    Better than Air

    For the past five years my 2012 11 inch Macbook Air has been a steady and consistent companion. Despite a paltry 2-3 hour battery life, it did what it needed to do and only occasionally did I notice the lack of screen real estate. Then along came the Retina Macbook- with a better screen, much better battery life, and even lighter than my air. However I was put off by the keyboard and the speed of the m3 processor, as well as the single USB-C port. The upgrades to the 2017 Macbook solved two of my issues- the i5 processor increased the speed and the second generation butterfly keyboard is not just something I can live with, I actually like it. Yes it still has the one port, but I can live with that especially since the cost of multi port adapters has decreased significantly. Bottom line: I love it and the difference from my Air is like a Porsche compared to a Volkswagen. If you have been standing on the fence I would say go for it!

    The MacBook gets better again with a faster processor and SSD. The keyboard is improved but feels the same to me. The same size means my plastic case and keyboard cover still fit. The main reason I upgraded is Apple's new AppleCare+ for the MacBook. For $249 you increase the warranty to 3 years and add 2 incidents of accidental breakage protection. Replacing the display is $529 alone. Under AppleCare+ breakage protection it's $99. With an Autistic son damage to anything is possible. The laptop is well built but not bullet proof.

    I absolutely love my new MacBook. The color is gorgeous, the picture is great, etc. I'm glad I bought it through Best Buy. It's the best deal I could find. I got $100 off for being a college student. The item was also shipped promptly!

    I purchased this MacBook to take with me when traveling or when I need it for workshops that I attend. I found it to be easier to tote around than my 15 inch MacBook. I really like both sizes though.

    I love this MacBook...but it has no USB ports.

    Don't get me wrong, I love this MacBook, it has lots of space for my music and movies...it works great on the internet (I don't use it for much else to be honest). But the only things wrong with it is there are no USB ports and no memory card slots. Other than that I love it, it is perfect!! To remedy the USB situation I bought a adapter but not sure what to do about the memory card one. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend!!!

    I love how portable and versatile this machine is. In my opinion apples only flaw, ( that I can see so far) is that the machine should have had 2 usb c ports. Currently you need to charge your MacBook then connect an external drive or CD rom or purchase a powered usb c hub, which is not sold at bby, as of yet.
