Amazon's New Sale Has $170 Off M2 MacBook Air and $299 Off Apple Studio Display

Today we're tracking a pair of deals on Amazon, which is discounting the M2 MacBook Air to multiple all-time low prices, as well as the Apple Studio Display. Both devices are in stock on Amazon with delivery estimates between June 8 and June 12 as of writing.

Starting with the M2 13-inch MacBook Air, Amazon this week has every model available for $170 off, which are matches for the record low prices on this version of the MacBook Air. These prices are available to all shoppers and do not require a coupon code.

The 256GB model is on sale for $829.00 and the 512GB model is available for $1,029.00. These deals are only available on Amazon right now, and the retailer has each model on sale in all four colors.

Following the introduction of the M3 MacBook Air, Apple knocked the price of the 13-inch M2 MacBook Air down by $100, and it's still selling them alongside the M3 model. The main difference between the two generations lies in the performance upgrade that the M3 chip brings, so if your priority is saving money you stand to benefit from Amazon's steep discounts.

Secondly, Amazon has again dropped the price of the Apple Studio Display (Standard Glass) down to $1,299.99, down from $1,599.00. This is the model with the tilt-adjustable stand, although you can find the same deal on the VESA mount adapter model right now on Amazon.

The Apple Studio Display is a 27-inch monitor that features 5K resolution, supports up to 600 nits of brightness, P3 Wide color for vivid colors, and True Tone to match the white balance of the display to the lighting in the room. There is an upgraded nano-texture glass model, but we aren't tracking any deals on that one this week.

Apple Studio Display is almost worth it for the unboxing experience alone. You may think this sounds ridiculous, but when you experience it you'll be like wow.... 'I needed this moment in time'

I am probably getting something wrong here
Not at all -- you are 100% correct to want 16GB RAM

That should be the base amount on ALL Macs

It would be, if Apple weren't so obsessed with screwing customers on upgrade pricing as a main revenue generation practice.

The upgrade pricing ladder is horrendous and Apple charges way too much for the jump from 8GB to 16GB, but 8GB RAM is perfectly fine for many people. I'm talking about the ones like my wife who do emails, web, photos, iMovie, MS Office productivity etc. Most 'normal' users will be fine with 8GB, so the use and sale of it as a base spec machine remains strong.

I'm not saying that 16GB isn't better than 8GB. It's just people who aren't enthusiasts (geeks like us here) won't even know if their Mac has 8GB or 16GB in their machines. My wife has no idea what an M1, M2, M3 or M4 is. She has no clue about what RAM spec she has or even how much SSD space. She uses her Mac to get things done and her 8GB M1 Air is more computer than she can use. My parents are the same and 8GB rocks it for them, as are my cousins and most of my friends.

Still - it does suck that 16GB is rarely on sale for those of that want or need more.

Not going to go back and forth all day on this rather old debate, but an extra 8GB of RAM costs Apple practically nothing and we should be expecting way more than "fine for many people" from Apple hardware at the prices they charge.

Not singling you out, but folks defending this practice in 2024 are part of the problem and why Apple keeps getting away with screwing its customers.

Let's demand more from them

Cheers ?
If many people freely choose to buy Apple products and are happy with their purchase, then how is Apple screwing them? You may believe you are getting screwed (I personally never understood this feeling in the context of electronics because if a product is overpriced then I simply don’t buy it or I buy some cheaper alternative, but who am I to tell anyone how to feel), and that’s ok it’s your belief, but don’t speak for everyone. Of course everyone wants more for less, but—and perhaps this isn’t your intention, however—saying that someone who happily bought something is actually getting screwed implies that they’re ignorant, and at the very least it’s telling them that they should share your values. And who has any right to tell anyone that?
And folks defending Apple (or folks who don’t care about Apple but just try to follow reason where it leads) on forums is not why Apple continues to “get away” with charging its prices. It’s the droves of people buying Apple's products and being satisfied with their purchases that allow it—that’s it. Those are the only people you have to blame.
I have a similar situation. Not about price, but I hate big phones. It frustrates me to no end that I can’t get a decent small smartphone these days (regardless of price). But I know it’s because the masses want big phones. I don’t blame them or tell them they’re wrong, I just hope someday there are enough people like me that it will make business sense for small phones to come back. But I have little hope in that so I just make do.

Amazon has had the display deal for a while (on and off?). I couldn't resist, especially with 0% and 12/month installments. Much better than the 4K LG I was using (now as a second monitor).
