Amazon Introduces New Record Low Price on 15-Inch M3 MacBook Air, Plus $100 Off Previous Gen Models

Amazon this week introduced one of the first discounts on Apple's brand new 15-inch M3 MacBook Air. Only one model is on sale: the 256GB 15-inch M3 MacBook Air in Starlight is available for $1,234.00, down from $1,299.00.

At $65 off, this is a new all-time low price on the 15-inch M3 MacBook Air. Best Buy has a larger selection of deals with essentially every 13-inch and 15-inch M3 MacBook Air on sale at $50 off, but the catch is you'll need a My Best Buy Plus/Total membership to see the deals.

Additionally, we're tracking fresh discounts on the previous generation 13-inch M2 MacBook Air at Best Buy. You can get the 256GB model for $899.00 in all colors and the 512GB model for $1,099.00 in all colors. Both of these are $100 markdowns and all-time low prices.

Apple's MacBook Air lineup can be a bit confusing to navigate, so be sure to read our buyer's guides comparing the generations and the difference between Apple's M2 and M3 chips.

"Record low" is such a popular adjective around here.

I better get two. Who knows when I'll get the change to save 5% again!

I will gladly test out any M3 Air system, even with the stock 8 GB of RAM, for anyone. You will likely have to buy a second one for yourself, but the joys of knowing what to expect might be too important for you to pass up. ;)

You can tell by sales everywhere… across the west that things are just not selling. I mean i think its a positive environmentally… i think we need to have a sit down and think about how our economies can develop in the near future… the constant cycle of increased sales can not go on forever as things are.

Very few companies seem to be addressing the situation… it’s the definition of stupid, doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result. They need a new sustainable economic model.

Ive been looking around a few apple stores recently and they were very very quiet, everywhere seems quiet. People are just not buying.

not selling well.
This is Amazon doing a very small discount. Amazon and Bestbuy do most of their sales on “discounted” products because that is what people expect from them. People are much less likely to buy something at list price from either vendor. This is a token discount to bring the price below list. This doesn’t really say anything about how the overall product is selling.

A lot of folks are saying buy the M2 while the price is low... and that's not a bad strategy, but this person put out there why the M3 might deserve a second look.

bottom line is there are enough features out there that are different that over the life of the machine might justify the price difference.

It's kind of surprising that nobody seems to be advertising M1 Airs at deeper discounts. They just disappeared.
