The MacBook Air also gets its long-waited update on Apple’s October event. It is one of the biggest change for the MacBook Air in the past few years. Both the display, processor and keyboard are upgraded.

The older generation MacBook Air’s TN display with a resolution of 1440×900 is nowhere near acceptable for any laptops in 2018. Finally, Apple equips the new MacBook Air with a Retina Display (2560×1600), that we are accustomed to see in the MacBook Pros. It now has a much smaller screen bezels and a glossy glass front.

All MacBook Air models will feature the Intel 8th Generation Core i5 processor. It is a dual-core CPU, clocked at 1.6 GHz and can boost up to 3.6 GHz. 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM comes as standard, but can be upgraded to 16 GB. You can choose storage capacity from 128 GB up to 1.5 TB of PCIe SSD.
