Lugging around a brick of a laptop in your backpack can be a real pain — literally. You need something that can follow you around without constantly reminding you that it’s there. You need something lightweight, but not at the expense of performance and features. Take it from us — the MacBook Air is a solid option.

You can pick up Apple’s MacBook Air for $349 off its usual price on Amazon — dropping its total from $1,149 down to $799.99. Seeing as most Apple computers are hard to find under $1000, you might want to look into this one.   

The slim, lightweight design of the MacBook Air makes it a perfect purchase for those who travel with their work or simply want something that isn’t so encumbering. Slipping it into your bag and high-tailing it to the nearest coffee shop to finish up your memoir has never been easier. The Air’s 2.2GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 processor packs plenty of power, and the computer’s 12-hour battery life will ensure that you won’t have any surprise shutdowns (as long as you keep it charged). 128GB of memory will also provide you with plenty of wiggle room to store all of your files — that’s a lot of space for such a small machine.  Read more...
