New Macbook Air Pricing
The new Macbook Air is rumored to be considerably cheaper than the current Macbook Air’s $1,500 starting price. The 11.6 inch version may be priced as low as $999, while the 13 inch version might cost $1100. The source points out that the 64GB iPad starts at $700, and the MacBook Air doesn’t have many more components.
This looks really exciting. Not often that Apple has failed to keep its announcement a secret, but I hope the rumors turn out to be true.
