When our iPhone contract is up, we refuse to wait a single day and upgrade as soon as we can — but we’ll run our laptop into the grave and drag out its life for years. Which makes sense, because laptops are significantly more expensive, and most of us can’t justify dropping more than a thousand bucks every time there’s a new MacBook.
If you’re desperately in need of a new computer and missed the deals over the holidays, you’ll be glad to hear that Best Buy is having a massive sale on MacBook Airs from now until April 1. Select models are up to $250 off — which is in line with prices from Black Friday and the Apple Sales Event.
The MacBook Air is the laptop for everyone: They’re less than three pounds and thin enough to slip comfortable into any bag without killing your shoulders, and sport an impressively large 13.3-inch display. These puppies come in a few different storage sizes: Choose from 128 and 256 GB of flash storage or 64 or 512 GB solid state drive, along with 2 or 8 GB of regular memory. Prices vary depending on storage capacity, with the lowest priced laptop on sale coming in at $849.99. And for those not familiar with Apple prices, just know that a MacBook for well under a grand is insane.
Because they’re so small and battery efficient, MacBook Airs can last up to 12 hours on a single charge — so from the time you’re in line at Starbucks to the time you can finally close shop for the day, you can keep your focus on work instead of charging.
