Apple has also worked very hard to ensure the MacBook Air is environmentally friendly, using numerous recycled components.
This MacBook Air cheat sheet has the details you need to know to determine whether this laptop is right for you.
While my initial impressions of the MacBook Air are positive, a few questions about the device remain, particularly battery life given this is a feature the older air is famous for.
This is the first time Apple has revisited the MacBook Air since its last iteration in 2012, opting instead to push its ultraportable MacBook device. "In addition to the Retina display, the bezel is gone, with the 13.3" display going right to the edge of the enclosure. Its screen has 4 million pixels, says Apple.
The 2018 Air also adds TouchID authentication, but the TouchBar has been dropped in favour of retaining the five-row physical keyboard.
The new iPad Pro runs Apple's A12X Bionic chipset with a more powerful neural engine which offers faster performance and brings improved machine learning and AI-task processing to the tablet.
-Sound Amazing sound from stereo speakers that deliver more bass and volume than previous MacBooks. It is backlit with individual LEDs behind every key, for even backlight. The old trackpad has been replaced with a new one with pressure sensitive and haptic feedback support. The iMac Pro and the MacBook Pro models from 2018 have already come with the new T2 chips.
Although we would have much rather preferred a touchpad that clicked, at least MacBook Air 2018 tracking surface is now 20% larger.
The new MacBook Air uses aluminum alloy for its case.
Apple fans and power users are the target audience for the MacBook Air, though it has several features that may interest business professionals as well. Another highlight feature is Touch ID, which is enabled by the T2 chip.
The target audience may be a business person or executive who primarily need to access information, as opposed to create content, Ray Wang, principal analyst and founder of Constellation Research, told TechRepublic. The new MacBook Air is portable, pretty, and newly powerful, all things you have to pay for. The company's current CEO went on about the original MacBook Air's features, including the battery life, the design, and how it "redefined the modern notebook" in the process. The native camera app comes with Animoji, Memoji and Group FaceTime features.
And the hardware is capable of delivering up to 13-hours of iTunes video playback on a single charge.
The new MacBook Air comes with Touch ID so users can instantly access the thin and lightweight laptop.
The new MacBook Air with the highest-specced internals has 16GB of DDR3 memory and a 1.5TB SSD. With a starting price of $1,199, the point of entry to this Retina Air is now $200 more than it was before. This base configuration starts at $1,199, which makes this model the cheapest, until you start adding more to the configuration.
All told, it's a better design in terms of portability, but it doesn't leave much room for power similar to that of what the MacBook Air held against contemporaries of the time. Apple claims that every part of the most affordable laptop has been "cleverly designed". Convertibles including the Lenovo Yoga 920 and the HP Spectre x360 13 could also be competitors. The new MacBook Air weighs only 2.75 pounds. The MacBook Pro starts at $1,799. Indeed the new MacBook Air takes the slender dimensions of its predecessor and narrows them even further.
