Apple launches new MacBook Air with retina display

All-new MacBook Air takes flight

In terms of design specs, the aluminum bezel around the screen is gone and the display glass goes all the way to the border, with a 13.3-inch display. All other ports have been eliminated, as expected in Apple's modern MacBook port strategy. There's also a large and much-improved Force Touch trackpad.

The new MacBook Air features a 13.3-inch Retina display with over 4 million pixels of resolution and 48 per cent more colour than the previous generation. 2015 was the last time Apple upgraded the MacBook Air, and although the company has been introducing major improvements on other MacBook devices, the MacBook Air has always been neglected. Reducing the bezels also served to make the entire body smaller, resulting in a machine with 17% less volume than its predecessor. Weighing in at 2.75 pounds, it's also a a quarter pound lighter than the previous edition. The Air's aluminum casing is made from 100 percent recycled aluminum, Apple said. A MacBook Air appears on the screen, and it's apparent that this is the first of Apple's updates today. It's available in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. The display has also been bumped to 1,400 x 900, which matches the latest MacBook Pro. Another highlight feature is Touch ID, which is now found on as a key on the keyboard, and powered by the company's T2 chip. This sensor is powered by an Apple T2 chip, which features the familiar secure enclave for securely storing and authenticating fingerprint data.

French finance minister cancels trip to Saudi conference
A New York Times report , citing witnesses and other records, linked four suspects to Prince Mohammed's security detail. Saudi authorities, meanwhile, have said Khashoggi left the consulate without being harmed shortly after he arrived.

It's a hefty price for the device, especially since you can get current MacBook Airs on Amazon for around £800-£900, and the super-slim MacBook is only £100 more than these new Airs. For now, there's Touch ID, much like on the MacBook Pro. but no Touch Bar. which should please some people if not everyone.

Apple says that the Air's 50.3 watt-hour lithium polymer battery features up to 12 hours of battery life when web browsing, 13 hours when watching iTunes movie playback and 30 days of standby time. Both models will be available from November 7. Like we saw with iPhone and the price tag creeping up to the $1k point, if you want Apple's latest then you need to open your wallet wider. With screen technology now upgraded, the popularity of the MacBook Air may get another boost, and might even hit the sale of the MacBook Pro laptops. Like the MacBook Air, it got a major overhaul in 2010. When Steve pulled that Macbook Air out of that envelope, it was clear that things would never be the same.
