Reports say that this Ultrabook is exquisitely-built, fully metal machine that's thin, light and very attractive. This lightweight system can easily take on any task whether it's browsing the web, watching video or editing images. What's more, its seven hour battery life is exceptional,

Surface Book, Lenovo Yoga 900 and Samsung Notebook 9 are also expected to put MacBook Air 2016 to shame. Apple is yet to comment about these MacBook Air 2016 reports. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for more news and updates!
