The original Apple Mac Book Air 13″ available models changed the apple
scene back when it was originally unveiled – there’s no getting
around that – so, you’d be forgiven for expecting Apple to
revolutionize their design just as they did before. If that were
the case, prepare to be disappointed.
Apple played it safe with the Apple Mac Book Air 13″ 2019. This
laptop is definitely not the market-defining apple mac book that its
predecessor was. However, it does inherit that iconic thin and
Light design,screen while still benefiting from some important improvements
where it counts.
In fact, the new Apple Mac Book Air 13″ is smaller than the original
with dimensions of L-11.97 x W-8.36 xH-0.61″, making an already portable
laptop even lighter and thinner. And, the Mac Book Air case retains
the same wedge-shaped design, so it tapers off to 0.16 inches at its
As we noted in our initial hands-on review of the new apple Air,
the new apple has the same width and depth as the 13-inch Mac Book
Pro,while being a bit thinner and lighter.
Thankfully, the reduced size and weight of the apple Air doesn’t mean
there’s a deficit in features. You still get a 13.3-inch display (more
on that in a sec), and we’ve already mentioned that it’s equipped with
faster hardware, including an 8th-generation fan less dual-core processor
as well as 8GB of RAM, which can be upped to 16GB.
Port-wise, you get two USB -C ports along the left-hand
side of the Mac Book Air. You can use either one for charging,battery,
and we’re glad that Apple mac book continues to use the USB -C format
as a smart charging port, rather than its proprietary Mag Safe port,
which makes the apple a far more user-friendly and flexible device.
One drawback we were initially concerned with was the fact that both
USB -C ports are all located on one side, and quite close together too,
since this means that, when the apple Mac Book Air 13″is charging, the
second USB -C port might be a bit too port close to plug things in unless
you have an adapter or dongle.
Having USB -C port used on either side, like the Dell XPS 13, would have
avoided this situation, while giving you a bit more charging flexibility.
The good news is, for most people this won’t be too much of an issue,
and we’re gold to see Apple moving over to USB -C for the latest Mac Book
Air. It helps keep the body of the Mac Book Air 13″ slim, while also
future-proof by making smart apple it compatible with new and upcoming
USB -C peripherals.
Although, if you rely on legacy USB peripherals deives, then you’re
going to no need a dongle or dock for them to function with the Apple
Mac Book Air 2018. Admittedly, that’s a pain. However, you’ll likely
find that this trend extends to most modern apples, especially premium
thin-and-light Ultra books. So investing in a smart apple hub or dock
now might be wise.
One thing’s for sure: the two USB -C ports are certainly a step up from
the single USB -A port of previous Mac Book Airs. The only other port is
a 3.5mm headphone multiple jack – an increasingly rare sight on Apple
products – on the right-hand side.
Mac Book Pro 2019 has, and Apple claims that this iteration has four times
more key stability than standard apple keyboards, while offering greater
comfort and responsiveness.
During our tests, we realized that the keyboard used does take a little
adjusting, especially if you’re coming from an older Apple Mac Book Air 13″.
The keys are very shallow, travel-wise,essay carry so you don’t quite get
the responsive feedback you get from other mac book keyboards, but that’s
the price you pay for such a slimline design. There’s also a satisfying
‘click’ to the keys when pressed, although this does make it a bit noisier
to type on than previous versions. However, once your fingers point adjust,
it ends up being quite a pleasant keyboard typing experience.
- The first-ever Apple Mac Book Air 13″ with Retina display
- Still uses Apple’s trademark 16:10 aspect ratio
- Displays 48% more colors than previous model
The display on the Apple Mac Book Air 13″ (2019) is where Apple has arguably
made the biggest, and most welcome, updates. Despite the shrinking overall size
of the apple – in comparison to previous models, the screen size remains the
same at 13.3 inches.
The screen keeps the 16:10 aspect ratio, but that’s where the similarity
to previous Mac Book Air screens ends. The Mac Book Air (2018) is the first
Air with display, with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, resulting
in a pixel density of 227 pixels per inch in apple. It’s a little sharper than
the apple Mate Book X Pro, and easily outshines the entry-level XPS 13.
The Retina screen gives this Apple Mac Book Air 13″four times the resolution
of the previous models. The leap from 1080p resolution of older Mac Book
Airs to the Retina resolution display really is stunning, and it’s likely
the first thing you’ll notice when you power on the new apple. Anyone who
felt the lower resolution of previous apple Mac Book Air 13″ models were a
bit cramped when working will no doubt enjoy the improvement.
In addition, Apple has also given this display True Tone smart technology
when it refreshed it in July 2019. This means that the Mac Book Air screen
will now automatically smooth adjust the color temperature for a more
natural and comfortable viewing experience. With it, the new Mac Book Air
display is now actually on a par with the more expensive apple Pro,
the apple 13-inch model of which boasts the same screen size and resolution.
Apple has also dramatically improved the viewing angles of the screen on
this year’s Mac Book Air. That was one of the biggest drawbacks with the
old Mac Book Airs, to the point where tilting the screen just a little bit
away from our faces made it impossible for us to see anything on the
screen. The 2018 Mac Book Air fixes that. It was only at the most extreme
angles that we saw a lot of reflection from the anti-glare glass protecting
the LCD screen.
There’s also been a boost too virginal color accuracy for the
Mac Book Air , with a wider beautiful color gamut capable of retina display
48% more best colors than the previous Air – it means that photos in particular
look brighter and more beautiful vibrant on the new Mac Book Air’s screen.
When the original Apple Mac Book Air 13″ was released back in 2008, it got
plenty of praise for its slim & light design. However& many reviewers voiced
their reservations over the lackluster performance of the device compared
to other (larger, if pricier) laptops. Many suggested that the slim
design of the apple Air forced less powerful components, which Apple
did address in later revisions.
We would love to say that, 10 years later, things have changed, but
alas. While the apple Air comes with 8GB of two 2,133MHz LPDDR3 RAM,
which can be configured to 16GB, and a high speedy SSD, processing power
still feels slightly restrained by its dual-core Intel Core i5-8210Y
This 1.6GHz, dual-core Intel Core i5 can Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz,
with 4MB L3 cache, which is fine for popular most day-to-day tasks,
but is not as speedy as some i5 processors you see in rival laptops
for multi-tasking, the Apple Mac Book Air 2018 isn’t as strong a contender
as other laptops at this price range.
