According to the Digitimes portal, Apple is preparing to replace the popular MacBook Air laptop.
What was told
The new laptop model will be out before the end of 2018 and should cost at least as much as the most affordable MacBook Air ($ 999) or even less. Released three years ago, "budget" Apple laptop is still in demand with fans of Apple. In 2016, he tried to replace it with the MacBook 12 and MacBook Pro 13, but the price tag of 1299 US dollars discouraged new users from buying anything other than the MacBook Air.
What to expect
MacBook Air did not have a Retina display, and the giant from Cupertino thought about using OLED screens in their laptops. Perhaps a new low-cost model will get an LCD-display, and fresh variations of the MacBook Pro will be equipped with OLED matrices. It is also believed that the top Apple is thinking about the applications in its laptops ARM-chips, in parallel with this developing its own processor. This will allow the company to minimize dependence on Intel products, and its technology does not suffer from bugs, lags, clumsy updates and other things.
