It packs in a 1.6 GHz dual-core Intel i5 processor, up to 1.5 TB SSD, and up to 16 GB RAM. With the title of Apple's most affordable MacBook (the price tag starts at $1199) we imagine lots of parents are going to be considering this for their families - or perhaps even for yourself as you hand down an older model to the kids.

The new MacBook Air now includes Touch ID - a fingerprint sensor built right into the keyboard - which allows you to conveniently and instantly unlock your MacBook Air.

The notebook has two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports for connectivity.

We'll have to see how the new MacBook Air fares in our battery tests with its vastly sharper display. The most affordable Retina-display Mac ever also includes an Apple-designed keyboard, a spacious Force Touch trackpad, faster SSDs, wide stereo sound, the Apple T2 Security Chip and Thunderbolt 3, making the new MacBook Air the flawless notebook to take with you everywhere you go. All Mac minis now use faster flash storage as well with capacities up to 2 terabytes, Apple said. On the inside, the Mac mini has up to six-core processors, with system memory of up to 64GB and internal flash storage of a maximum of 2TB.

It costs $799 in the US.

The all-new MacBook Air base model features 8GB of 2133MHz RAM (up to 16GB), an Intel Core i5 processor (1.6GHz base clock, with Turbo up to 3.6GHz) with Intel UHD Graphics 617, and a 128GB SSD (up to 1.5TB). According to Apple, this new alloy is just as strong and durable, but can be created using 100% recycled aluminum. And that is the MacBook Air.

Here's everything you need to know about Apple's brand-new MacBook Air devices. It's not as bad as thin as the rebranded CoreM in the 12-inch MacBook, but it's not the full-on I-series in the MacBook Pro either. The aluminum bezels around the old Air display have been replaced by the black glass common in other modern MacBooks, and the size of those bezels has been reduced by half. "I think over the years, that is what the Air brand has started to stand for-the most accessible MacBook for the swaths of iPhone and iPad owners". There are two Thunderbolt 3 ports, but these are not the specs that most people will be interested in.

The speakers are now 25 percent louder with better bass and includes a three-microphone array for better Siri input and communication.

The popular Apple notebook has been completely redesigned and now offers a 13.3-inch display and noticeably thinner bezels. That's the new Air (top) with my 13-inch MacBook Pro (bottom).

All of that with pretty much the same battery life promises as before - up to 12 hours of web browsing.

The no. 1 feature customers asked for in a MacBook Air and have received in this version is a retina display, Lagrove said. The all-new MacBook Air features a Retina display, a first for the series and a feature that's always been anticipated. The new Apple MacBook will be available starting November 7.
