The Internet is all abuzz over the first reviews of the M1-based MacBook Air, but if you’d rather have one of the Intel models, we’ve for a killer deal for you. Amazon is selling the prior-gen MacBook Air with a 10th-generation Intel Core i5 processor and 512GB of storage for $1,050 today when you apply the $199 coupon on the listing. That’s $200 off the MSRP and the best price we’ve ever seen. The Core i3 model with 256GB of storage is also on sale for $150 off, but we recommend the higher model.

This MacBook Air model only launched in March and we gave it 4-stars and an Editor’s Choice rating for its improved speed and excellent Magic Keyboard. Granted, it’s not a speed demon like the new M1, but it’ll run all of your Intel apps with ease, smoothly upgrade to Big Sur, and last plenty long to get you through a full workday. Of course, if you’d rather pay more for a new M1-based laptop, we completely understand. But with a $200 discount, this MacBook Air gets you twice as much storage and the guarantee that your apps will run without needing an update.
