Macbook Air 2016 to launch March 2016 sports thinner design, USB-C ports, HD Retina display and other power specs
There are reports going around that Apple is currently working on its 2016 MacBook Air. The Macbook Air will feature a monumental overhaul of its 2015 MacBook Air to compete against the Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
The upcoming Macbook Air 2016 has been speculated by previous reports for having different variants. The base model is expected to offer 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD, while a step-up model with a 256GB SSD and a top-tier model with a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD.
According to Master Herald, Apple is probably waiting for Intel's new Core M-based Skylake processors to launch, which will allegedly be used on the 2016 MacBook Air.
On the other hand, Fool.com has stated that the new MacBook Air 2016 will feature a new slim industrial design. It may also feature USB-C ports on the device and a substantially enhanced display. A resolution greater than 1440 x 900 for the 13-inch version and greater than 1366 x 768 for the 11-inch version would be ideal for its IPS display.
Moreover, the Macbook Air 2016 will also be expected to put on a higher definition Retina display for its two size versions-one at 13 inches and the other at 15 inches. The screen will undoubtedly look and work much better with the Skylake processors from Intel powering up the device.
The latest news suggests that in October this year, the Macbook Air 2016 will be announced officially and will be available by March 2016. In contrast, Microsoft is also widely expected to release its Surface Pro 4 which is a tablet-laptop hybrid by the end of 2015. It seems that we will definitely witness a big clash between the Macbook Air 2016 and Surface Pro 4.
With all this in one exciting package, the Macbook Air 2016 will absolutely give the purported Microsoft Surface Pro 4. Apple is confident of taking on Microsoft's "laptop killer" with its all-new, thinner Retina Macbook Air.
