We can still recall the exact moment that Steve Jobs pulled the first-generation MacBook Air out of that manila envelope on stage during his Macworld keynote presentation back in 2008. People couldn’t believe it. This sleek new Apple laptop was impossibly slim, and that gorgeous silver aluminum made everything else on the market look boring and cheap. It was a sight to behold, and it would end up reshaping the entire laptop market and spawning a new category of ultra-slim laptops.

In order to get the MacBook Air that slim back then, Apple had to make several big compromises where performance is concerned. Of course, we have come a very long way over the past 12 years and Apple doesn’t have to sacrifice performance anymore to get its MacBook Air laptops so thin. Take the current-generation model, for example.

The newest MacBook Air packs a dual-core 8th-Generation Intel Core i5 processor, Intel UHD Graphics 617, 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of lightning-fast SSD storage, Touch ID security, two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, stereo speakers, and Apple’s stunning signature Retina display with True Tone. Best of all, perhaps, is the fact that the MacBook Air costs so much less now than it did back in 2008 when you had to spend nearly $3,000 to get a build with an SSD! That’s especially true today because Amazon is running a killer one-day deal on the newest MacBook Air with 256GB of SSD storage. You’ll pay $1,299 for this build in an Apple store, but it’s only $999 right now on Amazon — that’s a new all-time low!

That’s an absolute steal for this fantastic laptop, and it’s a huge $300 discount compared to what you’d pay elsewhere. But there’s one more deal you need to know about as well. If you don’t need quite that much power and performance, you can pick up the previous-generation MacBook Air right now on Amazon for even less. The model with a 1.8 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, Intel HD Graphics 6000, 128GB of SSD storage, and 8GB of RAM still sells for $999, but Amazon’s offering a $249 discount today so you can pick one up for only $749.99.

You really can’t go wrong with either one of these excellent deals. The $300 discount on the newest MacBook Air model is obviously the more rare deal, and we seriously doubt we’ll see it priced this low again anytime soon. The previous-generation model is still powerful and nearly $250 less though, so buyers on a budget should definitely consider it.
