STUNNING RETINA DISPLAY
Over the past five years, Apple has slowly been upgrading its hardware lineup to include Retina displays, first with the MacBook Pro and since with its iMac and MacBook range. The Air is the latest device to receive such an upgrade, with the 2018 model including an eye-popping four million pixels, four times as many on a typical HD laptop display. Apple says that the new display allows images and videos to “take on a new level of detail and realism” and added that “text is so sharp and clear you’ll feel like you’re reading documents on a printed page.”
On top of its increased clarity, the new MacBook Air offers 48 percent more colors than its predecessor, meaning that everything you see
on the screen is richer and more vibrant. And unlike older Air models, a reduction in bezels (it’s 50 percent thinner than before) means that the notebook offers more screen estate so you can spend more time focusing on your work.
Technology vloggers granted early access to the new device were quick to praise the Air’s new screen, with Krystal Lora calling the new display “beautiful, and perfect for people like me,” whilst Jonathan Morrison called the old MacBook Air display “pure, hot garbage,” but added that the new Air’s “much, much better display” that would be great for “almost everyone looking for a new Mac,” and Engadget praised the “gorgeous” screen and loved the reduction in bezels.
