The thing that we’ve been all waiting for, finally it happened. Apple finally gave a really big upgrade to the MacBook Air. I’ve been fan of the MacBook Air version since it came out and that’s 10 years ago.
Finally, the new Air has all-metal design that’s 10 percent thinner than the old model and weighs just 2.75 pounds. Build quality is perfect, as on the all Apple products. The changes also includes updates like a Retina display, Touch ID, and Apple’s butterfly keyboard. The wide bezels on the screen are finally gone and replaced by the glossy black bezels that we’re seeing around new MacBook displays. The new MacBook has a Retina 2560×1600 display, which is huge upgrade from the old 1440×900 display.
Apple added the Touch ID to the new Air at the top-right corner of the keyboard. Also it has two Thunderbolt 3 ports on its left edge and a headphone jack on the right edge.
Specifications of the MacBook Air 2018 are: 8th-gen Intel Core i5 CPUs and support from 8GB RAM and 128TB storage up to 16GB of RAM and 1.5TB of storage. Apple claims the new MacBook Air will last 12 hours on a single charge.
The base model with 1.6GHz dual-core 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz, 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, comes at price of $1,199.
