Apple rarely discounts its products, opting instead to give out Apple vouchers on Black Friday if you buy something. That’s not the case with Currys, Amazon, and Very though – all three are offering the 2020 MacBook Air for just £799, a saving of £200.

This MacBook Air is the perfect companion for work or home computing, with a pin-sharp 13-inch Retina display, incredibly comfortable full size keyboard for all-day typing, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor built in to the power button, a large trackpad – and it comes in a choice of three colours: space grey, silver, or gold.

Powered by Apple’s excellent M1 chipset, this generation of laptop is famous for its lengthy battery life. We have used this computer all day and then some on a single charge, perfect if you want to get some work done on the move, because you don’t have to worry about plugging in.

Very says this offer price will end on 23 November, so that gives you less than a week to snap up this top-tier laptop for £200 less than it usually costs.’s technology editor Dave Snelling reviewed this very model of MacBook Air, and gave it a rare five-star award, saying it “​​demonstrates what the next generation of laptops will be capable of, thanks to the fast loading times and better battery life.”

He noticed that he had “had some complaints in the past about Apple MacBook’s feeling the heat, but the new Air has stayed very cool on our lap despite being put through some memory-munching tasks.”

“The new M1-powered MacBook Air is an absolute joy to use and there’s another bonus of this processor as its far more efficient,” he said at the time. “In fact, Apple has even been able to ditch the fan from inside the Air, which means your meetings won’t be interrupted by the whirl of the cooling system.”

We can attest to the laptop being totally silent – it never lags, and without the fan you’ll be able to tap away in peace without it sounding like you’re standing in a wind tunnel.

We’ve nothing but good things to say about this MacBook Air, and at £799 it’s the best price you’re going to see on a MacBook all Black Friday season.
