    Apple has just released new Macbook Air laptops. While there aren't major changes to the machines except for the price drop of about $100 across all the four models. The machines will now ship with a faster Intel processor. Starting today, the price of the basic 11.6" Macbook Air will be $899 (earlier $999) and the entry level 13" Macbook Air will be available for $999 (earlier $1099). Both these models will ship with 128 GB of Solid State Drive (SSD) and have 4GB of on-board memory (RAM). The top-end models will carry 256 GB of SSD storage with the 11" costing $1099 and the 13" costing about $1199.

    The Macbook Air will now ship with an upgraded dual-core Intel processor operating at 1.4 GHz (Core i5). All the four machines ship with Intel HD Graphics 5000 to handle the graphics. If you are looking to buy a new Mac, you're getting a good deal!

    It's however expected that Apple will announce a new entry in the Air lineup; a 12" Macbook Air with Retina Display. While the official announcements are just few weeks away; we strongly recommend that you should wait til WWDC, scheduled between 2-6 June in San Francisco.

      One should wait for 12" Macbook Air with Retina Display as it aims to be the thinnest lappy available in the market.

      Retina display is all good; but the cost's going to be quite higher than the regular models. I guess they'd begin at $1299 onwards.

      Apple products were never cheap and not intended for mango people; that's the reason they give best in class quality.

      If that will be an engineering marvel, $1299 is not a lot, right?

      Those who want to know the price of new Macbook Air in India, here we go:

      1. 11" Basic Model: Rs. 65,900
      2. 11" Top Model: Rs. 79,000
      3. 13" Basic Model: Rs. 72,000
      4. 13" Top Model: Rs. 86,000

      Those prices are still way above the competition; but if you've decided to buy a Mac, I think those prices are good! As I said again - you've gotta be waiting for the Retina display model of Macbook Air. It's going to steal the show!

      Can Macbook Air handle heavy software like Adobe Photoshop???

      It can, very well. I'd recommend Adobe Photoshop Elements - it's cheaper and it does most of the things you'd typically do in Photoshop. Plus, there's a wonderful software called Pixelmator; it's damn cheap and can replace PhotoShop's almost every feature.

      I never missed anything after making a switch from Windows; about 4 years ago.
