Apple may Launch Macbook Air 2016 on Black Friday Weekend


Apple’s launch – Macbook Air 2016 Laptop on Black Friday Weekend

It has been rumoured that Apple intends to launch its Macbook Air 2016 laptop on Black Friday weekend falling on November 27 this year. If the rumours tend to be true, the latest Macbook Pro may have several problems with good sales inclusive of great deals for earlier Apple devices together with other products, according to online sources.

 The report by the source states that Apple would be releasing its lightweight laptop early to match up with the beginning of the festive shopping season in the US. But a Black Friday release would be taking away the response from Apple’s new Macbook model since several of the shoppers would be looking out for some appealing deals during the shopping weekend.

It is said that Apple has delayed the launch of the new varieties of Macbook Air as well as Macbook Pro in order that the laptops do not tend to dominate the company’s latest gadget, the iPad Pro. It is likely that theMacbook Air 2016 would pack an Intel Skylake U-chipset under the hood and would be running El Capitan, which is the latest version of Apple’s desktop OS.

Powered by A9X Processor – Various Storage Options

The iPad Pro is provided with a 12.9 inch display together with a stylus known as the Apple Pencil, along with a woven nylon keyboard called the Smart Keyboard. It is powered by an A9X processor with 4 GB of RAM and would be made available in various options of storage.

The Macbook Air is said to be the most powerful laptop of Apple’s till date besides being powered by Intel’s Skylak U-chipset as well as run on El Capitan which is the tech giant’s new operating system. There are plans also that the latest models would be much sleeker which would not be surprising, but would be provided with a Type-C USB port.

 Talks are also on that the new models would be having more powerful RAM as well as Force Touch technology. The Macbook Pro 2016 is also likely to comprise of the same Skylake processor but would probably come in December due to chip found under the code AAPLJ951 in El Capitan.

Two Display Options/Improved Battery/Retina Display

Besides this, others rumour that it includes two display options, a 13 inch screen and a 15 inch screen with improved battery life. MNR Daily has also added that it would most likely be provided with Retina display also.Since Apple had decided to skip their announcement at the time of the company’s unveiling of latest products in September, the new laptops have been subjected to rumours.

 It was earlier reported that Macbook Air 2016 would be launched in time this Christmas while the Macbook Pro 2016 would be made available in spring 2016. Besides this there are reports also that the two new Apple laptops had been delayed to make way for the newly released iPad Pro.

MNR Daily noted that Apple did not desire that the Macbook 2016 should compete with the new iPad which would affect the sales from it.According to the Vine Report, Apple supporters have been wondering on the official launch Macbook Pro 2016 and the Macbook Air 2016since then, making predictions ranging from November to January 2016.

Apple Making The MacBook Air Cheaper And Efficient

MacBook Air
Apple the Cupertino tech giant, the finest laptop and computer making company is all set in making its smallest Mac available to users at reduced price with upgraded processor ina bid to attract new buyers. It has been reported that Apple has dropped its prices on the laptops and will now be selling the cheapest 11.6 inch MacBook Air Model at $899 instead of $999 making the MacBook

Air a lot cheaper and efficient. This means that all Apple fans can now opt for a lighter, cheaper alternative to the MacBook Pro with this price cut with an additional $100 for Retina display if they desire the same.Besides the entry level 13.3 inch Air also saw a $100 slash to $999 from $1,099 and all Apple users in UK now will be getting an even better deal of £100 price cut in the Air line.

The 11.6 inch Air will now start at £749 and the 13.3 inch model will be at £849. These entry models come with 128 GB flash storage and 4 GB of memory and the higher end version comes with a 256 GB solid state drive which also comes with a price cut of $100 in US and £100 in the UK.

The New Air Models Standard and Faster

The new Air models will now come with a standard and faster 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5 processor instead of the 1.3 GHz chip being a minor performance upgrade though the fourth generation Intel Core Haswell process would be more efficient in various ways like power efficiency or cooling with these manufacturing improvements.

Intel’s latest Haswell processor offers a great boost in speed and its main advantage is that it conserves power where the 11 inch and 13 inch MacBook Air notebooks offer around nine to twelve hours of battery life respectively.

Better Battery Life

The main upgrade versions are better battery life with additional iTunes and free iLife together with iWork according to Apple. iTunes movie playback times increases to 12 hours on the 13 inch notebook while the 11 inch will get 9 hours adding to two additional hours of playback time with the updated MacBook Air.

