Mac­Book Air

Ap­ple gives its Air a speed boost, re­veals Ro­man Loy­ola

Macworld - - Contents -

If you blinked you prob­a­bly missed it dur­ing Ap­ple’s WWDC key­note. The Cu­per­tino-based com­pany up­dated its low­est-priced lap­top with a faster pro­ces­sor. The Mac­Book Air now has a 1.8GHz dual-core In­tel Core i5 pro­ces­sor, a bump up from the 1.6GHz du­al­core Core i5 that was re­leased over two years ago. The Mac­Book Air’s pro­ces­sor is a 5th gen­er­a­tion Broad­well chip, which is two gen­er­a­tions older than the Kaby Lake pro­ces­sors in the new Mac­Book Pro and Mac­Book.

Other than the new pro­ces­sor, noth­ing has changed with the Mac­Book Air.

Price

Ap­ple of­fers two standard con­fig­u­ra­tions of the Mac­Book Air.
