To the fanfare of MacBook Air fans, Apple finally released a new MacBook Air with updated specs, features, and design in 2018.
There was some unforeseen rain that hit the MacBook Air parade when the laptop's $1,200 price tag was announced. The original model cost $1,000, which was one of its main draws. AdvertisementWith that said, there are still some very good reasons to consider the MacBook Air over the MacBook Pro. Since the MacBook Air has a 13-inch display, I'm mostly comparing it to the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
Check out why you should consider the MacBook Air as your next laptop:
The new MacBook Air is ever so slightly lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
The MacBook Air has better battery life than the 13-inch MacBook Pro
It's thinner overall than the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
All the new MacBook Air models have Touch ID, whereas only the more expensive models of the 13-inch MacBook Pro models have it.
The new MacBook Air is cheaper than any MacBook Pro.
