The New MacBook Air

NEW YORK-The wait is over: Apple on Tuesday unveiled a revamped MacBook Air at an event in Brooklyn, New York.

While the machine itself looks similar to the classic MacBook Air, Apple says that the screen has been remade, with 48% more color than the last MacBook Air, and the ability to display 4 million pixels. To start with the pricing of the device, the company has priced the MacBook Air starting from $1,199, and interested users will be able to preorder the MacBook Air starting today. MacBook Air 2018 model can now connect to a whole host of devices including external storage, docks for additional ports, 4K and 5K displays, and eGPUs for faster graphics. Apple's expertise in screen technology continues to impress, and putting this new MacBook Air alongside your existing model could be enough on its own to get you to open your wallet.

After months and months and months of rumours and speculation, Apple has finally announced a new MacBook Air to replace the absolutely ancient MacBook Air. There are three thunderbolt ports in the new MacBook Air.

The price starts at $1199.00 which isn't the $999 the previous generation eventually dropped down to, but also isn't as high as the original started at. Apple will offer PCIe SSDs ranging from 128 GB all the way up to a whopping 1.5 TB in the Air.

Apple says that the Air's 50.3 watt-hour lithium polymer battery features up to 12 hours of battery life when web browsing, 13 hours when watching iTunes movie playback and 30 days of standby time.

That is all Apple felt the need to tell us about for the new MacBook Air, but if we will update if any new information pops up. The FaceTime camera will remain at the top of the display, however.

Despite all of these changes, the New MacBook Air takes up 17% less space than the predecessor. The Air's aluminum casing is made from 100 percent recycled aluminum, Apple said. The MacBook Air will be coming with a Retina display now! However, we do expect to see significant discounts on the old MacBook Air at retailers like Best Buy that may make it more tempting. The screen's glass covering also stretches from edge-to-edge, meaning there's no bezel to worry about either.

So here's the New MacBook Air, a completely redesigned, reengineered, and carefully refined upgrade over the predecessor. The Force Touch trackpad has a 20% larger surface area to extend the functionality of multi-touch gestures.

Under the chassis, you'll get Intel's latest eighth-generation dual-core mobile processors, which deliver decent performance for lappy parts.

The MacBook Air features a brand new keyboard with improved responsiveness. "Unlike any notebook that's come before or since, MacBook Air has become the most beloved notebook ever".
