However, the tech company made a big point of saying how portable this new Macbook Air is. It also comes with 20% improved speaker output and 3-microphone array for great video calling experience. The display has over 4 million pixels, which should make text and images more detailed. Apple's best selling laptop (and cheapest one, incidentally) has been in need of a refresh for years, and today we finally got it. While the previous MacBook Air weighed in a 2.96 pounds, Apple has managed to shave even more weight off its successor, which comes in at 2.75 pounds. Preorders open today, and Apple will begin shipping the new laptops on November 7th. Apple's expertise in screen technology continues to impress, and putting this new MacBook Air alongside your existing model could be enough on its own to get you to open your wallet.

It features a 50.3Wh battery that is said to provide up to 12 hours of wireless Web browsing, 13 hours of iTunes movie playback, and 30 days of standby time. The device has 16GB of memory and up to 1.5TBSSD support.
