Their biggest customer base for the Macbook Air are students.
- Students shop for their laptops by September

If they announced the new MacBook Air sooner, everyone would’ve held off or returned their Macbooks.
This was a way for Apple to unload their inventory on students that needed them
Should I get the 2018 MacBook Air with 128GB or 256GB option?
For the $200 price difference, ALL YOU GET is 128GB more. For the $200 price difference, we recommend buying a portable hard drive that can be connected via USB-C. You can easily slap on a 1-2TB for that price range.
Install the immediate needs onto your Macbook Air’s 128GB. Adobe Photoshop, some important files you work on. Everything else can be stored on the cloud. Music, Movies can be on your USB-C external storage.
