As tempting as it is, compared to buying directly from Apple where it's £999, you can find a better offer from the Apple retailer KRCS, which is selling the same model for £899 – a full £100 discount.

You'll have to be quick though as only the silver option remains in stock at this price. Shop all MacBook Air laptops at KRCS.

The new MacBook Air received an update earlier this year with several improvements in tote, including better performance, a strong 11-hour battery life and a back-lit Magic Keyboard that's quiet and much more comfortable compared to past generations.

The Air 2020 is an ideal purchase for students who want a laptop that doubles up as an entertainment hub. The gorgeous Retina display on the new MacBook Air boasts a 2560 x 1600 resolution, and a smart True Tone colour temperature feature automatically adjusts screen colour and intensity according to the ambient light.

Head to KRCS to see its 13in MacBook Air offer now. Delivery is free.
