    Hi PhilMug!

    This is my first post ever and I'm looking to be an active member of the community! That being said, I'm currently on the market to buy my first ever Macbook, in fact the MBA 2018 (I've always been a Windows user but the reliability of Windows laptops over the years is something that's left to be desired).

    I just want to ask the community some suggestions where I can buy relatively lower-priced Macbook Airs. I'm looking for a 512GB one but the standard 8GB RAM would suffice. I'm currently in Graduate School and I want something portable but stronger than the Macbook.

    I tried calling AJT Gadget World and Bosjap Shop but both stores said that they don't have stocks of the 512GB.

    For price comparison, AJT GW sells the 256GB model at 77k vs Apple.com's pricing at 87k. That's almost 10k worth of savings (I'll also be needing a dongle lol)

    Much help is appreciated. Thank you very much!

    You'd be better off looking for other 3rd party suppliers for that since they don't sell a 512Gb capacity in stores as stock. They sell that as BTO (built to order). Probably lurk the FB marketplace since there might be a chance that someone might sell one like that or probably try and check tipid pc sellers as well.

    When you said shopping, I thought you were looking for grocery tips :whistle:

    Having said that, and being your first time here, it’ll be awhile before you can get to access the Marketplace but don’t fret, our friends from BTB can assist you on the purchase you want, and as @mark.rupido says, any upped specs are likely to be BTOs, but why not if that is what you wish for.

    Hang around here. You’ll be able to talk to someone to help you get one. Good luck and welcome.

    Oof. Thought that stocks were readily available. Contacted BTB and with Apple’s pricing the 512GB is a hard sell. I think I’ll be buying an external drive to make up for it. Cheaper way too.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! Looking forward to get Marketplace access! Reddit’s been pointing me to PhilMug for anything Apple related. The community’s great! Thanks for the heads up!

    You may try sending an email inquiry to Senco Link as well.

    It would be good if there's a marketplace here, not sure but I thought it was this site or similar.
