Apple’s new line of Macs inspired by iPhone and iPad
Apple unveiled a new line of Macs on Wednesday, upgrading the notebooks and laptops with features inspired by its popular mobile devices, the iPhone and iPad.
The new generation MacBook Air models use flash drives instead of hard drives, allowing them to turn on almost immediately. The larger version, with a 13.3-inch screen, has seven hours of battery life, while the smaller version with an 11.6-inch screen is rated to last five hours. Both have a standby time of 30 days.
Both devices also feature the Multi-Touch trackpad, a built in FaceTime camera for video chats. They will cost between 999 dollars for the smaller notepad with 64 gigabytes of flash storage to 1,599 dollars for a larger model with 256 GB of storage.
