Rakuten via DataVis is offering the current generation Apple MacBook Air MD231LL/A 13″ i5, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD for only $974.99. This laptop is currently selling for $1,199 directly from Apple.

Also, Apple still is having some great deals on MacBook Airs over at their refurbished eBay store:

Apple MacBook Air 13″ 1.8GHz i5 128GB (Apple certified refurb) $899 + free shipping
Apple MacBook Air 11” 1.8GHz i7 4GB 256GB (Apple Certified Refurbished) $950 + free shipping

The 13.3″ MacBook Air Notebook Computer from Apple is a portable laptop computer with a thin and lightweight design. Apple’s engineers have leveraged the lessons they learned in designing the miniaturized iPad and applied them to the design of this 3-pound computer.

To say that the Air is svelte is all at once stating the obvious and understating the truth. The system is defined by its unibody aluminum enclosure. At its thickest point the computer is only 0.68″ — it tapers down to 0.11″ at its thinnest.
