    This powerful MacBook air has everything you need for school, Very light, great look, The 2 USB slots, and Micro SD has everything you need to move data, connect and for students I highly recommended. The good: No need to buy dangles for you to connect USB, Micro SD slots or Thunderbolt spot, The camera has better resolution display than current MacBook air 2018 (720p) The bad: No touch ID, no Retina Display, Smaller trackpad Overall: Works great! Very light! Does the job!

    Having a MacBook Pro, needed something a little more compact. The MacAir is great in size and weight, everything I need to be able to work on my presentations more effective instead of on my phone on the go works great. Computer runs great, smooth and fast. I would recommended this for someone who wants a light laptop to carry around but also needs more then a basic laptop. Great product over all very happy with it. I picked the lowest model hard drive since on the go most of my things are in my google drive. At home purchased a 4TB hard drive to store or all files. Comes out cheaper as well.

    I bought this to replace my 6 year old Macbook Pro. It is light weight. It runs smooth. I miss the CD ROM, but air drop has worked thus far. Our best buy Salesman was wonderful and informative. The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star is I severely dislike the new charge mechanism. The previous models the magnetic was strong and slim so no matter which way I turned my computer it stayed in tact and was close to the unit. This one sticks out oddly and comes off easily. I will adjust but I prefer the previous model charging cord system.

    My husbAnd and i purchased the Mac after a long time of research and educating ourselves. I have an instagram page that also connects to my YouTube and personal blog. I needed a computer that connected to my IPhone which of course the Mac does. I can answer texts or phone calls through my laptop while I’m working. It’s amazing. I also can edit my YouTube videos on my Mac or phone and again they sync together. It’s a great investment and a beautiful piece of technology.

    I own an iPad and tried to use that for work related stuff - too hard unless you buy a separate keyboard. I had looked at the MacBook Air a couple of times when purchasing the iPad but eventually succumbed. The guys at Best Buy helped to load MS Office for Mac instore and so far after 3 weeks all is good. The machine boots up and shuts down quickly and I've had no issues with either the office suite or Outlook. This machine is still the design benchmark for laptops I think, it's sleek and well made. The 12 hour battery life is awesome - all day working without having to plug in the charger. A good buy.

    Love my MacBook Air! We purchased an iMac a few months ago and I loved it. But then I missed having the mobility of a laptop and found myself using my iPhone while in bed or on the couch. So my husband surprised me with the MacBook for Mother's Day and I'm very pleased. There's still a lot to learn and I know I'm not using everything I can on it but I do enjoy using Safari and being able to watch movies on it when I'm out of town.

    An Apple Is A Fruit And Not A Computer

    Purchased the Apple for my wife at the recommendation of our daughter who uses Apple in her job as a graphic artist designer. For someone like who uses accounting/bookkeeping programs, Apple does not suit the needs. Every time my wife has a question, I can not help as I have no idea how the Apple operating system works. One of the big draw backs for me if (and I use the word if) Apple ever had a touch screen and came down in price, I might (yes might) purchase one for myself. I would recommend this product to an artistic person and not for business use.

    Not worth paying $1000

    I regret paying around 1k for a laptop that isn't touchscreen or has the same specs as the Microsoft surface laptops. Don't get me wrong the laptop works fast and the battery life is good but I can only see myself paying $400 for a laptop that isn't as advanced as others on the market. One thing that I love about the macbook is that I can sync my iphone to it and listen to apple music, facetime, and text. Honestly, it's the look and Apple name that draws people in.

    I should have switched from a pc to a Mac years ago!! Why did I wait so long? Wonderful price, friendly and knowledgeable staff- my buying experience was just the icing on the cake! Many reasons why I chose this Mac book air. The size/ weight is small and light. The 13.3 screen size is just right. The 8GB memory/ 128GB flash storage gives me plenty of space for documents, pictures and music. Highly recommended!!

    As a student I've had a couple laptops from different brands & they would give me problems pretty soon after buying them. This is my first MacBook & I absolutely love it! It's the perfect size & weight so I can carry it in my backpack or my bag wherever I go. I've been using it for almost a year now, the battery life is great & it looks cute with the case that I also bought at Best Buy. Definitely recommend it!

