If you’ve been eyeing a new laptop for the holidays, you’re in luck. Amazon is gearing up for Thanksgiving with a slew of early Black Friday deals that can’t be beat.

Take the Apple MacBook Air, for example. The 13-inch model is currently on sale for 30% off, which means you’ll save a whopping $300.


The MacBook Air has a 1.8 GHz dual-core processor, an LED-backlit display, two USB ports and 8GB of memory, so you don’t have to worry about purchasing an external hard drive. The battery lasts up to 12 hours, which is equivalent to other Apple products.

The laptop weighs less than three pounds, making it slightly smaller than the MacBook Pro. The MacBook Air is ideal for commuters, students and anyone who’s tired of lugging around a five-pound computer.

Why Buy Through Amazon Versus Apple?

Not only does the company offer a variety of expedited shipping choices, but there’s also a “next day” option.

If you don’t want to pay the extra fees, no problem. Should you choose the standard shipping option, the device would arrive in early December if ordered this week.

Amazon even gives you the opportunity to add AppleCare+, which is a three-year warranty for an extra $249.

Guess Christmas came early after all.
