Today’s Best Deals: Apple MacBook Air, Ring Fit Adventure, and more

Ars Technica

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s another Dealmaster time. Our latest roundup of the best tech deals from around the web includes a solid price for Apple’s M1-based MacBook Air, the entry-level version of which is currently down to $850 on Amazon. You should see a notice of an additional $100 off discount on the Amazon listing page, with the full discount applied in your cart.

Far from some short drops to $800 last year, that’s the lowest price we tracked for this notebook version — which includes 8GB of base RAM and 256GB of SSD storage — from a major retailer. The deal came in at $149 less than Apple’s MSRP and about $90 less than the average street price we’ve seen online in recent months.

Note that this deal applies to the MacBook Air launched in 2020 and running on the Apple M1 chip, not the model that arrived earlier this year with a revamped design and faster M2 SoC. We generally recommend the latter to most people in the market for a new MacBook today, as it offers moderate performance (largely on the graphic side of things), a brighter screen with more real estate (albeit with a “grooved” design), a MagSafe connector, And a much better camera and sound system for video calls. Entry level version of who – which The notebook also retails today for $1,099, which is equivalent to Apple’s $100 USD MSRP.

These are still good ways above the current bargain price of the M1 MacBook Air, and the older model is still a good buy for those who need a competent Mac laptop as little as possible. Despite being two years old, the M1 chip is still more than capable of handling web browsing, word processing, and other casual everyday tasks with few issues. And while the thick bezels and just two USB-C ports aren’t perfect, the notebook itself remains sturdy and lightweight, with an excellent keyboard and control panel, a still-powerful display, and an impressive battery life of over 14 hours each. charge in our test.

Aside from the medium port selection, the M1 Air’s main drawbacks are that it can’t connect to multiple external displays simultaneously, and most compelling, the 720p webcam is just plain bad. But if you want a Mac for essentials on a (relative) budget, this is a good value.

If you don’t need a new laptop, our roundup also includes a low-profile take on the popular exercise game. A ring fit for adventure For Nintendo Switch, a low-key part of an excellent Action-RPG Forbidden horizon west For PS4 and PS5, a deal that brings digital copies of Ars’ favorite sci-fi novel Peace be upon you, Mary project Down to $3.
