Forget the M3 MacBook Air, the 15-inch M2 model is £300 off

Apple has just introduced the MacBook Air M3, but this deal represents an awesome opportunity to snag the 15-inch MacBook Air M2 for a bargain price.

Amazon is offering an Apple MacBook Air 15-inch with M2 for just £1,099. That’s £300 off the £1,399 RRP for the 256GB model.

The consensus around the M3 models thus far is that, although Apple is promising some decent processing power and graphical upgrades, there’s still plenty of value in the M2 models.

That’s borne out with this deal on the MacBook Air 15-inch M2, which brings the price down to easily the lowest recorded on Amazon for a laptop that only went on sale last summer. You can see how steep the drop off is in the Keepa graph, which keeps tabs on price histories, below. There are a selection of colours to choose from, including silver, space grey, starlight and midnight.

Bigger means better


  • Thin and light with a huge screen
  • The M2 remains a powerful chip for everyday tasks
  • Not a huge price increase over the 13-inch model


  • Annoying port placement
  • Internal upgrades are expensive
  • M2 not a massive jump over M1

The long awaited larger MacBook Air model lived up to the billing according to our reviewer. He gave it a 4.5 star score for the execution of the vision. He said it was great for everyday tasks due to the M2 power and the long battery life.

He concluded: “The MacBook Air 15-inch is fast, well-designed, has a good screen and excellent battery life. It ticks just about every box I look for when recommending a laptop.”

We’re yet to complete a full review of the M3 version of the MacBook Air 15-inch, but the gains seem iterative enough to ensure that the savings you make by picking up the M2 could offset any performance improvements.
