$899 is where Apple should have priced it in the first place. The really funny thing is that the specs LOOK the same as the 2008 MacBook Air.. the keyword is LOOK before people start yelling at me about numbers, I know the new one obviously has better specs.

EDIT: I added late 2008 to the MacBook Air. Also, this is a joke...

While - obviously - there is a difference between the two models, if memory serves, the earlier MBA, the one that blew me away when I first saw it unveiled (from an A4 envelope), in its very first iteration, offered 80 GB HDD, and 64 GB SSD, not 128 GB.

This is a poor comparison for any number of reasons, especially since the MacBook Air shipped with a spinning hard drive by default, a 128GB SSD wasn't even available in the rev A option, and it started at $1799.

The specs look nothing like a computer from more than 10 years ago.

Late 2008 model had a 128 gb SSD option. And I said the keyword was LOOK, read my post again. I was just making a joke more than anything.

No one wants the MacBook Air with unreliable butterfly keyboard even if the price is cheaper.

Nope.

$200+ savings is not worth those crap keyboards and their potential hassle down the road.

I want an Air, but I'll be waiting for the ones that don't have that butterfly garbage.
Ding ding ding...
We have a winner.

Don’t touch these things if one has waited this long.

The model people should want is coming before much longer this year.

I love my 2019 Air. It's such a fantastic computer. Perfect form factor and surprisingly handles all of my workload without any issues. Also drives 2 4k monitors. Granted I maxed mine out, but I have no complaints. I love this machine.
