There’s no mention as to when this deal ends, so if this is an item you’ve been looking to purchase, now’s the time to do it while it’s less (note – I’ve seen the 2GB version page show different prices throughout the day, sometimes it says it’s only $849.99 – it changed twice as I was writing this).
I have a MacBook Air and I love it! I use it when I travel, since it’s fast, looks great (for such a small screen), and the small, thin design makes it fit easily in my pocketbook without adding much weight (just over 2 lbs!).
From the product page:
The new MacBook Air is up to 2.5x faster than before. It features the latest Intel Core i5 dual-core processor, high-speed Thunderbolt I/O, a backlit keyboard, and OS X Lion, the next major release of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system. MacBook Air also comes standard with flash storage, so it boots up in seconds, launches apps quickly, and wakes from sleep in an instant. And a long-lasting battery powers MacBook Air for up to 5 hours and offers up to 30 days of standby time. All in a durable unibody design that’s thin, light, and ready for anything.
The MacBook Air with 11.6-inch screen–light, thin, and strong enough to take with you wherever you go (view larger).
