Not only is it extremely rare for Apple to run sales, but this is one of the best deals we've seen across the board. Ready to hear it? This Macbook Air is on sale for $249 off — bringing the price down to just $750! This almost matches the all-time lowest price we’ve seen on this gem. Our advice? Buy now! There's no telling how long this deal will last.

What’s so great about it? With a speedy Intel Core i3 Dual-Core chip (10th generation) built-in, 8GB of memory, 256GB of on-board storage and the latest version of MacOS Catalina, it’s a beast. It’s also super-lightweight at just under three pounds.

Why is this a good Black Friday deal?

Saving $249 is always a welcome surprise, but especially on a laptop that has never seen a discount this low before. That's right — this is one of the lowest prices this has ever reached, and it's a deal you don't want to miss.

Why we recommend the MacBook Air

What really separated this MacBook Air from previous models, when it first launched, was its new and improved Magic Keyboard. Previously, Apple had used a ‘butterfly style’ keyboard that was inaccurate and slippery. It was one of the biggest complaints from users. But for 2020, Apple introduced new "scissor-style" keys for more comfortable, accurate typing.

Even longtime Windows 10 users have made the switch to Mac because of its ease of use and wide range of apps available — over 1.8 million compared to less than half that at the Microsoft Store.

What reviewers say

Amazon shoppers have given this Mac an incredible 4.8-star overall rating.

“The screen is beautiful. The Magic Keyboard feels very nice and a definite upgrade from the previous butterfly mechanism,” wrote a happy five-star reviewer. “For day-to-day use of browsing, Netflix, Zoom calls and presentations, you would most likely never hear the fan nor feel the heat from underneath your keyboard.”

"The battery life is phenomenal," said a fan. "I can take it on the go and use it all day with no issues at all. ... The performance is spectacular. It runs circles around anything else I have that’s Windows-based. ... For the majority of people, this is going to be their go-to laptop. What you get for an entry-level Mac is stellar."

One fan quipped, "The M1 chip is amazing and a miracle. This little chip can play some of the most CPU demanding games. Cities Skylines played phenomenally without any lag or freezing. This MacBook Air is very powerful. The downside to it is that it doesn't have a cooling fan and one cooling fan in it would make a major improvement." (Note: One easy way to keep your laptop cool: Add a stand, like this No. 1 bestseller, also on sale.)

Lightweight and powerful with a jaw-dropping display, this Macbook can go anywhere. On sale in this gorgeous rose gold shade as well as slate gray and silver.

Aside from their fab price (over 40% off!), we love the real-time power readout on the front of the case of these earbuds, making it so much easier than pulling out your phone and swiping to find out how much charge is left. The top number shows how much juice is in the case, while the two smaller indicators show readings for each bud. Pretty smart! But that's not their only innovative feature: These buds have everything you'd expect in a quality pair. On-ear controls let you answer calls, skip songs and activate Siri. They also have multiple sound modes to pick from. Nearly 8,000 five-star fans can't be wrong, right?

Simply fill the reservoir with water, pop in the K-Cup of your choice, select the size of your cup and — presto — java will appear in your mug in under a minute. True to its name, this slim model also won't take up much counter space. We've yet to see this model dip below $50, and if you're someone who enjoys a hot bev (or two) on a daily basis, it'll pay for itself with all the time it'll save you. We recommend snagging it while it's 50% off!

This No. 1 bestselling, TikTok-famous compact carpet cleaner packs a punch, especially considering it weighs less than 10 pounds! Its powerful suction can be used to remove stains not just from rugs, but furniture and even car upholstery, too. Plus, it comes with a self-cleaning hose tool and a bottle of Bissell's Spot & Stain with Febreeze. We haven't seen this viral cleaner priced much lower than it currently is in years (it was only a few bucks cheaper back in July for Prime Day) — and when you consider how much money it'll save you in professional cleaning bills (and replacement furniture), it'll pay for itself in just a few uses.

The user-friendly touchscreen lights up while in use and features time and temperature settings (from 90-400 degrees Fahrenheit), as well as four functions: Air Fry, Roast, Reheat and Dehydrate, the latter of which is a cool feature that isn't always included with air fryers.
