  • What buyers say about Apple MacBook Air - Space Gray


    I decided to use the MBA after looking at many reviews and I am very happy I did...I had an early-release 2010 which I loved and lasted until 2016 despite having a cracked rib.


    It works great for everyday use, including email, web-surfing, live streaming movies/shows, light video editing, and iMovie, and I can use my job's remote client application with it.


    I was a bit hesitant to buy a MacBook just for these tasks, but I feel like it will come in handy, even though I initially felt like it would be a waste.


    I ordered my MacBook Air from Apple within an hour of the announcement and have been using it for a few days. I'm upgrading from a 2018? retina MacBook Air, and the 2020 model is a very worthwhile upgrade for a few reasons.


    I think the i3 model is the best choice for the MacBook Air as it doesn't sound impressive, and the laptop does have overheating issues, which is why I give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

    Common Questions

    Q:

    Is it possible to download apps on this macbook?

    A:

    You can download apps if you look for the A icon in the blue circle.

    Q:

    Is it possible to get a restocking fee?

    A:

    You would need to contact Amazon or the company that is shipping it to find out.

    Q:

    The 512gb option doesn't come with an i5 processor, does anyone have one?

    A:

    Yes, the i5 comes with the 512gb HD, but it is confusing and could be worded better.

    Q:

    Can this Macbook handle video games like Call of Duty or minecraft? My current version gets real hot even when the fan is running.

    A:

    I haven't tried playing video games on my Mac, but other reviews and answered questions said it wasn't the right device for that.

    Q:

    Is it possible for this macbook to have the os upgraded to sierra in order to use an app crucial to my workflow?

    A:

    It can be done as I was told the same thing to be able to run some software myself, but was told to have a professional tech do it rather than attempting to do it myself.
