Apple MacBook Air (2019) review: the new normal

 

Can it live up to the classic?

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?

After all, for $200 more, you could get a MacBook Pro.

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.

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's 2019 MacBook Air is cheaper than before, but no game changer

 

If you're looking for the least expensive MacBook and don't need the performance of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, the 2019 MacBook Air is a competent laptop for light computing like writing, web browsing, and watching videos. Just don't expect it to be a...

Retina display now supports True Tone • Quieter keyboard • Touch ID sensor • More affordable than before

Slower SSD versus 2018 model • Marginally faster performance • Good • but not stellar battery life

The MacBook Air (2019) improves on the previous version in very minor ways. Unless you need the horsepower (then get a MacBook Pro), the MacBook Air does the job. It's not knock-your-socks off incredible like the pre-Retina MacBook Air was, but it's fine.

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...

It’s very light to carry. Really easy to use and is fast.

The only “downside” is the battery life can drain pretty quickly if you are playing video games or the like. But it’s not really an issue for me.
