Apple MacBook Air hits the Philippines
Several Apple Stores in Metro Manila have started selling the new MacBook Air and they’re also running out of stocks as well. A visit to one of the Apple reseller store (iStudio) in Bonifacio High Street, Taguig revealed that new units of the MacBook Air fly off the shelf and into the hands of eager buyers as soon as they become available.
The current prices are as follows:
MacBook Air (1.6)
1.6 GHz CPU, 80GB PATA HHD
Php7,499/month for 12 months at 0% interest
MacBook Air (1.8)
1.8 GHz CPU, 80GB PATA HHD
Php8,832/month for 12 months at 0% interest
MacBook Air (SSD)
1.8GHz CPU, 64GB SSD
Php12,499/month for 12 months at 0% interest
The SSD version is so expensive it’s more pricey than a 17″ MacBook Pro (2.5GHz Core 2 Duo, 250GB SATA HDD, NVIDIA GeForce 512MB DDR3) at Php138,990.
Other brances in Shangri-la Palaza Mall (+632.8562395), Virra Mall Greenhills (+632.7258641) and Gateway Mall (+632.9125948/49) turned out nothing. Shipping date for newer stocks are yet uncertain.
