WSJ: "If you're looking for a new Mac, Air is the best option, I've already ordered one, if you need more power, it goes to a higher level Pro."
Engadget: "Since I started my work week, I noticed that the machine has remained quiet and reasonably cool, even when I receive long calls from Google Hangouts from a Chrome browser tab, a task that regularly sends my previous Air to a noisy and overheated tizzy. . "
CNET: "To demystify the problem as much as possible, the new MacBook Air is a bit faster than the previous model that is still available … It is also faster than the current 12-inch MacBook, which still has 2017 Intel chips, but it's slower than some comparable Windows laptops in its price clbad and the 13-inch MacBook Pro base.
Do you get better performance than before? Yes. Should I expect more CPU power from a $ 1,199 laptop that weighs 2.7 pounds and has some serious fans? Also if ".
The edge: "This new MacBook Air is faster than the old MacBook Air, but not because of the kind of margin you would expect after three years (or even one, if you bought the 2017 model.) You can do all the same. Current Air, I've been running half a dozen applications at the same time along with more than a dozen tabs in Chrome, and everything is pretty good, I think, for most people who are going to do with this laptop, it's fine. . "
Cabling: "If you are someone who builds graphics, edits 4K videos or processes large photos to live, the Air will not cut it, however, it will handle 15 to 20 browser tabs at the same time, it will allow you to edit the photos in Lightroom without No problem, and keep ten applications running at the same time.
