Apple cuts MacBook Air price by $100, gives MacBook Pro chip upgrade


Apple will also now sell MacBook Air with up to a 1TB SSD onboard.

The 2018 13-inch Touch Bar MacBook Pro is significantly more powerful and comes with four Thunderbolt 3 ports, but that power won't really be necessary for most users. That said, it was a confusing product line that Apple was presenting after it updated the MacBook Air. Apple will likely introduce new iPad and MacBook models at an October press event following the mid-September iPhone keynote. For many, the entry-level options were a great place to start but Apple has since announced it's tweaking its basic offerings in both price and specs.

The "New" MacBook, as it was called in 2015, was clearly a departure from what we thought a laptop was.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro will now boast an eighth-generation quad-core i5 or i7 processor for faster performance and has also been given a Touch Bar and Touch ID like on the model's larger counterparts. Its previous generation MacBook Air without a Retina display is also no longer available in Apple Stores.

A second bid has reportedly been made for Celtic's Kieran Tierney, but it has again been rejected by the Scottish champions. Asked about Arsenal's £40m offer, Zaha told On Sport: "I have no comment on it".

IT LOOKS LIKE THE RUMOURS were true, as Apple has updated its entry-level MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops.

The new MacBook Air continues with the thin and light pedigree but adds True Tone to its 13-inch Retina display. Perhaps more importantly, though, the base price has come down to $1,099/£1,099 - $100/£100 cheaper than before.

While the usefulness of the TouchBar is debatable, the update brings more structure to Apple's previously fragmented line-up. MacBook Air is created to power through daily tasks, from email and web surfing, to photo editing and FaceTime calls, and at an even lower price, it's the do-it-all notebook for consumers and students alike.

Tipped to have a screen of 16 to 16.5 inches clocked to even higher resolution than the current 15.4-inch MacBook Pro, the flagship laptop would also predictably be driven by a new Intel processor.
