Reviewed

The MacBook Air from last year was Apple’s biggest laptop update in years. A completely new design, new ports and new internal specifications made the new MacBook Air almost completely unrecognisable compared with the previous model, the design of which was largely unchanged for a decade. The 2019 MacBook Air is largely identical internally and externally to last year’s model, with just some small tweaks to the keyboard and an updated screen to show for itself, as well as a slightly lower price. It’s now the cheapest current-generation MacBook you can buy, but should you?
