The M3 MacBook Air (review) has only been in the market for a few months, but you can now score great deals on these sleek Apple laptops. Major retailers like Amazon and B&H have the two models of the M3 MBA for up to $150 off. Specifically, the 15-inch model has the more attractive offer, which can be had for $1149 after the combined $100 price reduction and $49 coupon.

But if you prefer the more compact 13-inch M3 MacBook Air, the base model is down to $999 from $1099. That's still a sizeable saving considering it's the latest model and marks the new all-time low.

What makes the M3 MacBook Air a worthy laptop purchase

Although there is already a more capable M3 MacBook Pro (review), its premium price is a major shortcoming for many. Hence, the MacBook Air should do well with most people, especially since it has received a faster M3 chipset.

The M3 MacBook Air's exterior is unchanged from its predecessors, which is still a good thing. It's lightweight, which tips the scale at 3.3 lbs for the 15-inch model, and it's incredibly thin too, making it easy to stow in your backpack. The display in either model packs Retina resolution and 500 nits of brightness, they're bright and output accurate colors.

Despite the sleekness, it packs a serious power, thanks to the M3 chipset. Apple says the chip is 35 percent faster compared to the M1 in terms of processing, while a bigger jump of 65 percent is obtained in the graphics section. The more efficient silicon also helps retain the solid battery life in the machine, which easily last more than a day.

In addition to the more powerful chipset, Apple also gave it support for connecting two external monitors via the two USB-C Thunderbolt ports, although as long as you have to close the lid. That's surely a massive improvement for productivity. You also get a MagSafe charging and analog audio jack on top of the USB.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
