The new MacBook Air 2022 with its M2 chip is just 4 weeks old, but we've already seen the first price drop on the new laptop. Amazon dropped running a discount late last week, and it's still running, reducing the price of the base model by $100. That means you can get the 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD MacBook Air 2022 from $1,199 to $1,099

And this time, those in the UK don't miss out either. In fact, it's just sweetened the deal. It had reduced the price of both the 256GB and 512GB configurations of the new laptop by £50, but right now you can save £71 on the 256GB MacBook Air 2022 – reduced from £1,249 to £1,178 and save £89 off the 512GB configuration – now £1,460

The MacBook Air has long been one of our favourite laptops, and the new MacBook Air 2022 offers a boost in power thanks to Apple's new M2 chip. While it's not as powerful as the last MacBook Pros, it's light, highly portable and it can easily handle what most people need from a laptop. See our full MacBook Air (M2, 2022) review for the full details of what we thought of the laptop.
