Apple MacBook Air (2019) review

Lately, Apple MacBook Air has caught people’s attention. Compared to the first Ultrabook, there are many new updates and features that users will see. Without a doubt, this sleek 13.1mm device is one of the best entry-level laptops Apple has ever created.

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 tapers 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 main features of the MacBook Air are a built-in fingerprint scanner that allows you to unlock the laptop, especially when it is in sleep mode. You can choose between a PIN code or a password to lock it. Biometric data is stored on the T2 security chip that prevents hackers from hacking into 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 ID allows users to log into the laptop using their fingerprint. This makes connecting to the MacBook Air quick and easy.
Speakers: Enhanced speakers are capable of 25% louder volume.
Camera
The 720p FaceTime HD camera with 3 microphones provides quality voice calls and videos. However, speaking of resolution, it has a 1080p webcam that is quite good compared to its competition.

Color options

Apple offers three color variations for this laptop. These are the traditional silver, gold, and space gray. The illuminated Apple logo has changed to that of 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

Based on usage, we cannot predict whether it will convince 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. New display, improved graphics cards and much more, we hope this will give users the best experience. However, price will continue to be a concern when competitors introduce many of the newer features at a decent price.
