We're here at Apple's event in Brooklyn, New York!
On balance, this is the MacBook Air made for the MacBook Pro generation. They all share a design that competitors are still emulating years later - and only recently have done well. Macbook Air can be ordered starting today and will be available next week at $1199.
Who is the target audience for the MacBook Air?"In addition to the Retina display, the bezel is gone, with the 13.3" display going right to the edge of the enclosure.
Apple Inc on Tuesday unveiled its new updated MacBook Air computer with retina display. It is 10% thinner than previous Mac and weighs 2.75 pounds (approximately 1.25 kg). "So it's time for a new MacBook Air, one that takes the MacBook Air experience even further in the areas that are important to our customers".
The new Mac mini comes with plenty of connectivity options, including four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports and an HDMI port. The headphone jack, thankfully, is still on-board.
The old scissor switch keyboard has of course been replaced by Apple's third-generation butterfly switch variant, and the hinged trackpad has been retired in favor of a 20% larger Force Touch trackpad. MacBook Air's Touch ID is powered by Apple's T2 security chip.
Bromance before business as Modi visits Abe's holiday home
Abe chose to invite Modi to his vacation home in Narusawa after Foreign Ministry officials floated ideas to show hospitality. Japan is considered as a natural and indispensable partner for India in the economic, defence and technology fields.
What is the battery size of the MacBook Air? It has three microphone array for better audio calls.
I would have ideally liked to see the new Air land somewhere in the $1,300 range. Its screen has 4 million pixels, says Apple. It also features 48% more color than the previous generation.
The new 13-inch MacBook Air features a slight taper that makes it smaller than the Pro, and results in a wedge design that looks very similar to the old Air, though with an added level of modern polish. It has the same 12 hour battery life as the previous model. And, if you're the type to simply write papers and read emails on a laptop, the display is completely passable.
The old Air's display was a 13.3-inch relic with 1,440-by-900 screen resolution.
What are the specifications of the MacBook Air?. We were hoping this latest rendition would feature full fat Intel Core processors that go up to quad-core, instead what we got was a machine that only features dual-core Intel Core Y-series CPUs.
Configurations begin with a 1.6Ghz Core i5 and 128GB SSD for $1,199. The most affordable Retina-display Mac ever also includes an Apple-designed keyboard, a spacious Force Touch trackpad, faster SSDs, wide stereo sound, the Apple T2 Security Chip and Thunderbolt 3, making the new MacBook Air the ideal notebook to take with you everywhere you go.
After today's event, the future of the standard MacBook looks shakier than that of the Air.
