    Good bang for your buck

    Mac laptops last a lot longer than they get credit for. My last laptop was an early 2011 MacBook Pro, and obviously it can’t handle EVERYTHING, but even recently I was using for photo editing and very small video editing projects (up to 1080p). I decided to upgrade to this MacBook Air M2 because the multicore processor and GPU would allow me to higher quality editing if I had to do so away from home. Not to mention being able to upgrade my photoshop and video editing apps now that I have a current OS. What I like: it’s lightweight, it looks cool (I got the midnight color, so it looks like Batman’s laptop), it’s very fast to boot and open apps, the screen is very bright (I keep at about 60% most of the time), the speakers are decent (as far as laptop speakers go, and I don’t have them all the way up either), the screen is fantastic when it comes to image quality. I also like that it’s cooled via heatsinks and not fans, which means less overheating and is safer to have on your lap or in a bed (no blankets blocking the exhaust causing harm to the computer). The battery lasts so much longer than any laptop I’ve ever had. People online (especially YouTube) will say it’s not meant for creatives and you should spend more blah blah blah… and to a degree they’re right. But I’ve edited and color graded 4k RAW video (high quality with large file sizes) and it was painless and had fast exports. The only time I experienced slow down was when I applied a taxing effect like denoiser to my footage. Would I buy this to be my main video editor? Yes and no. Depends on your workload. 4k or 1080p editing for videos under 10mins yes. 6k or 8k definitely not. Photos: absolutely (though brilliant as the screen is, it appears slightly more dark and saturated than photos appear elsewhere). Some tips: don’t spend more on upgrading the SSD from apple, you can buy a fast Crucial brand 2TB usb c external drive for under $100. This is fine for storage and even editing directly from the external drive which will keep the laptop clean and running fast. And get a USB C hub so you can plug in more external items as needed (USB A, card reader, mouse, external display, etc), these vary in price but can be bought for $20. I also recommend a padded laptop sleeve bag to keep the computer from dings and scratches. Honestly my biggest issue is the fact that I need a bigger monitor to edit photos and videos on (not the laptops fault). But I do wish these defaulted to 16gb RAM and 512GB of storage. Even with the integrated RAM (which allows the SSD/CPU to basically buffer the ram to help it out), 8GB is a little underwhelming for 2023. I mostly use this as my back up (I do most editing on a desktop Mac with a large monitor): emails, streaming video, web stuff, office stuff etc.; but don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be your work horse on the road. It runs the newest adobe photoshop and video editors just fine. And as I said, the 13” screen can be a little cramped for a video editing workspace but it’s usable in a pinch.

    "A gift of elegance and power" says my sister

    Gifting my sister the MacBook Air M2 from Best Buy was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Her joy and enthusiasm were palpable from the moment she unboxed her new machine. A month in, and she's still raving about it as if she's just opened it up. She was blown away by the sheer speed and performance of the M2 chip. My sister, a creative professional, often juggles multiple resource-intensive applications for her design work. With the M2, her work has become much more efficient. No more waiting for apps to load or stuttering during design work – her MacBook handles everything like a dream. She was thrilled by the prolonged battery life. As someone who often works on the go, she found it liberating not to be constantly on the hunt for an outlet. Now she takes her MacBook Air M2 to cafes, meetings, and even parks, knowing that the battery will comfortably last the whole day. She's particularly fond of the Retina Display. She says her designs have never looked better, and even casual web browsing is a more vibrant experience. The audio system has also impressed her with its rich and immersive sound, turning her downtime into a mini home theatre experience. The Magic Keyboard is another feature she keeps mentioning. She finds it comfortable and easy to type on for extended periods, and it seems to have increased her productivity. My sister also loves the aesthetic and feel of the MacBook Air M2. Its sleek, minimalist design, lightweight, and the use of recycled aluminum in its construction align perfectly with her lifestyle and environmental beliefs. She is still discovering new things she can do with macOS Monterey. Its innovative features like Universal Control and Focus Mode have opened up new possibilities for her and made her work process even more seamless. As the giver of this gift, seeing her genuine excitement and satisfaction with the MacBook Air M2 has been worth every penny. It has not only streamlined her work but also added an element of joy to her everyday computing. If you're considering a similar gift, I wholeheartedly recommend the MacBook Air M2 from Best Buy. It's a gift that keeps on giving.
