Apple finally announces updated MacBook Air with Retina display to take on Surface Laptop 2
Apple powers the newMacBook Air with an eighth-gen Intel Core i5 dual-core CPU clocked at 1.6-GHz base and 3.6-GHz Turbo speeds (possibly from the Amber Lake family), paired with up to 16 GB of LPDDR3 memory running at 2133 MT/s. It's late to the game, sure, but now that it is here and with the holiday season upon us, Apple is likely going to sell a lot of these in the coming months.
NEW YORK-The wait is over: Apple on Tuesday unveiled a revamped MacBook Air at an event in Brooklyn, New York.
That newRetina display seems like it absolutely had to happen considering the sort of all-screen, minimal-bezel screens on offer in MacBook Air rivals like the Huawei MateBook X and Dell XPS 13, and makes Apple's super portable system look like it belongs in 2018. But unlike the MacBook Pro, the new Air has a traditional function key row with a TouchID fingerprint reader in the top-right corner, rather than a Touch Bar. The company also says it now uses custom alloy from excess aluminium, ensuring the laptop is built with 100-percent recycled aluminium, instead of high-grade aluminium in previous generations - which helps reduce the carbon footprint be almost 50 percent.
There are two USB-C ports on the left side. It is 10% thinner than previous Mac and weighs 2.75 pounds (approximately 1.25 kg). It is priced at $1,199 (roughly Rs. 88,200), and goes up for pre-orders in the USA today, with availability from November 7.
The new MacBook Air has the big ForceTouch trackpad that 20% more surface area than the previous model. But in a move that could prove confusing, the old MacBook Air will remain in the MacBook Air line and retain its $999 starting price.
Ten years after Apple launched its game-changing MacBook, the company has announced the latest iteration of its ultra-thin affordable MacBook.
Apple iPad Pro 2018 now features an edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display. That has left users and businesses hanging on to old machines for longer than expected, who Applehope will jump to purchase the new MacBook Air. Those perforations aren't just for show, either; they house speakers that are 25% louder and deliver two-times the amount of bass than that of the previous MacBook Air, according to Apple.
How much will this new MacBook Air cost?
When Steve pulled that Macbook Air out of that envelope, it was clear that things would never be the same. Since then, Apple has continued to sell the MacBook Air with outdated components.
