What specs should I look for when buying a MacBook Air on Cyber Monday?
The MacBook Air isn't the most high performance machine in Apple's lineup, so specs aren't nearly as consequential with a MacBook Air.
The base configuration of 8GB memory and 256GB storage is more than enough for the vast majority of people looking for a MacBook Air, but if you want to get more performance out of your new MacBook, the best thing to do is increase the memory to 16GB.
You can always buy additional external storage devices for your MacBook Air, but you can't buy more working memory, which is what the device uses to run your apps. The more memory, the more freedom to operate those apps will have, which translates into snappier performance on everything from the best Mac games to streaming your favorite movies.
