At 2.8 pounds, the 13.3-inch Apple MacBook Air is on par with its rivals, like the Dell XPS 13 (2.7 pounds) and the HP Spectre x360 (2.8 pounds). It's just a bit lighter than its sibling, the 13-inch MacBook Pro (3 pounds).

The Air was able to juggle 12 browser tabs, a 1080p video on YouTube, Giphy, Google Forms, Google Docs, Slack, Things and Bear text editor without so much as a stutter.
As for connectivity options, the MacBook Air packs two Thunderbolt 3 ports on its left side, one of which you'll use to charge the notebook. Also on board is a built-in headphone jack to listen to music or podcasts using a wired pair of headphones or speakers.
