In our MacBook Air 2019 review, we found its crisp, high-resolution Retina display and strong audio impressive. We wish it had more than two Thunderbolt 3 ports onboard, but we still gave it an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars.
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 Apple MacBook Air's 8th Gen Intel Y-series chip and 8GB of RAM are suitable for day-to-day school or work computing. In one test, we saw no stutter as we multitasked in Chrome. 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.
If you want the latest Apple laptop, Best Buy also offers the MacBook Air 2020 for $949.99 ($50 off). It packs a 10th Gen Core i3 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.
