Apple's choice of processor Intel Double-core ultra-economical for its new laptops and bumping the starting price of 200 dollars draws quite a bit of consumer wonder - especially when comparing the supply to the powerful tablets
A decade has passed since the introduction of the first MacBook Air Dark, With amazing designs and dimensions that made it almost immediately one of the most desirable and prestigious in the market and sent competing manufacturers to do homework in an attempt to make it worthy competitors - and today things look very different, with many feeling that the compact mobile family is at the bottom of their priorities. Dark, Below theiPad and the-Macbook Pro that receive a significant investment in their promotion and development.
2018-sized MacBook Air launched with an upgraded 13.3 × 2,560 pixel resolution and based on IPS technology (instead of TN in the past), a dual-core Core i1,600-5Y chip from Amber Lake's Intel And drive SSD Faster based on a controller SSD From Apple's own development - but other than that we find it with the same LPDDR3 (slightly faster) 8GB volume and 128GB storage as the base, along with a pair of USB Type-C support Thunderbolt 3 and a 50-watts-hour battery that should provide 12 working hours as in the 2016 year models.

We have already stated that comparison of chips ARM Environment iOS For chips x86 MacOS is not exactly fair or useful, but it is hard to ignore the big leap in the capabilities of the iPad in just one year thanks to A12X octagon,Macbook Air received only minor improvements in battery life and thinness following two years of standby due to the transition from a power processor of 15W to an ultra-efficient Y processor with a power supply of only 7 watts.
Apple has made the MacBook Air a derivative of the smaller MacBook, it seems, and has no objection that all those who need a little more modern power will choose its Pro-iPad OrMacbook, Depending on the budget) instead, unfortunately.
