Headlining all of Thursday’s best Apple deals, the latest M1 MacBook Air has received a rare Amazon discount. That’s alongside AirPods Pro on sale from $140 and these ongoing Eve smart home markdowns. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Apple’s 13-inch M1 MacBook Air sees rare Amazon discount

Amazon is now offering Apple’s latest 13-inch M1 MacBook Air 256GB for $929. While you would normally pay $999, Apple’s entry-level M1 machine has been sold out for much of the year. So not only does this discount amount to a rare chance to save, but also a $70 savings while marking the best we’ve seen since back in January.

Lately all of the M1 Mac deals have been focusing on the more prosumer side of Apple stable, with this MacBook Air offer finally delivering a chance to save on its entry-level M1 experience. Centered around a 13-inch Retina display with Apple Silicon under the hood, there’s also a pair of Thunderbolt ports supplemented by Wi-Fi 6 as well as 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. Get a better idea of its performance in our hands-on review.

AirPods Pro now on sale from $140
