Nearly three years after its last update, Apple launched its all new Macbook Air, last night, in New York. Their all new Macbook Air has a better 13.3 inch screen, retina display and TouchID.
The price of their latest model will be around $1199 and it is likely to be available in India in the month of November.
The Air was the only one in Apple’s current line-up that lacked the Retina display but with this update it gets one. It also gets Touch ID, two USB-C ports, headphone jack, up to 25 per cent louder speakers, 20 per cent bigger touchpad, up to 13 hours of battery life, 8th generation Intel dual-core i5 processor, up to 16GB RAM, up to 1.5TB SSD and 17 per cent less volume compared to the existing MacBook Air.

It’s 15.6mm thick, which is 10 per cent thinner than existing the MacBook Air, and it weighs 1.24 kilograms. Apple says that it can show 48 per cent more colours, clearly hinting that the new laptop has an IPS panel instead of the TN panel in current Air. Its screen has 4 million pixels, says Apple.
Before launching the MacBook Air Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Mac now has over 100 million active users. “Unlike any notebook that’s come before or since, MacBook Air has become the most beloved notebook ever. 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,” said Cook.

“Available in silver, space gray, and gold, the new thinner and lighter MacBook Air features a brilliant Retina display, Touch ID, the latest-generation keyboard, and a Force Touch trackpad. The iconic wedge is created from 100 percent recycled aluminum, making it the greenest Mac ever.1 And with all-day battery life, MacBook Air is your perfectly portable, do-it-all notebook,” said Apple’s website.
