    Is this a good best buy deal atm?
    Apple - MacBook Air® (Latest Model) - 11.6" Display - Intel Core i5 - 4GB Memory - 128GB Flash Storage - Silver
    $749.99
    ON SALE
    SAVE $150 (Reg. $899.99)


    I'm kind of scared of the 11" screen being too small but I use a galaxy tab s 10.5 inch android tablet when I'm on the road.

    I'm just wondering if these specs can handle playing kodi, streaming movies, some light coding, maybe vmware running windows 7, etc?

    Not a good deal. You can get a 13" MBA on sale for that much.

    A 13" MBA isn't a "good deal" if you want an 11" MBA. Just sayin'… ;)

    With the 13 inch getting the 8gb base upgrade... it's really hard to recommend the 11 inch. Even though I have an 11 inch bought after that upgrade... I just really wanted the 11 inch size.

    It's an okay deal, but not amazing. You can get an Apple refurb for about the same price.

    I've seen the 11" Air 4GB/128GB as cheap as $699 or $649 on Slickdeals

    Getting the 8GB/256GB model will probably cost you
