Apple set to kill off the MacBook Air


The iconic MacBook Air, first introduced by Steve Jobs in 2008, could be about to be killed off by Apple.

10 years after its initial launch, the ultra-slim, aluminium device with the svelte form starts at 35,900THB but despite its popularity, it is starting to show its age in comparison to the new MacBook and rival machines that have faster processors and more memory.

The latest rumour doing the rounds suggest that Apple is planning to launch a new entry-level MacBook, a 13-inch portable PC.

There has been no word from Apple regarding the matter but any improvement to MacBook Air – or its replacement will surely be welcomed.

Apple has just announced the launch of the HomePod speaker that has been delayed slightly as Apple needed more time to ensure that the device reached their very high standards.

Indeed, the top-end sound quality that is produced is what gives it a huge advantage over its rivals.

As with all Apple’s devices, the HomePod is aimed more at the premium end of the market and combining Apple-engineered audio technology and advanced software to deliver the highest-fidelity sound throughout the room.

Apple claim that the device has spacial awareness that means its sounds will fill the room no matter where it is placed.

Apple is clearly very proud of the device with Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior president of Worldwide marketing saying, “HomePod is a magical new music experience from Apple. It brings advanced audio technologies like beam-forming tweeters, a high-excursion woofer and automatic spatial awareness, together with the entire Apple Music catalogue and the latest Siri intelligence, in a simple, beautiful design that is so much fun to use.

“We’re so excited for people to get HomePod into their homes, apartments and businesses to hear it for themselves. We think they will be blown away by the audio quality.”
