Amazon is offering an impressive deal on the 2019 MacBook Air, offering the base model for just $799 in the United States. That's the lowest price we've ever seen and $300 less than Apple's regular price of $1,099.


The notebook is listed at $899, but if you proceed to checkout and choose no-rush shipping, the price becomes $799.

This is the latest MacBook Air model with a True Tone display, released in July 2019.

The notebook features 8th-generation Intel Core processors, Touch ID, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, the Apple T2 chip with Hey Siri support, louder speakers, and more. Note that, unlike the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, the latest MacBook Air still has a butterfly keyboard that may experience issues with sticky or nonfunctioning keys.

The base model is configured with a 1.6GHz dual-core Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, and Intel UHD Graphics 617.

Starting on Black Friday, a slightly better deal will be available at Micro Center stores for those who live near one of their 25 locations. They'll be offering the 2019 MacBook Air for just $779 for in-store pickup only, but quantities will be limited.

I feel really bad for all those people buying this machine, because they think that this is a great deal, not realizing that 128GB is insanely small for an SSD (and not realizing that storage is not upgradable).

I've met more people than I can count who were very unhappy with their base model 128GB Mac laptop after a year or two, because they were constantly struggling not to run out of storage space.

I love the comments on here. It parallels most tech people, that say.. but the key board sucks... stay away!

Tim really has held apple back. The keyboard redesign should have come out long ago. Apple laptop sales will be further depressing, except Tim doesn’t care, he will trap a lot of gullible people. That’s the way Tim treats customers. Also Tim doesn’t care if laptop sales are down as he screws you with dongles anyways.

Wish Apple had a real ceo! Not Timmy O’tool!

Junk keyboard. No sale at any price.

Let’s hope Apple doesn’t wait all year to upgrade the rest of the laptop line to 2015 standards.
Untrue. The older KB had problems, but 2019 Butterly KB is much more reliable. Plus you get a 4 year warranty.

Don’t believe the MR echo chamber of issues. If you want to have a freak out, read some of the posts about problems with the 16 in MBP. Most of this stuff will end up being totally overblown as well.

Literally just brought in my 2016 MBP for the keyboard replacement, was promised it would be a week. Planned it around a trip out of town for the holiday weekend, only way I could be without it for that long.
