MacBook Air 

Priced at $1,099, the 2019 MacBook Air is Apple's new entry-level laptop. The base model features a 13.3-inch Retina Display, Touch ID, 1.6GHz Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. 

Keep in mind there are currently two Retina MacBook Air models on sale. There's the late 2018 model (MRE82LL/A) and a new 2019 refresh (MVFH2LL/A) that includes a TrueTone display and Touch Bar. Apple only sells the 2019 model, but retailers like Amazon and Best Buy are selling both and it's the 2018 model which is currently getting the better discounts.
