  • WORTH. Huge upgrade from any MacBook before.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous reviewer - January 30, 2021

    Coming from a 2013 MacBook Air 13 spec'd out with the 512GB flash storage, i7 CPU, and 8GB of RAM, this is still a huge upgrade! My old MacBook Air would throttle from opening up Any Adobe software, iMovie, Garageband, etc. It would also take over half an hour just for some 2-4 minute clips I want to render. I ended up watching paint dry :( With the new M1 MacBook Air, it is super quiet (literally because no fans), doesn't overheat, and doesn't feel "glitchy" when it is on full load. Getting the BASE model is enough for the majority of consumers, especially students. Battery life is ridiculously good. I was impressed by not having to charge it for 2 weeks with casual usage. This blows my mind. Those of you who are worried about the Intel --> M1 arm transition shouldn't be because I was able to use all of the programs I had on my previous MacBook Air. Not trying to sound like an Apple fanboy, but as I am typing this on the M1 MacBook Air, I wanted to say big kudos to Apple for implementing the M1 successfully. Overall, would definitely recommend this to ANY student, writer, artist, or someone who wants to get into the Apple atmosphere. This is the best option for the best performance to price ratio with a screen and insane battery life. One more thing, if you stationed at home all the time, I highly recommend getting the M1 Mac Mini.

  • My first MacBook Air
    Verified BuyerReviewed by DaveyWavey - September 14, 2021

    I was heading back to school so I needed to upgrade my laptop. I ended up picking out a Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2. It was nice to look at, but very finicky and the learning curve wasn’t something I liked. My dream laptop was always a MacBook. So I decided to splurge and get what I really wanted. So Best Buy let me trade in the Chromebook for a MacBook Air. First off, it’s beautiful. Also, it’s so simple to use. And the battery lasts so long! The display is super sharp. This thing is powerful considering how thin it is. It can handle everything i throw at it, and more. Definitely worth the price. I ended up purchasing a leather cover to protect it. And I just loved it even more.

  • My first MacBook purchase
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Smoochie - January 9, 2022

    No wear and tear detected to me, it turned on right away. It’s my first MacBook purchase and it’s mainly for college. It was easy to set up my Apple ID from my I-touch and I-phone. It came with power cord and adapter. It was a Christmas gift to myself but I didn’t turn it on until January 9th in time for my classes on the 10th. I like it so far, I got it by curbside pickup by the way. It’s nice, light to carry and pick up no complaints here.

  • Love MacBooks
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Olive - November 12, 2021

    I previously owned a MacBook Pro and I was in need of another laptop, so I chose this one. It's very fast in speed and has mostly the same features like the MacBook Pro. I also own a Apple iMac desktop. I am a fan of Apple's products
