You heard this first, folks: Apple's new MacBook Air, which was just released in mid-July 2019, is not that good.

Apple's great thing with the Air model from 2019 is that it's a super-low $ 1,099 . Impressively low for any MacBook, but is it worth spending the extra $ 150?
November 2018 The MacBook upgrade was a much-needed update and saw much more memorable. It brought us the amazing new design without a design, a new Retina display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and four million pixels, a Force Touch trackpad and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. And possibly a point of sale for all sustainability sticklers: It's the first Apple laptop made from recycled aluminum.
New upgrades in 2019 result in no changes outside of the laptop. None, nada, zilch. The Retina screen is lighter and more comparable to a MacBook Pro, which was a complaint on the November 2018 model. MacBook Airs still do not have Touch Bar, but Touch ID is integrated in the top row of keys.
It is quite surprising that there is no difference in the specifications between the two models (although it may not be surprising because they were only born eight months apart). Both have fast dual-core 8-generation Intel Core i5 processors with Turbo Boost up to 3.6 GHz and Intel UHD Graphics 617. Somehow Mashables Ray Wong found that the 2019 model worked up to 15% faster than the older one but SSD is apparently slower than the previous model to reduce costs.
You can decide if the meh upgrades are worth $ 1,099. Usually $ 1,199, you can save $ 249.01 and garden 2018 MacBook Air in silver, gold or space gray for $ 949.99.
