If you’ve been dreaming of a 15-inch MacBook Air, because the current-gen model’s 13-inch screen isn’t big enough for watching Waifu anime, Apple has granted your wishes. By just going big, plain and simple. And adding more speakers. And a bigger battery.
And, of course, a fatter price tag. My guy, it's Apple, after all!
Apple says the new — and bigger — MacBook Air is the “world’s thinnest 15-inch laptop.” The thickness is 11.5mm, and the weight is just 3.3 pounds. Take a look:
The biggest upgrade, well, is the 15.3-inch Retina display and a larger battery that now lasts 18 hours. That’s a pretty amazing figure, especially when compared to the best Windows laptops out there, which die a slow death as soon as they cross 10 hours.
You also get a new six-speaker system so that you can listen to sad songs over an imaginary heartbreak. Alas, there are still only two USB Type-C Thunderbolt ports, which means you will definitely have to spend extra cash on a port hub. Very kind of you, Apple!
The colors remain the same (midnight blue, starlight, space gray, and silver), the M2 processor handles things inside, and you get up to 24GB RAM option with this one.
Apple is asking Rs. 1,34,900 for the base model of MacBook Air (15-inch) in India. Orders are live already. So, go ahead, break that fixed deposit bank account, incinerate your secret stash of gold coins, haggle with your dad, or sell a kidney to get your hands on Apple’s latest large-screen laptop.
