Had the 2018 Air and returned it after 3 days. FaceTime camera, which I use for ~6h daily, on it sucked.

I’m considering getting a iPhone for a family member on my Verizon plan as a gift but wouldn’t give it to them for another few weeks. It would replace their existing Verizon phone. If I buy one now:

- Can I not have it be activated yet?
- Will I begin to pay monthly device payment right away or after activation?

Anyone know when this sale ends?

How can u call yourself Apple, let alone any other company in 2019 while offering a 128gb hard drive.

I bought my first MacBook in 2009.

It had 128 gb.

What’s the big deal?

I lived with a 128GB Macbook Air (2015) for 3 years. Agreed. I never used more than 50% of it. Most of my data is in the cloud and selectively synced with OneDrive. Streamed music and TV. That device was one of my most favorite laptops. Remote into my Windows machine at work to program while on the road? Awesome. 10+ hours of battery life? Awesome.

Wish I had kept it.

That said, I don't support, in 2019, a $950 laptop having a 128GB SSD. It should be 256GB at LEAST.

Wanted the MBA, but no thanks on 128GB.

Wanted it as a travel laptop to edit photos and videos.

My iPad Pro just doesn’t quite cut it.
Maybe with iOS 13.

Great deal. But, I can’t risk the keyboard until they provide some extended warranty like Apple did for the 2015-17 laptops.

I suppose there’s some price at which I’d be interested in a laptop with a 128 GB SSD, but $1,000 ain’t it. At that amount of storage, I’d be constantly managing my files, and i know I’d just end up not using the thing rather than deal with it.

You can't trade in any Apple watch to get $100 off the series 4. My series 1 is only worth $40 according to Best Buy.

128 GB was too little for my MBA in 2011.

I wanted a terrabyte then, but 256 was max so I had to settle for that.

Apple is trying to drive me into the cloud.

I refuse to go.

Buck off Apple.
