Features of MacBook Air 2018
As you know, MacBook Air is a business laptop. However, unlike its previous generations, this MacBook Air 13-inch 2018 is thinner, better faster and smoother and considered as the best laptop for programming.
The weight of this laptop is only 1.25kg even though the body is made from aluminum-heavy alloy instead of magnesium-based material which is lighter. It is true that this MacBook is so thin and light, but the slim design comes with a price.
The port lineup on this MacBook only consists of two USB-C ports which support the Thunderbolt 3 standard. For those who do not know, by using the Thunderbolt, you will get a benefit from video passthrough data which rates up to 40Gbps and the ability to daisy-chain.
Not only that but most of the time when you use the laptop, the USB-C ports will be taken up by the main adapter which results in you only have one USB-C port.
The Design of MacBook Air 2018
Although MacBook Air has a few cons, the design of this laptop is amazing. The reason is that this MacBook Air 2018 is the first generation which the body is made entirely from recycled metal.
The metal is formed from the remains of other MacBook laptops which have been machine milled and then they are gathered and re-smelted. This MacBook Air 13-inch 2018 also has an impressive speaker system.
The speaker system offers a wide soundstage with two new bass units on each side. With an impressive speaker system, MacBook Air 2018 produces a very good audio quality with many spatial separations between instruments and stereo panning.
