M2 MacBook Air with MagSafe sees first discount to $1,135
Trusted Retailer Expercom is now offering the first cash discount on Apple’s just-released M2 MacBook Air. Now dropping the entry-level 8GB/256GB model to $1,135 for the Starlight model, today’s offer amounts to $64 in savings from the usual $1,199 price point you’d pay at Amazon as well as a new all-time low. Apple’s all-new M2 MacBook Air comes powered by its latest in-house chip and pairs with a refreshed form-factor.
The 13-inch Liquid Retina Display sports a 500-nit brightness to complete the P3 wide color support and pairs with a 1080p FaceTime camera with three-mic array and Spatial Audio-enabled speakers, though the real highlight has to be the return of MagSafe charging, which pairs with other I/O like dual Thunderbolt ports.
