Apple announced its minor updates for the 2017 MacBook Air at the WWDC 2017 event, it seems the only change is the processor has been updated from 1.6GHz to 1.8GHz.

Not much is ever said about Apple’s MacBook Air, this 13-inch lightweight laptop offers some pretty good amenities, maybe a little outdated, and that could be one of the major reasons it seems to be getting left behind in the Apple world. Before talking about the latest update, let’s look at the current specifications that are offered: As mention above a 13.3-inch widescreen display has a pixel display of 1,440 x 900, based flash storage of 128GB, 256GB, or 512 GB, Intel HD Graphics of 6000, Wi-Fi compatible 802.11, wireless Bluetooth 4.0. As for the ports it offers – 2 x USB 3 and 1 x Thunderbolt 2. The MacBook Air also has 1 SDXC card slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack, stereo speakers, dual microphones, 720p FaceTime HD camera, a full-size backlit keyboard with Ambient light sensor and Multi-Touch trackpad, and a built-in 54-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery.

Now, the last update for the MacBook Air was in early 2015, since then all the above specifications have not changed, this is where Apple seems to either have forgotten this little gem, or has already replaced it. At one time, this was known as lightweight, weighing 2.96 pounds, whereas now the 12-inch 2017 MacBook weighs 2.03 pounds, in other words, Apple has two lightweight laptops. The MacBook Air is still a good entry- level laptop for basic browsing, streaming, or basic social and office needs, and with the recent change to a 1.8GHz processor, this should enhance the overall experience in making the everyday task more easier and faster. The starting price is $999, to read more information on the 2017 MacBook Air, or to order visit: apple.com.
