The best MacBook Air deals

With Black Friday around the corner, the MacBook Air deals are ramping up.

Sarah Tew/CNET

Black Friday approaches. Rumors swirl about new Apple laptops. It's the perfect storm for MacBook Air discounts. And in recent weeks, we've seen prices all over the map. At the moment, Amazon has a lock on the best prices for both the 2018 and 2019 models. 

A word of caution: Amazon's search results have begun to surface older MacBook Air models from 2017 -- which you shouldn't buy under any circumstance -- with the designation "Previous Model." To be clear, we think the entry-level 2018 model is still worth buying when priced between $800 and $900. (The 256GB model from 2018 is usually not priced competitively.) Otherwise, the best deals are on the 2019 version. The links below have been vetted.

Apple is still throwing in a free year of its forthcoming Apple TV Plus service with every purchase of a MacBook Air -- regardless of where you buy it. (Note that this deal extends to any new or refurbished iPhoneiPadApple TVMac or iPod Touch, too.)

Amazon offers $100 off the brand-new MacBook Air -- the one with the Retina True Tone display -- that Apple released in July. It's not nothing -- but it's far from the best deal we've seen on this model. Read our MacBook Air 2019 preview.

Amazon is offering $100 off the 2018 version of the MacBook Air -- and the same price on the newer model from 2019. They're nearly identical, though the 2018 model has a 128GB SSD that's faster than the one in the newer model. Read our MacBook Air 2018 review.

Amazon is back with a nice discount on the step-up version of the 2019 MacBook Air with 256GB of storage. Read our 13-inch MacBook Air review.

Guillermo Pont/CNET

Deals on the 2018 configurations are becoming scarce. Given that the current model is $40 less, you're better off with the 256GB model from 2019. Read our MacBook Air 2018 review.
