When Apple finally announced a new MacBook Air in late October, I ordered one immediately. Like many MacBook Air owners and fans, I couldn’t understand why the firm had let the product languish for so long. But the new Air is controversial for a number of reasons. It utilizes Apple’s unreliable “butterfly” keyboard and a strangely underpowered Intel Core i5-8210Y processor.
In use, however, I didn’t have an issue with either. As I noted in my review, the MacBook Air is mostly excellent. Performance has been excellent in typical day-to-day tasks. And that keyboard? I can’t vouch for its reliability but I actually like the typing experience. Weird, I know.
