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. And with 48 per cent more colour than the previous generation, images are more lifelike than ever.1 The new MacBook Air also includes a built-in FaceTime HD camera, which is flawless for Group FaceTime calls with friends and family, as well as a three microphone array for better sound quality when making calls and improved voice recognition for Siri.
Apple's NY event on Tuesday saw the launch of the new MacBook Air, which hadn't seen a refresh in design since 2010, with the last spec-bump announced at last year's WWDC. Apple's transition to USB-C and this new design language is relentless, after all.
Weighing in at 2.75 lbs., the new notebook is 17% smaller and 10% thinner than its predecessor.
Apple's new MacBook Air starts at $1,199 (£1,199, AU$1,849), which is $200 more than the old MacBook Air. Additionally, the Air is equipped with the same keyboard and Force Touch trackpad found on Apple's latest MacBook Pro models, along with louder speakers boasting 25 percent more volume and bass.
The MacBook Air also includes the most secure storage of any notebook, Lagrove said, with a AES-256 crypto engine. Having said that the front camera remains same but surprisingly, the new MacBook Air comes with Touch ID.

After Cook went through the introductory steps, including a refresh of the recently released macOS Mojave and the new macOS App Store, the company went into the new hardware. It steps up the resolution considerably over the old MacBook Air, giving you 2560 x 1600 pixels.

Over a decade since Steve Jobs famously launched the first super-skinny MacBook Air in January 2008 by pulling it out out of a manila envelope, Apple's leanest laptop has been overhauled in nearly every dimension.
