    Apple is really good at selling shiny outdated components at a steep price.
    That or the people buying it just "think differently" enough to not realize their unquestioning loyalty.

    TBH saying that chrome can do the same thing as a MacBook is really not true chrome is truly bad and cannot do half the functions as the Mac, this is from a chrome book user

    Better back up your data constantly because if your SSD goes down, you are going to be buying an entirely new motherboard, ram and CPU...everything is soldered on to the motherboard.

    Trying to decide between this and the Macbook pro 13.5, base model, with 256Gk. zBefore the new Air, Gardian called it the "default" mac. Close in price, but seems like pro would be faster for uploading photo and short videos. Any comments?

    I seriously considered this MacBook, but the keyboard chases me away. If you're not going to get a laptop with a good keyboard, then why get a laptop? Aside from OS specific utilities, there's literally no reason not to just get a tablet, which is just a better experience for most of the things people do anyway. I'm actually having trouble figuring out where "Premium" and "passable keyboard" even intersect in the laptop space, aside from modern MacBooks.

    These days people use usb mouse for ease of use. So in this macbook we can't even use that then.. Isn't it right.. Then what's the solution?

    thanks for the largely unbiased review! in my humble opinion, no apple did not do enough of an upgrade to justify the hefty price!

    Could anyone help me - I'm having trouble deciding between the new Macbook Air and the 2018 13" Macbook Pro.

    I do a lot of work on my laptop, however, I'm not a photographer or video editor or anything like that, so wouldn't be using those 'pro' programs. I do a lot of emailing, downloading of files, file management, social media work, etc. The most demanding things I do would probably be small designs on programs like Canva, and email marketing through mailchimp. Outside or work I'd obviously use the laptop for general browsing and entertainment.

    Originally I was just thinking of getting the Pro, as I thought it'd be better to have more power than I needed than not enough, but looking at it there's quite a significant price difference (especially here in Australia), and I hate the touchbar.

    So, will the Air be fine for me, or should I just go all out and get the Pro?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Is it pretentious and meaningless to refer to a laptop as “tight”?

    It starts at $1647 in Sweden. Ridiculous for what it is.

    Apple isn't a consumer electronics company anymore. It's a mix of an enthusiastic and rich-people electronics company. They aren't making a mass market laptop. They are making the laptop that rich, non-creatives want and need. And they did a great job

    Would you consider this powerful enough to study something like design or animation? (Photoshop and After Effects)

    Price is too high, there are other laptops at lower price offering far better configuration. Apple should work on their pricing part.

    I used my MacBook Air to watch this video and I can guarantee that it is a good buy. I don't fully believe that this Mac can perform extreme tasks but it can most certainly surprise you

    The MacBook Air overall is a great computer and a solid upgrade, I just think it should've been $100-200 cheaper! $1199 is too close the the price of the MacBook Pro for a laptop that is quite different from it.

    Macbook Pros= Beast
    Macbook 12 =portability
    Macbook Air=best of both worlds?

    Nahh...far from it. The screen brightness is worse compared to Macbook 12 and Pro, not light enough (its only 120g lighter than NTMBP 13 inch) - meaning definetely not in the 12 inch Macbook camp and the processor that just slightly better than old 12 inch 2017 Macbook. The only "gap" that this new Air manages to fill in is the price range which is ridicoulous for an "Air". As a macbook user, you belong to either 2 camps: Macbook 12 camp for ultra portability & Macbook Pros camp for power users. Simple as that. Apple should stick with 12 inch and Pros model and abandon the Air.

    Enough of an update. But simply too expensive. It feels like Apple is exploiting its loyal customers.

    It is most certainly not Intel’s fault that the new MacBook is running a dual core for $1200

    I have never used a Mackbook and I wanted to change my current HP laptop since it's so slow now I'm confused and idk what to get Air OR pro... any recommendations?

  • Asher Wycoff

    Between the Y series processor and the repairability concerns with the T2 chip, it's really hard to justify a $1200 price tag. Even just bringing it down to $1099, like the old plastic MacBooks used to sell for, would have made it much more palatable.

    Base model should have 256gb SSD Harddrive. Now 256gb model is too expensive. I would have pro model instead for that proce range.

    I’ve been holding on to my unibody with an ssd put inside. They did everything right except screwup the price. That pissed me off.
