Apple’s 2020 13-inch MacBook Air was among the first group of computers to be powered by the company’s M1 processor.

Of all the school supplies I used in college, my laptop is the tool I trust the most – more than textbooks, more than binders, more than pencils or pens. (And that was before the pandemic brought distance learning to the general public!)

So, if you’ve been thinking about investing in a solid computer that will take you through your college education and beyond, now is a good time to guarantee you a low price on Best Buy’s latest 13-inch MacBook Air for $ 800 – complete with the powerful M1 chip, 8 GB of memory and a fast 256 GB SSD for storage.

This high-end laptop typically costs $ 1,000. But Best Buy cut $ 200. The retailer had lowered it to an all-time high of $ 750, but it’s still an incredible offer right now. (It even beats Apple’s famous education prize: $ 899 plus free AirPods, which cost around $ 120 these days.)

Here’s how you can score this legendary affair:

  1. First of all, head to The Best Buy student hub.

  2. Press the “Register Now” button to the right of the “Student Offers” logo.

  3. You will be prompted to sign in to your Best Buy account. (If you don’t have a Best Buy account yet, tap “Create Account.” It’s free.)

  4. You will then be prompted to fill in your name, date of birth, college, expected graduation date, and phone number.

  5. Once you’ve all signed up for student offers, move on to listing for MacBook Air.

  6. You will see that the price is $ 900. Check the box below the price to apply the $ 100 student discount and reduce it even further to $ 800.
