The MacBook Air everyone has been waiting for is finally here — and it’s thinner and sleeker than ever. In 2018, the newly revamped machine resembles Apple‘s 13.3-inch MacBook Pro more than anything, which released two years ago.


High-resolution Retina display, USB-C, and Touch ID are just the beginning of the perks users get with the new and improved MacBook Air. According to The Verge, the screen is “on par” with that of the MacBook Pro models. The lighter package doesn’t mean anyone has to settle for lesser quality graphics.

Sure, it looks mighty fine — but the real magic happens inside. The base model comes with 1.16GHz Core i5, 8GB of RAM, plus 1.5TB SSD. All models of the 2018 MacBook Air include Intel’s 8th Gen processors. Also, there’s a headphone jack in case anyone was wondering. You just never know with Apple!

That’s all for the hefty entry price of $1,199.

In addition, Apple has unleashed a new iPad Pro and new Mac mini, both starting at $799.

P.S. While Apple is busy at work with this new hardware launch, the company is also rolling out the new iOS 12.1. The update mostly impacts the iPhone XS, XS Max, or XR. However, it’s a refresher for iPads, too.

P.S.S. The MacBook Air and iPhone work together in ways like never before. Learn more via Apple.
