Apple has today announced the new MacBook Air with upgraded configuration, and most importantly, a lower starting price than the machine it replaces. The 2018 MacBook Air (Review) had originally launched at a starting price of Rs 1,14,990, while the new MacBook Air has a starting price of Rs 92,990.

The New MacBook Air sports more than just a new price tag. The 2019 MacBook Air will start with 256GB of minimum storage, a huge relief to those who preferred to buy the cheapest Air but couldn’t digest the measly 128GB storage. The maximum possible storage has also been doubled, going up to 2TB from the previous 1TB. Those who felt that the dual-core Intel processor on the MacBook Air wasn’t enough power, the new machines will come with 10th generation Intel processors, configurable with up a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor. Apple’s press release states the presence of Intel Iris Plus graphics, leading us to believe that the new MacBook Air will sport Ice Lake version of the Core i7, based on the 10nm manufacturing process. The other significant update to the new MacBook Air is the Magic Keyboard, with Apple ditching the butterfly switches in favour of those found in the Magic Keyboard that ships with the iMac. Apple had already shipped the 16-inch MacBook Pro (Review) with this keyboard, and now, it's coming to the 2019 MacBook Air as well. The MacBook Air will still continue to come with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, one of which is used for charging, but Apple says that users can now connect displays with resolutions of up to 6K, a first for the MacBook Air.

The new MacBook Air will continue to ship in the 13-inch form-factor, with the narrow-bezel display sporting a resolution of 2560X1600. The IPS display now has a 16:10 aspect ratio, in line with that of the new MacBook Pro. As of now, Apple India’s website only lists 8GB RAM as an option, although they are configurable with up to 16GB RAM.

The new MacBook Air will be available starting next week at Apple Authorized retailers for a starting price of Rs 92,990.
