That discount brings the 128GB version down to just $999 and the 256GB model down to $1,199.
The 2018 MacBook Air, released in November, earned an “excellent” rating in PCMag’s review. We praised its “vivid” Retina display, “very comfortable Force Touch trackpad,” “excellent battery life,” and more.
Weighing just 2.75 pounds and measuring 0.61 inches at its thickest point, it’s perfect for taking on the go. In our battery rundown test, which involves playing a 720p local video file at 50 percent screen brightness with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth off, it lasted for more than 13 hours.
“I never once had to plug in the MacBook Air during a weekend of use at several hours per day,” reviewer Tom Brant wrote.
On Amazon, the 2018 MacBook Air has an average rating of 4.5 out of five stars with more than 300 customer reviews.
Apple itself stopped selling the 2018 MacBook Air this week, but you can grab the ultraportable at a discount at Amazon before supplies run out. Don’t miss this chance to grab the 128GB version for just $999 or the 256GB model for $1,199. Both are available with free shipping.
