The best MacBook Air deals: Get the 2018 model for $850



Sarah Tew/CNET

Apple’s Tuesday event introduced the new iPhone 11 and Apple Watch Series 5 — but there’s was no mention of the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro or any news related to the MacBook Air. And we’re OK with that, because the mega discounts on Apple’s entry-level laptop have now returned, with Amazon and Best Buy offering prices that are hundreds less than the ones you’ll find at the Apple Store. (Best Buy seems to have the best prices on the 2018 models; Amazon and Best Buy are offering equal discounts on the 2019 models.)

Plus, Apple is still offering a deal of its own to students. The new 2019 MacBook Air starts at $1,000 — a $100 discount on the list price — and comes with a free pair of Beats headphones. The deal is available to current and newly accepted college students and their parents, as well as faculty, staff and home-school teachers of all grade levels, according to Apple’s website.

Best Buy is again offering a $250 discount off Apple’s list price for the 2018 version of the MacBook Air (select colors only). The model on sale is nearly identical to the brand-new one that debuted in July — except that it doesn’t have Apple’s True Tone display technology. But you do get an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory and a 128GB SSD that’s faster than the one in the newer model.

The all-time low price returns! This is a $200 discount on the brand-new MacBook Air — the one with the Retina True Tone display — that Apple released in July. 

Best Buy’s price on the step-up version of the 2018 MacBook Air, with 256GB of storage, is a whopping $250 less than Apple’s list price.

Amazon and Best Buy are both running a $200 discount on the step-up version of the newest 2019 model, with the 256GB SSD.
