The lowest-end MacBook Air features a 1.6Ghz dual-core 8th-generation Intel Core i5 CPU with Turbo Boost up to 3.6Ghz, 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 128GB of SSD Storage and an integrated Intel UHD Graphics 617 card.
Regarding the Air's keyboard, Apple says that the new laptop features its third generation butterfly mechanism.
The new Mac mini comes with plenty of connectivity options, including four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports and an HDMI port. The display is now 13.3 inches with a 2,560 x 1600 resolution.
As well as the MacBook Air, Apple also unveiled a new version of the Mac mini with a host of upgraded specs. Apple's transition to USB-C and this new design language is relentless, after all. The new MacBook Air will start at $1,199 for the 13.3-inch machine.
The new Mac mini is geared toward professional users and costs US$799, up from US$499 of the previous model.
The MacBook Air also includes the most secure storage of any notebook, Lagrove said, with a AES-256 crypto engine. Another highlight feature is Touch ID, which is enabled by the T2 chip. Having said that the front camera remains same but surprisingly, the new MacBook Air comes with Touch ID.
That's not great news for people who are used to Air being a full-on I-series system, but for those people, there's a lighter-than-ever MacBook Pro with scads of performance. "So it's time for a new MacBook Air, one that takes the MacBook Air experience even further in the areas that are important to our customers". The MacBook Air 2018 is an interesting device in that it sticks to relatively the same design while completely overhauling the display, processor and inputs.

We're surprised Apple hasn't jumped in with Face ID on the MacBook's yet, but the MacBook Air probably isn't the device to start that movement.
Apple has heard your cries for a MacBook Air refresh and the company has finally delivered. Weighing in at 2.75 pounds, it's also a quarter pound lighter.
The company is also touting louder stereo speakers with more bass than before, and it features a three-mic array.
The previous MacBook Air model is still available at $999.
Apple's overdue revamp has once again made the MacBook Air a serious contender and could swing some buyers away from the entry-level 13 inch MacBook Pro when the 2018 MacBook Air his the streets this week with a starting price of $1,849.
All of that with pretty much the same battery life promises as before - up to 12 hours of web browsing.
