Many products were released at Apple's October 30th event, including updated iPad Pros, MacBook Airs, and the Mac Mini. Announced in 2017, their MacBook was a great option for travelers that wanted more than what the MacBook Air offered. After it's long awaited update, the MacBook Air defeats the MacBook, coming in at a cheaper price tag.
Other than its thinner, and sleeker design, the update includes TouchID, ForceTouch Trackpad, USB-Type C ports, and the security monster T2 chip. The screen also received an update, now showing more than 48% more colors than the previous version. You can also get up to 1.5 TBs worth of storage (formatted capacity less,) and system memory of up to 16 GBs.
The new MacBook Airs start at $1,199 and are available for order as of yesterday on their online store. Starting November 7, you can pick up your new MacBook Air in stores and authorized retailers. With features of the higher-end MacBook Pros, this is a great buy for anyone wanting to get started with Apple laptops.
