More about this Apple MacBook Air

With the ability to perform most everyday tasks, this model is the most well-balanced of all the Macs — especially for the price, since MacBook Pros can cost quite a bit more. Average buyers will find good reasons to choose this model over those offered by competitors.

This previous model Apple MacBook Air has a 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor. With the Turbo Boost feature, speed can even reach up to 2.9GHz. That is decent processing power for an entry-level Mac. It was good enough to handle watching videos, word processing, web browsing, and even working in Photoshop when we tested it. Bottom line: This is a great option for day-to-day needs, though we noticed some slowdowns when we had lots of tabs open while multitasking with different media apps.

While there are more powerful alternatives in the market today, the MacBook Air is still worth the investment. Not sure if you need a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro? This comparison post will help you get to the bottom of those questions.
