Known for its line of cell phones, Apple also has many fans for its laptop models. But, like other products of the brand, they have a very high price. On Apple’s official website, the MacBook Air starts at R$11,599.
If you dream of having a “little apple” laptop, Amazon is offering an interesting discount on the MacBook Air M1. The price, which was BRL 12,999, has dropped to BRL 8,556.38 (value for the gold model), a difference of BRL 4,400. The offer is limited and subject to stock availability.
Given that the same product costs R$ 11,599 on Apple’s official website, those who decide to buy on Amazon are guaranteed a discount of slightly more than R$ 3,000. It is still possible to pay for the purchase in up to ten interest-free installments.
The offer comes in a week where the company created by Steve Jobs is in the spotlight. This Wednesday (7), Apple is holding its annual event where, among other news, it will announce the launch of the iPhone 14.
No news is expected for the notebook line, as the company launched the MacBook Air M2 at its annual developer conference earlier this year.
Check below what the MacBook Air M1 has to offer and whether it’s worth taking advantage of the discount:
MacBook Air M1 – Apple
Price: from BRL 8,556.38
In November 2020, Apple launched the MacBook Air with the M1 processor, which would be like the “brain” of the computer. It is equipped with an eight-core CPU (data processing unit) and an eight-core GPU (graphics processing unit).
At the time of launch, the Cupertino company assured that the laptop was faster than 98% of installed Windows PCs. In addition, the processor has a 16-core neural engine for artificial intelligence processing.
The use of processors developed by the company marked the end of an era, as before Apple computers used chips made by Intel. In practice, this meant that Apple began completely designing MacBooks, from hardware to software.
No fans and no noise
According to Apple, the MacBook Air has an autonomy of up to 18 hours from the outlet and has better thermal efficiency than the competition – so it does not have a fan, nor does it make noise.
The version sold by Amazon has 256 GB of SSD (solid-state drive) storage. The Retina screen has a diagonal of 13.3 inches (33.78 centimeters diagonally), a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels and a refresh rate of 60 Hz.
Just like on mobile phones, the screen has True Tone technology, which adjusts the color temperature according to the surrounding lighting to make it less tiring for the eyes. Another technology built from the iPhone to the MacBook is Touch ID, which allows you to unlock your computer with your fingerprint.
The Apple computer also has a built-in high-definition (HD) camera and three microphones for recording sound. In addition to gold, Amazon has the MacBook Air available in silver (R$8,799) and space gray (R$8,899) models, which are slightly more expensive but still heavily discounted.
Is it worth buying?
MacBooks are generally suitable for those who work with photo editing, video editing, creating or other tools that demand a lot from the computer.
For most Brazilians who use the computer for simpler tasks such as browsing the Internet, watching TV shows and editing spreadsheets, it may not be worth the investment.
But if you are a fan of the brand’s products and would like to have a MacBook, the discount is a good opportunity to fulfill that desire and save a little at the same time.
