Amazon today is offering the 512GB versions of the M1 MacBook Pro and M1 MacBook Air at all-time low prices. Starting with the M1 MacBook Air, you can get the 512GB model in Gold at $1,149.00, down from $1,249.00. This is a match of the lowest price we've ever tracked on this notebook, and it's also being offered at B&H Photo.

Apple updated the MacBook Air in November 2020 with the new Apple M1 chip, which has an 8-core CPU, a 7- or 8-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine for machine learning. These updates brought about improved performance, better battery life, and more. There's also a 256GB model, but we aren't seeing any notable discounts this week.



Amazon also has Apple's 512GB M1 MacBook Pro on sale at $1,299.99, down from $1,499.00. This is a match of the best price we've ever seen on this MacBook Pro, and it'll be applied to your order after you head to the checkout screen. There, Amazon has a $99.01 automatic coupon that will drop the price of the notebook down to the record low deal.



You can find the best monthly deals on all new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air notebooks in our "Best Deals" guide. Be sure to visit the guide and bookmark it if you're on the hunt for a new Apple notebook; we'll be updating it weekly as we discover new MacBook offers across the web.

I feel bad for anyone buying these, then realizes 8GB of RAM isn't enough for them (which will be most people, but not everyone).
That's more than enough for the average office worker or student.
Son has the base Air and it out performs his Win HP laptop.

I'm probably going to make the switch to a Mac myself

What's the purpose of these secret in-checkout discounts? Is it so that places like BestBuy don't have to price match since the price on the product page is different?

I manage over 200 machine. The average office worker isn't happy with 8GB, so we now have a min 16GB policy. It's especially important when trying to get a long time out of a machine. I'm sure it's much faster than the HP though. I have a friend using my 2012 with 8GB of RAM because her new $800 HP is awful. My 2011 with 16GB blow it away though (which is why I gave her the 2012).

I remember New Egg stating something about it, I think they have to do it that way as a loophole on MSRP agreements.
