Aside from obvious internal upgrades like processors and graphics, another area that could see improvement is the display, as the MacBook Air now offers a 1440 x 900 non-Retina display.

At least that's what reliable Apple oracle and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities is saying.

The MacBook Air was unveiled by late Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs 10 years ago, but it has retained its popularity, especially among students. According to a study conducted by Creative Strategies on a panel of 1,300 USA consumers, shows no less than 72 percent of the users who make do with a Microsoft Surface actually want it as their personal device as well, compared to 65 percent in case of the Apple MacBook. The base price of the device will be lowered to $600 to $700 with of course, a new hardware functionality.

Diablo could be coming to Nintendo Switch
In 2016, on the eve of Nintendo's Switch reveal (when the console was still known as the "NX"), Blizzard tweeted this. I doubt we'll hear anything about this project until Blizzard is ready to show the game running in all its glory.

The last minor update to the MacBook Air was announced at last year's Worldwide Developer's Conference. The current models of Macbook Air are certainly outdated. There is a new MacBook Pro available, however, in terms of their ultra-thin laptops, the company has not launched anything new yet to its MacBook Air lineup yet. The 11-inch MacBook Air is nearly lost now since it was launch for $999 in 2016.

Once again, to keep the costs low, we could see Apple implement a single Type-C USB port, but unlike the 12-inch MacBook, this port could provide support for Thunderbolt 3. He offers new supply chain details on the upcoming iPhones of 2018, and about the AirPod demand, among other things. While Kuo doesn't reveal too many details about this purported new MacBook Air, the report does corroborate a similar report fromDigitimes that came out earlier this year.

Until now, Apple has just upgraded the MacBook Air laptops with their software configuration and more storage variants, however there is no anything special to look after until now.
