New rumors doing the rounds recommend that Apple may launch a brand new 15-inch MacBook Air in 2023. This might both be the perfect determination Apple has ever made – or an enormous mistake.
The rumor comes from a report by Show Provide Chain Consultants which means that Apple is engaged on a MacBook Air that has a display round 15-inches in measurement, which is able to launch alongside a “barely bigger” 13-inch MacBook Air.
This isn’t the primary time a 15-inch MacBook Air has been mooted, after all. As MacRumors factors out, Apple has apparently been toying with the thought way back to 2008. However up to now, the corporate has saved to a 13-inch kind issue for its skinny and light-weight laptop computer.
The thought of a 15-inch MacBook Air has definitely excited lots of people. In the intervening time, should you’d like a MacBook with a display measurement bigger than 13-inches, you have to purchase a drastically costlier MacBook Professional. Not solely are the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Execs costlier, they provide a degree of efficiency geared toward professionals, so many individuals wanting a MacBook for extra informal use can be paying for options and specs they merely don’t want.
A 15-inch MacBook Air might be the perfect answer, then, providing a extra inexpensive large-screen MacBook with smart specs. If carried out proper, it may very properly be the perfect laptop computer ever made, just like the 13-inch MacBook Air (M1, 2020) presently is, but when these rumors are true (and that’s an enormous ‘if’) I received’t be shopping for one.
Evaluation: 13-inch for the win
There are many causes to like the MacBook Air (M1, 2020), however chief amongst them is the truth that it’s skinny, mild and simply transportable. A whole lot of that is due to the truth that it has a 13-inch display, and I’m involved that any MacBook Air that comes with a bigger display may lose that portability.
Dell, one among Apple’s nice rivals, has proven with the XPS 15 that it’s doable to make a skinny, mild and classy 15-inch laptop computer, however over the various years I’ve been reviewing and utilizing laptops, I’ve at all times most popular 13-inch laptops.
For a begin, I typically work whereas commuting on bus and practice, and a 13-inch laptop computer is rather more snug to try this with. My previous work machine was a 15-inch MacBook Professional, nevertheless it was just too massive to make use of on a pull-out tray on a practice.
Work has since changed the 15-inch MacBook Professional with a 13-inch Floor Laptop computer Go, and whereas on paper which will look like a downgrade, I’ve really discovered myself utilizing the Floor Laptop computer Go much more than I ever used the 15-inch MacBook Professional, as a consequence of it being really easy to hold round and use on public transport.
It’s additionally why I fell in love with the MacBook Air, and why I like to recommend it to mainly anybody on the lookout for a brand new laptop computer. It’s additionally why I most popular the MacBook Professional 14-inch (2021) to the MacBook Professional 16-inch (2021). Regardless of them basically having the identical specs, the smaller 14-inch mannequin simply felt extra spectacular and extra handy.
So if there’s certainly going to be a 15-inch MacBook Air sooner or later, and even when it’s the perfect laptop computer ever made, I nonetheless in all probability received’t purchase it. However, for these of you who like bigger laptop computer screens, it might be a genius transfer by Apple.
