Owners of the 2019 model can upgrade the device to an 8th-generation 1.7GHz quad-core Core i7 processor. As far as how powerful that upgrade is, there now only appears to be one Geekbench test of the processor. The 2017 MacBook air is now discontinued in the process. Meanwhile, the new Apple MacBook Pro starts at AU$1,999 or AU$1,849 for university students. The devices are equipped with a 58.2 Wh battery that can power the machine for up to 10 hours on a single charge.

Apple says Mac notebooks have neverbeen more popular in higher education, with data from Student Monitor showing that nearly60per cent of United States college notebook buyers own a Mac.

YOU CAN GET EXTRA MONEY OFF: The updated MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are part of Apple's Back to School promotion which is available to higher education students, their parents, faculty, staff and home-school teachers through the Apple Education Store.
