A pair of discounts on Apple's 2022 13-inch MacBook Pro and 2020 MacBook Air have appeared today on Amazon, offering up to $199 off these notebooks. As of writing, these sales are only available on Amazon.

MacBook Air

Starting with the 2020 M1 MacBook Air, the 256GB model is on sale for the all-time low price of $799.99, down from $999.00. Space Gray and Gold colors are available at this price, although shipping for both has begun to stretch into April.

This version of the MacBook Air sports a tapered design and does not have the updated chassis of the newer M2 MacBook Air models. It has the M1 chip and a 13-inch Retina display, and today's sale matches the previous all-time low price seen on Amazon for the computer.

MacBook Pro

Moving to the 256GB 13-inch MacBook Pro, this model is on sale for $1,149.00 on Amazon, down from $1,299.00. This is a second-best price on the MacBook Pro, but we haven't tracked record low prices since last fall and this remains the best price that we've seen so far in 2023.

I feel like Apple is gonna keep around the M1 Air to become their cheapest notebook ever. They need something to compete with Chromebooks and Surface Go's.

Thats the same audience that uses Chromebooks and cheap Windows notebooks. If Apple can have a notebook thats at least 699, those 'poor' college students will spend a little bit more considering, this is something they are gonna keep for 4 or more years.
I don't think the same people who are buying a M1 Air are using a $300 Chromebook for the same purpose. Maybe they have a cheap Chromebook just to toss in their bag for going someplace because they don't want their Air to get stolen. It's been a like two years since I took a college course but they wanted everything in MS Word so that kind of kills the Chromebook. Maybe that was just the college I went to though. Sure there's the web version but it's not great. I think that college student would be spending about $600 on a decent Windows laptop. I agree if Apple could bring the price of the M1 Air to $699 that would hit the target market really hard. I'm not sure Apple is going to keep the M1 Air around that long though.

I live in a college town and I see most college kids with Airs and 14 inch M1/Pro MacBook Pro's anyway and the token Windows laptops sprinkled here and there. So, I think Apple is already winning among this demographic. There is another café I walk by on Saturday mornings when I go grocery shopping, all I see in there are 13 inch touch bar and Air MacBooks with MS Word and paragraphs of text. I rarely ever see Chromebooks to be honest. Another thing I have to wonder, these kids seem to have the latest iPhone Pro Maxes too. Rich parents or credit cards?

That would be awesome. I love this machine (currently typing on it). I only use it for streaming and messing about so I'm underutilizing it but it's still impressive nonetheless, even the base model. A Window machine or Chromebook would have the fans blazing even with light use. This rarely gets warm, very rarely. I held an M1 Air side by side with the M2 Air and the M1 Air was cooler to the touch and the speakers sounded better.

I'm wondering if I should get the outgoing 16GB RAM model or wait for an updated version with a 3nm chip. The extra battery life would be awesome. But I love the form factor of the 2020 M1.

Wait you already have an M1 Air and you're wondering if you should buy an M2 or a higher configuration M1? Maybe if you have money buring a hole in your pocket. IMO it would be wasteful unless you have a specfic need for more RAM or something is wrong with your current M1 Air.
