Black Friday is just under 3 weeks away, but that’s not stopping retailers from showing off their discounted lineup. Some major retailers are having their Black Friday sales now just to try and beat out the competition.
Currently, Amazon & Best Buy are having the latest Macbook Air at a pretty decent discount. $200 off the original price! Apple doesn’t usually have discounts on their main lineup so it’s a nice deal.
If you were in the market for a Macbook Air or you just want something light & portable this is a great opportunity to snag a nice deal for pre-Black Friday, Black Friday.
Macbook Air (2019)
A beautiful and sleek design that’s simple and just works. The pure aluminium casing is what makes macs feel so premium and solid on the outside, but the insides are important too.
Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 617
Hard Drive: 128GB PCIe SSD
Screen: 13.3″ 2560×1600 Retina Display
What’s in the Air?
For the $899.99 price point, you’re not going to be getting a high spec’d computer, but you will get something decent. An 8th gen i5 processor that runs at a low 1.6GHz to save power, but can boost up to 3.6GHz when you need it. The integrated Intel UHD Graphics 617 will run your monitor and external displays beautifully. It can accept 2 4K monitors as well as an external GPU with the thunderbolt 3 port if you need extra power. It’s capped out at 8GB of RAM, and the internal storage capacity is a 128GB PCIe SSD so you know you’ll have quick access to everything on it.
If you’re looking for something light, thin, and can last you all day, this is the way to go. The price point is great with the $200 discount at Amazon & Best Buy. It’s not going to be a gaming powerhouse laptop, but if you aren’t doing any heavy processing or playing massive games you’ll be fine. As a commuter laptop you really can’t beat it. This is something you can take to work or school and not have to worry about it dying or carrying around a heavy laptop.