    Expensive but not well built

    Third Apple computer I have had, the first two were bullet proof. This one though is not your typical Apple. The creaking of the frame kind of like an old door opening when holding it in my lap or just typing on it. And the apps and programs just do not run well, including Safari. Have had to re-boot more than the other two put together over a nine year period and I've only had this one a little over a year. Would not recommend or buy again.

    I was able to secure by far the best price on the Macbook Air available. I even forgot to apply a Student discount and was able to call back after the fact and have it applied. In today's shopping world, there are certain situations where it still makes sense to buy from a brick-and-mortar reseller. The 2 remaining on my list are Bed, Bath, and Beyond for home goods & Best Buy for Consumer Electronics. Better deals than Apple, Samsung, LG, you name it. Don't know how I feel about the new logo, but good work again Best Buy!

    I did not think I would ever be able to afford a MacBook! But then Best Buy had a sale, then the student discount, and I was able to trade my old laptop in for a 55. gift card. I thought I got an excellent deal. I bought the MacBook Air at the store, went home for lunch and decided to take it out of my online 'cart'. That was when I discovered it had been reduced another 75.00! I took my receipt back with a pic on my phone of the new discount and they credited me back the 75.00! I LOVE IT!!!

    This is not the highest end apple computer by any means, but does everything I need it to do. People go nuts that this one doesn’t have crazy good optical resolution or whatever, I guess I’m just not a snob for the retina display. This laptop replaces my larger and more powerful macbook pro from when I was in design school, and yes, I notice the difference in display quality, but I’m not using this one for design. Better display isn’t worth extra hundreds or thousands if you’re not rendering an image.

    This is the first Apple computer I have used and owned. I have had many apple products over the years and never could justify paying for a laptop of their price. I previously owned a Toshiba laptop and had that for 10+ years. No complaints, just a simple laptop. I have used my Mac everyday for the past two weeks and I absolutely love it. It has surpassed my expectations and I highly recommend it. Great design, slim, light weight, sleek aluminum body. Recommend buying extras to go with product : body cover, screen cover, sd card expansion, carrying case.

    Apple products have had a great reputation first being top notch. This extends to their laptops as well. Particularly, the macbook air. This laptop is the best for the price in terms of functionality and operating. It offers great storage space, optimum operating system, and can sync apple products. As an iphone owner and a windows laptop owner, I have enjoyed how effortless it has been for me to have my iphone sync up with my new macbook air laptop. If you are not on too tight of a budget, I would recommend this product

    I’ve never owned a Mac but everything else I have is Apple (phone, watch). So glad I got this! I tried a new windows and it just wasn’t fast enough for me. I’m currently doing online classes so lots of research and papers and I needed something that was quick to load. This is perfect! So fast to start up and easy to use. Just had to google a few things to get used to the shortcuts but super easy to use once you figure it out. Also being a student, Apple offers $150 off laptops so Best Buy price matched that which was great.

    No Windows ever again

    I have had my fill of laptops that did not work right and decided to switch entirely t Apple products, having an iPhone and iPad. I had wrestled with my old pc for as long as I could stand and finally broke down and got what I wanted in the first place. It was on sale and it was time to buy. Ordering on line was a breeze and pickup was even easier. Set up was a snap. This thing is so much faster and the back lit keyboard is an added bonus. I will never buy anything that has Windows on it again.

    This laptop is superb -- an amazing quality computer. I really love the simplicity of the design and how lightweight it is. Super portable too; perfect for anyone who needs to take their laptop on the go. I'm a loyal Android mobile user but I just love Apple computers! Hard to beat this MacBook Air. Simple, aesthetic, and lightweight. Not to mention that Mac OS is really attractive and easy to use. My grandma can even get around on a Mac because it's straightforward and uncomplicated. I'm really pleased with this computer. 5 stars! :)

    More used than open box

    So, I was expecting a open box new unit but it seemed more used than just open box. Only the outside case showed any scuffs. Once opened it all looked excellent. No scratches on screen or any wear on keyboard or touchpad. Unit boots up instantly and battery life is good. Overall still very happy. My expectations may have been too high.
