Apple MacBook Air (2019) review: more affordable, just as good

 

Apple's thin and light laptop refresh improves the screen and price, and that'll work for us

Sharp, True Tone Retina display ; Excellent battery life ; Very snappy to use

Just 128GB of storage, and upgrades are expensive ; Uncertain keyboard woes ; Dual-core power may limit some

Apple MacBook Air (2019) review: The MacBook is dead, long live the Air

 

Apple quietly discontinued the 12-inch MacBook in 2019, meaning the current 13-inch MacBook Air is the smallest and, um, 'most affordable' Mac laptop.

New keyboard material (which you can't see) vastly improves typing issues of predecessor ; Price drop over 2018 model ; Large trackpad with Force Touch control ; Touch ID login via fingerprint is great ; Solid battery life

The keyboard is still rather loud when typing ; Only Thunderbolt 3 (2x USB-C) ports and no SD card slot ; No Face ID login ; Some Windows competition offer smaller bezel designs

What might look like an almost non-upgrade of its 2018 predecessor is quite a lot more: the 2019 Air has graduated and waved goodbye to its younger MacBook brother, fixed up its keyboard wrongs in the process of growing up, and becomes an altogether...

Apple MacBook Air (2018) review

 

While the new MacBook Air isn't radically different from the original – arguably the first Ultrabook – there are enough updates to keep its lofty spot in our best Macs list. In fact, it may just be the best option for anyone looking to grab a MacBook...

Small, lighter design Beautiful Retina display Good value for a MacBook

Sometimes feels underpowered Only two Thunderbolt 3 ports

Apple MacBook Air users won’t be disappointed that this update is thinner and lighter than ever before. However, it’s only slightly faster, and definitely more expensive. If you’ve not been convinced by the MacBook Air before, the cosmetic enhancements...

Apple MacBook Air review (2018): A good buy and a tough call

 

The new Air is precisely the upgrade many users have been holding out for, with a slimmed-down body, sharper Retina display, long battery life and a useful Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Though it's more than fast enough for common use cases, some might...

Lighter Slimmed-down design Sharp Retina display Long battery life Spacious and reliable trackpad It has Touch ID

Underpowered compared to a similarly priced MacBook Pro No option to upgrade the processor No more SD slot Screen is dimmer than the Pro's

APPLE MACBOOK AIR (2019) REVIEW: THE NEW NORMA

 

here's not a lot that's changed with 2019's iteration of the MacBook Air — it's a minor tweak on the major changes Apple introduced last year. It still has a beautiful Retina display — only now it's True Tone so it matches the color temperature of the...

Touch ID for login True Tone display looks great Thin, classic design

Processor can sometimes struggle USB-C ecosystem still a hassle Can you really trust this keyboard?

What made that classic MacBook Air so special is that it cut through all those caveats for so many people and did it consistently for so many years. 2019’s MacBook Air is good, but it hasn’t yet earned the title of The Default Laptop.

Crisp, high-res screen; Strong sound; No bloatware; Elegant in gold ; Underwhelming performance; Only packs USB-C ports; Shallow keyboard ; The 2019 MacBook Air is a sleek laptop with good endurance, but it could use more speed.

Overpriced luxury but impressive.

 

My wife wanted to replace her broken HP Windows 10 laptop which originally cost us half as much as this and didn't last long. We were going to spend a similar amount of money but having purchased an iMac last year we were both sold on the MacOS...
