Apple Stops Selling Intel-Powered MacBook Air

Apple has discontinued the sale of Intel-powered MacBook Air on its online store. Apple unveiled its in-house M1 chip at the ‘One More Thing’ virtual event on Tuesday, November 10. Fitted with the new silicon, the Cupertino giant launched MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13-inch, and Mac mini at the occasion. Interested customers can still opt for Intel-powered MacBook Pro 13-inch, but the non-M1 laptop is only available at the higher end of the price spectrum. Similarly, non-M1 Mac mini is only available at the higher price-end.

Intel-powered MacBook Air removed completely

Following the ‘One More Thing’ event, all Intel-powered options of MacBook Air were removed from Apple Store. If you visit the store, it will only show M1-powered MacBook Air laptops to be available for purchase. The new variants are priced at Rs. 92,990 and Rs. 1,17,900 in India for the 7-core GPU and the 8-core GPU models respectively.

MacBook Pro 13-inch with Intel available at higher prices

The entry-level MacBook Pro laptops with M1 inside is priced at Rs. 1,22,900 and Rs. 1,42,900 for the 256GB and 512GB SSD storage option, respectively.
