Apple's lightweight MacBook Air is one of the best ultrabooks you can buy. This specific laptop on sale packs a 13.3-inch Retina Display, Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD storage. 

In our MacBook Air 2019 review, we liked its crisp, high-resolution Retina display and strong audio. While it only has two Thunderbolt 3 ports on board, we gave it an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars. 

At 2.8 pounds, the 13.3-inch MacBook Air is on par with other travel laptops like the Dell XPS 13 (2.7 pounds) and the HP Spectre x360 (2.8 pounds). By comparison, it's a tad lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Pro (3 pounds).

Performance-wise, the MacBook Air's CPU 8th-gen Intel Y-series chip and 8GB RAM combo is ideal for day-to-day multitasking, whether you're using it for school or work. 

Port-wise, the MacBook Air is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports on its left side, one of which is for charging the notebook. It also has a built-in headphone jack so you can listen to music or podcasts using a wired pair of headphones.

This cheap MacBook Air deal won't last long, so we recommend you snag one immediately.
