When all the rumors for the new MacBook Air refresh started early last year there was one feature that many of us were hoping for, although battery life seemed to be a bit if a concern. The feature in question was a Retina display and the rumors are persistent because they are back.
It seems that many consumer believe that we could finally see a Retina display on the MacBook Air 2014 facelift, along with some other needed changes as well. We are not surprised that rumors of this display technology are back, and this will more than likely be the year that Apple finally gives us what we want.
We also assumed that Apple was going to offer last year’s MacBook Air a facelift because the current design has been with us for a while and even though it is still pretty slick, Apple likes to change things up every once in a while.
However, whether the facelift will happen this year is anyone’s guess, but how awesome would it be to go with something other than aluminum, even though Jony Ive seems to love the material.
What would you like to see the 2014 MacBook Air made of? There are so many materials to choose from but only one gets our vote, and that’s carbon fiber. This material not only looks cool but also is light and very strong. However, we’re not sure if Apple is ready for such a leap yet.
As for the 2014 MacBook Air refresh specs, we expect the usual upgrades such as improved processor and GPU and also improvements to the battery to cope with the Retina display. There is also the small matter of a likely new MacBook Air release date, which we believe will be pretty much the same as last year, which was June.
