Apple’s MacBook Air M1 Returns to Regular Price Thanks to Black Friday

The price of the powerful MacBook Air M1 recently increased to 1,199 euros. Fortunately, it is now possible to find it on sale: Boulanger indeed offers its 8 GB RAM + 256 GB version at 999 euros.

It has not escaped anyone: Apple has increased the prices of most of its devices. The MacBook Air M1, yet unveiled two years ago, was no exception. Fortunately, promotions make it possible to reduce this base price, which is now very (too?) high. This is for example the case at the moment, since the first ultraportable from Apple to embed the first generation in-house chip now benefits from a reduction of 200 euros.

The MacBook Air M1 is…

  • A very powerful M1 chip
  • A silent laptop without fans
  • An enduring MacBook thanks to a 15-hour battery life

Initially displayed at 1,199 euros, Apple’s MacBook Air M1 (2020), in its 8 GB RAM + 256 GB SSD version, is now offered at 999 euros at Boulanger. You can find it at the same price at Cdiscount.

Where to buy

Apple MacBook Air 2020 M1 at the best price?

An unchanged design, but still working

It is not with the MacBook Air M1 that Apple has bet on a radical change of look in 2020: we will therefore find, on this laptop, the aluminum chassis that could be found on its predecessor, as well as exemplary finishes that have made the signature of the apple brand. This MacBook Air M1 also includes a 13-inch Retina True Tone screen, compatible with a very wide color gamut (P3). Creatives will particularly appreciate this screen for indulging in video editing or photo processing, even if the most demanding will still prefer to turn to a more powerful MacBook Pro.

The M1 chip, a small revolution

The MacBook Air M1 was the first to ship the Apple brand’s in-house chip, Apple M1, based on an ARM architecture. In 2020, the Cupertino company had indeed decided to get rid of Intel Core. This change imposed a mandatory rewrite of applications, but thanks to the Rosetta 2 emulator, your old X86 software can still be used. Otherwise, the 8-core CPU of this new generation processor thus promises, according to the brand, a power 3.5 times greater than an old model under Intel. As for its 7-core GPU, graphics performance would be multiplied by 5. With such a configuration, office tasks will run smoothly, as well as more creative and professional tasks such as video or photo editing. And if the M1 chip has since been improved to give birth to the M2 chip, the first of the name still defends itself very well.

To run all this, users of the MacBook Air M1 can count on great endurance, since autonomy has been considerably increased: the Cupertino company indicates a 50% increase compared to the previous generation. You can, in theory, hold a day’s work without falling stranded. Another advantage: this MacBook Air M1 consumes less than the old models, which allowed the brand to do without fans. Goodbye to the machine that blows intermittently, and hello to the silent ultraportable.
