Apple’s renewed focus on the Mac side of its business continues this month with a long-awaited make-over for what the company claims is “the most beloved notebook ever”.
There’s some truth to that claim, as the slimline MacBook Air has continued to sell well in recent years despite the fact that — aside from the occasional modest speed-bump — its basic design has remained unchanged since its debut in 2008. But a decade of neglect has seen this former flagship laptop relegated to Apple’s ‘entry-level’ offering for students and home users.
That leaves the 2018 edition of the MacBook Air with a lot of lost ground to make up. But, as with the similarly revitalized Mac Mini, it does seem as though Apple is listening to this product’s many admirers once again.
