At the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Apple today revealed a new MacBook Air.

"Apple's focus has always been on providing people the tools to unleash their creativity", Tim Cook says from the stage, as a Mac logo appears behind him and the audience cheers, noting that 51 percent of Mac buyers are new to Mac.

Apple seems to have taken the principle "if it ain't broke don't fix it" to heart with the design of the MacBook Air 2018, as it looks identical to previous models save for smaller and darker bezels.

The price of the MacBook Air with Retina display will start from $1199. Now featuring a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution that amounts to 4 million total pixels, the MacBook Pro 2018 screen is four times sharper than the previous 2015 model.

He even implied the coaching staff had talked over inserting Fields into the LSU game to relieve the struggling Fromm . They were shut out in the first half, which proved to be their demise and set them back in the conference.

The new MacBook Air also comes with Touch ID, secured by Apple's T2 security chip, letting you unlock your device and authenticate on apps using your fingerprint. More so, Apple announced that all MacBook Air laptops are built from 100 per cent recycled aluminium, making it the greenest MacBook ever. Its 10% thinner at 15.6 mm, and it weighs just 2.75 pounds (that's 1.24 kg). Apple says that the new MacBook Air can run a 5K display and supports eGPU as well. The new MacBook Air launches on November 7. The all-new MacBook Air base model features 8GB of RAM (up to 16GB), an Intel Core i5 processor (1.6GHz base clock, with Turbo up to 3.6GHz), and a 128GB SSD (up to 1.5TB). The fact it delivers 2x as much bass despite being thinner and lighter (which feels like it had to happen, too) is a very neat piece of engineering.

The all-new MacBook Air features a 13.3-inch Retina display. There's also a large and much-improved Force Touch trackpad.

Considering this success story, its weird that Apple has neglected the MacBook Air for so many years. To maintain the security of the device, the device will come with the T2 security chip which also controls the SSD of the device. Apple also introduces Touch ID on the MacBook Air, as the biometric sensor finally permeates the company's product lineup easily.

It's available for pre-order today in gold, space gray, and silver. And while the bestselling MacBook Air saw some minor nips and tucks since then - adding a second USB port, updating the processor and RAM - the 2008 industrial design stayed largely stayed the same.
