Reviewed

The MacBook Air 2018 is Apple’s biggest laptop update in years. A completely new design, new ports and new internal specifications make the 2018 MacBook Air almost completely unrecognisable compared with the previous model, the design of which was largely unchanged for a decade. So is it worth the wait, or has Apple overcomplicated its winning formula with a laptop that’s £250 more expensive than its predecessor?
