Apple updates MacBook Air
The MacBook Air from Apple has just received an update that will definitely go down well with folks who wished that the extremely thin and light notebook will arrive with better hardware specifications. In fact, Apple has decided to introduce a slew of faster processors without increasing the price. On the contrary, the folks over at Apple have decided that a price drop is in store, where you will be able to pick up an updated MacBook Air from just $899 a pop.
Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, shared, “With MacBook Air starting at $899, there’s no reason to settle for anything less than a Mac. Macs have never been more popular, and today we’ve boosted the performance and lowered the price of MacBook Air so even more people can experience the perfect everyday notebook.”
The implementation of power-efficient fourth generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors will work great alongside OS X Mavericks in order to provide the 13-inch MacBook Air with up to 12 hours of battery life, whereas the 11-inch MacBook Air will enjoy up to 9 hours of battery life. As for iTunes movie playback times, that will increase to a dozen hours on the 13-inch notebook and 9 hours on the 11-inch notebook, which means one will be able to enjoy an additional 2 hours of non-stop movie action, now how about that? In addition, the implementation of flash storage makes the MacBook Air extremely responsive, regardless of whether one is working on presentations, streaming movies and music from iTunes or organizing an entire photo library.
Each purchase of the new MacBook Air will see a free version of iLife and iWork included, where the former allows you to edit your favorite videos with iMovie, churn up new and previously unheard music or learn to play piano or guitar with GarageBand, among others. As for iWork productivity apps, those will include the likes of Pages, Numbers and Keynote. Any takers for the newly revamped MacBook Air?
