Hey Look, There's a New MacBook Air on the Way

There's no Touch Bar on the new MacBook Air, but there is Touch ID functionality for signing into the laptop more quickly.

The new MacBook Air features a 13.3-inch Retina Display with 4 million pixels, with a sleek new design and narrow borders around the screen.

Touch ID on the MacBook Air is supported with Apple's T2 chip, with an SSD controller. The SSD storage inside the new MacBook Air is also 60% faster than the previous model, according to Apple, and has a capacity of up to 1.5 terabytes (1,500 GB).

Prices for the new MacBook Air start at £1,199 and Apple says pre-orders start today with the product shipping next week.

Two USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 ports are provided to enable connections to high-end peripherals like a 5K display.

Now measuring 0.61-inches at its thickest point, ten percent thinner and weighing 2.75 pounds, the new MacBook Air is crafted from a new, custom-designed aluminum alloy that uses 100 percent recycled aluminum.

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. It'll be available in Apple retail stores and through authorized Apple resellers from November 7. It includes faster processors, making it five times faster than the previous model.

Apple is finally updating the MacBook Air. Macbook Air can be ordered starting today and will be available next week at $1199. These machines included 8GB of 1600MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory, up to 12 hours of battery life, and a 720p FaceTime HD camera. Every MacBook Air is now made from 100% recycled aluminum, reducing its carbon footprint by 50%.

The new MacBook Air (2018) comes with a Retina display, with the display glass going right to the edge of the enclosure, with the aluminium frame of the past version of the MacBook Air totally removed. It also feels like the keys have slightly more bounce to them when compared to the 2017 MacBook Pro and possibly even the 2018 MacBook Pro.

The higher resolution display is easily the biggest upgrade the 2018 MacBook Air has seen. We'll keep you updated on the latest. This base configuration starts at $1,199, which makes this model the cheapest, until you start adding more to the configuration.

The old scissor switch keyboard has of course been replaced by Apple's third-generation butterfly switch variant, and the hinged trackpad has been retired in favor of a 20% larger Force Touch trackpad.

In terms of audio performance, the new MacBook Air is 25-percent louder, has twice as much bass, and has a three microphone array for improved clarity and Siri accuracy. "Unlike any notebook that's come before or since, MacBook Air has become the most beloved notebook ever".
