Apple has upgraded its 12 Inch Macbook models with Intel Skylake Processor yesterday and another new addition is, its Macbook Air also gets an update of 8GB RAM as default memory from 4GB. This is exclusive for 13 inch model and not for 11 inch macbook air model, which you have to spend extra $100 for 8GB of RAM. This shows apple is not going to kill Macbook Air line up anytime soon and still want to sell its thin Macbook Air models with slight memory boost and no change to its pricing.
Now, that’s a good news for people who still want to buy Macbook Air. Except non Retina Display, Macbook Air is definitely the best buy in market today at its price range. It beats 12 inch Macbook model in terms of performance. So, i personally recommend Macbook Air as an excellent buy when you can find few more bucks discount at apple stores or in Online Shopping sites.
Macbook Air 13 inch model comes with 1.6GHz Dual Core Intel Core i5 processor that can turbo boost up to 2.7GHz. It has Intel HD Graphics 6000 memory and you can choose between 128GB or 256GB PCIe-based flash storage. You can configure the processor to 2.2 GHz Core i7 processor while ordering online for extra $150.
It is the best choice by apple, making 8GB default RAM capacity at this price point. For all your basic Internet browsing, watching movies online, keeping several tabs open in safari, chrome and firefox, Macbook Air 2016 model with 8GB RAM upgrade is definitely the best buy.
