Apple Discontinues 12-inch Retina MacBook and MacBook Air

Apple Kills Off the Last Non-Touchbar MacBook Pros, Discounts MacBook Air

Apple Kills Off the Last Non-Touchbar MacBook Pros, Discounts MacBook Air

Hot on the heels of Apple's MacBook announcements and price cuts, Amazon is giving the MacBook Air a price cut of its own. You'll also get a True Tone display, a TouchBar, and Apple's T2 chip for additional security and touch ID login.

Following the refresh of the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the Retina MacBook Air, Apple has now silently pulled the 12-inch MacBook and the old non-Retina MacBook Air from its store. (It briefly hit $949 a few months ago).

The old non-Retina MacBook Air was relatively popular among consumers despite its age due to its impressive performance, slim design, and low price tag. Today, Amazon is temporarily slashing it to $999. Apple's storage prices, however, are still astronomical, given that you can buy a name-brand 1 TB SSD on the open market for about $100, but the Apple storage tax is no longer as high as it was.

Here's the catch. There's a good chance that both MacBook Air laptops will drop in price on Prime Day. (That would match their all-time price lows).

Now that the MacBook and previous-gen MacBook Air have been eliminated from Apple's lineup, the new MacBook Air is Apple's entry-level machine.

The $1,300 13-inch MBP now comes with a 1.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz), 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of solid state storage.
