Apple is infamous for its strategic, year-end keynotes that highlight the brightest of their new product lineup just before the holidays. This year, the tech giant has unveiled a remarkably efficient reiteration of their core product — and at the forefront of this bold reevaluation is the all-new MacBook Air with Retina display.

Apple retains all of the things you love about the previous models of the Air but has consciously altered the aluminum body to be more sleek, efficient, and weight-conscious. Made from 100 percent recycled aluminum, which marks a departure from traditional aluminum design to focus on a more eco-friendly production process, the laptop will also will also see a healthy boost into the realm of Retina display, with nearly four million pixels (four times more than the previous model), and a redesigned keyboard. It will feature up to 16GB of expandable memory, 1.5TB of SSD storage, an eighth-gen Intel Core i5 processor, and a battery life of up to 12 hours. There’s a slew of other, more intricate upgrades — perfect for the on-the-go prosumer. The 13-inch offering is available for pre-order now on Apple’s website.
