Details on the new MacBook Air are sparse, but this report from KGI corroborates a similarly vague report from Digitimes earlier this year.
Ming-Chi Kuo, one of trusted Apple analyst today revealed that, Apple is planning to launch the affordable Macbook Air in Q2 of 2018. The MacBook Air remains a popular notebook even though Apple hasn't really updated the lineup for a few years now.
The 13-inch MacBook Air, a popular choice for college students, is now sold starting at $999 for 128GB of PCIe-based storage, a 1.8GHz dual-core i5 processor, and 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM. Lots consumers will opt for this model since it is able to provide them with more ports than the 12-inch MacBook and thanks to a lowered resolution, it is able to deliver substantial battery life.
This is the first time that the well-known KGI Securities Analyst Ming Chi-Kuo has made claims that Apple will be launching an low-priced MacBook Air.
It has been an absurdly long time since the previous MacBook Air was updated. Of course, the lower price tag of the laptop will apparently increase the sales of the MacBook Air in the market.
Until now, Apple has just upgraded the MacBook Air laptops with their software configuration and more storage variants, however there is no anything special to look after until now. It seems like the company is going to do the same thing in designing the cheaper MacBook Air. Reports claim that this affordable 6.1-inch iPhone will be launched with next iteration of iPhone this year in September. The base price of the device will be lowered to $600 to $700 with of course, a new hardware functionality.
Currently, Apple only sells the 13-inch MacBook Air. In a nutshell, the giant Apple has set everything well for this year.
