Apple has finally updated its most popular laptop the MacBook Air with retina display and Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
The new lower-cost Apple notebook adopts many of the technologies Apple introduced with the MacBook Pro in 2016 including a large Force Touch trackpad – new keyboard and two Thunderbolt 3 ports in the side for power and connectivity.
The new MacBook Air has a 13.3in retina display – thinner bezels and new stereo speakers that are 25% louder than the previous version.
It also has Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint scanner and T2 security chip for securely logging into the machine or using with third-party apps.
It ships with eighth-generation dual-core Core i5 processor along with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage – costing £1,199 ($1,199 in the US), undercutting both the smaller 12in MacBook and the cheapest MacBook Pro in cost.
