The best time to buy an Apple MacBook Air? Right now.

Over at Amazon, you can score this Apple MacBook Air (early-2020) for $900, thanks to the retail giant’s ‘secret’ sale.

Currently, the MacBook Air is on sale for $949, or $50 off its list price. However, Amazon takes an additional $49 off at checkout. And voilà! Altogether that’s $99 off and the lowest price we’ve ever seen on this model, which was only released in March.

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.

But what really separates the MacBook Air from previous models is its new and improved Magic Keyboard. In the past, Apple 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 that are more comfortable and accurate for typing.

“The screen is beautiful. The Magic Keyboard feels very nice and a definite upgrade from the previous butterfly mechanism,” writes 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.”

Even longtime Windows 10 users are making the switch to Mac because of its ease of use and wide range of apps available—over 1.8 million compared to Microsoft Store’s more than 669,000.

“This is an excellent computer with the best keyboard (by far) I’ve used. The trackpad is amazing, especially if you’ve grown accustomed to subpar trackpads on Windows computers. Apple does the trackpad better than anyone hands down. The speakers are amazing. I’ve never heard a laptop with such good sound quality,” adds an Amazon shopper. “It is a snappy computer with everything I need for personal computer usage. In a word: Perfection.”

Choose from Space Gray, Silver and Rose Gold.
