Apple sells three MacBook Air models: a 13.3-inch M1 MacBook Air and two 13.6-inch MacBook Air models with M2 chips. Half the challenge is deciding which one to buy, the other challenge is finding somewhere with the MacBook Air in stock at the best price.
When the new M2 MacBook Air went on sale on July 8 2022, stock quickly became constrained. Now if you try to order delivery is about 3-4 weeks in the U.S. for the 8-core GPU model and 2-3 weeks for the 10-core GPU model. In the U.K. both models have a 2-3 week delay. The M1 MacBook Air is available in the U.S., but there is a 2-3 week delay in the UK.
Despite this, there are retailers in the U.S. and U.K. that have the MacBook Air to sell, some even have some pretty good discounts. You may also be able to buy an older MacBook Air until stock runs out of that model.
We’ve sought out the resellers who have the MacBook Air in stock and noted which are offering deals. For information about where to get the best deals on a MacBook Air we have a separate article.
