Apple finally announces updated MacBook Air with Retina display to take on Surface Laptop 2
31 October, 2018, 07:43
Apple will offer MacBook Airs in space gray, silver, and gold finishes. But it did put it on extended time out. That, perhaps, was down to the compromises Apple made to deliver such a thin, light, and fanless notebook. And that is the MacBook Air.
The new MacBook Air has a high-resolution Retina display, is a little lighter and has other performance enhancements. It's not wide gamut DCI-P3, but it is 48% more sRGB than the old Air. In fact, Apple claims it has 50% narrower bezels.
But not so much on ports. There are three thunderbolt ports in the new MacBook Air. "Given USB-C was added to the [new iPad Pro], I do not see how they could have done otherwise".
You can use them to plug into anything from an eGPU to a 5K display. The Force Touch trackpad comes with 20 percent more surface area.
This means the Air includes the same keyboard as the 2018 MacBook Pro, which features quieter key travel and more resistance to dust. It nearly seems assured that we won't see run times hit double digits. But one thing is for certain: Apple's not given up on that base design. And especially one Mac, in particular. The keyboard has been redesigned for better user experience along with the Touch ID. On the top right side of that keyboard, you'll also find a Touch ID fingerprint reader.
Inside is a solid tech spec-set built around Intel's latest 8th-gen Core i5 processor, faster RAM (to 16GB) and a zippier solid state drive (to a capacious 1.5TB). It can turbo boost up to 3.6GHz.
MobileSyrup will have more on the new MacBook Air in the coming days, including a full review of the laptop.
In a way, the new MacBook Air sounds like the flawless laptop ever created. Apple has launched a new updated MacBook Air, almost 3 years after it last updated the laptop, that has a Retina Display and TouchID. Both machines have 12 hours of battery life for web browsing, but the new notebook can get up to 13 hours of battery life for iTunes and playback. Having said that the front camera remains same but surprisingly, the new MacBook Air comes with Touch ID. It also makes Apple Pay more secure, and we like that.
From the outside, MacBook Air's tapered "flying wedge" profile - which measures just 1.56cm at its thickest point - and two USB-C ports makes it more clearly a member of the modern MacBook Pro family, although at a bantam-weight 1.25kg it's easily the most travel-friendly.
For it to work, Apple is going to have to prove significant value over price.
The new Mac mini is geared toward professional users and costs US$799, up from US$499 of the previous model.
In terms of availability, we are not sure about the exact release date in Malaysia but at the time that this article is published, the shipping date for MacBook Air is now stated on Apple Malaysia website as between 3 to 17 December.
