If you have an older machine and want to update, there are some great options. Whether you need a desktop replacement or laptop replacement, you can find all your tech specs and parts here.

As far as tech specs go, the first and most recent models that are available are the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro. These are two of the most popular choices, and even though Apple is no longer making them, they remain popular among buyers. If you are in the market for a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro, your best bet is to look for a used or refurbished version. There are many options in your price range.

MacBook Air

The second most recent model that is available is the MacBook Air, which came out in late 2021. This is one of the smaller laptops on the market, and it is just as popular as the Retina MacBook Pro. Like the MacBook Pro, it too is a great choice if you need a laptop with lots of power. While it isn’t likely that the Apple Mac will replace the MacBook Air anytime soon, it is a great option to consider for those who need that option. The cost of the MacBook Air is slightly higher than the earlier models, however it should still be more affordable than the earlier models.

The third option for the Apple Mac is the MacBook Air Plus. This is essentially an updated version of the MacBook Air and is the smallest of the three options. You can save a little bit of money over the other two options, but you will probably not save as much as you would if you were looking for a MacBook Pro. It’s important to note that there are different processor speeds and battery life capacities available for the Plus, so it is important to find out exactly what you are looking for before you decide.

MacBook Air Pro

The fourth option is the MacBook Air Pro, which is the most expensive of the three options. If you really want the best of the three, you should definitely consider buying the MacBook Air Pro. This is the largest and most powerful of all the MacBook Air models, and is the preferred choice of many professional photographers. The price is slightly higher than the other two, but it also has all the same features as the other two versions. You can expect to pay a little bit extra for the original packaging, but the parts are easily obtainable even without the packaging, and the performance is nearly identical to the others.

Last but not least, there is the MacBook Air with the aluminum shell. This newer model is the most colorful of the models, as well as the lightest, and it is largely identical to the Air’s older sibling. As with the Plus, you can expect to pay a little bit more for the original packaging, but the parts are still obtainable. While the newer MacBook Airs are only available with the 15-inch size, there are many compatible laptops with the old specifications available for purchase. These older models are not nearly as powerful as the newer ones, but they are still very useful for basic use.

Mac OS X 

All three of these laptops have one thing in common; they are compatible with the latest Mac OS X operating systems. Before buying your new computer, be sure to check if your machine will work with the older model identifier (model identifier). Apple discontinued the MacBook Air earlier this year, so it is unlikely that any of the existing hardware in the lineup will be compatible with the newer models. 

In addition, all three of the MacBook Airs are the only models that have the same exact part numbers, meaning that it is impossible for someone to order a repair with the old part numbers for future repair jobs. Therefore, if you want to save a little money on the parts, or if you just want to make sure that you have the correct model identifier, it is best to find out beforehand whether or not your machine will work with the older tech specs.


If you are looking to buy a MacBook Air with the older tech specs, then it is still possible to do so. Two of the best places to look for parts include Overstock and CompUSA. Overstock is still one of the most popular places to buy new technology; their prices are reasonable, and their shipping is fast. Compusa is also a great place to go shopping, and they have an extremely large selection of parts for the MacBook Air, including the space gray, gold, and silver model identifier.
