New MacBook Air ANNOUNCED by Apple - Release date, specs, United Kingdom price REVEALED

All-new MacBook Air takes flight

"It's time for a new MacBook Air-one that takes the MacBook Air experience even further in the areas that are most important to our customers". In fact, people who have used the MacBook Air already find it the best laptop, even though they don't particularly like its TN screen. Like we saw with iPhone and the price tag creeping up to the $1k point, if you want Apple's latest then you need to open your wallet wider.

The old school MacBook Air is finally, FINALLY being replaced.

Note: Before you order, definitely look at the Apple GiveBack Program that lets you trade in your old (eligible) devices for a gift card toward your new one.

Bezels on the device have also been radically reduced.

The new MacBook Air is a fantastic update to Apple's aging Air line. The new Air's display glass is right to the edge of the enclosure, with borders that are 50% narrower. This chip not only handles your fingerprints, but it is also an SSD controller with real-time encryption, an IO controller, and an always-on processor for Hey Siri! The TouchPad also receives an upgrade, with haptic feedback. It has Apple's T2 security chip for enhanced security. There are two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 ports on the left side of the all-new MacBook Air, which will give it power, USB, Thunderbolt connectivity, HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort, and eGPU connectivity, depending upon the type of accessory connected at the end.

We did say that he, and you, should understand your words matter. "Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that". In one interview , when asked if he thought he needed to tone down his rhetoric, he said he could " tone it up ".

Lastly, the new MacBook Air is constructed from 100-percent recycled aluminium. Apple will offer MacBook Airs in space gray, silver, and gold finishes.

The MacBook Air 2015 and its forbearers are practically timeless products. The keyboard has had an update (which hopefully isn't as bad as the last batch of MacBooks), and comes with the same larger advanced Force Trackpad that you'll see on the newer, pricier MacBook models.

This means the Air includes the same keyboard as the 2018 MacBook Pro, which features quieter key travel and more resistance to dust.

Like the iPad and newest MacBook Pros - as well as former iPhones - the MacBook Air now has Touch ID to provide a secure unlock to the laptop.

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

Apple says that the new MacBook Air can run a 5K display and supports eGPU as well. 10% thinner than the previous Air. These machines included 8GB of 1600MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory, up to 12 hours of battery life, and a 720p FaceTime HD camera. The starting price is now $1,199, and that's with 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, and a 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5 processor.
