Walmart partners Apple to sell Macs for the first time ($699 MacBook Air, anyone?)

Recommended Posts



Apple Macs have finally touched down on Walmart aisles for the first time. This strategic partnership between Walmart and Apple marks a significant shift in the retail landscape, offering consumers more options and accessibility when it comes to purchasing Apple products.


The MacBook Air with the M1 chip is the first product to be offered through this partnership. Available for only $699, the MacBook Air is now accessible to Walmart customers online and will soon be available in select stores. This move comes shortly after Apple introduced the new M3 MacBook Air and discontinued the M1 MacBook Air.


Walmart’s decision to sell the MacBook Air directly aligns with their mission to deliver premium quality and unmatched affordability. In a press release, Julie Barber, the executive vice president of Merchandising at Walmart U.S., emphasized that customers should not have to sacrifice quality because of price. “Our mission at Walmart is to help customers save money so they can live better – it’s not an either/or proposition,” she added. 


As we reflect on this development, one can’t help but wonder about the potential implications for the retail industry. How will this partnership influence the strategies of other retailers? And more importantly, how will consumers respond to this new availability of Apple products at Walmart? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
