Pros and cons

According to our laptop expert
  • This MacBook is thin with a thickness of 1.7cm and light with a weight of 1.35kg, making it easy to carry with you.
  • Suitable for browsing the internet for up to 12 hours without recharging.
  • Thanks to the de PCie SSD, you can start your MacBook within 15 seconds and the loading times are much shorter than with 'traditional' SSDs.
  • The HD screen isn't as sharp as comparable MacBooks with a resolution of 1440 x 900.
  • The Multi-Touch trackpad isn't pressure sensitive; forwarding faster by pressing harder doesn't work for instance.

    • keyboard
    • multiple connection options
    • much lighter than old macbook pro
    • Processor
    • only wireless internet

    I don't get along well with the keyboards of the latest apple laptops. Fortunately, it still has the older keys, which I find very pleasant. For the rest, this is a great laptop for basic office work. Would have preferred the i7 processer, but it was out of stock. However, the i5 also does well.
    No experience yet with reliability and battery life in the longer term.

    Can not live without
    • Battery lasts a long time
    • Was able to easily transfer my old macbook including software
    • Nice screen
    • Processor nice and fast
    • Sync with all other apple devices
    • Apple just remains relatively expensive

    My old macbook was really written off after seven years. Nice that everything was easy to transfer, including the software. I could continue working like this, but faster and with more storage.

    A party to use and work with!
    • Speed
    • Easy start up for first use
    • Nice design, lightweight

    Working with the MacBookAir is very user-friendly from the first minute, fast, easy ....... in short, a joy to work with. All you have to do is enter your Apple ID and "everything" will appear on your MacBookAir. Super fast! Highly recommend.

    Perfect for everyday use.
    • Beautiful design
    • Fast
    • Handy operating system
    • Difficult if you get rid of Windows

    I like it because I like it when a laptop is fast and has many possibilities to do certain things.
