The MacBook Air is an excellent all-around laptop for students and everyday use. It packs a 13.3-inch Retina display, Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. 

In our Apple MacBook Air 2019 review, we liked its crisp, high-resolution Retina display and strong audio. While it only has two Thunderbolt 3 ports on board, we gave it an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars. 

Weighing in at 2.8 pounds, the 13-inch MacBook Air is on par with the Dell XPS 13 (2.7 pounds) and the HP Spectre x360 (2.8 pounds). It's slightly lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Pro (3 pounds).

In terms of the laptop's performance, the MacBook Air's CPU could use a bit more oomph. It has a Y-Series Intel Core i5-8210Y CPU which is suitable for light/everyday work, but power users might prefer more horsepower. 

Connectivity-wise, the MacBook Air has two Thunderbolt 3 ports on its left side, one of which is for charging the notebook. It also has a built-in headphone jack so you can listen to music or podcasts using a wired pair of headphones. 

Need more storage? Amazon also has the 256GB model on sale for $1,099, which is $200 off and the cheapest it's ever been.
