It’s a great time to upgrade.

If you’re in the market for Apple’s latest MacBook Air, it’s worth checking out this price drop at Amazon where the 256GB model is being offered for just $1249.99 — a savings of almost $150 on the list price. This price can also be picked up at Best Buy.

Apple’s 2018 MacBook Air features a 13-inch Retina display, 1.6GHz Intel i5 processor, and Touch ID fingerprint sensor. It also has two Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports and battery life of up to 12 hours. The model featured has the 256GB SSD so you’ll have plenty of space for documents, photos, music, movies, and more. It is available in gold, silver or space gray at the same price. If you don’t need the larger SSD, you can opt for the 128GB model which is discounted by $99 right now.

If you’re looking for a portable laptop that balances size and weight with power and speed, the MacBook Air is for you. It’s great for day-to-day work or studying and is a huge update on the previous-gen MacBook Air.
