I'm finding it really hard NOT to buy an M1 MacBook Air at 26% off!

I don't even really need another MacBook, but the M1 MacBook Air – the last version with the gorgeous wedge-shaped design – has gotten even cheaper for the last day of Amazon's 2-day Prime Day event.

The newer MacBook Air is a spectacular machine for sure, but I personally prefer the aesthetic of the previous one and the M1 chip is no slouch either. The M1 is so good at managing memory that the 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD storage is enough for day-to-day work with MacOS in entirely silent operation. It got 7547 on Geekbench 5 – not too bad at all (and very close to the chunkier 13-inch MacBook Pro M1).