The iLife and iWork comes free with every new Mac.Besides the price cut and the upgrading of the processor, the MacBook Air line remains unchanged though speculations are on that a redesigned Air would be coming up later this year with NPD DisplaySearch and many others hoping that Apple would release a thinner, 12 inch MacBook Air model along with a Retina display, since the Apple’s most portable laptops of 11.6 inch and 13.3 inch are non-Retina resolution displays powered by Intel’s HD 5000 graphics. Most of the users would find the new starting price an attractive offer with both a price drop and a processor boast.

MacBook Air has not seen any major redesigns since 2010 and the new price drop MacBook Air is now available online and in stores for interested users. Macmyth provides the latest updates on Apple technology; do visit the site to get acquainted with the latest updates on technology.

MacBook Air in 2013

The good news is that all models of Macbook Air are having same processor and they have a 11 or 13 inch screen. Hence deciding how to select a MacBook Air is little bit confusing here we are going to give you some to choose a best suited model for you.The four models of MacBook Air 2013 differ only in the size of the screen and the amount of storage and all of them have the same processor (Intel Core i5-4250U 1.3GHz) and the same graphics chip (the Intel HD Graphics 5000). Hence it is not possible to choose one model over the other based on performance, and all are all the same in this regard. This parameter has nevertheless lost importance over the years. The MacBook Air has always been powerful enough for most everyday tasks like web browsing or office. For several generations, they may even face more intensive tasks: many users logically make MacBook Air their primary system. Of course, a MacBook Air will never be a gamer machine, but the new graphics chip allows them to run more than games from iOS or older titles. Of course, a MacBook Air will never be a graphics workstation, but it does not have major problems with Aperture or Lightroom on the ground. And of course, a MacBook Air is always a great "digital typewriter." If however you are looking for maximum power in a small footprint, take a look at the processor option. Core i5 is then replaced by a Core i7-4650U 1.7GHz able to climb to 3.3 GHz peak and therefore face Xcode, larger photos in Aperture or even footage in FCP X. For the first time, this option offers the good qualities of the MacBook Air: the price-performance ratio remains the same (12% more expensive, you get a machine 12% faster) and autonomy remains excellent.

The screen size is now more than ever a key factor in choosing a MacBook Air, since all are of equal configuration, it is not quite the same thing with an 11-inch MacBook Air and a MacBook Air 13 inches. The 11-inch MacBook Air is obviously more mobile, smaller and lighter than 13 inches. Its screen has a higher than the MacBook Pro 13-inch (1366 x 768 px) definition, but its 16:9 aspect ratio is a bit narrow in height. It is a little less comfortable and first made for the road with eight hours of battery life. However, do not forget that you can connect a MacBook Air to an external display (Thunderbolt / DisplayPort or HDMI / DVI / VGA via adapter). The MacBook Air 13-inch is a little more traditional: a full size keyboard and trackpad are as comfortable as those of the MacBook Pro. And a screen 1440 x 900 pixel is defined as the 13-inch MacBook Pro! It is a machine and all terrain use. It actually takes the place of the iBook or MacBook in the role of the machine quite capable, but no frills, at a reasonable price and with exceptional battery life of 12 hours.

While most of the MacBook Pro and iMac come with 8 GB of RAM, the MacBook Air comes with 4 GB of RAM. Apple sells its very expensive RAM, but you have no choice but to buy from it: the MacBook Air RAM modules are welded. Maybe if your budget is limited, choose staffing memory than storage. The SSD MacBook Air anyway narrow and require the use of external storage, so as to make the most economical choice and more beneficial in the long term. Again, you can never increase the RAM of the MacBook Air, then you will have no trouble to change his cap SSD or to add an external drive. Some probably expect Apple may finally decide to build the MacBook Air with a Retina display. It is true that the integrated graphics solutions make anything possible today, but this time Apple has special autonomy (up) and the price (down). Furthermore, the Retina large screens still suffer from problems of production and quality that still differs a little MacBook Air.

MacBook Pro Retina and MacBook Air Prices Lowered

Apple has adjusted its notebook range Retina and the MacBook Air, changing some elements of their configurations and some prices. For Retina it involves both the 13 "released in October that the 15" June. This step has taken to make these machines more accessible to the wide spread community. Even its price was criticized at the time of their launch more particularly for the 13”. These price reductions definitely mitigate the reproaches. The actual tariff revision involved was not included for its phones. The Mac sales had declined to 15.2% as compared to the same quarter of the last year. This may be added possible reduction in the price and in the upstream production cost of these screens and their new arrival in the portable pc’s. the similar news about laptops could not be expected before this summer until the new arrival of Intel processors.

