Apple launches new MacBook Air

The new Macbook Air will hit the shelves next week.

The "ultimate iPad" has 25% less volume, nearly 4 million pixels and comes in 11 inches and 12.9 inches.

Maintaining its signature slim profile but with 17 percent less volume, the new MacBook Air is highlighted by its new display, featuring 50 percent smaller bezels, allowing for a reduced footprint while retaining the same screen size.

The new MacBook Air is available for Pre-Order from today and will ship on November 7.

Richarlison got a strike away moments after the restart but United would quickly extend their advantage. This was a United team full of spontaneity, full of enthusiasm and full of attacking intent.

The new MacBook Air comes with a 13.3in Retina display sporting four million pixels - no word on actual resolution - and some 40 per cent more colour than the old Air. That "Retina" display should be a massive leap from the 1440x900 display of the past MacBook Air, which was simply outdated for a $1,000 laptop in 2018.

It's 15.6mm thick, which is 10 per cent thinner than existing the MacBook Air, and it weighs 1.24 kilograms.

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. That might seem like a pointless question, given the 2018 MacBook Air has just been revealed to us, but if Apple's newest ultraportable is to be a success then it can't just count on branding to buoy sales. The company says the device will get 12 hours of battery life through Web browsing. Well, if you're planning on upgrading your tablet, I've got bad news for you: You'll need to buy a new Apple Pencil. 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.
