If you are in the market for a new MacBook Air, you would like to know that B&H Photo is currently selling the 128 GB input levelfor only $ 999, down from the normal retail price at $ 1,199. That means you get it to the final price of the old MacBook Air (although discounts for that model are becoming more common). Do it quickly, as the deal ends on December 29 at 11:59. East.
Here are the full details:
- 8 GB RAM
- 128 GB SSD
- 13.3 inch 2560 x 1600 Retina IPS display  Integrated Intel UHD Graphics 617
- Two USB-C ports
Fortunately, B & H's "Deal Zone" savings extend beyond this 128 GB model. You can also take $ 200 on the 256GB modelwhich brings the price $ 1,199 (down from $ 1,399). You can also take $ 100 of the 512GB model which brings the price to $ 1,499 (down from $ 1,599).
B & H also sells the 128 GB model with 16 GB RAMwith a $ 100 discount, which brings the price to $ 1,299 (down from $ 1,399). Honestly, though, this feels a bit overkill. If you have 16 GB of RAM, it is quite safe to assume that you will perform intensive tasks such as playing games or editing video, and honestly, it is hardly possible with only 128 GB of RAM.
I hesitate to recommend the 128GB model with the 8GB configuration unless you just plan to use the MacBook Air for writing or internet research, as it is increasingly difficult to make something with a laptop with that kind of storage.
That said, I admire the new MacBook Air. Sure, the keyboard changed and the body lacks wealth ports on the previous model, but I like to use the bright Retina display and the convenience of the new Touch ID integration. For that matter, the "Butterfly" keyboard on this model, the sport membrane Apple introduced with the 2018 15-inch MacBook Pro, which keeps particles from falling under the keys and results in a quieter writing experience. When combined with the slightly prone keyboard, which I always miss when using the flat-screened MacBook Pros, I find it really pretty great for writing.

"If you are familiar with the Macintosh 12-inch MacBook, the new MacBook Air instantly uses it to be a slightly updated and upscale version of that model, if you have waited for many years for Apple to finally imagine the MacBook Air in a way that would revolutionize the thin and lightweight portable market, you will be disappointed to find that it has just been brought up to the standard of other modern Mac laptops , with all the good and bad going with it.
