“Should I Buy the MacBook Air in 2019?” That’s a question we hear a lot from people shopping for a new laptop, especially with loads of MacBook Air alternatives, the 13-inch MacBook Pro that is on sale for $100 less than the MacBook Air and the new iPad Pro that you can get with LTE built-in.
The MacBook Air starts at $1,199 and is often on sale for $1,119 on Amazon, $999 with trade at Best Buy and $1,099 at B&H Photo. This is the cheapest MacBook you can buy, and it more than meets the needs of many users.
We finally get a Retina Display on the MacBook Air and while you lose the good keyboard for the new mediocre keyboard, you get a massive Force Touch trackpad. The new MacBook Air is a much better value than the older MacBook Air, but you may still be tempted to go with a 2018 iPad Pro if portability is a major concern.
