    Observable decent computer however the charging of an iPhone with the USB on the Mac Book Air is challenging with constant error message. Also, Best Buy is much higher in price than other retailers for thus product and their price match offer comes with so many conditions.

    A Good Laptop for a College Student

    We purchased this for my nephew's graduation and use in his college career. The Air was selected because it is hasn't been turned into a disposable appliance by Apple yet. The SSD module can be replaced with a larger one via 3rd party products if we so choose and it has the very useful magsafe power connector rather than using USB-C. Apple has done a disservice to customers by removing the connectivity on newer products. This isn't a fast laptop by any means, but it will be fine for a student doing the bulk of his work using Google's gSuite. We set him up with a 4 port usb hub and external 1tb drive for TimeMachine for backups. The Air has 2 usb ports, so one can be used for the Hub and things that can be left behind (like a trackball). I don't like Microsoft Windows of any flavor, and my nephew doesn't like how often his Windows laptop crashed due to software updates and errors, so the MacBook Air, will be far more reliable in the long term than a cheaper Windows machine. In reality, his University could have gotten away with a Chromebook; but this way, there is at least the ability to use local apps without being dependent on a network connection.
