Apple is also updating its Mac mini desktop and iPads at the event, which is ongoing. And at Apple's "There's More in the Making" event in Brooklyn, New York, we just saw its rebirth. As expected, the new machine is bringing up-to-date specs and hardware to the table. Apple's pro-level models had adopted an unpopular, finicky keyboard, added a gimmicky touchscreen "Touch Bar" to the MacBook Pro, and raised prices across the board. It's not as bad as thin as the rebranded CoreM in the 12-inch MacBook, but it's not the full-on I-series in the MacBook Pro either.
The MacBook Air is a bit of an antique. As a result, the Air should experience fewer keyboard issues than the 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pro, at least in theory.
For the most part, the MacBook Air 2018 is a better device than its three-year-old predecessor. The new Air has a new Retina display at 2560 by 1600 pixels.
MacBook Air also features the third-generation Apple-designed keyboard for more precise and responsive typing. The new Air's display glass is right to the edge of the enclosure, with borders that are 50% narrower. The native camera app comes with Animoji, Memoji and Group FaceTime features.
The new MacBook Pro-style keyboard now incorporates a Touch ID fingerprint scanner for security log-in, with an over-sized trackpad up front and beefier speakers beneath. The latest MacBook Air gives fans of this iconic machine everything they've been asking for over many years: a Retina display, Touch ID, and a body that's 17% less voluminous and a quarter-pound lighter than its predecessor. It is also marginally lighter than the previous model. It is still the butterfly design. The new Air's touchpad, as you may have already guessed, is massive and now features Force Touch, similar to the trackpads included in all of Apple's modern laptops.
9to5Mac's Chambers, the guy who'd called for the MacBook Air's demise, thinks that many businesses will still buy the aging $999 model for as long as it's available. It also improves voice recognition of Siri as well. There are three thunderbolt ports in the new MacBook Air. It now supports up to 16GB of RAM that's also the faster kind clocking at 2133MHz. And as far as battery life is concerned, the new MacBook Air offers up to 12 hours of wireless web browsing. It is "incredibly thin", just 15.6mm.
Before launching the MacBook Air Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Mac now has over 100 million active users. It is 100% recycled aluminum, as a result.
The MacBook Air, which goes on sale Tuesday and ships on November 7, starts at $1,199 for a hardware configuration that includes an eighth-generation 1.6 GHz dual-core processor, 8 GB of RAM and a 13.3-inch higher-resolution "Retina" display. Priced at $1199 (Rs 88,000 approximately), the laptop is available for pre-order in the USstarting today.
