MacBook Air 11-inch internal layout remains unchanged

WWDC MacBook Air Inside

During yesterday’s WWDC keynote, one of the biggest announcements on the hardware side was the all new line of MacBook Airs that was unveiled by Apple Senior Vice President Phil Schiller. Schiller announced the new ultra-thin laptops that included drastically increased battery life, much faster graphics, and the new Haswell Intel processors inside. With all of these changes, it was an impressive feat to put all of this new hardware inside the same thin profile.

However, to the surprise of many, the internal design and layout of the 11-inch laptop has not changed at all. That’s right, from the 2012 to 2013 versions, with all of the improvements, Apple has managed to keep everything in the same spot as the older model. While it is impressive that Apple has been able to keep the same layout inside, it was also pointed out that Apple’s online page for the new MacBook Airs note that the 11-inch model is sporting the same 35-watt battery as before, and it is assumed that the Haswell processor contributes to most of the gain in battery life. Be sure to check out the image above for the internal view of the 11-inch model of the new MacBook Air.

    Okay- we waited a year so you could get your Retina Screen sales with the Macbook Pro’s, but it’s unexcusable not to have Retina on this model. Forget about my $1500 this year too.
