Top-of-the-line MacBooks don’t come cheap, though. Luckily, Amazon is offering $100 off(Opens in a new window) the computer’s $1,199 retail price when you buy a 256GB model in “Starlight” gold.

Snag this PCMag Editors’ Choice pick for $1,099 and say goodbye to the MacBook Air wedge of the past: The shockingly slim laptop’s body measures a mere 0.44 inches (front and back), and weighs only 2.7 pounds—thanks in large part to a new logic board design.

In addition to hosting the new Apple M2 chip, the logic board now features all components on one side. Add to that a fanless passive cooling design and you get the thinnest, quietest Air yet. It lasted just shy of 17 hours in our testing. 

A dual USB-C/Thunderbolt 4 port, meanwhile, makes room for connecting most cables, though you’ll need an adapter to plug in a standard USB-A or HDMI output. On the bright side, there is a 3.5mm headset jack for connecting headphones or speakers, and room for MagSafe charging.

The company also added a new four-speaker setup that supports Spatial Audio, even without headphones.
