Design

The MacBook Air is a slim laptop that weighs just 0.9kg with dimensions of 28.05cm x 19.65cm. It has a wedge-shaped design, so it drops down to 0.16 inches, which is its thinnest point. This new device is better, faster, smoother and thinner. It weighs only 1.25 kg, making it easy to transport. The heavy aluminum alloy unibody case is lighter and the magnesium-based material is one of its strengths. The overall design of the Apple MacBook Air is greatly improved and it looks like a new model.

Keyboard and trackpad

This device’s redesigned keyboard features a third-generation Butterfly mechanism for responsiveness and great comfort.

Where the keyboard is super smooth, Touch ID is another great addition. The MacBook Air’s power key features are a built-in fingerprint scanner that allows you to unlock the laptop, especially when it’s in sleep mode. You can choose between a PIN or a password to lock it. Biometric data is stored in the T2 security chip which restricts hackers from hacking the device.

Enhanced features

  • Ports: The Apple MacBook Air has two USB-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a single USB-1 port.

  • Touch-ID: The built-in touch identification allows users to log into the laptop using their fingerprint. Makes logging into your MacBook air quick and easy.

  • Speakers: Enhanced speakers are capable of 25% louder volume.

Camera

The 720p FaceTime HD camera along with 3 microphones help make good voice and video calls. However, speaking of resolution, it does feature a 1080p webcam that is quite good compared to its competitors.

Color options

Apple offers three color variants for this laptop. These are the traditional silver, gold, and space gray. The illuminated Apple logo has been changed to Chrome, which is another changed feature.

Drums

The latest Apple MacBook air’s battery life lasts for 12 hours of local video and wireless web use, which is pretty decent.

Final verdict

Depending on the usage, we cannot predict whether it will persuade users with its features or not. But yes, those who have been using MacBook for a long time will see many improvements in many functions. From a new display, improved graphics cards, and much more, we hope it will give users the best experience. However, price will continue to be a concern when competitors roll out many of the newer features at a decent price.
