Last month, Apple released a couple of their new high-end devices during their latest launching event. Among those high-end devices were the 2016 MacBook Pro, Apple TV and many more. But what about the 2016 MacBook Air?
During the past few months, rumors have been flying that the latest MacBook Air will be the last of its kind, but there is not confirmation yet of that rumor. It seems that the 2016 MacBook Air is not receiving any love and recognition that it ought to have. Some say it is due to the fact that is being overshadowed by the 2016 MacBook Pro. But thinking about the 2016 MacBook Air, is it worth buying? Here are the top 3 reasons and other reasons why you should buy one according to a written article at Laptop Mag:
1. It is under $1000
With the latest 2016 MacBook Pro, it starts with the price of $1,499, while that 2016 MacBook Air is around $999. Even though the average laptop these days starts at around $610, the 2016 MacBook Air guarantees people of their money's worth. With Apple products (except for early smartwatches), most of their products will not have many shortcomings compared to other brands in terms of performance, thus making the 2016 MacBook Air worth buying.
2. Long battery life
There has been no laptop up to date that can match the battery life of the 2016 MacBook Air. It is quite vexing the need to be always in constant alert in saving battery life and worrying if there will be a place you can recharge, especially when traveling. Another problem about always recharging is that it depletes the battery performance of your device.
Have you ever noticed when you have a new device and at first it will take 12 hours or depending how long it can lasts before it needs to be recharged again, then fast forward 8 months later the same device can only last for 7-8 hours tops or less compared to when you first bought it before it needs to be recharged again?
If you're going to say not to constantly recharge it or use it always is a crazy. If you're going to do that, what was the first point in buying the device if you're not going to use it? Especially like a laptop or cellphone.
3. Great functionality (Ports and other things)
With the ports, it sports "MagSafe" connectors. This is a great thing, because it means that users can send power, data, and video over a single connection without needing to through the hassle of finding empty ports to plug in your external devices.
Though the 2016 MacBook Air has a 5th Generation Core Series processor and a low resolution 1440 x 900 screen, it still is capable of competing with other new laptops. There might be some issues depending on the user's preferences, but in terms of functionality and performance, the 2016 MacBook Air is worth buying under a $1000 budget.
Apple is brand known for its tech prowess and somewhat expensive price tags. But even with that, most of their products is guaranteed to be worth the money you paid for. And given that they are offering the 2016 MacBook Air below $1000, this is a smart buy for anyone who wants a powerful laptop.
