Apple’s new M2-powered MacBook Air is on sale for the first time today - The Verge

Apple’s new M2-powered MacBook Air is $100 off today in the starlight (read: gold) colorway. Amazon is also offering steep discounts on the latest Kindle Paperwhite, the Echo Show 15, and a number of Fire tablets.

Heading back to school soon? If you’re in the market for a new laptop, you can save $100 on Apple’s new M2-powered MacBook Air, which is our top pick for most people when it comes to laptops. It’s a relatively small discount, yet it’s also the first we’ve seen on the new MacBook, which launched only last month. Right now, you can buy the “starlight” model at Amazon and B&H Photo with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, an eight-core CPU, and a 30W power brick for $1,099.

Although the new model starts at $200 more than Apple’s last-gen Air, it’s a terrific laptop that makes for a good investment. It does a good job of handling everything a general user needs and even some light gaming. It’s also faster than its predecessor thanks to Apple’s new M2 chip and comes with a 1080p webcam, a lighter build, and a nicer display (that also features a notch). At the same time, the redesigned M2 Air retains many of the features we loved on the M1 model, including MagSafe charging, Touch ID, and all-day battery life.

One thing to keep in mind, however, is that the storage on the base M2 Air is slower than its predecessor’s because it’s stored on a single NAND chip. This means some tasks, like copying large files, might take a while. Plus, port selection is relatively limited, and you can only connect the M2 Air to one external display at a time.