The price of 13 "MacBook Pro Retina starts from 1499 € instead of 1749 € with its Core i5 2.5 GHz and 128 GB SSD. Following model is € 1,699 instead of € 2,049 with 256 GB SSD and a sees its new processor frequency from 2.5 GHz to 2.6 GHz (Turbo Boost to 3.2 GHz instead of 3.1 GHz). Such adjustment of the family 13 "comes about five months after marketing.

The 15 "Retina always uses around a Core i7 processor with four cores. Its frequency from 2.3 GHz to 2.4 GHz for the first model and 2.6 GHz to 2.7 GHz for the most powerful. Model high end 15 "also takes 8 GB of RAM for 16 GB offer price fell to € 2199 and € 2799 instead of € 2279 and € 2899.

SSD options have also become more accessible, 256 GB, 512 GB and 768 GB are now at 200 €, 500 € and 900 € instead of 300 €, 800 € and 1300 €.

Note that one of the two MacBook Pro 15 " (standard screen), the top model at 2.6 GHz, has disappeared from the catalog ... or almost. In the state there are only 2 , 3 GHz to 1799 € instead of 1879 €., but by going into options include everything needed to make a custom machine (RAM, SSD, CPU and storage type). By configuring the laptop to find the Version removed, we gain a little less than 50 € on the old tariff.

Vizio: an entry in the PC design

Earlier this year at CES in Las Vegas, the American Vizio, maker of televisions and Blu-ray players, unveiled its first line of future PC. Piece of portable and whose lines were familiar. A few iMac, MacBook Air a little, a touch of Magic Trackpad all coated aluminum. The Verge dedicated a portrait of this California-born 10 years ago, now just over 400 employees and who managed against all odds to climb to first place in sales of HDTVs in the U.S...

CES 2012: Apple in all heads - I

CES 2012 is now closed. More than ever, it suffers from a paradox: although Apple is absent from his whereabouts, she was very present in the minds of exhibitors and visitors. Between products very "inspired" and real innovations, the ESC 2012 again raises the question of the relevance of these giant rooms.

For example, the products most in demand during a period (iPad, MacBook Air) are not available for resellers like him while Apple and its partners in the mass distribution are properly delivered.

2012: Challenges for Apple -II

The MacBook Air as a source of inspiration?

End of 2010, the MacBook Air was introduced as the future of Mac. And coincidentally, the site of Apple computers to promote OS X Lion are systematically MacBook Air. Last year, Apple has pushed the point home by giving its ultraportable processor powerful enough that it can be used as a primary computer. Will the "revolution MacBook Air" will finally contaminate the rest of the range or will it expand with the arrival of a new model with a 15-inch screen? It is inclined to favor the second hypothesis. In this case, the question is whether Apple will give a "facelift" to its professional range or if it will let it quietly grow old and accelerate the transition to the MacBook Air.

2012: Challenges for Apple

2011 was good for Apple financially. A figure attests to its success: its annual sales in 2011 (ended in late September), amounting to 108 billion dollars. The Cupertino company is now a relatively small club of companies that make over $ 100 billion of turnover.

Unquestionable financial success, but paradoxically one year fairly quiet in terms of news products. Not true major innovations as was the case in 2010, for example with the iPad. But we can not do the "revolution" .2011 was especially synonymous with renewal software with OS X Lion and iOS 5, and a new beginning in terms of services or with icloud Siri. A "renewal program" challenged, because if iOS 5 is a major release if only because it releases the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch from the tutelage of Mac and PC, OS X Lion is without Apple probably the animal that makes the unanimously least for some time.

Apple quietly released new MacBook Pro

The new MacBook Pro were not expected until next week, but they are already available in the Apple Store. Apple has not even closed its online store for the occasion: this update is pretty minor in the program with new processors, hard drives slightly larger and more powerful graphics cards for the 15 and 17 inches. The previous models were dated February if we forget the change of keys on the occasion of the release of OS X Lion. This review is timely appointed to the holiday season and it can wait before the release of Ivy Bridge, the new platform that Intel is behind schedule and will not be available until early spring 2012 .

Which MacBook Air and Mac mini 2011 to choose? - II

If the distinction between the different models of Mac mini may be fairly clear, the thing is more subtle with the MacBook Air: you can not directly oppose 11 "and 13", with two very different uses. This question is to be removed: the 11 "ultra-mobile but a little less independent, the 13" not necessarily much harder to transport and more autonomous. Both are thin, lightweight, have a screen with a resolution thrust, and are very comfortable to use thanks to its SSD.
