Apple MacBook Air 15-inch in midnight color

Just last week, Apple unveiled its all-new 15-inch MacBook Air -- and you can already save $100 on the company's latest laptop. The larger MacBook Air only started shipping to customers on Tuesday, but over at Amazon, you can get your hands on the new machines from just $1,199. You can upgrade to the 512GB model while saving the same amount, too. B&H is matching the discounts.

This is the biggest direct dollar discount we've seen so far on the 15-inch MacBook Air and it represents a rare chance to save on such a new Apple product. Amazon isn't listing an end date to this sale, so it's worth locking in the reduced price while you can if you're in the market for a laptop upgrade. 

Apple's 15-inch MacBook Air is the largest Air model to date and offers an attractive option for those wanting a big screen Mac portable without spending over the odds on a MacBook Pro. It's essentially the same as the 13-inch MacBook Air but with a larger, 15.3-inch display. It features the same M2 chip, Touch ID sensor, two USB-C/Thunderbolt ports, MagSafe charger and 18-hour battery life. Its screen supports up to 500 nits of brightness and up to a billion colors. And there's a built-in 1080p camera for FaceTime calls, too, as well as a three-mic array and six speakers for spatial audio support.

Despite offering a larger display, the 15-inch MacBook Air still feels thin and light, as CNET's Dan Ackerman found in his hands-on time with the device, weighing in at just over 3 pounds and measuring less than half an inch thick.
