Apple's second fall event focused on product categories that were languishing and in dire need of a refresh. The MacBook Air is Apple's most popular Mac and beloved by students, writers and office workers everywhere and now there's a new version. 

The latest 13-inch MacBook Air now features a Retina Display, powerful 8th generation Intel Core i5 processors, Intel UHD Graphics and faster 2133 MHz system memory up to 16GB. SSDs are now available up to 1Terabyte although the base model still ships with a rather stingy 128 GB of SSD storage and starts at CAD $ 1,199.00.

Other notable upgrades include the inclusion of Touch ID for fingerprint recognition, dual Thunderbolt ports in USB Type-C standard, Apple's T2 security chip and most importantly, the new MacBook Air features a13.3-inch Retina display with over 4 million pixels of resolution with 48 percent more colour than the previous generation, images are more lifelike than ever. MacBook Air is available for preorder on and will ship November 7.
