Why Macbook Air is better than ever?

This new Macbook Air will make you fall in love all over again. It comes in 3 colors gold, space gray and silver. The 13.3 inch high resolution 2560 x 1600 retina display has 4 million pixels and 48% more colors than the previous generation. The razor-sharp text clarity feels as if reading emails, documents and websites on a printed page. You don’t need any password anymore as you can unlock Mac, password protected documents and files with a touch of a finger with Touch ID.

The keyboard is backlit and more precise and stable as it features Apple’s butterfly mechanism. The Force Touch Trackpad is 20% larger with more room for multi-touch gestures. It fosters an 8th generation Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and 128 or 256 GB SSD storage. It is just 2.75 lb. light and 15.6 mm thin. With up to 12 hours of web surfing, emailing, writing documents and managing spreadsheets, you can binge watch a TV show for up to 13 hours without plugging in.

Macbook Air houses 2 Thunderbolt-3 (USB-C) universal ports for charging, data transfer and video output. Stereo speakers deliver 2x more bass and 25% more volume than the previous generation. FaceTime HD camera and three microphones make calls clearer and more accurate. Three microphones also create the experience with Siri a delight. Made up of 6000 series Aluminum which is 100% recycled, this is the greenest Mac ever. The integrated Intel UHD Graphics 617 supports Thunderbolt-3 enabled eGPUs.

This thinner, sleeker, lighter Air is more portable than the older generation. Great battery life adds more to portability. Aesthetically more beautiful, the only deal breaker is its price which is 300$ more than the previous Air. But for less complex and less demanding tasks like web browsing, playing music and videos, emailing and MS Office, this is definitely an upgrade.
