When it comes to making big purchases, you can either save up forever or wait for a really good sale. Needless to say, we always prefer to do the latter. Case in point? We won't have to spend months cash stuffing in order to upgrade our laptop, because we're hitting up Best Buy's massive Apple MacBook Air sale—and if you're in the market for a new computer, so should you. While you can save up to $1,260 on several of the brand's best-selling models (including the laptop PureWow readers bought on repeat during Amazon Prime Day last year), it wouldn't be a bad idea to secure Apple's latest model while it's up to $400 off.

The new 15-inch MacBook Air, which retails starting at $1,299, is currently on sale for as low as $999, so you shouldn't think twice about bringing one home. Whether or not you already own an Apple computer, you probably know they're some of the fastest, most intuitive and long-lasting mean machines on the market. Why else would everyone *and* their tech-challenged grandmas love them? The sleek and lightweight design is obviously one of its biggest selling points, and with features like a 15.3-inch retina display and six-speaker sound system, you can look forward to sharp picture, clear text and vibrant sound (so streamers, readers and graphic designers, rejoice!). Plus, it has an 18-hour battery life, so you can work on-the-go without worrying about finding a plug.


Just so you know, all of its amazing features are possible due to its M2 chip, which essentially makes the computer run even more smoothly and quietly compared to Apple's older models. And, yes, this newest laptop has the same—and maybe even better—silent, fanless design everyone loves, as well as an HD camera and three microphones that will make you look and sound your best on Zoom (even when you're checking in from the airport).

"It's the kind of device that you just want to show off to everyone around you," one reviewer explains. "The keyboard is [also] a dream to type on, offering a tactile and responsive feel...It's a joy to use, whether for work, entertainment or creative endeavors. Apple has once again delivered a product that not only looks and feels premium, but also performs at the top of its class."

We couldn't have said it better ourselves. In fact, we're feeling so inspired by the sale that we just might treat ourselves to a new iPad, too. Yes, Best Buy is also offering tons of deals on Apple iPads and more tablets RN, and it's the perfect excuse to make all those big-ticket tech purchases you've been putting off. Quit saving your old devices, folks, and start saving on some shiny new ones. You'll thank us later.
