Apple discounts MacBook Air, discontinues non-Touch Bar MacBook Pro”

It also features the new keyboard design that Apple introduced back in May with the updated MacBook Pros in an attempt to solve keyboard issues that have been plaguing users.

The 2019 MacBook Air price in India now starts from Rs. 99,900, while college students can get it at Rs. 92,074.

In addition to the MacBook Air's $100 price cut, bringing the starting price to $1,099, it's also getting True Tone support for its Retina display, Apple said in a press release. The old dual-core CPU is gone, swapped out for an 8th generation quad-core Intel Core i5 (Coffee Lake).

The announcement was made just in time for the back-to-school season in the USA and Europe but Malaysian students can also enjoy additional discounts. The 2018 MacBook Air (review) also gets a minor update. It will be available for $1,199 for college students.

Prior to this update, the non-True Tone model with 128GB storage was originally priced at RM5,249 while the 256GB version was going for a whopping RM6,099. Apple has detailed the new pricing of the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro laptops in India as well.

The Rs. 1,19,900 price tag is the same as the outgoing non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro.

If you're interested, the new MacBook Air is now available on the Apple Online store and it is ready to be shipped in one business day. In the USA, the refreshed MacBook Pro is priced at $1,299, while college students get it at $1,199 - it will go on sale in the USA later this week. Apple has also updated the $1,299 MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar, Touch ID and 8th-gen Intel Core CPUs.

Apple's back-to-school promotion, which starts today, also includes Beats Studio 3 Wireless headphones with the purchase of qualifying Mac notebooks and iMacs.

In terms of hardware, the updated MacBook Air is identical to the current model that was announced in October past year.

The main differences now between the entry-level MacBook Pro and pricier model is two Thunderbolt 3 ports versus four ports, faster performance and more powerful Iris graphics.

This new simplicity in the product line would have been incomplete apart from the third big change today: the death of the 12-inch MacBook.
