MacBook Air 2018 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

If you have the budget, then this MacBook Air offers a proper upgrade on past iterations

A classic design, refreshed for 2018 ; Lightweight, premium-feel body ; Retina Display screen ; Pro features for a lower price

Only has two USB-C ports

The MacBook Air 2018 is a streamlined and powerful laptop brimming with up-to-date features.

Apple MacBook Air (2018) review: Return of the Mac

 

Its first major remodel for some years, the new Air brings a smaller footprint, higher-res display, Touch ID and a divisive keyboard. Is it a winner?

High-res ‘Retina’ display with smaller bezel than previous Air models ; Large trackpad with Force Touch control ; Touch ID login via fingerprint is great ; Smaller and lighter footprint adds to appeal

Loud and sometimes unresponsive keyboard ; Only Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports and no SD card slot ; Confuses the MacBook/Air/Pro lineup ; No Face ID ; Strong Windows 10 competition now

A remodel that's been long overdue, the new Air brings a shrunken footprint, higher-res display, less bezel, Touch ID login, fewer ports, a divisive keyboard and a higher price tag than its predecessor. Some great features for sure, but a few irks hold...

Apple MacBook Air 13" (2018) review

 

The lightest MacBook finally gets its long-awaited update - is it a breath of fresh Air?

Screen a significant step up from previous gen Air ; Classy design with outstanding keyboard ; Same great battery life, despite hardware upgrades

No longer as affordable as the Air once was ; Only slightly faster than before ; Loses ports in the name of thinness

Not as affordable as the Air used to be, but this latest version justifies the added expense with a stunning design, screen and features. More than enough MacBook for most people.

Apple MacBook Air review: An icon reborn

 

Apple revamps the MacBook Air for 2018 but it loses some of its appeal in the process

Retina display ; Beautiful design ; Decent battery life

Performance is disappointing ; Overpriced

With a stunning screen, great keyboard and good battery life, the Huawei Matebook X Pro really is a stunning laptop at a price that's more than competitive with the new MacBook Air. The difference is that, with a U-series mobile chip under the hood and...

MacBook Pro vs MacBook Air 2018: Which one should you buy?

 

Comparing the design, features, and specs of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air 2018

Certainly, the Air is everything you’d expect, but its most unique features have been appropriated. We would still recommend it for the average consumer, particularly as its the cheapest MacBook on the market, but if you’re willing to spend a little...

Apple MacBook Air 2018 laptop review

  (Rating Hidden)

The MacBook Air 2018 is Apple's biggest laptop update in years. A completely new design, new ports and new internal specifications make the 2018 MacBook Air almost completely unrecognisable compared with the previous model, the design of which was...

MacBook Air 2018 review

 

Apple finally updated its most popular laptop in October 2018, giving the MacBook Air an all-new, smaller and thinner design, with new colour options, and a Retina display. Find out what the new laptop has to offer, and how it matches up to other Macs...

Apple MacBook Air (2018) review: Perfectly sculpted, adequately powered

 

Not a market-leading laptop, but a seriously enjoyable experience

Beautiful Retina display; Superb keyboard; Visually stunning design

Lacklustre battery life under load; Performance doesn’t stack up to rivals in its field

This year’s MacBook Air won’t blow you away with its performance, but it will light up your eyes with its masterful design and overall user experience.
