Apple is supposed to release a cheap entry-level MacBook Air priced at under $800. The lowest priced MacBook Air available now is set at $999.
A new rumor says that Apple will lower the entry-level price to the MacBook Air line. According to Digitimes, Apple is considering a $799 MacBook Air. The $799 MacBook Air would be released in the 3rd quarter of 2012.
A cheaper MacBook Air would put even more cost pressure on the new Windows Ultrabooks. The MacBook Air was sold already at $799 in an early Black Friday sale at Best Buy last year. Maybe during Black Friday 2012 you will be able to get a MacBook Air for $599.
