In sister site Laptop Mag's Apple MacBook Air 2019 review, they loved its crisp, high-resolution display and strong speakers. Although they weren't keen on its shallow keyboard, its clicky keys offer an overall decent typing experience.
Connectivity-wise, the MacBook Air features two USB-C ports, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, and USB-C 3.1 gen 2 support. There's also a 3.5mm jack for headphones or portable speakers.
In our testing, the MacBook Air handled everything we threw at it including 12 open Chrome browser tabs and a YouTube stream. Even when we added apps like Slack, Things, and Bear into the mix, the MacBook Air's performance didn't stutter.
In terms of battery life, the MacBook Air's battery lasted 8 hours and 51 minutes on Laptop Mag's battery test. That's more than a half an hour longer than the 8:19 premium laptop average.
Overall, the MacBook Air is a solid choice with strong battery life, solid performance, and a vibrant screen. We can wholeheartedly recommend it at this price.
