The MacBook Air is a slim laptop that weighs just 0.9kg and measures 28.05cm x 19.65cm. It has a wedge-shaped design, so it tapers down to 0.16 inches, which is its thinnest point. This new gadget is better, faster, smoother and slimmer. It weighs only 1.25 kg, which makes it easy to transport. The heavy aluminum alloy unibody case is lighter and the magnesium-based material is one of its plus points. The overall design of the Apple MacBook Air is much improved and it looks like a new model.

The redesigned keyboard on this device features a third-generation Butterfly mechanism that offers responsiveness and great comfort.
Where the keyboard is super smooth, Touch ID is another great addition. The key power-up features of the MacBook Air are the built-in fingerprint scanner that allows you to unlock the laptop, especially when it’s in sleep mode. You can choose between a PIN or a password to lock it. Biometric data is stored in the T2 security chip which restricts hackers to hack into the device.
- Ports: The Apple MacBook Air has two USB-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a single USB-1 port.
- Touch-ID: Built-in Touch ID allows users to log in to the laptop using their fingerprint. Makes it quick and easy to sign in to your MacBook Air.
- Speakers: Upgraded speakers are 25% louder in volume.
The 720p FaceTime HD camera along with 3 microphones helps make voice calls and videos good. However, speaking of resolution, it features a 1080p webcam which is pretty good compared to its competitors.
Apple offers three color variants for this laptop. These are traditional silver, gold, and space gray. The illuminated Apple logo has been changed to the Chrome one, which is another modified feature.
Battery life on Apple’s latest MacBook Air lasts for 12 hours of local video and wireless Internet use, which is pretty decent.
Depending on usage, we cannot predict whether it will persuade users with its features or not. But yes, those who have been using MacBook for a long time will see many improvements in many functions. From a new screen, improved graphics cards and much more, we hope it will give users the best experience. However, price will continue to be a concern as competitors introduce many of the latest features at a decent price.
