The Air was last given a boost in June this year with new Intel processors and graphics.
The rest of the specs are unchanged from the 2016 model, which itself only added an extra 4GB of RAM (to 8GB) across the board.
It has a great heritage as the ultimate ultra-portable and it has been more than eight years since Steve Jobs stood on stage and pulled one out of a manilla envelope. The lineup only includes the 13.3-inch model now, as the 12-inch MacBook took the place of the tiny 11-inch Air.
When choosing an Air you can still opt for one of the older models by shopping in the Apple refurb store, a wise option if you really are limited on cash but know you want a little Apple laptop.
