- New MacBook Air rumours – anyone know anything?
What Jamie said. I’m really hoping that there’s an MBP refresh in June. Macrumors seem to believe that their making a 12″ Air if that’s what you’re into. I think.
I’m coming out of uni and have wanted one for 5 years, the thought of spending that whilst I’m still a student scared me though. I can almost feel the unibody 😀Posted 3 years agowlMember
Folk are saying there might be a new MacBook Air out in a week or two. Anyone know anythingt about this? Likelihood of it being true, and what the changes/costs might be? About to drop a grand on a MacBook Pro but don’t want to puke if a significantly improved new Air comes out the day after. Ta for any info.Posted 3 years ago
The MacRumors site is exactly that, however on this I think they have a good lead. Whether Apple will continue with (say) 11″ and 13″ Airs with a new 12″ retina Air or whether they reduce the choice of screen size it’s seems very likely thee will be a new retina Air quite soon.
As for waiting for technology, that’s always a bit pointless and there will always be something better along “soon”. The plus with Apple is kit has good second hand value so you can sell and buy the new release each year or two.
In terms of the range the Air and Maczbook Pro are quite similar in weight really since the Pro slimmed down, the Air is super thin and also the CPU is deliberately slowed so it uses less power and thus has longer battery life.
OP wait for the new Air to decide and get 8gb RAM and 256SSD – storage you can add externally in the future if you need it.Posted 3 years ago
@pete Tuesday is a special day. There is a bit of a geek’s in-joke about Tuesday releases especially on the Mac Mini thread. There are a lot of us hoping for a refresh of the Mini, any Tuesday will do.
@Jamie WWDC could annoiunce something big like iWatch, with sales to start in Autumn. A new 12″ retina Air they can announce now.Posted 3 years agokelvinSubscriber
I was buying a refurb MacBook Air for my mum yesterday, but then saw this.
By buying today instead I got the 256GB version for the price I was going to pay for the 128GB yesterday.
By the way, the Apple refurb store now has Airs for as little as £549.Posted 3 years agobob_summersMember
Was thinking of getting the 13″ for skool next year but maybe they’re a bit long in the tooth now. Chances of the 12″ appearing before Sept?
Or, since I’d be dual booting to Linux (prob. bin the mac OS altogether), maybe worth looking at this?
criteria – has to be dead light for the commute, hook up to a projector (vga, or hdmi with adaptor) and USB interactive whiteboard, and last a schoolday without charge (though for the macbook at least, there are chargers knocking around anyway)Posted 3 years ago
