As a special back-to-school offer, Apple has discounted the 128GB variant of MacBook Air by $150. The $999 MacBook Air is now available at $849 directly from Apple. Not only that, Apple is also throwing in a free pair of $300 Beats Solo3 wireless headphones. You can choose other options, but this one’s the best.
Apple MacBook Air Specs
1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor
Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz
8GB 1600MHz LPDDR3 memory
128GB SSD storage1
Intel HD Graphics 6000
As you can see, the discounted MacBook Air comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal SSD storage. Apple does offer config upgrades, but you’ll have to shell out proportionately more for those options, which include upgrading the memory to 256GB or 512GB, and upgrading the Intel Core i5 processor to a Core i7.
The 13-inch MacBook Air is a lightweight device perfect for students. It’s a minor upgrade for 2017, so Apple isn’t calling it a “new” Air model. In fact, not much has changes since the product was launched about seven years ago. Major upgrades include the use of Kaby Lake and Sky Lake processors. Clock speed gets a bump to 1.8GHz against the older 1.6GHz.
This is not a pro device. For that, there’s the MacBook Pro. But at a steal deal price of $849 and a free pair of headphones worth $300, you’re not going to find anything like this for sure.
To take advantage of this deal, head over to the offer page, pick the free headphones you want and click on Add to Bag at the top. You can also pick from 8 different colors of headphones including (PRODUCT)RED, which is one of Apple’s many corporate social responsibility initiatives in AIDS awareness and eradication in eight African countries.
There’s no doubt that this is a great deal if you’re not keen on a powerful device, but you need one that can handle day-to-day tasks. Click Here to access the offer page from Apple.
