The best MacBook Air deals

Plus: Get a free year of Apple TV Plus with every MacBook Air purchase.

Sarah Tew/CNET

Apple's September launch event brought us the new iPhone 11 and Apple Watch Series 5 -- but no news of the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro or anything related to the MacBook Air. So, for now, we'll have to make do with the modest discounts we're seeing on both the 2018 and 2019 models. 

At the moment, Amazon has the best prices on the newest MacBook Air, which Apple introduced in July, and the 2018 models, too. Apple, in a rare gesture of largesse, is 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.)

The all-time low price has disappeared -- but Amazon is still offering more than $150 off the 2018 version of the MacBook Air. This model is nearly identical to the 2019 version, except that it doesn't have Apple's True Tone display technology. But you do get a 128GB SSD that's faster than the one in the newer model.

Amazon delivers the 256GB version of the 2018 MacBook Air for under retail. That noted, the 2019 equivalent is just $20 more, so it's really a toss-up.  Read the MacBook Air 2019 review
