Apple’s best-selling AirPods Pro aren’t the only sleek devices that are on sale for Black Friday. The tech-turned-entertainment juggernaut’s 2020 MacBook Air is on sale for just $729 for one day only — so if you fancy yourself a 13.3-inch rose gold laptop, you have only Thanksgiving day to score the 24-hour deal at B&H Video, which is offering a ton of savings through Cyber Monday across all its photo, video and audio departments.
Originally $999 and released in early 2020, the Apple MacBook Air with Retina display is equipped with a 10th gen Intel Core i3 dual-core processor, 8 GB of RAM (memory) and 256 GB SSD (storage), all of which allow the laptop to run smoothly with several apps open at once and deliver stunning graphics tailored to your environment using True Tune technology. It can also support external graphics processors (eGPUs) using its Thunderbolt 3 ports, and the Force Touch trackpad and Magic Keyboard offer comfortable and precise typing. All of this comes in a lightweight gold case made of 100 percent recycled aluminum. And if you’re not gaming or editing, you can get up to 11 hours of wireless browsing battery life and up to 30 days of standby time.
Though it’s not Apple’s latest and greatest laptop (the company released new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros starting at $1,999 and $2,299 in October), nor does it have the M1 chip that came in a later release, the speedy processor and vibrant display still make the 2020 MacBook Air an affordable choice, especially for students and travelers looking for a powerful and lightweight Apple laptop.
An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the laptop has the M1 chip; it has the Intel Core i3 processor.
