The MacBook Air gets a revival, now smaller, more powerful and comes with Retina Display. Starts from RM5,249, ships in four weeks

After a year plus hiatus, the MacBook Air is back. Apple today announced an all-new redesigned and re-engineer MacBook Air that brings Retina Display, a larger display along with a few other updates. The display is now 13.3 inches with a 2,560 x 1600 resolution. The display has 50% narrower bezels compared to the outgoing MacBook Air too. Unfortunately, you don’t get a touch display like the Surface Pro, there’s no Touch Bar either but at least you get Apple’s TouchID fingerprint scanner as well as support for Siri.

If you’re looking for some great deals on Apple products, you might want to check out the Switch Warehouse Clearance sale happening from 2nd to 4th March.

Tronsmart’s making fast-charging easy with their brand new accessories

In the past, fast-charging was something you could only find on flagship smartphones. Unless you’re on iPhone, but even Apple’s caught up there too. The beauty of technology is that as time goes on, these “flagship features” start trickling down to the smartphone range.
