Apple reportedly working on a $799 Macbook Air – direct response to Windows 8 Ultrabooks

Digitimes is reporting that Apple is developing a $799 addition to it’s highly successful Macbook Air line.

The new, more affordable laptop line will reportedly be available in the third quarter of this year.

Currently, Apple’s 11-inch 64GB MacBook Air is priced at US$999 with a 128GB version priced at US$1,199. The 13-inch 128GB version is priced at US$1,299 and 256GB version is US$1,599. If Apple decides to launch a US$799 MacBook Air, the sources believe the strategy will damage Ultrabooks allowing Apple to continue to press its advantage.

What do you think?

If you could get an Apple Air for $799, would you say no and buy a Windows 8 Ultrabook?
