Apple's Cyber Monday deals are still going strong. Right now, there are a couple of particularly nice deals on two models of the 2020 MacBook Air M1

First, there's the lower-spec model for $849, a $150 discount from the regular price, for one of the best and most affordable MacBooks. Or you can grab the model with more memory and storage for $1,199, a $450 discount. While there isn't a clear-cut expiration on the $849 deal, the $1,199 MacBook Air deal expires at midnight on the East Coast and 9 p.m. out West. 

(If you're hunting for other devices from Apple, there are plenty more Cyber Monday deals to be had.) 

Apple's MacBook Air has been a top pick for years for those favoring portability, thanks to its thin and light design. In 2020, the machine was updated with Apple silicon, upping the power and adding hours of battery life without increasing in bulk or price.

The $849 2020 MacBook Air comes equipped with a 13.3-inch display, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage and is powered by Apple's M1 chip. It combines portability and power into a package that's sure to impress. It can easily handle everyday tasks such as email, web browsing and photo editing and even more resource-intensive things like video editing and casual gaming. It can run Apple's latest operating system, MacOS Ventura, which was just released this fall. The battery should last for up to 18 hours before needing a recharge. 

Meanwhile, the $1,199 2020 M1 MacBook Air model comes with 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. This version of the Air could be a good choice for anyone who needs a bigger SSD to store pictures, videos and more.  It's also great for those who love to have a million tabs open or need to run multiple memory-intensive apps as once.
