  • What buyers say about Apple MacBook Air


    I damaged my Macbook air and it's not good, but I can use it with an external monitor, and I'm able to get a new one for less than half the price of a new one.


    It's nice to have lots of ports and mag charger, but I don't think it's a bad thing for every laptop in 2020.


    I love that I can use it with my other apple products as well, and the FaceTime is still good, but it looks fuzzy on the laptop compared to my phones clarity. The FaceTime is still good but looks kinda fuzzy on the laptop compared to my phones clarity.


    The keyboard is a joy to type on even if it is controversial, and there are plenty of ports and mag charging accessories that are convenient and appreciated.


    The camera on the newer Air was much worse than the older one, and I was amazed at how good it was for my 7 year old.
