Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at KGI Securities, recently commented that he is quite confident that Apple will introduce an economical MacBook Air during the second quarter of this year, a team that will aim to improve the market share of the Cupertino giant in the portable sector.
Although the well-known analyst has not given specific details about that possible economic MacBook Air the truth is that his prediction makes a lot of sense because although Apple has a fairly comprehensive catalog thanks to the MacBook 12.1 inches and MacBook Pro 13 and 15 inches does not offer any real “affordable” model.
Launching a new MacBook Air with a minimum size of 13 inches and updated specifications at a price below $ 1,000 could be very beneficial for Apple, especially if the composition ratio is well adjusted.
For that economic MacBook Air should have at least a Core 8000U processor, 8 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD.
Taking into account that Ming-Chi Kuo points to the second quarter of this year as the filing date, it is very likely that said the team will come equipped in its base configuration with a Core i3-8130U, a dual-core processor capable of handling four threads that we know it is based on the Kaby Lake R. architecture
This would allow those of Cupertino to offer superior configurations based on Core i5 8000U and Core i7 8000U, much more powerful processors that have four cores and eight threads, with a greater amount of RAM and with larger SSDs.
