Apple’s 2018 MacBook Air is cheaper than ever at Micro Center (via Slickdeals). Normally $1,199, it’s now $799 for the base model, which has an 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and 128GB of storage. If you want to double the storage (but sadly not double the RAM) that model now costs $999.
The latest MacBook Air revision for 2019 improves on last year’s version in subtle ways, according to our review. This year’s model has a True Tone display, allowing the screen to automatically adjust the color temperature based on the ambient lighting, and model starts at $1,099, which is $100 cheaper than last year’s base model sold for. If those differences don’t sell you, Micro Center’s deal is probably worth taking up.
