MacBook Air 2016-thinner-0

The MacBook Air has been for almost 7 years Apple's lightest and most accessible laptop economically speaking of the entire Mac product line. That was until the presentation of the new MacBook 12 ″ presented this year that in terms of portability snatched the scepter from the already veteran MacBook Air.

However, it seems that he is not going to stay here, since according to some rumors from the Taiwan Economic Daily News, It is believed that Apple has in mind to renew the MacBook Air line to launch its successor in 2016 and more specifically at the WWDC event to be held in June.


Regarding the design it is said that it will be thinner coming in sizes of 13 and 15 inches, but unclear if an 11-inch model will also be included. The slimmer design will bring with it a redesign in all areas of the internal components of the equipment, which has made Apple have had to contact all the suppliers to design the architecture capable of housing the maximum possible power in the minimum space. »

Currently many believe that the new MacBook is the "next generation" that has replaced the MacBook Air and that the latter will eventually disappear, however the leaks that speak of a 15-inch variant may mean that Apple would leave the MacBook Air as a range intermediate, eliminating the 11 ″ and instead it would be occupied by the 12 ″ MacBook as ultra-portable brand

For this reason the MacBook Air would be a consumer notebook below the Pro but not so mobility oriented and the new MacBook 12 ″Rather, a balanced range between both sectors in 13 ″ and 15 ″, that is to say, in short, something like the current MacBook Pro but more affordable.
