Seven months after the MacBook Air M2 went on sale in Vietnam, its price has plummeted 20.1% to VND26.4 million, the lowest price for an Apple laptop ever sold in the country.

The MacBook Air M2 was officially distributed in the Vietnamese market for the first time in July 2022 with the price of VND32.99 million for the 8 GB RAM model with a 256 GB internal memory.

Vietnamese electronics retailers said the MacBook Air line has accounted for 80% of total sales of MacBook models using the Apple M2 chip.

After remaining stable last year, the price of the Macbook Air M2 began to fall sharply at the beginning of this year.

"Sales of laptops using the M2 chip have not been as high as expected, so Apple has decided to adjust their prices," a reseller explained. "As the market is in a low period, authorized resellers are slashing prices further to stimulate demand."

A manager of electronics retailer CellphoneS added: "Another reason for the decrease in the MacBook Air M2 price is that the inventory is too big, forcing retailers to lower the price to recover their cash flow."

Earlier, the price of the MacBook Air M1 had declined by VND6 million from VND29 million in November 2020 to VND23 million two years later.
