It now comes in three colours - Space Grey, Gold and Silver, and retains the thin wedge design that Air has always been known for, giving it a very desirable look and feel. As we mentioned earlier on, we're going to see a slight refresh of the MacBook Air in , with added True Tone technology for the display.
The MacBook Air will also come with Apple's improved third-generation butterfly keyboard, which Apple introduced in the more expensive models of the MacBook Pro after numerous reports surfaced of faulty keyboards in older MacBooks. When the MacBook Air releases, expect to see some even more tempting offers for the MacBook Air , which still remains a fantastic Apple laptop.
Nevertheless it still looks the part on the outside, with a inch Retina display and the same three Space Grey, Gold and Silver colours that the MacBook Air is available in. With the model, Apple has addressed a common criticism of its first-generation butterfly keyboards, making them more resilient against crumbs and dirt. However, we should point out that Apple will stop selling the inch MacBook on its online store.
This could actually be advantageous to anyone thinking of buying the MacBook, however, as it means Apple will start clearing out its stock. This could lead to some really impressive MacBook inch deals.
Keep an eye on what other retailers do as well, and even consider a refurb MacBook. Also, just because Apple will stop selling the inch MacBook, it doesn't mean it'll stop supporting it, so you can still buy one without worrying that it will soon become useless. But its lower retail price is something of a false economy, given that the old display has big, thick bezels around the display, has no Retina resolution, and uses ancient TN technology with poor viewing angles, compared with the superior IPS Retina screens found in every other Mac laptop.
Worse, it has an old 5th-generation Intel dual-core processor, which may not be noticeably slower in day-to-day use for basic tasks such as email and web browsing, but is still years old. The MacBook Pro comes in three distinct flavours: inch and inch with the Touch Bar, and then another inch model without the Touch Bar. But importantly, the inch MacBook Pro models without the Touch Bar are better value for money, but less powerful than the variant that does have a Touch Bar.
Apple has also announced a refreshed inch MacBook Pro , which will keep the same price as the model, but will get a power boost thanks to an 8th-generation Intel Core i5 quad-core processor 1. Bear in mind that once you start adding on extras to the entry-level MacBook Pro, the cost naturally skyrockets, which then makes the next tier up seem all the more attractive, given how it will offer significantly better all round performance for media editing and give you more storage anyway.
Crucially, it upgrades the seventh-generation Intel dual-core processor to a 2. It has a few other neat extras too, with GB of SSD storage as standard, a True Tone display and more powerful Intel Iris Plus graphics, which will make a small improvement in some tasks. The two available inch models have 16GB of memory as standard, with six-core processors, starting with a 2. This offers seriously fast performance that will go absolutely unused in day-to-day tasks like email, but will be brilliant for media work, with super fast exporting of video and plugins that just go like the clappers.
Also, the MacBook Pro inch lineup is coming soon.
These will come with the latest 9th generation 8-core Intel Core i9 processor. The cheapest MacBook Pro inch configuration comes with a 2.
Again, expect prices for the models to fall slightly once the lineup releases. If you can hold on, you could bag yourself a brilliant MacBook Pro deal.
