When Apple released its new MacBook Pro, this thinner and powerful product took the digital world by storm. We are talking about 13-inch MacBook Air which is one of the best tech products you can rely on without thinking. Our MacBook Air Review covers storage, battery life, performance, design, display and other features.
Detailed MacBook Air Review
The most inexpensive MacBook pro starts at a pricey $1499, but this one is available for $999. Considering an average laptop that costs around $650, its obvious most people can’t spend $1500 or more. If you desperately love MacBook and wish to buy one, the Air is the best choice.
As per our MacBook Air Review, the battery lasts for a long 14 hours which involves the Internet usage using Wi-Fi. As for other products, Apple only claims for 10 hours of battery life, which is 40 percent less.
The processor is slightly faster but almost everything else remains the same from the 2015 model. The Intel Core i5 processor got a speed bump from 1.6GHz to 1.8GHz and the upgrade is definitely worthwhile. You will experience faster graphics as Intel HD Graphics 6000 chip is used and 8GB standard RAM. Another major feature includes Turbo Boost which pushes the processor to greater speed.
The two options that you get are either 128 GB or 256 GB that can also be doubled to 512 GB for $200. Go for as much storage as you want if you wish to store music, images or videos. But if you use your MacBook for browsing and light document work, 128 GB is sufficient.
The latest MacBooks have only USB Type-C or Thunderbolt 3 ports. As the new ports offer plenty of advantages now and forever, most peripherals are using the older USB A-Type connector. With MacBook Air, you don’t have to purchase a raft of dongles, adapters, and peripherals as it effortlessly connects with USB 3.0 ports.
SD Card Slot
If you are a photo lover who used a camera and want to transfer multiple images to your laptop, MacBook Air is for you. Other MacBook products don’t make this easy at all as a card reader is required or a USB cable is attached from the camera to the laptop. On the contrary, the MacBook Air has old SD card slot allowing its users to simply plug and play.
All Macs charge with the help of USB Type-C/Thunderbolt 3 sending power, data, and video over a single connection. If you are comfortably lying on the couch in your living room and your kid trips over, the money spent on your laptop can come crashing down the floor within seconds. Apple’s old MagSafe power connector is being used by MacBook Air that automatically detaches when a high amount of pressure is put on the wire. If MagSafe tag is accidentally given, it will directly snap out and won’t harm your notebook.
Apple continuously strives hard in updating every feature of its MacBook and undoubtedly this one has a slightly updated version of the shallow, “butterfly” switch enabled keyboard. The MacBook Air keyboard is amazing and more responsive when compared to other MacBook keyboards. With MacBook Air, typing becomes very convenient.
