Electronics Valley (99.7% positive feedback, Top-Rated Plus Seller) via eBay Daily Deals offers Apple’s latest 13-inch MacBook Air 1.6GHz/8GB/128GB (model MMGF2LL/A) on sale for $796.99 shipped. That’s down from its list price of $999. We saw it for as low as $725 in Best Buy’s Presidents Day sale, but that deal required Visa Checkout. Shoppers in just a few states are required to pay tax at the time of purchase here, so that sweetens the deal a bit more.
This is a solid entry-level MacBook that blends performance and price. Features include two USB 3.0 ports, Thunderbolt 2, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, SDXC card slot and two microphones.
Need more storage? We still have the 256GB model on sale for $950 shipped (Reg. $1,099).
Accessorize your new MacBook with a stand for extra productivity. We recommend Twelve South’s Adjustable Hi-Rise Aluminum Adjustable Stand. It has a no-slip arm design that aligns your device with an external display “for the ultimate dual-screen workstation.” Another option is Twelve South’s BaseLift that tilts your MacBook to an ideal angle for working at a desk.
The 13.3″ MacBook Air Laptop Computer (Early 2015) from Apple is an ultraportable notebook 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 2.96-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. The system is loaded with 128GB of flash storage rather than an old-fashioned hard drive. Flash storage doesn’t just give you a lighter, thinner computer. It also allows for impressive battery life — up to 12 hours of web browsing and 30 days of standby time.
