  • Fantastic device for students and office work!
    Reviewed by  - November 23, 2020

    A few months ago, it looked like the MacBook Air line was going to die out. Boy were we wrong - Apple has made a comeback with a speedy, slick device equipped with the new M1 chip. The battery life on this is absolutely fantastic - it's got decent speakers (camera could be better, only 720p which can be a little difficult to work with when zooming/in online meeting). There are some apps I use that aren't optimized for the ARM based chip yet, like Firefox & adobe Photoshop. So if you're looking for something that can work with programming needs, make sure your programs on the x86 intel-chip laptops works here too (though many apps like firefox can be emulated using Rosetta 2, the performance might be a little choppy - I haven't experienced this so far). It's light and has the same chassis as the 2020 MacBook Air, which is perfect for portable needs whenever we all return to our uni/work places after quarantine.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • New to Mac OS and Loving it
    Reviewed by ghostt021 - November 20, 2020

    First things first. This is my first ever mac of any type. That said I've spent the last 2 months going from one windows base laptop (6 total) Finally I decided to give Mac a try, and after a day with this I am sold. The keyboard is perfect, the screen is awesome and being that I've just recently switched the Iphone 11, the Apple ecosystem makes everything flow flawlessly. Also every 13 inch windows laptop I've had ran pretty hot. This machine barely warms up at all with no fan so no fan noise as well. There's a definitely a learning curve coming from windows 10 but well worth the change.

  • Amazing!
    Reviewed by TyGo - November 19, 2020

    I brought a MacBook Air i3 8 GB literally a few days before the M1 came out. I was disappointed by how warm my i3 got for doing the slightest bit of tasks and the fan came on and it was a noticeable sound. I didn’t want to have to worry about fan noise and my MBA heating up so I returned my i3 and bought the M1. Literally, day and night! This thing is super fast and powerful and the battery life is amazing! No more worries about fan noise or CPU temperature with multiple tabs open. I am so happy I switched to the M1 and I highly recommend it to everyone looking for their first MacBook purchase or wanting to upgrade from the Intel model or any previous model.
