MacBook Air also features the third-generation Apple-designed keyboard for more precise and responsive typing.
In a way, the new MacBook Air sounds like the ideal laptop ever created.
The new MacBook Air comes in Gold, Space Grey and Silver colour options. The new Air has a new Retina display at 2560 by 1600 pixels.
So here's the New MacBook Air, a completely redesigned, reengineered, and carefully refined upgrade over the predecessor.
Even when it first launched, the MacBook Air display was not almost as sharp as competing rivals in its price bracket: a mere 13.3-inch panel at 1,440 x 900 resolution. The new Air's display glass is right to the edge of the enclosure, with borders that are 50% narrower.
While the new keyboard does not include a Touch Bar, the power button in the top right corner has been replaced by a Touch ID sensor.
Apple has introduced a new MacBook Air with a 13-inch Retina display, Touch ID, the latest processors and a more portable design. T2 also features an always-on processor that enables "Hey Siri", which lets you make requests to Siri with just your voice for things like finding files or opening an app. It is still the butterfly design. There's also a large and much-improved Force Touch trackpad.
This MacBook Air is the most environmentally friendly Mac on the market, Lagrove said: The logic board is made from 100% recycled tin, while the internal components are made from 25% post-consumer recycled plastic. It has three microphone array.
The notebook has two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports for connectivity. For less money, you could opt for the fantastic Surface Laptop 2, which comes equipped with a more powerful 8th-generation Intel Core i5 and premium finish for a lot less. SSDs are up to 1.5TB in capacity and 60% faster than the previous model. Talking about the battery, Apple claims that the device will come with a similar 12-hour battery life. 13 hours of iTunes movie playback.
It's true that new Air owners will need to buy a dongle or USB-C cable even to perform a simple tasks such as plugging in an iPhone for charging or syncing.
The previous update to the MacBook Air, released in 2017, included 128 GB of storage in the 13-inch version and 256 GB in the 15-inch version (both configurable to 512GB SSD). The new MacBook Air weighs only 2.75 pounds.
That said, it's still impressive how Apple managed to make the MacBook Air 2015 so thin and light while still relying on fan-cooled, full-fat Intel processors. It is 100% recycled aluminum, as a result.
