperature automatically based on the room’s ambiance. For your increasing number of daily video calls, the MacBook Air comes equipped with a total of three microphones and an HD webcam.

In addition, the MacBook Air has a fingerprint reader for quick authentication and a pair of USB Type-C ports for external peripherals. Another highlight of this notebook is its massive, glass trackpad, and an improved backlit keyboard that won’t break easily like its predecessors.

At the discounted $850 price, the MacBook Air is a steal and without a doubt, one of the most capable traditional laptops you can buy. But you have to be quick as with Prime Day 2020 now behind us, this deal can expire any moment. If it does expire before you manage to grab it or if you have different preferences, there is a great range of more Prime Day laptop deals you can still shop.
