Did you know the 13-inch MacBook Air got upgraded too?

Did you know the 13-inch MacBook Air got upgraded too?

 

Besides updating the MacBook lineup with better specs and a rose gold finish, Apple also gave the 13-inch MacBook Air a slight spec bump. 

All configurations of the 13-inch MacBook Air will come with 8GB RAM standard. Previously, the 8GB RAM was available as a US$100 upgrade option. With this upgrade, the 13-inch MacBook Air is positioned more competitively with its Windows counterparts in the same price range. 

However, the fate of the MacBook Air remains bleak; its display resolution hasn't been upgraded and the design remains unchanged since 2010. Would Apple retire the MacBook Air in favor of the MacBook, which is dubbed "the future of the notebook"?
