11.6″ MacBook Air for $799 – Deal Alert

MacBook Air 11.6-inch

With the recent release of new MacBook Air models, B&H is clearing out the past generation and has the entry-level MacBook Air for $799 (reg. $999). Of course, the new entry-level model is only $849 (thanks to a $100 price drop on the MSRP when Apple launched the new models and B&H’s sale prices).

I actually have the model that is one year older than this model on clearance and have been very happy with its performance. I generally use it for travel and run Lightroom on it with no problems. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

Apple quietly rolled out an update on the MacBook Air yesterday. Both 11-inch and 13-inch models received updates with new Intel Haswell processors and slightly better battery specs. The models also received a $100 price drop for the standard configurations.

The 11-inch 128GB base model is now $899, while the 256GB model is $1099. Likewise, the 13-inch 128GB model is $999 and the 256GB model is $1199.

Macbook Air as a Mobile Camera?

If there’s one thing that I can’t help but snicker at, it’s people using iPads and other tablets to grab snapshots in public.  But this shot that shows a concert goer using his Macbook Air to shoot either images or video at a Jay-Z concert is beyond me.

There are of cellphone photographers in the crowd, along with a stable of pro DSLR shooters in front of the gates.  I can only presume that the dude with the Macbook Air spent his savings on his computer and not on the latest iPhone…
