From game consoles to drones, these were the coolest gadgets of 2017

When MacBook Air was reported to unlikely receive a refresh from Apple and a highly-anticipated replacement is on the go, fans have exploded with mixed emotions mainly because it has been an office staple and business companion to many business entities and individual professionals. But the change has come and MacBook Pro 2016 is definitely changing the game of portable computers.

MacBook Air rumors surfaced it did not panned long enough when pundits turned their eyes to the more modern and upscale feature of MacBook Pro 2016. Since then, MacBook Air has been lashed out of its former title "the most portable, lightest, thinnest notebook" and been the subject of enticing promo deals from Apple Store, suppliers and retailers, University Herald wrote. A move that assures Apple's plan to getting rid of Air series.

Still, given its low starting price of $899, I expect the MacBook Air to continue to be sold.

MacBook Air To Transition Into iPad Pro?

At some point, MacBook Air is reviewed as future of computing. In fact, MacBook Air has continuously influenced various laptop designs of today, Mashable reviewed.

Another rumor suggests that the new MacBook Air could be the iPad Pro. Interestingly, this device is what Apple CEO Tim Cook seems to be aiming to match against the Chromebook. However, a fully-outfitted 12.9-inch iPad Pro imcluding keyboard and Apple Pencil actually costs more than a MacBook Air but iPad Pro is a stimulating aim on the future of computing.

So once the MacBook Air does to get a significant refresh, the iPad Pro is good for grabs for Apple users, Mashable added.
