Amazon’s latest sale takes up to $200 off the price of the 2018 MacBook Air

The new MacBook Air was only released a few months ago, but Amazon is already discounting select models of Apple’s latest laptop. You can now get up to $200 off the price of the 2018 MacBook Air from the popular online retailer, which knocks the cost down to as low as $1,050.

There’s currently no clear expiration date for the offer, which covers all three colors of the new 2018 MacBook Air — silver, space gray, and gold. The deal specifically includes two variants, one with a 128GB solid-state drive and a separate model with 256GB of storage. With the 128GB model, the price drops from $1,200 to $1,050 for a $150 savings. With the 256GB model, the price drops from $1,400 to $1,200 for a $200 savings.

All variants of the 2018 MacBook Air currently on sale at Amazon come equipped with a dual-core eighth-generation Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM. Regardless of which storage option you may choose, both will be good for multitasking, as well as general web browsing. It also will last you through most the day on a single charge, with up to 8 hours of battery life.

When we reviewed the new MacBook Air in November, we mentioned its beautiful, thin, and light design and excellent build quality as highlights on the device. An improved keyboard and trackpad, support for Touch ID, and loud, clear speakers were other big positives. Compared to competing Windows laptops, only the below-average battery life and a dim and oversaturated display held it back from being perfect.

If you’re looking for a model of the 2018 MacBook Air with a little more power — perhaps for editing videos — you can find a variant with 16GB RAM and a 256GB solid-state drive. Unfortunately, it is not currently on sale, and it will run you about $1,600 on Amazon. Still, the base models in Amazon’s current sale are still solid for any day-to-day activities.

Amazon has put up quite the number of new tech gadgets on sale recently, as you also can currently find the Surface Pro 6 on sale at the retailer. Going for just $800 instead of $1,050, it comes with the keyboard included in the sale price.

Apple’s next MacBooks and iPads could be in serious trouble
The MacBook Pro open on a wooden table.

Hype has been growing for Apple’s upcoming M3 chips, which are expected to splash down in a slate of Macs and iPads later this year. Yet one leaker has come along to spoil the party and has claimed that we won’t see anything of the sort until 2024.

That idea comes from Twitter leaker Revegnus, who tweeted that there would be “No M3 Mac or iPad for this year.” That will be disappointing news to anyone looking forward to laying their hands on the latest and greatest Apple silicon chips in the coming months.

As it turns out, a lot more. From new iPhones, an upgraded Apple Watch, and possibly an AR headset, here are nine products we still expect from Apple in 2023.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro

If there is any Apple product with an upgrade cycle that’s literally like clockwork, it’s the iPhone, which is always out in the fall. This year, we can expect the iPhone 15 lineup to include an iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. However, it is rumored that the iPhone 15 will have a bigger 6.2-inch display this year, but the rest of the lineup will have the same sizes as before.
