    The 2014 Mac Air VS the New Mac Air

    I own two Mac Airs. One from 2014 and this one. I would like to compare the two because I feel there are some features on the older version that are more desirable.

    1. The Battery

    The new Mac battery lasts forever and charges quickly with a USB-C port. I favor the older magnetic charger but that's a small thing.

    2. Display

    The new display is very clear however, the screen extends to the very edge of the device similar to the iPhone. So if you drop this device you're screwed. I dropped my 2014 and it dented the edge of the screen but didn't break the glass because of the extra aluminum edge. I don't think the new Mac screen would survive this.

    3. The web cam

    The 2014 is very dark for some reason. The new Mac seems to have fixed this issue with a nice and clear video.

    4. USB ports

    The 2014 has 2 USB-A ports, a lighting connection port, phone jack and an SDXC card slot

    The new Mac only has two USB-C ports and a headphone jack! so you need a number of adapters to connect anything which is quite annoying especially since my wireless mouse uses an old USB-A. Apple only sells limited adapters so you need to buy PC adapters which I'm not crazy about. However I have a dual USB-A adapter from Dell that works great

    5. The Chip

    The M1 chip is lighting fast. Even though my 2014 has an 1.4 Ghz dual core I5, it doesn't compare.

    6. The famous logo

    It's another little thing but, I liked the illuminated apple logo on the back of the 2014. Maybe its no longer there to extend battery life? Idk but I thought it was a nice feature that separated apple from the rest.

    Read BEFORE purchasing “Open box” condition!

    I bought this online in “Open box” condition meaning the display model. It was described as being on excellent condition and all in all I ended up paying around $970 for it after taxes and fees. When I first received the laptop I was immediately in awe of its beauty (I bought the rose gold version) However upon trying to set up the laptop and gain access into it I ran into a bunch of issues which required me to contact Apple support. Best Buy had not done a software reset on the laptop before shipping it to me which resulted in me not being able to log in or set up my password. It was only after 2 days of receiving it that Apple finally pin pointed the issue and was able to walk me through doing a complete reset thereby allowing me to finally gain access into my laptop! Ever since then I’ve been in love with it! My only small complaint would be that I have to buy an adapter now to be able to connect my phone to it, other than that this was a great buy!

    Macbook Gal

    I've purchased this model of the MacBook; the day after Christmas. When I bought it, I fell in love with it. I bought the Gold Color; which I thought was cute. Although the MacBook came with the 256GB which I thought was enough. I bought this MacBook for online school, it is so flawless. I love the quietness, no viruses and the compatibility. It is very fast. This is my first MacBook and I will keep it forever.

    My one and only daily driver for everything

    I have been using this laptop as my daily driver ever since the day I purchased it. It has never overheated. The most it ever gets is a bit warm after having 10+ windows and applications open in the background. The feeling of the laptop is therapeutic and feels amazing, but I recommend having some form of protection because it does feel like one drop from a decent height can be fatal. The display is great. The sound is from the speakers are actually more than decent. Overall, this MacBook Air has been amazing. Highly recommend!

    Speedy new me!

    Replaced my 10-year-old MacBook Air & I am so happy. The new one has many improvements, for example in the grammar & spelling corrections. Speed is greatly improved. Unfortunately the USB port is different so I had to buy an adapter to look at any old flash drives. Not sure why they did that, but since it’s Apple, I’m sure there was a good reason.

    Best machine at Best Buy

    M1 chip is faster than core i5. I see there is quite a big difference in machine handling concurrent applications at a time. Really nice improvement by Apple.

    Look no further....THIS IS IT!!

    Absolutely FANTASTIC! I love the size and weight of this MacBook. The keyboard and trackpad are awesome!! It all works and performs as you would expect from a premium computer. I bought a Incase Icon sleeve to store in when not in use. That is a must have accessory to have to protect computer. This was my second MacBook Air purchase. I purchased first one from Apple directly. I liked mine so much I bought the girlfriend this one for her birthday from Best Buy. She's in love with it as well. Thank you Apple and Best Buy!

    My First Macbook and a great one

    My entry to Apple’s ecosystem started with an iphone , which motivated me to buy a mac just to get a feel of it.

    However after I purchased this mac, I love how powerful this macbook is. The sound is crisp and the screen is crystal clear.This is a treat to my senses. I develop applications in Java and my apps compile at lightning speed making the overall dev process faster.

