Rumors about the possibility that this year we have a discounted or "cheap" MacBook Air continue to this day in the forefront. It seems that Apple would have in hand to lower the oldest current MacBook computer and this would be an interesting $ 799 if this report is true.
Having cheaper Apple products is something that we have been rumored for many years and this is something that really being honest is something that has never been seen ... We can say that The iPhone 5C was one of these cheaper Apple products since the operators sold them in the United States at a bargain price, but in Spain that did not happen and the disappointment was tremendous.
Now it is said that Apple would be planning to launch a MacBook Air for less than $ 800 by the middle of this year 2018, but all this must be seen from a calm and relaxed point of view, so that no one gets nervous. I say this because MacBook Airs have been on the market for a long time and doing such a move may mean that Apple wants to end stock to stop making these Macs, which is both good and bad.
I always say and defend that the current 12-inch MacBook should be the entry-level Mac, this is something I have been saying since this nice, light and thin Mac was launched from which I am writing right now. But the MacBook Air is very different in everything from the smallest of the MacBook, and I have to admit that the best thing about it is that does not require the dongles or accessories today to connect other peripherals, for the rest it seems to me a Mac that should already be in «the reserve».
Putting this MacBook Air at a lower price or launching a new model of it could eat up the sales of the 12 ″ Macbook and even slow down its progress - with a second USB C port or a 13 ″ screen - but this is still a rumor and therefore we must be patient to see what really ends up happening with the supposed launch of a MacBook Air «low cost» and above all see if it will bring hardware improvements or will it be the same Mac, with the same lowered specifications.
