Apple’s most affordable laptop is dropping its price on New Year’s Eve

This is not the first reduction we see for the MacBook Air equipped with the M1 chip, but thanks to a promotional code it is back under the symbolic bar of 1000 euros. An interesting offer when most Apple products see their prices increase.

With the arrival of the new MacBook Air 2022 M2, the old model, the MacBook Air M1, saw its price increase by 70 euros to now appear at 1199 euros. Nevertheless, it remains the brand’s most affordable laptop in the current catalog. And even in light of the sequel, it is still a good investment to make if you want to take advantage of MacOS, especially since it is again under 1000 euros thanks to this offer for Cdiscount customers.

What to remember about MacBook Air 2020

  • Impeccable design
  • Still great performance with the Apple M1 chip
  • A durable machine (more than 15 hours)

First launched at 1129 euros, then shown at 1,199 euros on the official website, the MacBook Air 2020 M1 is back to 999 euros on Cdiscount using the code MAC50CDAV. It’s always good to take, especially since promotions are rare on Apple products.

The most affordable MacBook

On the 2020 vintage of the MacBook Air, the design remains unchanged. It retains exemplary finish, with a sober and elegant aesthetic. We are entitled to an aluminum chassis as well as a backlit keyboard with Magic Keyboard – more comfortable to use than the butterfly keyboard. If the new MacBook Air 2022 offers a 20% more compact design and loses a few grams, the 2020 model is also easy to transport with its 13-inch diagonal and its light weight of 1.29 kilos. You can also count on the presence of Touch ID to unlock the device with one finger.

On the front there is a 13-inch Retina True Tone display, compatible with a very wide color gamut (P3). Creatives will especially appreciate this screen to indulge in video editing or photo processing, although the most demanding still prefer to turn to a more powerful MacBook Pro.

A flea that still has some in its stomach

If Apple has now switched to the M2 chip, which should again undermine Intel, the one proposed in 2020, the M1 chip based on an ARM architecture, still defends itself very well. With this ultrabook, office tasks will run smoothly, as well as more creative and professional tasks such as video or photo editing. All this in absolute silence, because this model has no fan, and will therefore be less noisy than before. In comparison, processor performance is up to 3.5 times better than Intel, and graphics performance is up to 5 times faster.

To run all this, users of the MacBook Air M1 can count on great endurance, as the autonomy has been significantly increased: the Cupertino company indicates a 50% increase compared to the previous generation. In theory, you can last a day’s work without running aground. Note that this MacBook Air has a 256GB SSD, which is advertised as twice as fast as the previous generation, and 8GB of RAM to complete the package.
