It doesn’t happen often, but the Apple MacBook Air — the latest model — is now discounted for $999 on Amazon. This is a $200 savings!
This 2018 model is the first MacBook Air to include a pristine 13.3-inch Retina display for eye-popping and vivid images and videos, while it lives up to its namesake with a thinner and more lightweight body than previous models.
Equipped with 128GB of storage and 8GB of memory with up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge, you’ll spend more time online watching YouTube, reading the latest news on your favorite news websites, and staying in contact with your loved ones via FaceTime.
Most importantly, this MacBook Air even has a 4.5 out of 5 star customer rating on Amazon with over 300 glowing reviews.
“This is my first ever mac,” Amazon customer El Zorro writes. “I've had lots of pc's in the past and I can't believe how fast, smooth, comfortable the new MacBook Air is. It is very portable, easy to pack/carry and lightweight. It boots up in seconds, compared to the several minutes it takes my pc to boot. The retina screen is super crisp - great for photo editing and viewing. The keys are perfectly placed and weighted. It may sound weird to say, but I actually make fewer typing errors on this keyboard. Trackpad is large and intuitive. Performance is fast and smooth. This is easily the best computer purchase of my life.”
If you’re a first time computer user, or looking to buy a laptop for a new college student, the Apple MacBook Air is one to consider for its ease of use and its pick-up-and-go approach to computing and getting connected to the internet.
The reviews quoted above reflect the most recent versions at the time of publication.
