We’re still several months away from back to school season, but now might be the best time to score the best possible deal on the newest MacBook Air. Whereas Apple’s entire laptop family typically doesn’t even start until you hit four figures, Best Buy has the 13-inch MBA on sale for just $699.99. That’s a savings of $300!

For that price, you get the base model configuration of the newest MacBook Air. That includes the 13.3-inch display, a 5th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 6000 and 128GB of flash storage.!

Apple and Best Buy tout that this MBA comes with “Thunderbolt 2 connectivity, great built-in apps, and all-day battery life.” There are also two USB 3.0 ports, an SDXC card reader, multi-touch trackpad, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. All the usual stuff. It’s even got a 4.8/5 overall customer rating based on over 3,000 reviews.

If you want to spend a little more, the 256GB model is $899.99, and the 512GB model (which also bumps you up to a Core i7) is $1,249.99. In all three cases, you’re saving $300 off the list price.

Even though this is the newest MacBook Air around right now, the model has been around for some time and it is starting to look a little long in the tooth. We expect Apple to update the line hopefully this year, which might be why Best Buy is offering such a discount. But hey, a new MacBook Air for $700 is a great deal either way! That’s cheaper than refurbished!
