The MacBook Air may be slim, but it’s price is pretty hefty. Thankfully, Apple is now selling the super slim MacBook Air for $2598, that’s down from $3098.
The slashing of the price is due to a cut in price for two of the components. The Intel Core 2 Duo processor upgrade for the Air’s 1.8GHz went from $200 to $100. Also, the cost of the Flash memory based 64GB SDD drive upgrade from $999 to $599. Now, you can configure a 1.6GHz MacBook Air with a SDD Drive starting at $2398. Still pretty expensive, but that’s quite a savings.
