This MacBook Air deal nets you a luxury laptop for well below $1,000 - something you'll struggle to achieve with the current price tags on Apple's range. We're looking at this 2017 cheap MacBook Air - an older model for sure, but one you can pick up today for just $699. While you may be concerned about picking up a two-year-old laptop, it's worth remembering that today's MacBooks can charge you premium prices for specs and features you might not need. Necessary to your workflow or not, many still find themselves longing for the design and simplicity of Apple's luxury range, however. That's where this fantastic cheap MacBook Air deal comes in. 

This is a MacBook for those who want the experience of a premium laptop but don't have the need to shell out for a set of specifications they won't use. Plus, if you're looking for a cheap MacBook with a reasonable 128GB of SSD storage, you simply won't find one anywhere else. The 2018 version of the MacBook Air that previously ran at this spec did so at a much higher price point and has since been discontinued. If you're after a low budget MacBook Air for school work or everyday computing, this unused 2017 model is your best bet. 

The MacBook Air in question features that 128GB SSD as well as a 1.8 Ghz dual-core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM - a perfectly respectable configuration if you're using your new MacBook for everyday tasks with that Apple flourish.
