The all-time low prices on some 2018 and 2019 models are back.

Apple's Tuesday event introduced the new iPhone 11 and Apple Watch Series 5 -- but there's was no mention of the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro or any news related to the MacBook Air. And we're OK with that, because the mega discounts on Apple's entry-level laptop have now returned, with Amazon, Best Buy and B&H offering prices that are hundreds less than the ones you'll find at the Apple Store. 

Plus, Apple is still offering a deal of its own to students. The new 2019 MacBook Air starts at $1,000 -- a $100 discount on the list price -- and comes with a free pair of Beats headphones. The deal is available to current and newly accepted college students and their parents, as well as faculty, staff and home-school teachers of all grade levels, according to Apple's website.

Note CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. 

Check out all of the details below.

B&H is offering $200 off Apple's list price for the 2018 version of the MacBook Air -- though you can get the newer 2019 model for the same price (see below). The older model is nearly identical -- except that it doesn't have Apple's True Tone display technology -- but you get a 128GB SSD that's faster than the one in the newer model

The all-time low price returns! This is a $200 discount on the brand-new MacBook Air -- the one with the Retina True Tone display -- that Apple released in July

Best Buy's price on the step-up version of the 2018 MacBook Air, with 256GB of storage, is a whopping $250 less than Apple's list price.

Amazon and Best Buy are both running a $200 discount on the step-up version of the newest 2019 model, with the 256GB SSD.
