Apple authorized resellers in Vietnam have increased the prices of MacBook Air M1 by over VND1 million (more than $40) against late July when promotion campaigns were on.

In late July, the laptop’s selling prices were VND21.7-23 million, lower than the list price in the U.S. market.

Now, the selling prices are VND23-24 million, with VND22.8 million the lowest price offered by some resellers.

An unnamed manager with a reseller told local media that demand for electronic devices, including laptops and tablets had decreased several months ago, so Apple, distributors and resellers launched big promotion campaigns. Prices of MacBook Air M1 in July fell to the lowest.

Retailers including CellphoneS and Di Dong Viet said MacBook Air M1 prices have climbed up now because of the dollar value rising against the dong and the promotion campaigns coming to an end. However, purchasing power remains high in the market, they said.

"Among our total sales of MacBook models, MacBook Air M1 accounts for some 40%," said the manager of a The Gioi Di Dong store who did not want to be named. CellphoneS has reported the corresponding figure at 30-35%.

At ShopDunk, MacBook Air M1 sales over the past month rose 20% against July. "It is the cheapest among Mac models, while its M1 chip’s performance and efficiency is still very good," said manager Pham Tuan Anh.
