Apple is now selling a new 128-gigabyte Apple Silicon MacBook Air through its U.S. Education Institution program.

The base MacBook Air model made available in the Apple Store and through resellers features a 256-gigabyte SSD. The new smaller model serves to cut costs even further for schools looking to get a MacBook into a student's hands.

The deal was spotted by Reddit user dduci9y, who found the deal on the November 10 Apple U.S. Education Institution - Hardware and Software Price List.

To take advantage of the $779 price tag, a United States educational institution must purchase the model in multiples of five units. Space gray, gold, and silver units are available for purchase.

The 128-gigabyte M1 MacBook Air isn't the only model available to purchase in bulk, either. Schools can also buy them in configurations of 256- and 512-gigabytes, for $879 and $1,129 each, respectively.
