Apple updates Macbook Air range, cuts prices by £100


US based tech giant Apple has reportedly revamped its Macbook Air notebook line on its official online store for 2014. Apple has introduced an even faster processor, as well as better integrated Intel graphics. The latest updates were quietly launched in the Apple Store on April 28, 2014 and have been made available for the full Macbook Air range, from the entry-level 11-inch model with 128 GB of storage capacity.

Meanwhile, the 2014 Macbook Air received only a few minor improvements. The processor of the device gets a boost from the previous 1.3 GHz dual core CPU to a brand new dual core 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5 Haswell processor and even though this is not much, it is still an improvement. So far, there is no update to a Retina display, even though a number of Apple users have been hoping for it.

The screen features the same 1,440 x 900 resolution, but it can be noticed that the 2014 Macbook Air processors can be Turbo Boosted up to 2.7 GHz, as opposed to the 2.6 GHz limit in the 2013 models. Apart from the CPU enhancements, the only other upgrade in 2014 Macbook Air line-up is integrated graphics. Despite the processor boost, the price of the Macbook Air is £100 cheaper than the 2013 edition.
