This, iterative version of the MacBook Air increases memory, storage, and chip speed fairly dramatically. At this point, the performance trade offs of previous generations is no longer present and the main differentiator between a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro is the availability of a retina display. With up to 8GB of ram and a 512GB SSD this is a killer laptop for daily use by just about everyone.
Rumors: We are expecting an update to the MacBook Air at some point in the future that includes a Retina display. There haven’t been many rumors pointing to other possible enhancements to the MacBook Air, though the current form-factor is now over two years old.
