Bloomberg: the new MacBook Air will have an excellent screen with thin frames: The only Apple laptop without a high-resolution screen is the MacBook Air for $ 1000. The last time this laptop was updated in 2017: improved only the interior, and the screen and design remained the same. Even ordinary USB ports are left!
In 2015, Apple tried to replace the line Air regular 12-inch MacBook. It costs $ 300 more than regular Air, and not everyone is ready to pay more. Bloomberg sources say that the updated Air will still appear. True, rumors about him have been going for a long time, but we hope that this year they will come true.
In late 2018, Apple will introduce an inexpensive laptop. Its frames will be thinner than in the MacBook Air, and the diagonal will be 13 inches, as in the current version. In addition, the laptop will have a retina-screen with high resolution, as in other laptops from Apple. It turns out that the size of the laptop will not change, but the screen itself will become larger.
In addition, Apple wants to release a Pro version of the Mac mini, and it’s very cool. It is clear that it will be more expensive $ 500, but the characteristics will be more interesting. Details about the new Mac mini are not yet reported, but when it is created, Apple focuses on “professionals.” Most likely, we are talking about designers, musicians and application developers. If this eventually proves to be true, then I’ll be the first in line for a new computer.
The source Bloomberg notes that while new devices are not worth discussing, as they are still being developed, and Apple representatives declined to comment.
Recall that previously Digitimes and Ming-Chi Kuo talked about a new 12-inch model of the MacBook. It will cost $ 1000, may appear in September, but no specific details have been reported. Bloomberg tells us about the 13-inch laptop. Perhaps, the publications speak about different devices: Digitimes about updating the usual line, and Bloomberg – about Air.
