Apple’s new Macbook Air is an amazing upgrade over the last year model, and it’s the MacBook Airs’ first real upgrade since its release years ago. The base model of the laptop is one of the best laptops for business, thanks to the new processor, high-resolution display with True Tone technology, all day battery life, and a decent starting price.

Why We Like It – Apple Macbook Air Rview

The MacBook Air is a premium ultrabook that has been known for its slim design and excellent battery life. The laptop is available with a 10th generation Intel Core i3 processor, which makes it more efficient. The new Macbook Air also features a much better display and the new magic keyboard with Touch ID.

  • 13.3-inch Retina display with True Tone technology
  • 11 hours of battery life
  • Magic keyboard with Touch ID
  • Front camera still not great


The new MacBook Air is available with up to a quad-core 10th generation Intel Core i7 processor, whereas the base model comes with a dual-core Intel Core i3 chipset. Apple promises up to 2 times faster performance than the previous MacBook Air. The new Intel Iris Plus graphics is also 80 percent faster than before. Apple has also included up to 2TB of SSD storage, improved speakers that offer 25 percent more volume and twice as much bass. The Mac laptop also gets an improved display, but the screen on the Dell XPS 13 is certainly much better.

Apple’s MacBook Air gets a slim body, unibody construction, and minimal look. The new Macbook Air is very much like Apple and has been updated with slimmer bezels. The butterfly keyboard on the Air is the same that’s found on the Macbook Pro, and is great for typing. The trackpad is 25 percent larger and the speaker grilles are now next to the keyboard. It lacks a touch bar like the MacBook Pro, but if you’re looking for a laptop with touch input, then maybe try the Microsoft Surface Book.


With the new keyboard, the quad-core Core i5 processor, better display, and the impressive battery life, the MacBook Air is value for money. On top of that, you also get two thunderbolt connectors, an easy to use macOS operating system, improved graphics, and more. The MacBook Air Apple laptop is great for activities such as web browsing, content creation, basic editing, media consumption, etc. The i5 model is the best in the range, and is much better than the Toshiba Chromebook 2 for productivity.

Apple Macbook Air Rview Wrap Up

The MacBook Air is a great ultrabook thanks to the 13.3-inch Retina display, the improved Magic Keyboard, and the excellent 11 hours of battery life. All of Apple’s products, such as the iPhone, Apple TV, and iMac, are of high quality. However, a better FaceTime HD camera on the new MacBook Air would’ve made the deal sweeter.
