The MacBook Air may have had a refresh towards the end of 2018, but there is still a space in the lineup for the 12-inch portable MacBook. If what you want is Apple’s smallest and lightest notebook, the MacBook is the way to go. Right now you can pick the latest model up at a discount, too.

Amazon is starting to get a reputation for having some great Apple deals, and right now you can pick up a couple of different MacBook configurations with some great discounts to be had.

No matter which of the two you opt for, you’ll get a 12-inch display with a 1.2GHz Intel Core m3 CPU or 1.3GHz Core i5 and 8GB of memory. Charging and connectivity is taken care of via a single USB-C port, and each charge will get you around 10 hours of battery life assuming you aren’t doing anything too intensive.

The MacBook is a great machine for anyone who needs to use a Mac in confined spaces, or just wants to have as little weight as possible in their bag while commuting.

Students are a great example of a group of people who could make great use of a 12-inch MacBook, and that Gold color is definitely striking. If a MacBook Air is just too large or heavy for your needs, the MacBook is the option for you.
