Apple announced a new model of its lightweight MacBook Air laptop on Tuesday during its event in Brooklyn, New York.

In terms of design, the company says the all-new MacBook occupies 17 percent less volume than the previous generation MacBook Air.

The Apple MacBook Air is one of the most successful laptops of the past decade.

Battery-wise, the new MacBook Air can play iTunes movies for up to 13 hours, Apple said. The display's resolution has been quadrupled, now containing over four million pixels with 48 percent more color, with the FaceTime camera still at the top of the laptop. It weighs 1.25kg, down from 1.34kg of the previous generation.

The fully-refreshed MacBook Air starts at $1199 with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. It is priced at $1,199 (roughly Rs. 88,200), and goes up for pre-orders in the U.S. today, with availability from November 7.

Here we run through everything you need to know about the new MacBook Air, including its price and availability, design and hardware configurations, as well as what our early impressions of the new hardware is, too.

After years of stagnation, the lightest in the line of MacBook products is getting the makeover that we've all been waiting for (and didn't think would ever happen). Another highlight feature is Touch ID, which is now found on as a key on the keyboard, and powered by the company's T2 chip. The keyboard itself has been upgraded for a better and more reliable typing experience, and the new Force Touchpad below this is 20 percent larger.

Meanwhile, Apple's new MacBook Air features a 13.3-inch Retina Display and comes with Touch ID support.

The Air is the only computer in Apple's current line-up that lacks the Retina display now it gets one. MacBook Air 2018 model can now connect to a whole host of devices including external storage, docks for additional ports, 4K and 5K displays, and eGPUs for faster graphics.

Apple CEO Tim Cook presents the new MacBook Air. Those perforations aren't just for show, either; they house speakers that are 25% louder and deliver two-times the amount of bass than that of the previous MacBook Air, according to Apple.
