A new MacBook Air was introduced on an event in Brooklyn, New York

This MacBook Air always stays at the entry-level with a more ‘reasonable’ price compared to other MacBooks because it has a display with lower resolution, something many MacBook Air’s owners want Apple to change. Now their need is fulfilled and along with that, I will also go through other main things you need to know about the MacBook Air 2018.

Apple finally upgrades the display it deserves

The MacBook Air is finally equipped with a Retina display. When it was first released, it was not possible to fit a display into something so thin without having a frame around it, and that’s why it has a wide bezel on it since then, and its resolution was fine at the time but it falls behind a lot now. And finally, Apple decided that its time for the MacBook Air to have a higher resolution and gorgeously vivid display in a narrow frame.

MacBook Air finally gets Retina display everyone wants

It looks and also feels sensational.

The first impression I had after picking up was the impressive lightness and slimness of it. It only weighs around 1.25kgs and it is 10% thinner and 17% smaller compared to its predecessor. Apple aims its MacBook to people who highly prioritize portability more than anything else. But it has a bigger 13.3-inch display compared to only 12-inch display of  the MacBook.

The MacBook Air 2018 with Gold color

Silver, Space gray, Green and Gold

I personally find the new gold color very stylish and also attractive. It has a nice and peachy glow and that is actually what I saw, not in any photo with digital perfection. And the green color is due to the fact that it is 100% made from recycled aluminum which Apple gathered from other unused Apple products. Don’t worry about those recycled parts as Apple begins with high-quality aluminum and it has many things which can be recycled into brand new aluminum alloy and those will be used to make new MacBook Air.

The new MacBook Air comes with 2 USB-C ports

It is well-connected.

Apple has replaced the traditional USB-A sockets with two new USB-C ports compared to only 1 USB-C port the MacBook despite the fact that MacBook Air is in lower price range. And there is still a headphone jack as well. Moreover, despite the MacBook Air’s cheaper price, it has the third-generation MacBook keyboard which is the latest version and is currently used in the most expensive MacBook Pro.

The MacBook Air 2018 has a Touch ID

Most interesting thing is that this MacBook has a Touch ID, a feature which previously only appeared in MacBook Pro - the most expensive MacBook model. Surely you wouldn’t need the Touch ID if you own an Apple Watch as you can use it to unlock your MacBook, but having a Touch ID just like other more high-end devices is still safer and more comfortable for users.

It has a large touch pad

Its battery capacity can last for the whole day.

Apple claims that the battery of its new MacBook Air can ensure 12 hours of surfing the web which is pretty much enough for a work day. This is a feature that has always been in the MacBook Air.

It comes with the latest-generation keyboard

The old-school design is still there.

The MacBook Air is the most affordable among the MacBook series and the MacBook Air with the previous design is the most affordable MacBook Air with the price of $999 (about Rs 72,842). So if you are interested in the old-school MacBook Air with the USB-A or HDMI ports, then pick it up now because no one can be sure how long this model will last.
