MacBook Air 8,2 (13-Inch, 2019) – Full Information, Specs

The MacBook Air 8,2 (13-Inch, 2019) announcement marks the first update to this particular line of computers to have been made since the fall 2018 release of the more compact MacBook air with improved display functions, a more expansive trackpad and innovative features, such as Touch ID. The starting price of the MacBook Air appearing at $1,099 – a $100 cheaper than the 2018 model – makes it the most affordable MacBook at the time of its release. This introduction does, however, eliminate the previously available $949 MacBook air, making it now impossible to purchase any MacBook Air for under $1000.
