One of the features that impressed most Dana and our readers was the enhanced 2,560 x 1,600 screen. Dana called the screen more lively despite the occasional glare of the glossy finish. Various e-readers agreed that the screen was a step up, with Vlad deeming it "a breath of fresh air … the Retina screen is bright and rich in color, with generous views and lots of screen real estate."

Software  It is no surprise that reviewers broke Air's software experience with praise, most of them who buy an Apple product under stand what they get there. Vlad felt that "macOS continues to shine and compare very favorably with Windows on most domains. The key is: ease of use, compatibility with programs and hardware, and a strong backup system. "S stated that macOS" has been more reliable and reliable "and its inclusion is" an underrated benefit. "
In practice Dana felt her practical experience of the air going well. The new model is quieter than previous iterations, and the Intel Core i5 processor and 8 GB RAM handled daily tasks well, readers had mixed results, so said the air "surprised me with speed , ability and battery life. Have not experienced declines, even using some resource intensive programs. The processor has been fine. "But Nope thought that" the low end driveway is crazy little "and cf says" when the CPU load is high, the fan sounds like a jet and the battery life goes to nothing. Not a good idea to run things like tax system. "
Given how the air fits into the updated Apple laptop lineup, Dana spent a good time investigating the options. some of the readers: the Ori discovered improvements over the MacBook Pro, but their experience was "far from what Apple claims, especially when you need to lower the brightness." Cf, which upgraded from a 2011 17-inch MacBook Pro to the new air, let note that the battery "lasts eight to twelve hours against two hours at 17." cf also mentioned that they "use it far more than my 17 since it is so portable." Dario considered the new air "a major update over the old version . While it's not as powerful as Pro, it's perfect for the target audience, basically web browsing, easy photo editing, a few easy games, multiple programs running in parallel. "
While there was not much negative feedback from readers Matthew mentioned" it's really a bit to tell and sad that Apple's new MO is skimping on specific parts across the product lines to expand the bottom line. "Nope added that they" really dislike lower battery life, the higher the price and the limited driving space in 2019. "But the first time the Mac owner forestdonkey said they like it a lot, though they certainly didn't use it for something too strenuous. "cf they are" very happy with my purchase – – I've already bought a second for my wife and she loves it! "
