The ultra-slim 2019 MacBook Air is $200 off on Amazon right now

Ultra-slim Windows laptops are quickly becoming the norm, but no Apple fan can forget that the MacBook Air was the first real “ultrabook” of its kind. Apple is nothing if not innovative, and although the MacBook Air is no longer the only game in town, it’s still the go-to if you’re looking for a super-lightweight machine and can’t live without MacOS. And while the newer MacBooks have also slimmed down a bit in recent years, Apple has kept the MacBook Air line updated nicely, and Amazon has the latest model on sale right now for $200 off.

This MacBook Air is the mid-2019 refresh of the third-gen model, which Apple released in 2018 (meaning this MacBook is the newest in the Air family). It sits at 13.3 inches, putting it in a nice size category between smaller 12-inch laptops and full-sized 15.6-inch machines. That 13.3-inch screen is one of Apple’s brilliant Retina displays as well, featuring a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution with more than 4 million pixels. True Tone technology also auto-adjusts the brightness levels to match the color temperature of your current environment which greatly reduces harsh white light to prevent eye fatigue.

Under the hood, this configuration packs a dual-core Intel i5 CPU paired with 8GB of RAM, and for storage, you’ve got a 128GB SSD. If you’re buying a MacBook Air instead of a standard MacBook or MacBook Pro, though, it’s probably not for the hardware — it’s because you want that unrivaled sleekness and feather-light weight. The 2019 Air lives up to its name in this department: It weighs in at just 2.75 pounds and measures 15.6mm thin (or just over 0.6 inches) when closed, so it’s good to go for all-day carry. Its internal battery also delivers up to 12 hours of juice, allowing you to work and play on the move without having to hunt around for an outlet every few hours.

This 2019 MacBook Air normally goes for $1,099, and if you’re an Apple lover, you know that retail prices are typically what you can expect to pay for this stuff outside of seasonal sales. One-off deals do come around sometimes, however, and Amazon has a nice one going right now: A $150 savings is combines with a $50 checkout discount, knocking a total of $200 off the usual price and letting you snag this 13-inch MacBook Air for $900.

Laptops may be handy, namely for on-the-go lifestyles, but they rarely match the power and productivity of working on a full-fledged desktop.

Pint-sized PCs like Apple's Mac Mini are the perfect way to enjoy the comfort and utility of a desktop workstation with a small footprint, with the Mac Mini also having the benefit of being the cheapest entry point into the Mac software ecosystem.
