    Verified BuyerReviewed by MistyE75 - August 17, 2021

    ** pictures are with a Armor case I purchased separately ** Good fast enjoy the color For size it is heavier then a windows computer of same size But 100x faster. Touch ID and Apple Watch can be used to unlock MacBook Air I did purchase separately a protection armor case from Amazon that has 4 year warranty so pictures will show the case on it. I also purchased separately the logo Bluetooth mouse, I prefer mouse of digital mouse pad on MacBook Air. But the MacBook Air mousepad on laptop has a lot of gestures to make surfing features better if use to it. I purchased the Rose Gold The Apple emblem when on does not light up like my brothers MacBook Air last model before this one.

  • The best gateway entrance to the Mac
    Verified BuyerReviewed by AwesomeSauce03 - March 19, 2021

    I have always wanted a MacBook, ever since I was a little kid. But, there was always something that stopped me from getting one. They always mentioned that the Air wasn't very good, from 2011 all the way up to 2019, reviews always mentioned the multiple flaws MacBook Air had; from the thermal throttling, to the super small SSD (128 at base price), over $1000, then the Butterfly Keyboard etc. The list went on and on, and I really thought that it wasn't worth the money. Until, WWDC 2020, Apple announced they would start making their own chips straight from home, I was so excited for this new generation, it reminded me of the time when they went from PowerPC to Intel. The excitement was there, and I loved the new unibody that started in 2016, with the removal of unnecessary ports for the average Joe. Everything was the same, but the new M1 chip. That is when I realized that this M1 MacBook Air was the one for me. I didn't hesitate and started saving until I had enough to buy it. And, I absolutely made the best decision in purchasing it. It is amazing, it's super slim. portable, super fast processing speed and power. The screen is beautiful, the bezels are unnoticeable. The keyboard is outstanding, To be completely honest, this laptop makes you want to be more productive, just because of its speed and its ease of use. If you're thinking about purchasing a Mac, this by far is one of the better choices (and the cheapest nonetheless) The charger is also outstanding! 30w is all you need for this little thing Recommendation: I would just like to say that you should consider upgrading the SSD size, at least to 512GB, 256GB is fine, but you won't feel the need to download and have only the essentials, 512GB is such a sweet spot and won't have to worry about deleting things in the future. RAM upgrade I wouldn't recommend, unless you are a serious power hungry user.

  • Well worth the money spent!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by WendyH - May 26, 2021

    This is my first MacBook and I absolutely love it! I have officially gone over to the Apple side. It is so easy to use and a beautiful design. The battery life last longer than any other laptop I have owned in the past. The screen is vivid and easy on the eyes. It talks to the other devices that I already own which is super cool. The keyboard is a dream to type on and I am enjoying having lighted keys. I thought I would need to buy a separate mouse but the trackpad is so user friendly. No need to spend the extra money. My favorite thing about this laptop is how light and portable it is. It will be perfect for when I go back to college in the near future. I plan to use this laptop for many years to come.
