You can get a MacBook Air for $699 and a Dell XPS 13 for just $599 – is this the best time ever for laptop buyers?

Both the Apple MacBook Air and the Dell XPS 13 are outstandingly good premium laptops – and both are on sale for some of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen currently.

For example, Walmart currently has the Apple MacBook Air M1 for just $699, which isn’t just a record-low price but a whopping $300 cheaper than the original retail price. Granted, it’s an older 2020 model, but this is a superb deal for a machine that’s still more than capable for most users in 2024.
