One week after we tracked deals on the new 2020 MacBook Air on Amazon, today the retailer expanded its sales to include the new 512GB model of the MacBook Air. You can get this notebook with increased storage for $1,243.55, down from $1,299.00 (only in Gold).

This discount is applied automatically at the checkout screen, and is $56.44 down from Apple's traditional price on the MacBook Air. The notebook is available to ship out today and should arrive to users in the United States before April 11, or as early as this week for Prime members.

If you're shopping around for the 256GB model, Amazon still has this MacBook Air for $949.99, down from $999.00 (only in Space Gray). This is the same ongoing $49 discount that we saw last week, and you won't have to wait until the checkout screen to see the savings on this one.

We've begun tracking the best monthly deals on all new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models in our new Best Deals guide. Be sure to visit the guide and bookmark it if you're on the hunt for a new Apple notebook; we'll be updating it weekly as we discover new MacBook offers across the web.

Are you telling me they had the opportunity to sell this for $1,234.56 and they didn't do it?

When something has a price with a comma in it ($1,000+)... should we really be excited about a measly $56 discount?

One thing's for sure... it got an article written about it. Points for Amazon's marketing team! :P

I feel like I wouldn’t buy a new Mac without 16gb of ram at this point. My 2015 MacBook Air has 4gb and I think that’s the biggest reason it feels too slow. I wish I could simply upgrade the ram rather than having to buy a whole new machine.

I just don't see how a discount of between $49 and $56.44 is worth posting a front page article over.

I remember reading an article about how many people erroneously think about saving money only in terms of percentage of the purchase price.

Unless $50 is an inconsequential amount of money to you, it shouldn't matter whether you're saving $50 on a $100 purchase, a $1000 purchase, or a $10000 purchase. It's the same amount of extra cash in your pocket, regardless.
