- A new listing from Apple has revealed that there is a 128GB version of the M1 MacBook Air.
- Currently, the MBA is only available starting at 256GB of storage, but this cheaper option might not be available to the public.
A new M1 MacBook Air sporting 128GB of storage has been listed on Apple's US Education Institution – Hardware and Software Price List, but it's unclear if the device would ever be sold to the public.
Reported by MacRumors:
The list, as noted, features a 128GB option for the M1 MacBook Air, which only seems to be offered as an 8GB RAM model. Usually about $100 less, the education pricing would seem to indicate that such a MacBook would cost around $900, however, there is no indication this MacBook will be made available to the public. As the report notes, it is certainly possible that this configuration is only available to education customers, MR recalling that Apple has previously reserved other Mac models exclusively for education previously, like the Intel i3 iMac.
