For Cdiscount sales, the price of the MacBook Air M1 is in freefall

For Cdiscount sales, the price of the MacBook Air M1 is in freefall

For the second week of the sales, there are always good deals, especially in the computer department. At Cdiscount, for example, it is possible to equip yourself with Apple‘s excellent MacBook Air M1 for only 999 euros instead of 1,129 euros. That is a nice reduction of 130 euros in total. As a reminder, this model was released at the end of 2020 and it currently represents the least expensive gateway to having an Apple machine.

If you want a recent laptop running Mac OS, then this MacBook Air M1 will be perfect. Note that this is the variant with a 256 GB SSD. For the model with 512 GB of storage and 8 GB RAM, you are also entitled to a nice discount of 100 euros. Thus, its price drops from 1,399 euros to 1,299 euros.

This Cdiscount sale is timely for people wanting to equip themselves at a lower cost and a bargain since Apple never offers discounts on its products, whether on its official website or in its physical stores. Also, in case you are not sure if this MacBook is the model for you, you still have a safety net with the money-back guarantee.

Indeed, Cdiscount is obliged to give you a legal withdrawal period of 14 days. During this period, you can return the MacBook Air at their expense and receive a full refund in return. As often, this deal isn’t meant to last forever, which means don’t wait too long if you want to take advantage of it.

Thanks to this exceptional offer offered by Cdiscount during the summer sales, you have the possibility of equipping yourself with the Apple MacBook Air at prox mini. For this contained price of 999 euros, there is simply no better in terms of value for money on the market. To come to its technical characteristics, this MacBook Air M1 has a superb WQXGA definition screen (2560 x 1600 pixels) with a diagonal of 13.3 inches.

In an ultra-compact format, you can therefore take it everywhere with you without it being too noticeable. This tile is ideal for professional use but also for entertainment. It provides top-of-the-range visual comfort, with faithful colorimetric rendering, excellent viewing angles and a high contrast ratio.

Under the hood we find the Apple M1 house chip which offers excellent performance, while being energy efficient. As a reminder or for information, the M1 chip is made up of a high-performance 8-core CPU. To give you an idea, the gain compared to the previous generation of MacBook Air is immense, with a speed multiplied by 3.5.

Everything is accompanied by an 8 GB RAM memory and an SSD with a capacity of 256 GB in this case. If that’s not enough, you can opt for the higher configuration with the 512 GB SSD, or use an external storage solution or even in the cloud. With such a configuration, this MacBook Air M1 is ready to take on any challenge you throw at it.

Its keyboard coupled with the huge trackpad offer an optimal user experience. For the software part, it is Mac OS in its version Mac OS Big Sur 11.0 which is present on this model. Other advantages allow this MacBook Air M1 to stand out from its main competitors. We can for example mention Touch ID, which, using a simple key, allows you via your fingerprint to perform a large number of actions without having to type your password each time.

It is also good to remember that Apple computers have a large number of features that are exclusive to them. Among them, the keyboard shortcuts that save a lot of time. Not to mention that Apple’s operating system is one of the most intuitive and successful on the market. Very powerful but also very enduring, this MacBook Air M1 offers an incredible autonomy that can, depending on use, reach up to 18 hours. Rather excellent then.

As a reminder, Apple’s MacBook Air M1 is on sale at 999 euros instead of 1,129 euros during the summer sales. The stocks being quite limited, it will be necessary to act quickly to reserve one before the stock runs out.

MacBook Pro 13″ M2 review: new hearts in an old body

Two machines announced, only one available… Apple does not make it easy for those who hesitate to choose their next M2 laptop. While waiting for the refurbished MacBook Air scheduled for next month, we can cut our teeth with this MacBook Pro with a seen and revised design, but with a new processor. A curious coupling which, at the end of the test, leaves some questions still open. Explanations…

An air of deja, deja vu

Presentations will be quick with this 2022 model of the 13″ MacBook Pro since it uses the same skin as the previous model and others before it. Rather than pointing out the similarities with the 2020 M1, let’s first see what changes.

Why the new MacBook Air deserves your attention more than the MacBook Pro M2

You probably already know if you’ve read our review of the MacBook Pro 13 M2, this new model is one too many. Unchanged or almost since 2016, this new iteration has been resisting for many months in Apple’s offer. For this, it is content to evolve only on the technical level, first with the addition of an M1 chip at the end of 2020, then with the appearance on its motherboard of the brand new M2 chip this year.

This unique novelty is certainly interesting from the point of view of performance, but it does not weigh enough against a MacBook Air which completely changes its formula. Let’s see point by point how the MacBook Air will probably be better than its cousin when it is available in France.

Novelties galore

Let’s start with the obvious: the design of the MacBook Air, which has been completely redesigned to offer many new features, some of which are directly inherited from the MacBook Pro 14 and 16 (launched at the end of last year).

The new chassis, thinner and more modern

Unlike the MacBook Pro 13 M2, which unfortunately stands out for its aesthetic inertia, the new MacBook Air swaps its old chassis for a new, much refined aluminum casing (11.3 mm against 16.1 mm previously, and 1.24 kg only on the scale). There are also softer and rounded lines, four large round feet, as on the MacBook Pro 14 and 16, and four colors, some of which are new (Silver, Stellar Light, Space Gray and Midnight).

The resized screen… but with a notch

Winner on portability and format (it is thinner and lighter than the MacBook Pro 13 M2), the MacBook Air is also on the display surface. If we stay here too on a very classic Retina LCD IPS panel, the latter gains in brightness: Apple mentions 100 nits more than on the old MacBook Air. It also gains in screen occupancy rate, with a diagonal of 13.6 inches, against 13.3 inches so far. The display surface is therefore slightly larger and the edges are clearly cropped… but we now have to deal with an ugly notch installed on the top of the slab.

Flash sale: at this price, the MacBook Air M1 will make you dream

The MacBook Air M1 is the first Apple computer to be equipped with the chip developed by the prestigious American brand. Powerful, solid and light at the same time, it combines the qualities. This is even the case for its price with this special offer unveiled by Cdiscount as part of the sales.

With this immediate reduction signed Cdiscount, the MacBook Air M1 from Apple is available for 999 euros instead of 1,199 euros, i.e. a discount of 130 euros on this reference laptop. With more than 50 orders in progress, it may be out of stock in a few hours, you better not wait any longer.

While the MacBook Air M1 has received similar discounts in the past, these remain rare. Cdiscount had not offered Apple’s laptop at such a low price for several months. Once it’s out of stock, you’ll probably have to wait that long to be eligible for it again.

Why choose the MacBook Air M1?

As we know, Apple products like the MacBook Air M1 are rarely subject to discounts. This simply never happens with the official brand, because it favors its premium image rather than discounts. Fortunately, some online merchants such as the French e-merchant Cdiscount have the privilege of being able to display occasional discounts on these references.

If you fall for the MacBook Air M1 on Cdiscount, know that the advantages are exactly the same as those of Apple… Except that the price is much better.
