If you are still stuck with your old MacBook Air and were thinking of upgrading, we have some good news for you. The new Apple MacBook Air 2018 is now available for purchase in Nepal, and we are not complaining about the pricing either.
The new MacBook Air gets a design refresh, in an all-new 2018-ish look. It also gets a beautiful retina display with smaller bezels and better colors reproduction. Specs include the 8th gen Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128/256GB solid-state storage. Paired with the MacOS Mojavi, and you should have no problems with performance.
The Keyboard has also been improved while the trackpad is now 20% bigger. You even get a TouchID for secure logins and online payments. Being a MacBook, you can’t complain about its battery life that pushes over 10 hours of general usage. Complementing the “Air” tagline the laptop is pretty light at just 1.25Kgs and a thickness of 0.61″.
If you re thinking of buying this laptop, probably as a new year gift for yourself, there are a few things you should know beforehand. For one, this laptop isn’t the lightest laptop from Apple, nor is the cheapest. Its predecessor shared lots of exclusive features and was a very compelling offer, not the same case with the 2018 model.
But if you are into MacOS or want an Apple laptop, this should be a good place to start. The 128GB version of the laptop is priced at Rs 168,000 while the 256GB will cost you Rs 196,000. If you don’t necessarily need a MacOS, there are definitely better options out there.
