UAE- Apple announces upgrades, lower prices for MacBook Air, Pro

Which Color iPad Air 2019 Should You Buy 4

The MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are more or less similar when it comes to specifications.

"The funeral" 12-inch MacBook upset many users, as it was the lightest and most compact laptop, for which he valued buyers.

12-inch MacBook will replace the 13-inch Retina MacBook Air that was released in the fall of 2018 at a lower price.

Last year's MacBook Air, for example, hovered around the same price point as the 12-inch Macbook, which created some confusion when it came to buying a portability-focused Macbook.

If you've been meaning to get a new laptop, now would be a better time than most.


MacRumors ran some Geekbench benchmarks on the new MacBook over the previous model and saw performance gains of up to 83 percent.

Good news aside, a blow for those who like to consider upgrading their notebook comes with the fact that the SSD is now soldered in, whereas in the previous non-Touch Bar MacBook Pro, it was removable.

It should be noted that the more affordable variants of the 13-inch Pro laptops use the same chassis as other notebooks in the series, which means the thickness and weight are the same: 1.49 cm and 1.37 kg.

The company did not refresh the 13-inch MacBook Pro past year, despite refreshing the 15-inch model, which is why Geekbench used the 2017 model for comparative purposes. Full pricing is available on the Apple website. At present, Apple doesn't offer a quad-core processor option for the MacBook Air. Add to that True Tone and Apple's T2 security chip and we've got what sounds like a fairly solid entry-level MacBook.

The promotion includes a pair of qualifying Beats headphones with the purchase of any eligible Mac or iPad for college, as well as education discounts on qualifying Mac, iPad, AppleCare, select accessories and services.
