Just in time for the holidays, Apple has announced the official introduction of revamped Macs. During an event on Oct. 27th,  Apple has promised to roll out modern iterations of the coveted models. It wont create as much buzz as an iPhone release, but Apple customers are said to be in for a treat. 

First, the MacBook Air may not get that much attention this year, seeing as though it is Apple's entry level laptop. Although the display quality  could use an upgrade, the chances are slim. Reports have indicated that the 11-inch model will be discontinued, speculating that the 12 and 13-inch models would receive major price cuts.

Other reports have stated that the 13- and 15 inch MacBook Pros are getting thinner, with Thunderbolt 3 support. With customization features such as an OLED function key bar and TouchID, maybe these upgrades can take the Pro to new heights and off the shelves. In conjunction, the MacBook Air 13- inch model is said to receive a USB Type-C port and Thunderbolt 3. Personally, I would like to see an enhancement to the 13-inch Air's design aesthetic. Its archaic, non-Retina display is far behind the rest of cyber world. But until that day comes or if Apple decides to surprise us with new features, stay tuned for more updates on the new roll-out of Macs next week.
