All-new MacBook Air takes flight

The Apple MacBook Air is one of the most successful laptops of the past decade. Here's everything you need to know. See everything Apple has announced today. But two things stand out: Apple claims that the new A12X Bionic chip in the new iPad Pro allows it to be faster than 92% of all portable PCs and have 1000 times faster graphics. Fans of MacBook Air - and there are many - have clamoured for a new Air with Retina display for years. The new MacBook Air should come to India by the end of the year. The border is 50% more narrow.

The new laptop also has a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and Apple's "butterfly" keyboard. The T2 also features an SSD controller with on-the-fly data encryption for everything stored on the SSD. Since then, Apple has continued to sell the MacBook Air with outdated components. There's also a large and much-improved Force Touch trackpad. The TouchPad also receives an upgrade, with haptic feedback.

Two USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 ports are provided to enable connections to high-end peripherals like a 5K display. 100 million Macs are now out there in the wild now, which is a major milestone for the company. Aluminium gives strength and durability to the new Mackbook Air, which is made from 100% recycled aluminium. The MacBook Air will be available in three colors which are Gold, Space Gray and Aluminum.

Who is the target audience for the MacBook Air?

It starts with a 3.6GHz processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $799 in the US.

How different is the new MacBook Air from the previous version?

FaceTime now adds support for group calling, and the Mac App Store gets a full redesign featuring rich editorial content and the addition of apps from top developers, including Microsoft and Adobe. New Macs include a MacBook Air laptop with a better screen. Weighing in at 2.75 pounds, it's also a quarter pound lighter. The display is now 13.3 inches with a 2,560 x 1600 resolution.

Of course, beyond aesthetics, the MacBook Air 2018 heavily modernizes original's design. Apple's 12 hours of wireless web browsing (or 13 hours of iTunes movie playback) is on a par with before, too, though it still insists on only including a 30W power adapter.

Under the chassis, you'll get Intel's latest eighth-generation dual-core mobile processors, which deliver decent performance for lappy parts. With the title of Apple's most affordable MacBook (the price tag starts at $1199) we imagine lots of parents are going to be considering this for their families - or perhaps even for yourself as you hand down an older model to the kids.
