Apple MacBook Air review (2018): A good buy and a tough call

5 monthes ago   |   By Engadget

I'm going to let you in on a secret: In the lead-up to Apple's big Mac-and-iPad event last month, Team Engadget had a pre-written story ready to go in the event that Apple finally killed off the Air line. Needless to say, that article never saw the l...

I dropped $1,500 on Apple's new MacBook Air - these are the 13 things I love and hate about it

I dropped $1,500 on Apple's new MacBook Air - these are the 13 things I love and hate about it

Last week, I spent the most money I've ever spent on myself: just shy of $1,500 for a swanky new MacBook Air .
Two days ago, that very expensive device arrived at my apartment, and I've been excitedly using it ever since. As a decades-long MacBook loyalist, I have a lot to say - both positive and negative - about Apple's latest flagship laptop.

7 reasons you should buy the new MacBook Air

Apple has an all-new MacBook Air in 2018.
Though it's received plenty of internal upgrades over the years, Apple actually hadn't touched the MacBook Air design since 2010. President Obama was two years into his first term, Russia had not yet annexed Crimea, and Tim Cook was still a year away from becoming Apple's new CEO.
Eight years later, the world is a very different place, but the MacBook Air has persisted. At its October event, Tim Cook called the MacBook Pro "the most beloved Mac ever," and announced its first real hardware upgrade in years.
If you haven't heard anything about the...
