If you’ve always wanted to have that Apple logo on your laptop but you’re not ready to pay the price, then here is a chance of a lifetime. Apple is expected to launch MacBook Air, which according to rumors is the cheapest MacBook from the company.
According to reports from Master Herald, the new Apple MacBook Air will be priced at $899. It will be out in the market in 2016 and will be the cheapest from the brand ever.
The report from Venture Capital Post has cited some specifications of the 2016 version of MacBook air. According to the report, there will be marked improvements in terms of screen resolution. Intel Core M-based Skylake processor will be present in the new version.
The base model will have an internal memory of 128GB with 4GB RAM. The set-up model will come with 256GB hard drive while the top model will have Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD.
Selling the predator model at a lower or discounted price always gives indication that a new model is on its way. Apple is currently giving discount on MacBook Air 2015 version. The 128GB model is now available for $824.99 while the 11-inch, 256GB model is available for $1044.99. The price for the 13-inch models are $849 and $1139.
It is also stated that the MacBook Air 2016 will have a slim design. Higher-definition retina display can also be expected in the new model.

Apple may be releasing the MacBook Air at the same time as Surface Pro 4, which will also have the same Skylake processor. It will come with Windows 10 but when prices are compared, it will be far too expensive than the Apple product. Apple must have taken the challenge to compete with Surface pro 4 and grab the market the company had expected.
Surface Pro 4 will be available in 12-inch and 14-inch variants. It will sport 4GB RAM. The internal storage starts from 128GB which can go up to 1TB.
