Apple to launch the cheapest Macbook Air this year!

  • Apple reportedly planning to release a cheaper Mac Book Air

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. After all, the MacBook Air is still the most popular macOS machine in the market. The 11-inch MacBook Air is nearly lost now since it was launch for $999 in 2016. Perhaps the most obvious update that should be done is the leap from USB-A to USB-C ports, matching the current MacBook Pro and 12-inch MacBook laptops. This will give you access to higher bandwidth which can be used for hooking up a secondary 5K display, daisy chaining storage peripherals, and attaching an external GPU solution. Reports are now suggesting that Apple would be revamping its youth-oriented laptop segment with a new design and a cheaper price tag to keep it trendy among the college going.

That might be about to change if a report from often-correct analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is to be believed. Similar things were with recently launched iMac Pro that also costs too much.

The MacBook Air was just a backup?

He further reveals that the brand will launch a 13-inch model with a lower price tag to garner more market share in the laptop market.

While the line celebrates its tenth year in 2018, the line has largely only received incremental updates, the last of which came last summer, when Apple updated it with a faster 1.8GHz Intel processor.

Here are the potential processor choices that you might get when choosing to configure your MacBook Air (list given below).

Though it is hard to make a guess behind the decision of price drop, it will definitely give the company a boost in sales figures.

Expected Specifications of the MacBook Air?

The MacBook Air is accessible and it makes good deals, not under $1,000.

Apple has not had any substantial upgrade to the MacBook Air, with the latest model released three years back. Since Apple has not announced anything yet, anything is possible at this point so it is best to take it with a pinch of salt for now. Let us know down in the comments.
