    A friend of mine is upgrading from a 2010 MacBook to a new MacBook Air this week. They'll be moving from Snow Leopard with Office 2011. I know Office 2011 is a bit iffy in High Sierra, but it does work in Sierra.

    So - does anyone know what version of Mac OS a brand new MacBook Air would have installed on it? I ask because, I myself bought a new Air just over a year ago direct from Apple and it came running El Capitan, months after Sierra had launched.

    I'm not sure what the MBA will be running but you can always downgrade to an earlier OS release from High Sierra.

    High Sierra. I bought one for a colleague a few weeks ago.

    Don’t be so sure. I just received a 2017 13” MacBook Pro today and it has Sierra on it. Seems to be a crapshoot.

    Ahh interesting. I had thought mine might have been an anomaly when I got El Capitan last year. Did you buy direct from Apple too?
