Apple MacBook Air MQD32HN/A 13.3-inch Laptop 2017 Review(By users) –

1. This apple laptop is the most basic of all of its laptops.
 2. The line goes like Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, Macbook Pro with retina display and touch bar.
 3. So now coming to this product. This is the Macbook Air. This product was launched some where in 2007. Since then it is been regularly updated.
 4. The last update of Macbook Air was in 2015. It's processor was updated to 1.6 GHz
 5. Recently the same Macbook Pro was again updated to a new speed of 1.8 GHz this is more of a refresh rather than a machine update.
 6. Today processor speeds of 1.8 GHz are mediocre. You can buy any laptop around 60k and you will easily get much better speeds.
 7. It is a rumour that the current set of Macbook Air laptops might be discontinued by apple after this upgrade.
 8. So as you can see. This ultra book is not meant for programmers, gamers and performance freaks.
 9. Please remember that this machine has been one of the most successful machines of apple over the last decade or so.
 10. Hence if you are a normal computer user who aspires to surf net, watch youtube videos, listen to peaceful music, light editing, use apps to take notes and other basic tasks then this machine can be excellent.
 11. I can assure you that this app will not lag in basic tasks.
 12. It has a battery life of 9 hour plus if used judiciously. Which is it's fundamental strength.
 13. I have an hp product which I got for 85k in Oct 2016. It is no where near this Mac in overall performance. As I have to charge it over and over again. Trust me battery life matters alot.
 14. So my advice to prospective buyers is that if you want a solid laptop which would stay with you even while you are travelling. If you want a crisp handy laptop with an excellent built quality close your eyes and go for this.
 15. Apple support is excellent. If you still want a more powerful laptop go for Macbook Pro.
Air benefits compared to Non Apple laptop:
 1 Slim and light weight for daily travel
 2 10-11 hours battery backup on normal usage
 3 Apple touch pads are awesome, smooth and responsive compared to any premium laptop
 4 Audio quality on speakers is good, but not as loud as my Macbook Pro 13
 5 Apple front camera works the best in low light, best for low light skype calls
 6 SSD - Apps launch very fast despite the low power processor
 7 Metal body construction
 8 Mag safe charger- If you are really careless this helps very much.
 9 Ambient light sensor that adjusts brightness automatically ( Many people are not aware of this feature)
 10 Keep your Air closed or leave somewhere idle and check back after 2 or 3 days, you will see battery has dropped less than 3 or 4 %
 11 The best part - Mac OS, contains all that you need, a neat calendar, Todos app, notes, Quicktime, Mail app etc. Hassle free OS

Air demerits compared to Non Apple laptop:
. Performance is on lower side
. Good for basic usage only, internet, movies, video calls, spreadsheets, mail
. You will get better display(Full HD) if you buy a 999$ Ultrabook from US (In India they come at premium)

Should you consider Macbook PRO? – PRO advantages
I know a lot of people might be confused whether to go with PRO for some additional bucks. So listing benefits of pro from my experience

. Force touch – More comfortable touch pad, less finger pain compared to buttons on Air, Adjustable pressure
.Retina display – More pixels, Better viewing angle. Air is 1440×900 while PRO is 2560×1600 pixels
. Better performance – Pro CPU is actually about 50% faster than AIR, but in real world tests, apps launch at similar speed in both PRO and Air. The difference is notable only when you run CPU intensive tasks like Programming, Video encoding, Photo editing, Raw conversion etc. Those who are not into this can go with Air and save some money.
. Newer CPU – Macbook air has not evolved much compared to PRO. The 2017 Air uses the same fifth generation CPU as the previous version (2015). But with a little upgrade in CPU speed. ie 1.6 GHz to 1.8 GHz. The newer PROs come with 7th generation Intel processors. The difference is mainly with the energy consumption.
. HDMI port – You don’t need display port adapter
. New keyboard – The 2016 PRO has the same keyboard as the “Macbook”. Keys are less deeper and more wider. This makes it little more comfortable to type. Air comes with the same old keyboard as 2015 PRO
. Wider touch pad – Not a big deal. But if someone loves that, its a bonus
. Color options – Yes, Air is only available in Silver, PRO comes in 3 color options

If you think, all the above justifies the price difference between the PRO and Air, go for the PRO. The only benefit that Air offers is battery life. PRO offers 8-9 hours only, while Air offers, 11-12 hours battery.

Whom Air is for?
 Macbook air is not a gaming machine or for hard core users. Its for people who love to watch lot of movies, work on documents, browse and some basic programming. When i say programming, Xcode works fine on Macbook air. But Software like Android studio, Photoshop seems to struggle a little on Air. But if you are once in a while user of intensive apps, you can ignore this.
