The 2018 MacBook Air is all new but how does it stack up to fanless laptops like the 12" MacBook?

  • I don’t see a reason to buy this when u can get the 2017 MacBook Pro for roughly the same price as that line is discounted on a frequent basis

    • @Solaxe S how is it almost 2x more expensive? On apple's website, the 2017 non Touch Bar MacBook Pro is only a $100 more than the MacBook Air 2018. If you go on best buy, micro center, etc, you can find the MacBook pros for the same price, if not cheaper than the airs.

  • How is THE MacBook Air compared to the New pro with TouchBar doing in programs like Logic Pro? Getting one mainly for music producing on the fly. I Love THE Gold color on the Air but dunno if It's powerful enough for Logic... Coming from an old 2013 i5 MacBook Air with 4giga of ram. It's been okay but in bigger projects it tends to crash / freeze up alot....

  • I bought the air as a backup/travel laptop and had to replace it with a 13” MBP. It struggled with basic programs like adobe acrobat and even the apple photos app. Seems to be made just for internet browsing.

    • In terms of pricing, you can get the 2017 MBP baseline for roughly the same price with discounts apparent at a lot of stores

  • I just want to point something out, I have had my Mac for 6 years and I’m finally upgrading. The Mac book pro is one of the best computers I have had because of how long it has lasted. The other computer I have had was a Microsoft computer and it lasted me 3 years. The price i don’t care about as long as it lasts me at 4 years

  • I'm waiting the new Macbook Air 2018 buy , but with this price I don't think so , I will go with Macbook Air 2017 at least I will have USB ports , magsafe charger ,SD Card , I don't want Retina and New Keyboard, I think the best decision for me is go with Macbook Air 2017 or Mackbook Pro 13 2017 Base , I think MBA 2018 like hybrid creature between MBA and MBP

  • Why would Apple lie and say there isn't a fan though? like, I don't care if there's a fan, but if they lie on purpose, won't it be suspicious that they were lying so that people won't get mad for using a Y series chipset?

  • Wow, an i5 8210Y. A similarly sized Dell inspiron running Mint is better in every possible way, excepting reasonable excuses about apple integration. Why would people go for the Air? At least with a more expensive Pro configuration, you're getting some~ of what you paid for Edit: now that I looked at it a bit more those T2 chip functions are pretty interesting, and I also like how it looks with the case opened up, nice footage here!

  • Ouch...250 points in Cinebench....that's quite painful! That makes it even slower (20% slower) than the slowest core i3 8th gen ulv processor...the i3 8130U! AND also 220% slower than the slowest core i5 8250U! That's just atrocious! In my country, the base MacBook Air 2018 costs 1600 euro! (The Netherlands, Europe) This MacBook will make everyone's wallet litterally 'Air'...
