MacBook Pro in 2016 is the latest computer released by Apple worldwide but refrained from refreshing their MacBook Air line-up. However just last February Best Buy reduces the price of the MacBook Air which indicates that a new model is coming soon.
Retailers as a rule need to dispose of all their old stock before the new stock becomes an integral factor. And keeping in mind that this could in all likelihood be the situation, it is additionally conceivable that it has nothing to do with another model being presented by any means.
As indicated by MacWorld, Best Buy reduced their cost for the MacBook Air in February. Ordinarily, a lessening in retail cost proposes that a more current model will arrive. However, rumors have been running rampant that Apple may discontinue the MacBook Air lineup altogether.
Last year, the Cupertino-based technology giant released the new MacBook Pro 2016, and all the MacBook Air got was a RAM update for its 13-inch variants. During Apple's October event in 2016, the company debuted the new MacBook Pro and even compared it to the MacBook Air says Inquisitr.
It was revealed that the MacBook Pro 2016 was slimmer and smaller than the MacBook Air, which resulted in speculations that the latter would be axed entirely. After all, the MacBook Air was always known for being the smaller of the two laptops.
However, some people have remained optimistic about the possibility of a new MacBook Air coming this year. Should the lineup get a refresh, it is expected that the device will sport Intel's Kaby Lake processor, a USB Type-C port, an Apple Pencil-supported trackpad, Touch ID with Force Touch and possibly even a Retina display. There has also been talk of an E-ink keyboard arriving with the MacBook Air 2017.
As for a potential release date, rumor has it that the new MacBook Air could see a launch between March and May of this year. However, since these speculations have not been confirmed yet, readers are advised to take this news with a grain of salt.
