    Great MacBook that weighs very little.

    I was a bit weary before buying this MacBook. I'm used to Windows PCs, where 16GB of RAM is just not enough for me. I also tried an M2 MacBook Air with 8GB of memory before this and I felt constrained by the amount. I tried one last time and gave this a shot and I'm glad I did. Despite having just 16GB of memory, it feels more than enough now. Everything is fast. The screen is also pretty good. I would have liked if the screen was 120Hz instead of 60 but I rarely notice it, only when things are moving very fast on the screen sometimes. Otherwise, the colors are great, there are no dead pixels, and everything looks beautiful. It also weighs very little and the battery lasts pretty much the whole day, which makes it very easy to bring to university classes.

    I absolutely love this device. Equipped with the latest M3 chip and 16GB of RAM, my MacBook Air delivers impressive performance across a variety of tasks. From everyday productivity to light creative workloads, the M3 chip also ensures smooth multitasking and responsiveness. Not only that but with the 512GB SSD, it provides ample storage space for my files and applications, offering fast read and write speeds that enhance overall performance. I chose the midnight color variant as it adds a sophisticated touch, with its deep, lustrous finish that complements its ultra-thin look. The aluminum chassis feels premium and sturdy, making it ideal for anyone (like myself) who values a lightweight yet durable laptop. While it may not be a powerhouse for intensive tasks like video editing or gaming, it definitely excels in everyday productivity and multimedia consumption. If you prioritize lightweight design, long battery life, and the seamless Apple ecosystem, the MacBook Air is a solid investment and definitely would recommend!

    I recently upgraded from a 2017 MacBook Pro to this one. I'm impressed with the battery life and that it doesn't have the keyboard issues that plagued the previous model. I debated between this one and the new MacBook Pro, but I ultimately got exactly what I wanted. As a remote worker, I can handle all my daily tasks seamlessly and more quickly. My productivity has increased fourfold. I highly recommend this product.

    Love my Mac Air, learning to used some of the features is still a challenge. I’m really happy I invested in this technology for completing my research while I leaving a 39 year abusive marriage. This is the first computer I purchased for me.

    Great upgrade from the MacBook M1

    I upgraded from the M1 MacBook Air 13in unit to this one, and the most significant differences are 1) The screen seems much bigger even though it is not, 2) The battery life is much longer - thanks to the 3 micron tech in the M3. Although the M3 benchmarks 1.6x the M1 for the vast majority of everyday taks you will not notice the difference as the M1 version was pretty quick anyway. Overall I am very pleased with the upgrade.

    Your average macbook, I got it for school and doing work. Screen will burn images in if you set the brightness too high. Luckily it faded after a couple of hours. It has good speed, I like that it connects with my other apple devices and also how light weight it is. The blue color shows up in the light but otherwise will look black. Good for school not good for gaming.
