Apple’s new MacBook Air finally adds some much-needed upgrades to Apple’s lightest laptop. The 13-inch Air features a redesigned keyboard, Touch ID sensor, and faster Intel Core i5 processor, which means it’s the perfect lightweight laptop for on-the-go professionals and students alike. That said, the new MacBook Air isn’t without its faults, so read our review to find out whether Apple has gotten it right or missed the mark with this latest iteration of its ultraportable laptop lineup.

The all-new MacBook Air is an exercise in design restraint. Gone are the headphone and SD card jacks, as well as all physical buttons bar a power button. The keyboard is also minimalist, only including keystrokes for letters, numbers, and a few common symbols (bye-bye @) to allow for what Apple calls full-time touch.

Touch seems to be a recurring theme throughout the Air’s update; gone are most of the surface areas for scrolling trackpads on the Pro and mini-series, which are replaced by large screens that function like a small touchscreen. If you can’t do something on your MacBook Air with your fingers, it probably doesn’t need to be done at all!

The Air was Apple‘s first introduction to the world of laptops back in 2008. It was smaller, lighter, and more user-friendly than Apple’s traditional clunky laptop computers. Now 10 years later and under new management with Jony Ive at the helm of design, the MacBook Air is back and it’s just as good – if not better – than ever before.

The Air is an ultraportable laptop that has a 12-inch screen with a wide color gamut, a keyboard designed for higher accuracy typing, sleek aluminum construction and weighs less than 2 pounds.

The new MacBook Air’s trackpad is simply a joy to use. It’s been about seven years since Apple introduced multi-touch gestures to the Mac, and it took a few years for users to get used to using them (some still don’t). But now, Apple’s multitouch trackpad is ubiquitous. And here’s the first thing you’ll notice when you compare the 2018 MacBook Air with its predecessor from 2016: this new model is infinitely more responsive than the previous one.

For starters, I’d like to commend Apple for building such an amazing trackpad into its portable computers. After all, there are plenty of Windows 10 laptops that use much less responsive trackpads than these. But it’s not just about speed and accuracy; it’s also about overall feel.

The 2018 MacBook Air trackpad feels more natural to use than any other portable computer in existence. This one feels similar to using a solid-state drive (SSD): smooth, instant, and satisfying. And remember: Windows 10 now supports full multi-touch gestures on every laptop with a touchscreen as well as some without touchscreens.

Ports and connections

The new MacBook Air can now be configured with up to a 512GB SSD and a 1080p-resolution display. Both of these features have been long-desired upgrades from Apple’s previous generation. The new Air also doubles its base RAM at 8GB, versus the previous 4GB. But the biggest improvement of all is to Mac’s chipset,

which has been boosted with a 50% CPU speed increase and doubles the graphics performance compared to before. It’s now equipped with Turbo Boost to dynamically allocate processing power where it’s needed most to turbocharge your system performance without lag or waiting for data transfers between devices.

Battery life

This is one of the best features of Apple’s new MacBook Air. The battery life is fantastic. It’ll last an entire day without a problem and you can even get a few days on a single charge with some tweaking. There are plenty of outlets throughout the university and around my house so I never have to worry about being out and about when my laptop needs charging or dying.

Moreover, for all the benefits that this laptop offers, I find it odd that battery life doesn’t seem to be advertised as a selling point for any other laptop brand besides Apple.

My older MacBook Air would die by 1 pm after only getting four hours of use so I was able to return it for something better.
