New MacBook Air (2018) with Retina Display, TouchID and more launched

All-new MacBook Air takes flight

What is the battery size of the MacBook Air?

The screen is 13.3-inches of @2x Retina display.

And, yes, of course, Apple has deleted a significant amount of the bezels.

The MacBook Air hasn't seen a refresh for a while, and while some might have anxious Apple was going to discontinue the range Tim Cook has just (rather enthusiastically) announced that there's a new one on the way. Weighing 2.75 pounds, the new model takes up 17 percent less volume than the old version.

Regarding the Air's keyboard, Apple says that the new laptop features its third generation butterfly mechanism. We'll update you as it as progresses. There are two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 ports on the left side of the all-new MacBook Air, which will give it power, USB, Thunderbolt connectivity, HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort, and eGPU connectivity, depending upon the type of accessory connected at the end. There's also a headphone jack.

Who would use a weapon in a house of worship, on unarmed innocent people and even shoot four policemen, then surrender himself. Perhaps it was Cohen's radical demonstration of humanity in an era increasingly marked by naked partisanship and tribalism.

Last but not least, the MacBook Air 2018 now features dedicated speaker grills, like the MacBook Pro. It has Apple's T2 security chip for enhanced security.

Apple has designed a custom aluminum alloy which is being used for the first time in the new MacBook Air.

The "ultimate iPad" has 25% less volume, nearly 4 million pixels and comes in 11 inches and 12.9 inches. Fans of MacBook Air - and there are many - have clamoured for a new Air with Retina display for years. You can expect the same great battery life as the old MacBook Air, which is about 12-hours of runtime between charges. We'll have to wait and see how they hold up in the real world.

Here's where the MacBook Air 2018 fails to impress.

For starters, the Mac Mini has been upgraded to sport Intel 8th Gen 6-core and quad-core processors. Storage-wise, it supports up to 1.5TB SSD that is 60 percent faster than the predecessor.

Apple also unveiled new Mac models at an opera house in NY, where the company emphasized artistic uses for its products such as creating music, video and sketches. However, we were always surprised by what the laptop could do considering its limitations. Its keys are individually backlit.

Before Meghan Markle was the Duchess of Sussex , she had a wildly popular Instagram account and now-defunct blog called The Tig . Earlier, the pair expressed their admiration for mental health workers at a beachside morning tea in Wellington .

The new Air features a 1.6GHz dual-core 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz.

Additionally, the new MacBook Air has TouchID.

Finally, the new Air comes in three familiar colors: space gray, gold, and silver. But, it nearly seems like a win by default.

The Air also now comes with Touch ID built right into the keyboard with Apple's T2 security chip with an especially secure boot process.

The MacBook Air features a brand new keyboard with improved responsiveness.

This is the first time Apple has revisited the MacBook Air since its last iteration in 2012, opting instead to push its ultraportable MacBook device.
