Just moments ago at its media event in Brooklyn, Apple has unveiled the latest iteration of MacBook Air to the world. Made from 100% recycled aluminum, the new model is not only more compact than its predecessor but is also equipped with a 13.3-inch Retina Display which is apparently one of the most requested features from Apple customers.
The new MacBook Air also comes with 8th Intel Core dual-core processor and can be obtained with up to 16GB RAM as well as 1.5TB solid state drive. It also features a Touch ID sensor which is secured by a dedicated T2 security chip that also protects its boot process and solid state drive as well as enabling the “Hey Siri” feature on the laptop.
Other improvements that Apple has implemented on the new MacBook Air with Retina Display also includes a larger Force Touch trackpad and louder stereo speakers. The new laptop also features the third-gen Apple keyboard from MacBook Pro which is said able to deliver more precise and responsive typing experience.
Comes standard with two Thunderbolt 3, Apple stated that the new MacBook Air with Retina Display has a battery life of up to 12 hours for wireless web surfing while it can also last up to 13 hours for iTunes movie playback. To be available starting from 7 November onwards, the new MacBook Air has a starting price of USD 1199 (about RM 5016).
