There’s a new M2 MacBook Air launching in July, and we’ve got our eyes on where to buy one and where to get the best deal. We expect that UK reseller KRCS will be one of the first to discount that one, and we expect to see Amazon in the US and UK offering some competitive prices.
Despite the arrival of the new M2 MacBook Air Apple will still continue to sell the $999/£999 M1 MacBook Air, so we expect to continue to see some great deals on that model. However, the 8-Core GPU model of the M1 MacBook Air being discontinued so this could be your last chance to pick up that model. Hopefully there will still be some good deal on that model until stocks dry up.
In this article we share the best deals right now, details of Apple’s price for the MacBook Air, the best places to buy one from, and we have a live table of best prices for the MacBook Air that will always be up-to-date. Read on to get the best price for a MacBook Air.

Best refurbished MacBook Air deals
The deals you will see above are generally from Apple resellers rather than Apple itself – Apple very rarely drops the prices of the Macs it sells. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t save money buying from Apple: if you want to get a discount on a Mac from Apple you can buy a refurbished Mac. It’s not only Apple that sells refurbished Macs, but Apple does offer some great incentives to buy from Apple’s Refurbished Store, so we do recommend taking a look there for great MacBook Air deals.
The Macs in Apple’s refurbished store may be ex-display stock, or they may have been returned to Apple due to a fault, but they are fully reconditioned now and come with a full year’s warranty. It’s not like buying secondhand. Read about buying a refurbished Mac.
We see M1 MacBook Air models in Apple’s Refurbished Store from time-to-time. If none are available when you look we recommend you check again in a month or so, if you can wait that long. Check these links for refurbished MacBook Air in the US and refurbished MacBook Air in the UK You will probably see deals on the older Intel-powered MacBook Air models as well.
A refurbished MacBook Air, 8-core CPU, 8-Core GPU, 512GB SSD, RRP $1,249/£1,249 is often discounted to £1,059/$1,059. That’s a saving of £190/$190 on Apple’s usual price.
A refurbished MacBook Air, 8-core CPU, 7-Core GPU, 512GB SSD, RRP £999/$999 is often discounted to $849/£849. That’s a saving of $150/£150 on Apple’s usual price.
Amazon also has a certified refurbished store for Apple products, but we would advise against buying any products that are older than five years – most of the products we see on the Amazon refurbished store are very old.
