A Review of the New MacBook Air

The new Apple MacBook Air has arrived, and it brings with it a newly designed chassis, a new chip, a bigger screen, and a whole range of other new features and improvements over the already highly respected M1 MacBook Air. So, how does Apple's ultra-portable laptop perform with all these upgrades? This excellent video review takes a look at everything you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Engadget, this great video review takes a look at the new MacBook Air. I am personally quite excited for the new MacBook Air. My first Apple computer was a 2010 MacBook Air, and I always loved its extreme portability, especially as someone walking to campus every day. I switched to a MacBook Pro for the last seven years, but with the advent of Apple silicon and its ability to tackle photo editing easily, it was a no-brainer to preorder the new Air now that I am ready to upgrade my 2015 MacBook Pro. I'm excited that I will have the most portable model again and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of mine. Check out the video above for the full rundown, and be sure to let me know if you have preordered one yourself!

The lack of a touch screen is still a sticking point for me.

Just curious, why would need/want to touch the screen? Seems to me it's just going to get all smudgy (that would drive me nuts) and not really an efficient way of editing.

I guess it's what you get used to. I've been using one for years and gotten used to it, especially since I don't really like trackpads. I don't see using a touchpad laptop is any different from using my iPad.
