As expected, Apple has launched its refreshed variant of MacBook Air models this morning to the market. The updates do not offer any big changes, but features faster versions of Intel’s Haswell processors, and are surprisingly $100 cheaper than their earlier version. All MacBook Air models are now powered by 1.4 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, compared to the 1.3 GHz processor powered earlier siblings of this lineup.

These updated variants are available in several regions of European countries, but they will most likely be hitting in the U.S. and elsewhere very shortly.



Still there is no sign of most awaited 12-inch Macbook Air with Retina Display which is supposed to come mid of this year. Do you know this is the first refreshment since mid 2013.



All variants are now powered by 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz) with 3 MB shared L3 cache, along with 4GB RAM, and house dual-microphones and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. Two USB 3.0 ports and 1 Thunderbolt port are offered in all models, with the Apple 13-inch MacBook Airs are also coming with a SDXC card slot.