    Great upgrade for a laptop!

    I previously owned a 2017 MacBook Air which wasn’t a bad choice but for what I’m doing now the 2020 MacBook Pro has easy, cool new features I wasn’t used to. I now have the memory/storage for all of my Creative Cloud programs and photos from Photography. I just started Drafting and AutoCAD for Mac runs pretty good in my opinion. The processor is faster and definitely keeps up!

    Artist

    I was a first grader when it came to anything tech and was afraid to buy a laptop for that reason. As an Art Instructor, during COVID, unique teaching methods had to be considered and used and I had to get into the modern way of doing things. The salespeople and Geek Squad made it so easy for me, and are so welcoming and attentive to my need that, in just a few short weeks, I now feel like a fourth grader in the tech department!!! Thank you!

    Outstanding

    In the past year I have gone through 2 Laptop computers. Unfortunately that saying you get what you pay for is true, I cannot express how HAPPY I am with this device. The picture doesn't do it justice it is very beautiful. I have the Ice Blue model Specs 10th Gen intel core i5 processor 128GB. Very fast, EXTREAMLY responsive one of if not the best computers "window" computers that is...I have ever had. The crazy part is that this is considered one of their budget models and the budget laptops I have gotten in the past TRULY are budget. This one feels different from boot up until I am finish working on the device. $600+ no isn't cheap, however then again that saying you get what you pay for rings true; a little more for a more reliable computer is well worth it. Great for kids who are learning from home, Great for work at homers like myself. Yes, you can even play games I played The Sims game, which isn't using near as much graphics or cpu as other games ; I found no issues still. My other duds would close out or not respond while playing The Sims. YOU will not be disappointed with this device. I PROMISE.

    Small and light laptop for uni

    A nice, small and light laptop. Bought primarily for having around school. It has good enough specs to run more intensive programs such as solidworks and less intensive games. Would recommend for anyone who is looking for a decently priced, light laptop who does not want to spend a lot of money on overkill specs.

    When I was looking to get a new laptop, I knew I wanted a surface, I just wasn’t sure which one. This one was in a good price range and was what I needed for what I was planning to do (writing). This laptop is nothing overly special per day, but it’s exactly what I needed.

    Beautiful Workhorse

    I am IN LOVE with this beautiful work-of-art laptop, which shows what's possible with both form and function are top notch! It's glorious to look at and effortless to work on. I haven't been so happy with a purchase in A LONG LONG TIME!!! And just when you thought things couldn't get any better, I used my new Best Buy credit card and paid it off in short order, which meant I didn't (a) have to come up with the whole purchase price at once, and (b) didn't have to spend anything in interest charges, either. I'd call the whole experience a WIN, WIN, WIN!

    This computer is a joy to own

    I got this computer as a travel machine, as I do my home computing on a large desktop Mac. I do a lot of photo work in addition to normal text/spreadsheets/email and other functions, so I wanted a fast machine with a sharp screen. I love the size and light weight, the clarity of the screen, the function keys on the keyboard, the speed, and the quietness of operation. I'm very pleased so far, and expect to remain so. I bought this as a refurbished machine, and it is in excellent condition.

    Used MacBook Air

    Buyer Beware! I will never buy a "slightly" used computer from Best Buy ever again. I have so many complaints. First, I did not appreciate the unprofessional condition that the computer came in. The computer came wrapped in bubble wrap, with no box or no instructions. The computer was clearly dirty, with finger print smudges, dirt spots, and the screen was no different. The keyboard had clear finger smudges, grease stains, and sticky. The charger was simply thrown into the box and the cord was not wrapped. The charger's cord had multiple dents in it, as it someone had chewed it repeatedly. The charger also gets very hot after plugging it for short periods of time. The computer was never cleaned and I had to disinfect it. Finally, the computer gets stuck often, I have to reboot and restart it, almost daily. I had no choice but to keep it as I had given my old computer to a colleague and was under a time deadline for my work. I contacted BestBuy.com and they were not apologetic and simply told me that the computer was advertised as "slightly used" and not as new. They only gave me a $30 discount because I demanded it to use toward a new charger. I'm very disappointed, as I would have never expected this from Best Buy. However, this experience has me questioning if I would ever trust or purchase from Best Buy again. Buyer Beware.
