MacBook Air

Mac Format - - STORE GUIDE -

The MacBook Air is one of Ap­ple’s most pop­u­lar note­books, and its re­cent lack of up­dates has been be­moaned far and wide. Well, Ap­ple lis­tened, and has now up­dated the de­vice in a big way.

The MacBook Air now (fi­nally!) comes with a Retina dis­play with more than three times as many pix­els as its pre­de­ces­sor. The key­board has been re­vamped to fea­ture Ap­ple’s third­gen­er­a­tion but­ter­fly de­sign, while the track­pad is now 20% larger and in­te­grates the Force Touch tech seen on the MacBook Pro. There’s also a Touch ID but­ton that, cou­pled with the T2 chip, makes log­ging in and pay­ing for items more se­cure than ever on a MacBook Air.

Ap­ple has done far more than that, though. There are two Thun­der­bolt 3 ports and the stereo speak­ers are 25% louder, while the new mod­els fea­ture eighth-gen­er­a­tion In­tel Core i5 pro­ces­sors. All that’s been done while mak­ing the chas­sis 10% thin­ner and cut­ting the vol­ume by 17%.
