It's a rarity that Apple products ever go on sale, much less for pricing as good as this. But Best Buy is having an amazing sale on MacBooks of all kinds right now, including select MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models. The sale is for everyone, but through the student deals program, some MacBooks see an additional $50 in savings on top of the already discounted prices.
If you don't already have a student account to access the extra savings, set up a My Best Buy account online, then sign up for student deals and the extra savings will be applied to your order at checkout.
When it comes to the best laptops for students, our top pick, hands-down, is the Apple MacBook Air—more specifically, the Apple M1 MacBook Air late 2020 model, which is now down from $999.99 to $899.99, putting an extra $100 back in your pocket. We love the long battery life (up to 13 hours!), amazing M1 processor, and the buttery-smooth trackpad and keyboard. The laptop performed better than other models we tested that were twice as expensive and "shattered the record" for the longest battery life we've seen from a laptop. It's an incredible laptop not just for students, but just about anyone who doesn't require Windows 10 and loves the Apple ecosystem.
