Apple Lowers Price of SSD-Drive MacBook Air

July 3, 2008 Leave a comment

AppleInsider noticed a $500 drop in the price of the Solid State Drive (SSD)-equipped MacBook Air.

The MacBook Air with a 64GB Solid State Drive was priced at $3098 yesterday, but is down to $2598 as of this morning.  It’s a tempting offer for those in the market for a slim, lightweight laptop.

The price drop is easily explained by the fact that Apple reduced the price of the Air’s 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor upgrade by $100, and cut the cost of the 64GB SSD drive to $599.

For now, the SSD drive remains at 64GB, but once the SSD drive is available with more than 100GB the MacBook Air will be even more tempting than it already is.

Apple Stock Avalanche

After enduring the avalanche that has been Apple’s stock price over the past two weeks, I’ve been wondering if the investors heard the same announcements I did. It didn’t help that Steve Jobs spooked everyone by giving a less-than-stellar forecast for the upcoming quarter.

This means the AAPL is on sale! I’m guessing that we’ll see the stock price hit 200 again by June. It will recover as investors realize that the new MacBook Air is the best in its class and that iTunes Movie Rentals will result in big bucks for Apple over the next quarter.

There’s a Quicktime stream of Steve Job’s keynote address on Apple’s web site in case you want to drink the koolaid.

Over the next few days I’ll post some first-reaction thoughts to the products they unveiled, including:

MacBook Air
iTunes Movie Rentals
iPod Touch software update
iPhone Software Update
Apple TV 2.0
Time Capsule
