The MacBook Air looks set to get its most radical update yet

While all eyes have been on Apple’s new MacBook Pro, which was revealed at the company's autumn event last Monday, rumours are already now spiralling about its next laptop, widely expected to be an update of the lighter MacBook Air.

The familiar Air name has served it well through four generations to summarise what the more affordable device is about, as a lighter, slimmer version of its high-end sibling. The latest rumours suggest that might now change, but, despite changes in design, the replacement name that's reportedly being considered is far from radical (If you are searching for a MacBook of any kind, make sure you check out our best Apple deals).
