You can get a 2018 MacBook Air for just $999 with this latest deal from B&H

MacBook Air 2018

Amazon Prime members aren’t the only ones who can score awesome deals on laptops this week. In fact, you can avoid the Prime Day madness and still get yourself a decent discount on a late 2018 MacBook Air by checking out B&H’s latest deal.

B&H is offering a $100 off discount on a 13-inch 2018 MacBook Air. This discount brings the MacBook Air’s original price point of $1,099 down to just $999. With this deal, you’ll get the latest MacBook Air with 128GB of solid-state drive (SSD) storage, a Retina display, 8GB of RAM, and an eighth-generation Intel Core i5 dual-core processor. The Retina display on this MacBook Air has a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution and bezels that according to Apple, are 50% thinner than previous generations of the MacBook Air.

This MacBook Air also features a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, a larger Force Touch trackpad, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports. The Thunderbolt 3 ports also support DisplayPort, which in turn allows for the connection of up to two 4K displays at the same time. This particular deal is available in three different colors: gold, silver, and space gray.

We reviewed the 2018 MacBook Air last November, and we found a lot to like about it, including its incorporation of Touch ID, its loudspeakers, and an enhanced trackpad and keyboard. There were also a few disappointing drawbacks, however, such as a battery life we deemed to be “below average” and a somewhat dim display. Overall, we feel that the 2018 MacBook Air would be a good buy for those who are already Apple product/MacBook enthusiasts. Otherwise, customers who are willing to check out other brands may be better served by other Windows laptops.

Speaking of being open to other brands and operating systems, there are also tons of other great Prime Day deals on laptops. Brands like Dell, Alienware, Microsoft Surface, and HP are all offering deep discounts on their laptops, either through Amazon or on their own sites. In fact, you may want to check out HP’s current sale on its Spectre x360 laptops.

It’s unclear when the promotional discount for the 2018 MacBook Air from B&H will end, as an end date has not been posted on the product listing.

The best MacBook in 2023
everything apple announced at its one more thing event m1 macbook pro 13

With Apple's introduction of the latest M2 MacBook models, it's time to take another look at which is the best MacBook to buy in 2023. Buying the newest MacBook isn't always the right decision since Apple has several tiers of performance, as well as various sizes. There are several MacBook models available, designated MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, with varying memory and storage configurations, as well as four kinds of processors, providing a wide selection to choose from.

While some retailers still have stock of the older Intel-powered models available, those devices don't make it on our list of the top MacBook laptops since they rely on outdated technology. It's not that Intel chips can't compete; however, Apple stopped building laptops that use the latest Intel chips in 2020. That means older models are slowly losing compatibility as each new version of operating system, such as MacOS Ventura, adds features that are designed exclusively for Apple silicon.

2020 Apple MacBook Air -- $799, was $999

If you're entering the Apple ecosystem and don't want to pay much money for a Macbook, the 2020 Apple MacBook Air is the perfect fit and is often the gateway for most newcomers. What's even better is that this is the updated version with Apple's fancy new M1 chip, which not only leaps ahead of the Intel-based version but also manages to be fanless and whisper quiet. Of course, performance is excellent, and the 8GB is a great entry-level amount to keep the Air running smoothly without many hitches. The 13-inch Retina Display is also rather gorgeous and runs at 2560 x 1600 resolution with an IPS display, meaning better color reproduction. Storage is a bit on the lower end, so it might be worth subscribing to a cloud storage service to help with that. If you're new to Apple MacBooks, then this one is the one to grab from all the Cyber Monday MacBook deals.
