Apple MacBook Air (2018) 128GB | $950 | Amazon
Apple’s new MacBook Air may be boring, but it’s a thin little workhorse with a bigger, better screen and a faster processor than the 12" MacBook, which might just hit your laptop Goldilocks zone. And unlike the MacBook Pro, it comes with TouchID (yay!) without the obnoxious Touch Bar (yay!).
If the price was scaring you away, Amazon is taking $250 off the 128GB and $300 off the 256GB models, in all three available colors (except for the space gray 256GB model which is out of stock.) For whatever it’s worth wife got one of these when it came out, and she loves it.
