    Absolutely Love it

    I’m a LONG time Windows user (20+ years). My last laptop was a Lenovo and it was a good laptop for about 4 years and then started spontaneously crashing during important school assignments. This seems to be typical of a windows machine after about 4-5 years of heavy use. I use my laptop about 4-5 hours a day almost every day because I’m a student and hey, I like to browse in my free time. So after my Lenovo began crashing here and there, I decided to buy a new laptop and I went with this version of MacBook Air. It’s been an interesting transition, as many functions are different on a Mac and I’m still learning. However, I find the interface to be very aesthetically pleasing and easy to navigate compared to a Windows. If I had never used a computer before, a Mac would be easier to learn than Windows. I like this version because it has 2 USB ports and that’s just something I’m not willing to give up right now with the newer MacBooks. The design is beautiful, the keyboard is functional and the webcam is outstanding for a built in. Many people have complained that 128 GB of storage isn’t enough but so far, I haven’t had any problems and still have 98 GB left. Most apps that I use don’t come from the App Store (Internet downloads use less storage) and I don’t store any photos on my MAC or music (I use Spotify And store photos in the cloud from my phone). For what I use this MAC for, I have plenty of space. However, I don’t like Microsoft Word for Mac. It’s not as user friendly, and many of the functions are either missing, hidden or are just downright complicated to use. If you use this app heavily like I do, that’s something to consider. I’ve also noticed that when I’m sitting on the couch or in my bed with the computer in my lap, the gap on the bottom of the Mac in front of the keyboard kind of digs into my hand while using the trackpad. I’ve been pulling my sleeve down to keep this from happening so it’s kind of annoying. I will say that the screen display is not as high definition as most new windows machines but the brightness and color accuracy of the MAC is still unmatched even with this model. I may also mention that the font on the Mac windows is pretty small and kind of irritating at times. If you change the resolution, it doesn’t look as clear so I’ve just dealt with it. And with websites you can adjust the text size so that’s helpful. File finder is taking some getting used to but it’s not THAT much different than Windows. Overall, I’m loving this laptop and I’ve been finding myself wanting to use it just to use it, which never happened when I had a Windows. Mac OS feels like luxury compared to boring ole windows. Not sure if I’ll upgrade to a newer MAC in the future bc of the butterfly keyboard and the loss of the USB ports but for now, I’m a happy camper.

    I had been wanting to buy a MacBook for a while, but always put it off. Now that I've had it for a few weeks I can say that I'm really glad that I finally bought it! I've always used PC's, but was quickly able to get accustomed to using this MacBook (I've been using iPhones and iPad's for a while, so that could be why). It's easy to use and charges really quickly. It has been working perfectly during the stay at home order with all the work I've been doing from home ( Zoom and Microsoft Teams meetings, Word and Excel documents, Google Docs, and lots of research).

    i’ve had this for almost a month now and everything seems to be running smooth! came brand new, packaging and everything in place. it did need updated to the most recent version of macOS but that was an easy fix. it hasn’t lagged for me, it doesn’t overheat, and the battery lasts fairly well for me in between charges. my only issue would be a considerably mild one; whenever i plug in my iphone using an apple power chord, it will not give me a steady charge... the macbook will basically notify me that the chord is being plugged in and out when my phone is kept in place. not sure if this is a new phone issue of mine or if it’s the laptop but nonetheless, it does everything else that i need it for. perfect for someone on the go and students who need a quality laptop to take back and forth to class. it is light for me to carry and simple to use.

    Best work computer out there...

    |
    Posted .

    I have many computers (even a newer and older Macbook Pro). But this is the one that I went back to for work every day. I often must access files and internet on the go throughout the day and found the larger laptops clumsy in the car/van to work with. The design is so light and portable. The screen resolution (not hi-res) is perfect for my aging eyes. The response/speed has always been super on these units - programs open up faster than on my home system. I need the XD card slot for pictures and file storage (best, smallest external drive there is). I hook it up to a monitor at home for legal document preparation - easily done because of the mini-display port... I had one years ago and let go of it for a larger powerhorse laptop and truly missed it. So glad to have reinvested in one - well worth the money I spent under $1,000). I have absolutely no complaints - this is a very functional, huge timesaver for me professionally.

    I love this laptop it light and easy to use, we have always had apple products and used the iMac and MacBook Pro before this purchase, I was skeptical at first because I was so used to a MacBook Pro and iMac desktop I wasn’t sure how I would like something so small. I love it! It’s very convenient not heavy to carry and buying a case to put on it made it really cute. I’ve never had any problems with it.

    Sales rep wasnt very helpful. Due to lack of knowledge. I’m assuming. My Daughter needed a computer ASAP for school work! Due to coronavirus. And her other computer crashed. So I still trusted Apple. So we went ahead and made the purchase. He told my daughter it had 128 SSD It does not . It’s Flash Storage. I truly feel this computer sold itself in the time of need. Computer runs perfectly fine. I love Apple products! Sales rep was just there to ring it up. I feel Sales reps should be taught information on the different types of storage. Speed etc!

    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!!

    I think this laptop is really good, esp. I'm not a heavy user. I only used mine for letter writing, excel and social media account. its fast and lightweight. I'm a windows user for a longer period of time so I guess the mac gesture will have some getting used to but so far I really like this.

    More used than open box

    Posted .

    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.

    WARNING: No USB 3.0 Ports

    Owned for 1 year when reviewed.

    A decent entry level laptop, but the huge drawback is that there are no USB 3.0 ports. It only has 2 USB-C type ports and one headphone jack. This means you can't extend the view of displays (only mirror). In addition, if you have content stored on a traditional hard drive, or want to get photos from your DSLR flash drive, be prepared to get an adapter which will stick out from the laptop about an inch

Would recommend!!!! Also, I love that the keyboard lights up! I can work in low light while hubby sleeps and that is a nice bonus. I wish I would have bought this bad boy a long time ago. I’m officially all Apple now!!

    I wanted an Apple laptop since all my other devices (cell phone, watch, iPad) are all apples. The price made it affordable for me to make this purchase. I needed a laptop for my course work and I love my purchase! In addition, the decorated PC covers you can purchase for apple laptops are so nice to protect your investment and for some bling!
