The new MacBook Air is available to order right now, and will be delivered next week.

On Tuesday in Brooklyn, New York, the technology giant debuted a new MacBook Air with a sharper screen and redesigned the Mac mini desktop with a focus on professional users. The screen's glass covering also stretches from edge-to-edge, meaning there's no bezel to worry about either. The new MacBook Air has a pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports. All other ports have been eliminated, as expected in Apple's modern MacBook port strategy. It has three microphone array. The display is now 13.3 inches with a 2,560 x 1600 resolution. The MacBook Air 2018 is an interesting device in that it sticks to relatively the same design while completely overhauling the display, processor and inputs.

The newly resurrected MacBook Air. looks like the love child of the previous MacBook Air and the 12-inch MacBook. Reducing the bezels also served to make the entire body smaller, resulting in a machine with 17% less volume than its predecessor. It's 15.6mm thin, which is 10% thinner than the model before, and weighs 2.75 pounds.

Apple has just launched the much-anticipated refresh of its portable notebook, the MacBook Air. More so, Apple announced that all MacBook Air laptops are built from 100 per cent recycled aluminium, making it the greenest MacBook ever. 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.

Typing isn't the spongy experience it has been on the MacBook Air previously and only you'll know whether you like that or not. MacBook Air's Touch ID is powered by Apple's T2 security chip. To maintain the security of the device, the device will come with the T2 security chip which also controls the SSD of the device.
