The M3 MacBook Air line has been on the market for just under a month and a half and we’re already seeing some pretty impressive deals.

Last week, that was in the form of the 15-inch variant dropping to its lowest price ever (it’s since come back up some). And now, as of April 19, the 13.6-inch M3 MacBook Air is on sale for a record-low price of $999, with both Amazon and B&H shaving $100 off the laptop’s $1,099 list price. At both retailers, you’ll only find this deal on the midnight colorway with the entry-level specs of 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD.

Compared to the M2 Air, the M3 doesn’t look all that different from the outside. But as the adage goes, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The M3 chip gives you a zippier and more future-proof experience when running multiple tabs and apps. Though the port situation remains the same (and as sparse) as it was on the M2 — two Thunderbolt/USB, one MagSafe charging port, and one 3.5mm audio jack — the M3 Air has dual-display support, meaning that when the laptop is closed you can use up to two external displays (with a keyboard and mouse setup). When our friends at PCMag (also owned by Ziff Davis) tested out the 13.6-inch variant, they were also impressed by the all-day battery life and overall sturdy feel of this ultraportable laptop. (It is worth noting, however, that they tested a model with more memory and built-in storage).

Basically, for anyone who isn’t quite ready to jump up to the power (and price tag) of the MacBook Pro, the Air is a wonderfully slim alternative. Newer MacBooks can often stay in the $50 off range for at least their first couple months on the market, so we’re pleasantly surprised to see retailers deviate with the M3 Air, making it an even more worthwhile laptop to grab from the get-go.

If you’re on the hunt for even more MacBook deals, at the time of writing, 13- and 15-inch M2 MacBook Airs are on sale for up to $400 off.
