I finally did it; I ordered a new Macbook Air on thursday, and it arrived the day after.
I always chose to put in as much memory and CPU power as possible when I get a new computer; not because I need it now, but to hopefully get a computer that is usable everything from a few months to a few years longer.
Macbook Air vs Macbook Pro with a retina screen.
I have been going back and forth on this issue many times during the last few months, and I decided to go for a new Air. First of all, I might have ordered a retina model if the new retina models have been out by now.
You might wonder why I did not wait. I didn’t wait because my old Air was very close to dying on me. And I could not afford to wait any longer.
This computer is more or less the same as the one I had. It’s faster, longer battery life and much more memory.
The 4GB memory limit on my 2011 Macbook Air was without doubt the biggest issue I had with it.
Other than that? I can’t see much of a change.
The new power adapter standard from Apple is the one and only thing that I do not like at all about this computer. I understand why they did it, but I still don’t like it.
I own many of the old Magsafe-1 chargers, five to be exact. – My office – One in each of my two bags – At home – My parents house
Because of the amazing 12 hours of battery that this model have to offer, I might not need five adapters. I’m almost never 12 hours at my office, and when I am I could just bring out the adapter from one of my bags.
It’s a great evolution.
Very few Apple products is a revolution, but this new Macbook Air model is a great evolution, of a great products line. And I would like always recommend most people a Macbook Air.
