Apple MacBook Air 2018
Display options: 13.3-inch, 2560 x 1600 resolution, non-touch
What's cool about it: In 2018, Apple launched the first redesign for the MacBook Air in years—with major updates to its display, performance and portability. The notebook finally adds Apple's Retina display technology and gets a big boost on screen resolution (from 1440 x 900 previously).
In addition, Apple has significantly narrowed the bezel around the screen—by 50 percent—for a more modern notebook design. The new MacBook Air also moves up to eighth-gen Intel chips, with a dual-core Core i5 (up to 3.6GHz) processor included. And on portability, the notebook weighs 1.24 kg, down from 1.34 kg previously. The new MacBook Air also measures 1.54 cm thick, compared to 1.72 cm previously.
