For some of us who cannot afford to buy the expensive MacBook Air, there is great news as Apple is reportedly launching an affordable new Macbook Air.
So, if your plan is to get a new laptop this year, you might want to wait a little bit till later in the year.
The news came from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is known for his research on topics like this. 9to5Mac relayed Kuo’s prediction about a refreshed MacBook Air with “a lower price tag” that’s slated to arrive in the second quarter of this year, so as to help Apple boost its laptop shipments by 10-15 percent in 2018.
This is will good news for Macbook Air fans or anyone looking to purchase a portable laptop with great battery life at an affordable price.
The present generation of Macbook Air isn’t really cheap as they are sold for around $999. The cheaper price will help Apple compete with other mid-range laptops.
We also heard at the end of January that Apple would fit its new computers with custom processors; Bloomberg noted at the time that at least two laptops were slated to get those chips.
The company has previously designed processors in-house for things like image processing, security and handling Touch Bar duties – but it isn’t yet clear what the new ones will be used for, and whether they’ll even make it to the MacBook Air. With other brands stepping up their laptop game lately, Apple will need all the help it can get to stay in the running.
