In order to welcome the arrival of the new semester, Apple updated the MacBook Air and entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro. While releasing the new machine, Apple also retained the tradition of each year, buying qualified products to give away Beats headphones. That is to say, you can get a pair of Beats Studio 3 Wireless headsets by purchasing a qualified Mac laptop or iMac. The market value of the headset is about 2,200 yuan.
Apple announced on the 9th that it will launch an upgraded MacBook Air notebook for its retina The screen has joined the True Tone original color display technology on the iPhone, which is visually more natural and the sameWhen the price is lowered, college students can also enjoy preferential prices.
The screen of the new MacBook Air is still 13.3 inches, with a resolution of 2560×1600. It claims to have a new level of image detail and fidelity, and the text display is clear and sharp, especially the original color display technology will be based on the surrounding environment. Color temperature automatically adjusts the white point value of the display, making web pages and emails look as natural as printed matter.
But in other aspects, including design and hardware configuration, the new MacBook Air is almost exactly the same as the previous generation, which is seriously lacking in sincerity.
100% recycled aluminum metal body, gold/gold/space gray, 15.6 mm thickness, 1.25 kg weight, Touch ID fingerprint recognition, Apple T2 security chip, butterfly structure keyboard, two lightning 3 Interface (USB-C/DP), 3.5mm audio port, 720p camera, 49.9W battery... everything is so familiar.
The processor is still an ultra-low voltage version of Intel’s eighth-generation Core i5-8201Y processor, code-named Amber Lake family, 14nm process, dual-core threads, clocked at 1.6-3.6GHz, integrated nuclear display UHD 617, hot The design power consumption is only 7W.
The standard memory is 8GB LPDDR3-2133, which can be upgraded to 32GB. The standard configuration of the solid state drive is 128GB, 256GB, and can be upgraded to 512GB, 1TB. There are also 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2.
New MacBook Air penThe notebook is priced at 8899 yuan for 8GB/128GB and 10399 yuan for 8GB/256GB, which is 600 yuan and 700 yuan lower than the previous generation.
In addition to the thin and light MacBook Air, Apple has also upgraded the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro, adding the Touch Bar touch bar, Touch ID fingerprint recognition, and mysterious changes in the processor.
The MacBook Pro 13-inch was previously equipped with an Intel eight-generation Core i5 quad-core processor, clocked at 2.4-4.1GHz, integrated core display Iris Plus 655, 128MB eDRAM cache, which belongs to Apple’s customized models, specifications It is similar to Core i5-8259U/8269U, but the frequency is different.
The new entry model is also equipped with Intel eighth generation coolCore i5 is also quad-core, but the frequency is reduced to 1.4-3.9GHz, and the core display has become Iris Plus 645, but it still has 128MB eDRAM cache.
In addition, you can also choose the quad-core i7, the main frequency is increased to 1.7-4.5GHz, and the nuclear display remains unchanged.
There has never been a core display such as Iris Plus 645 in Intel processors before, and considering that the base frequency is only 1.xGHz, one can't help but suspect that this is a Y-series ultra-low power version , But MacBook Pro uses Y-series processors, which doesn't look good at all.
In other aspects, the new version provides original color display retina screen (2560×1600), Apple T2 security chip, 8GB LPDDR3-2133 memory, 128/256GB solid state hard driveDisk, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, 58.2Whr battery and 65W USB-C adapter, the battery life is nominally 10 hours.
The price is 9999 yuan for 8+128GB and 11499 yuan for 8+256GB. College teachers, students and parents can also enjoy new semester discounts.
