Testrapporten voor de Apple MacBook Air 2018

88.4% Kort testrapport Apple MacBook Air 2018 (i5, 256 GB) Laptop | Notebookcheck
Apple negeerde vrijwel zijn MacBook Air een paar jaar en er waren veel speculaties over het einde van de serie. Nu krijgen we een volledig opnieuw ontworpen model, inclusief een modern beeldscherm. Is het voor veel gebruikers een alternatief voor de duurdere MacBook Pro 13 of is het apparaat enigszins overbodig?
70% Apple MacBook Air Review
Bron: Tweakers Nederlands
De MacBook Air heeft een metamorfose ondergaan en heeft nu een goed Retina-scherm gekregen, terwijl de accuduur met 10,5 uur tijdens browsen nog altijd goed is. Helaas heeft het toetsenbord nu net zo weinig travel als dat van andere MacBooks en is de processor niet veel sneller dan zijn voorganger uit 2015. Het instapmodel kost 1350 euro en dat is veel geld gezien de niet bijzondere hardware, waaronder de ssd van 128GB. Upgraden kost ook veel en zelf onderdelen vervangen is er niet bij. Het belangrijkste effect van de prijsverhoging is dat het prijsverschil met de MacBook Pro nog maar 150 euro is en die laptop is sneller, heeft een beter scherm en een vergelijkbare accuduur. Dat maakt de MacBook Air een prima reden om door te sparen voor de MacBook Pro.

We’re so happy that Apple has revived the MacBook Air. We were convinced that the company intended to remove it from the line up in favour of the MacBook. In fact, by updating the MacBook Air, Apple has thrown the regular MacBook into an existential crisis: with the Air now becoming the perfect laptop for anyone who values portability, the MacBook really doesn't have a lot to offer.

The Apple MacBook Air 2018 refresh improves on what was already considered the best ultrabook, but at the same time, also brings in a significant price bump. The earlier MacBook Air was one of the most affordable and powerful ultrabooks one could buy and while the 2018 MacBook Air continues to be powerful, it is no longer the best value for money device. It is still a great device for work which is guaranteed to last you a few years. It is perfect for watching movies as well, but if you're looking for a photo or video editing machine, this is definitely not it. For everything else, its great.

A remodel that's been long overdue, the new Air brings a shrunken footprint, higher-res display, less bezel, Touch ID login, fewer ports, a divisive keyboard and a higher price tag than its predecessor. Some great features for sure, but a few irks hold (mainly the keyboard) hold it back from being the perfect laptop.

85% Apple MacBook Air (2018) review: The Air we have been waiting for
Bron: Hardware Zone Engels EN→NL
Nevertheless, if you must have a notebook that runs macOS - and I completely understand as a fellow macOS user - then the MacBook Air is the ideal pick for most users. Build quality remains class-leading, performance is good despite the low-power processor, and battery life is exemplary. With the new MacBook Air, Apple has given most users all the features that they requested for, namely a Retina Display, Touch ID, and two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports. It is also more compact and lighter. In short, it is everything that most people want from a MacBook Air. I only wish they hadn’t taken so long.

80% MacBook Air review: Out with the old and in with the new, for better or worse
Bron: Macworld.co.uk Engels EN→NL
There are two ways to look at the new MacBook Air. Apple pitches it as a ground-up redesign of its most beloved laptop, and by that measure it’s a little disappointing. It’s slightly more compact and a little bit lighter, and it has Touch ID, Thunderbolt 3, a better trackpad, and better speakers. And of course, it has a Retina display. In all those ways, it is better than the old MacBook Air.

85% Apple MacBook Air (2018) review: Apple's veteran ultraportable gets a facelift
Bron: Zdnet.com Engels EN→NL
It may be long overdue, but the 2018 edition of the MacBook Air pulls off a good balancing act. Rather than a ground-up revamp, this new model concentrates on refining the elegant, lightweight design that made the MacBook Air so popular in the first place, while also bringing it up to date with features such as the Retina Display and T2 security chip. And while the MacBook Air certainly isn't cheap it's not far out of step with the pricing of rival Windows ultraportables. It's made out of 100 percent recycled aluminium too, so you can feel good about the environment when you show it off in your local coffee shop.

The new Air is precisely the upgrade many users have been holding out for, with a slimmed-down body, sharper Retina display, long battery life and a useful Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Though it’s more than fast enough for common use cases, some might prefer to spend $100 on the entry-level MacBook Pro to get more processing power.

Based on first impressions, I think the MacBook Air will be a hit and has a very good chance of being one of the best-selling notebooks this coming Christmas season.

MacBook Air review: Out with the old and in with the new, for better or worse
Bron: Good Gear Guide Engels EN→NL
If you’re familiar with the 12-inch MacBook, using the new MacBook Air makes it immediately obvious that this is a slightly updated and scaled-up version of that model, with the “Air” name attached. If you’ve been waiting for years for Apple to finally re-imagine the MacBook Air in a way that will once again revolutionize the thin-and-light laptop market, you’re going to be disappointed to find that it has only been brought up to the standards of other modern Mac laptops, with all the good and bad that goes with that.

MacBook Air review: Center of the Mac world?
Bron: Six Colours Engels EN→NL
Still, Apple has placed the MacBook Air back where it spent the first part of this decade: firmly at the center of the Apple laptop universe. It’s not the cheapest or fastest or lightest laptop, but it’s the lowest-priced Retina Mac and it’s powerful and flexible enough to serve the needs of the broad audience for consumer Macs. The new geographic center of the Mac is once again where it’s been for most of this decade: It’s the MacBook Air.

The 2018 MacBook Air is a huge improvement, but it seems there’s room for more. If you really need an Air and that’s what you’re used to using, you’ll probably be very happy with the $1,199 purchase. But if you expected a tiny powerhouse, you may wind up a little disappointed.

Apple Announces 2018 MacBook Air: Entry-Level Laptop Gets Essential Refresh
Bron: AnandTech Engels EN→NL
On the whole then, the new MacBook Air should be a significant upgrade from the previous model in almost every way, from processing power to display quality. However the increased focus on quality is also matched by an increased price tag, and in general is in-line with Apple’s efforts to focus more on high-end, high-margin products in the Mac space. As a result the new Air starts at $1199, $200 more than the previous model. Notably this is $100 cheaper than the base 12-inch MacBook, meaning this is still the cheapest (modern) MacBook Apple offers. Though it does seem to put a nail in the coffin of the idea of a sub-$1000 MacBook, especially as Apple seems more interested in moving those users on to the new iPad Pros.
