Amazon is offering the June 2013 Apple 11.6″ MacBook Air (MD711LL/A) with 128GB SSD for just $949 with free shipping. That is a total savings of $50 off the retail price of $999 and the first significant discount we’ve seen. This MacBook Air features the brand new Intel i5 Haswell processor which enables it to achieve up to 9 hours of battery life, 802.11ac wireless connectivity, and dual audio microphones for improved audio clarity.
Reviewers across the internet are singing praises of the new MacBook Air. Our own 9to5Mac reviewed the 13 inch version and declared:
Apple has a truly wonderful computer in the 2013 Macbook Air.
Pickup an ever so slightly discounted new Apple Time Capsule or Airport Extreme to get the most out of your new Mac’s 802.11ac WiFi. Even if you don’t normally buy AppleCare on your Macs, it may make sense for the new Air since its ‘repairability‘ score isn’t too promising for at-home servicing.
