It was the year 2008 when Apple pulled out the ultra-slim MacBook Air from a manila envelope and wowed the world. In the ten years since, and the world has come a long way since. All this while, the MacBook Air remained largely the same. Continuity is good, but it eventually started to show signs of age. Ultra slim laptops running Microsoft’s Windows became common and offered more powerful specifications too. The iPad and subsequently the iPad Pro effectively replaced the 11-inch variant of the MacBook Air. It was resting on its laurels, of which there were many, as the MacBook Air still flew off the shelves in stores. I would know, having bought one last year. It was still a very capable laptop for most use cases. However, a proper refresh was inevitable. It has been pending for many years now. Fans were craving it. The updated MacBook Air is a bit of a puzzle in some ways, but that doesn’t take away from its brilliance. Nor the really hard to justify price tag. The 128GB storage variant is priced at Rs1,14,900 while the 256GB version will set you back by Rs1,34,900.
