MacBook Air 15-Inch Preorders Are Live, Releases June 13

The latest addition to the MacBook family arrives on June 13, but preorders are open right now.


The newest MacBook Air was just revealed during WWDC 2023, but its launch is right around the corner on June 13. Preorders are now open for the premium, ultra-thin laptop, and multiple models (and colors) are up for grabs. The 2023 MacBook Air starts at $1,300--though Amazon is taking preorders for $1,250--which is fairly pricey compared to existing MacBook Air models. But there's no doubt you’re getting a lot for your money.

Regardless of which SSD you opt for, you’ll also be able to choose from four unique colors--Silver, Midnight, Space Gray, and Starlight. Toss in up to 18 hours of battery life, a fanless design for quiet operation, and a 1080p FaceTime camera, and you’ve got a laptop that has everything you need for work, school, or even a bit of gaming. Speaking of gaming, Apple announced there will be a special Game Mode built into Sonoma, the next MacOS iteration.

Though the upcoming MacBook Air is a solid (and slim) device, you should also take a look at the 2023 MacBook Pro before making a purchase. In fact, two models are on sale right now, bringing them to some of the best prices we’ve seen in months.

The MacBook Pro 512GB is now $2,250 (down from $2,500), while the MacBook Pro 1TB is $2,200 (down from $2,500). This particular 1TB model also sports a smaller 14.2-inch display than the 512GB model, which offers a 16.2-inch screen.

Regardless of which you pick, it’s hard to go wrong. But if you want to get your hands on the new MacBook Air as soon as possible, be sure to get your preorder in today.
