Prime Day is nearly here and Amazon is starting to crank up the quality of its deals.

Alongside the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro updates, Apple has cut SSD prices across the Mac line, sometimes by as much as half.

The old non-Retina MacBook Air was relatively popular among consumers despite its age due to its impressive performance, slim design, and low price tag.

Apple continued its trend of quietly updating its laptop lineup this week, releasing a few hardware updates for its MacBookPro and MacBook Air computers, while killing off the last of the non-touchbar MacBook Pro options. Currently, you can get the Apple MacBook Air (128GB) for $999.

What this also means is that Apple no longer sells a MacBook with USB-A ports. Again, that's $100 off and the second-best price we've seen for this config. We think they could hit $949 and $1,149, respectively. That price could come from Amazon, Best Buy, or Rakuten, which historically have offered the best MacBook Air prices. With the MacBook Air discontinued, Apple's cheapest MacBook is now the 13-inch Retina MacBook Air which starts from $1,099.

The $1,300 13-inch MBP now comes with a 1.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz), 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of solid state storage.
