Apple MacBook Air 2018 gets a new retina display but this time it also gets more expensive and is now far too close to the powerful beast MacBook Pro.
The new MacBook Air 2018 has an improved design language and better 13-inch retina screen than previous macbook air.
The new MacBook 2018 features 8GB RAM and 128GB ssd storage costs Rs 1,14,900.
the new MacBook Air is the best light laptop you can buy internationally right now if you don’t mind the price.
But side by side this is a smaller, it has only two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and one headphone jack . USB-C port is the industry standard port in the market now, with Thunderbolt 3 port is greater and future proofing, but the lacking of an SD card slot reader is dispointting factor of this laptop.
Opening up we look at is the screen and keyboard position of a MacBook Pro lacking Touch Bar. in second gen macbook has large grey bezels around the 13.3in screen ,now replaced with thinner black bezels .
The MacBook Air 2018 has Apple’s third-gen butterfly keyboard, huge force-touch trackpad and speakers placed on the either side. on top right side there is the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, which is noticeably faster than Apple’s previous touch ID’s, but it has F keys insted of a Touch bar .
The Touch ID fingerprint scanner is on the top right corner of the keyboard is excellent.
Some persons will love the keyboard, some persons will hate it because it is still beautiful clicky keys. It is not my favourite keyboard on a laptop but it is responsive and I have no problem typing for long time on it. Everyone will like the trackpad. It is huge, smooth, responsive and totally solid it has the Taptic Engine haptic motor below to provide haptic feedback.
Build quality is awesome, with no flex in any part of the laptop. Weighing 1.25kg, the Air 2018 is about the same as Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 2 and so slim enough that you will not really notice when it is in a backpack.
