The New MacBook Air

All-new MacBook Air takes flight Apple finally announces updated MacBook Air with Retina display to take on Surface Laptop 2
| 31 October, 2018, 07:41

At first glance, the Air's display looks great, though it doesn't feature the True Tone technology included in the 2018 Macbook Pro. The all-new MacBook Air features a 13.3-inch Retina display (2560x1600 pixels) with a 16:10 aspect ratio.

Apple has heard your cries for a MacBook Air refresh and the company has finally delivered.

MobileSyrup will have more on the new MacBook Air in the coming days, including a full review of the laptop.

MacBook Air also features the third-generation Apple-designed keyboard for more precise and responsive typing.

What is the MacBook Air?

Nope. The Air has a new lease on life. It has the 13.3-inch display. And that begins with the new Retina display. The screen's glass covering also stretches from edge-to-edge, meaning there's no bezel to worry about either.

The audio system also received an upgrade, as the new MacBook Air has 25% louder stereo speakers, 3x more base, and wide stereo sound, along with a three microphone array.

On the inside, you get an 8-generation Intel Core i5 processor with up to 1.5TB of storage and up to 16GB RAM.


The new computer has up to 64GB of Ram and up to 2 terabytes of storage.

Much of the world's tech still uses USB-A, and some Air fans will complain about the new Air's USB-C ports. On the downside, useful ports like the SD slot will be missed. That, perhaps, was down to the compromises Apple made to deliver such a thin, light, and fanless notebook.

The new MacBook Air will come with two Thunderbolt 3 ports on the device so that users can connect eGPUs, external displays and other external devices including storage. Apple has also ditched the Home Button on the new iPad Pro.

I'd have loved them to have been on opposite sides, because I've gotten used to being ambi-chargeable, but I recognize the overhead that adds.

From what we've seen it will no doubt be a solid performer for Apple and those that buy it, especially if they are after something bigger than the standard MacBook, and something cheaper than the MacBook Pro range. It was originally launched a decade ago, a year after the original iPhone. These are well known from other Apple products, but this is the first time color options have made their way to the MacBook Air. Compared to the MacBook Pro, Huang says, it's less about the sort of high-end components that power users crave.

In recent years, it had been hard to find a great Apple laptop for most people. Macbook Air can be ordered starting today and will be available next week at $1199.

Despite the new improvements, the updated MacBook Air is 17 per cent smaller in volume than its predecessors and weighs only 1.2kg as well as measuring only 1.5cm at its thickest point. But in a move that could prove confusing, the old MacBook Air will remain in the MacBook Air line and retain its $999 starting price. He emphasizes not only Mac's growth, but Apple's focus on maintaining their top position in customer satisfaction.
