Amazon drops new 11-inch MacBook Air to $850

Amazon slashes MacBook Air price deeply

Amazon has joined in a rare price race on Macs by dropping the price on the 11-inch MacBook Air. A brand-new, 1.6GHz Core i5 version of the ultraportable has dropped to $850, a full $150 less than its retail price. The discount is steeper than what's expected from Apple, which may stop at $898.

The other MacBook Air models at most get $60 discounts, leaving the Apple Store discounts on Friday as better offers.

A steep price drop may have been a reaction to a Best Buy listing that hides the real price until added to the cart.

    Are you sure???

    I just looked at the Amazon page. It lists that machine as Core2 Duo near the top and I5 lower down. Which is it? Amazon has been known to mis-ship stuff (and take it back, cheerfully). But, if it's the wrong piece then you are out of luck on the B Friday prices.

    Getting the price right

    Amazon's $850 price for a low-end MacBook Air is about what the retail price ought to be. Hopefully, with the market for such products heating up, Apple will cut the price of the next model of MacBook Air.
