In our review of the 2018 MacBook Air, we praised the ultraportable laptop for its modernized design, sharp Retina display, excellent speakers and Thunderbolt 3 support. Not to mention, the laptop comes with Touch ID and is made of an eco-friendly recyclable aluminum. But there are a few things we aren't so keen on, like the MacBook Air's less-than-reliable keyboard and its slightly underwhelming performance.
- Apple MacBook Air (opens in new tab) for $749 ($250 off, Core i5/8GB of RAM/128GB SSD)
If the Butterfly-style keyboard is a deal-breaker, Best Buy is still selling the last-gen MacBook Air with a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD, and now for just $749, or $250 off.
You'll need to act quickly on these deals (especially if you want the now-discontinued MacBook Air) because they won't be around forever.
