One of the features that most impressed both Dana and our readers was the improved 2,560 x 1,600 screen. Dana called the screen more vibrant despite the occasional glow of the glossy finish. Several readers agreed that the screen was a step forward, with Vlad "a breath of fresh air … The Retina display is bright and rich in colors, with generous viewing angles and plenty of screen space." The screen compared to the original MacBook is like night and day. Michael said it was great, even though "it keeps it in half the brightness except in direct sunlight."
It is not surprising that we praise the experience of the Air software; Most people who buy an Apple product understand what they are getting. Vlad felt that "macOS continues to shine and compares very favorably with Windows in most domains, the keys are: ease of use, compatibility with applications and hardware, and a stellar backup system." S said that macOS "has been more reliable and reliable," and its inclusion is "an underestimated benefit."
In practice, Dana felt that her practical experiences with the Air were going well. The new model is quieter than the previous iterations, and the Intel Core i5 processor and 8 GB of RAM handle everyday tasks well. The readers had mixed results. S said the air was "surprised with its speed, capacity and battery life, it has not experienced slowdowns, like some more resource-intensive programs, but Nope thought" the drive space at the bottom end is too much. small ", and cf said" when the CPU load is high, the fan sounds like a jet and the battery life is reduced to nothing. "the system".
