New MacBook Air’s T2 chip protects your mic from hackers

All-new MacBook Air takes flight

The device has two Thunderbird ports.

Apple seems to have taken the principle "if it ain't broke don't fix it" to heart with the design of the MacBook Air 2018, as it looks identical to previous models save for smaller and darker bezels.

While my initial impressions of the MacBook Air are positive, a few questions about the device remain, particularly battery life given this is a feature the older air is famous for. They all share a design that competitors are still emulating years later - and only recently have done well. Orders are open now, and Apple expects to begin shipping the new machines starting November 7. The new MacBook Air has better display with bigger screen-to-body ratio and better colours in the Retina Display. To start with the pricing of the device, the company has priced the MacBook Air starting from $1,199, and interested users will be able to preorder the MacBook Air starting today.

This drop in dimensions is largely thanks to the MacBook Air 2018 adopting a fanless Intel Y-series processor. The Air's aluminum casing is made from 100 percent recycled aluminum, Apple said. Like the need for adaptors to compensate for the lack of headphone jack, which of course don't come included.

The keyboard is the all new, redesigned, 3rd generation keyboard with Butterfly mechanism.

9to5Mac's Chambers, the guy who'd called for the MacBook Air's demise, thinks that many businesses will still buy the aging $999 model for as long as it's available.

The new model now gets the same keyboard as the MacBook Pro - 3rd generation - and the trackpad is both larger and doesn't move, again the same as the MacBook Pro offering a haptic experience to give you the impression that something is moving.

What is the battery size of the MacBook Air? It has three microphone array.

What are the major competitors to the MacBook Air?

But Thunderbolt also enables Ethernet and can connect to displays, so it pretty much does everything.

MacBook Air comes with Apple's signature Retina display technology, meaning content should look better than ever. At the time, laptops in its price range were already pushing 1080p resolutions. It's got 17% less volume than the previous one, is 10% thinner at 15.6mm and Apple says it's kept the weight down to 1.2kg. And, if you're the type to simply write papers and read emails on a laptop, the display is completely passable. It has the 13.3-inch display. We'll have to wait and see how they hold up in the real world. That memory speed and the chip's Intel UHD 617 graphics suggest it's not from the blue team's official roadmap, though, as we can't find a Core i5 chip in Intel's public documentation that's entirely conformant with these specifications.

As well as the MacBook Air, Apple also unveiled a new version of the Mac mini with a host of upgraded specs.
