Say hello to the new MacBook Air! With the new Magic Keyboard, faster performance, and more storage, the new MacBook Air is sure to strike the right chord with price-conscious Mac laptop buyers at a new lower price of $999 and $899 for education.
Now starting with 256GB of storage, MacBook Air allows customers to store even more movies, photos and files. With its 13-inch Retina display for vivid images and sharp text, Touch ID for easy login and secure online purchases, spacious trackpad, and all-day battery life combined with the power of macOS Catalina, it’s claimed to be “the best MacBook Air ever made”.
Most importantly, MacBook Air does away with the sucky Butterfly keyboard. It now features the new Magic Keyboard, first introduced on the 16-inch MacBook Pro. As explained by Apple, a redesigned scissor mechanism delivers 1mm of key travel for a comfortable key feel, while the new inverted-“T” arrangement for the arrow keys makes them easier to find without looking down.
Moreover, MacBook Air features a unibody wedge design made from 100 percent recycled aluminum and comes in three finishes — gold, silver and space gray. The 13-inch Retina display also delivers over 4 million pixels and millions of colors.
Featuring the latest 10th-generation Intel Core processors up to 1.2GHz quad-core Core i7 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.8GHz, MacBook Air is said to deliver up to two times faster performance when compared to the previous generation. And with Intel Iris Plus Graphics, MacBook Air now delivers up to 80 percent faster graphics performance.
Moreover, MacBook Air comes with the Apple T2 Security Chip, Apple’s own custom-designed second-generation silicon.
Starting at $999, and $899 for education, the new MacBook Air is now available on apple.com.
