A little birdie told us you're hoping to score a new computer during Amazon Prime Big Deal Days. And not just any laptop—a MacBook Air that checks boxes you didn't know you needed. (A Touch ID? Yes, please.) It's one of the sleekest computers you can own and quite possibly the most long-lasting (no, seriously, I've held on to mine for five years and counting). Usually, these bad boys cost a pretty penny, but this MacBook Air sale, from now through October 11, has the best model marked down from $999 to $750, but only for Prime members.

There's still time to sign up for free if you haven't done so already. It'll be the best decision you make all week because, like most of the best deals, you probably won't have a chance to save this big again, so we'll cut to the chase. With features like a 13-inch retina display, you can finally look forward to sharp, clear text and vibrant colors—a must for streamers and readers. And it has an 18-hour battery life.

BTW: All of the above is possible due to its M1 chip which essentially makes the computer run as smoothly and quietly as it does. (It also features a silent, fanless design.) As for colors, you can scoop one up in gold, silver or space gray, though we're partial to the gold.

In addition to the powerful system and stunning design, we love that the laptop is under three pounds. It actually weighs in at 2.8 pounds, which is under the three to seven-pound average, meaning it fits nicely in most tote bags for work *and* backpacks if you're surprising your kid in college.


Care most about the camera and mics? Know that the superior image signal processor makes you look and sound your best on every FaceTime call and video conference call. More specifically, it adjusts white balance and exposure to bring out your natural-looking skin tone. So yeah, as one reviewer says, "The camera never fails," but more importantly, the nearly $250 discount won't fail you if you act fast.
