  • I have a 2017 MacBook Pro and the only thing I dislike is the keyboard. I tested out the keyboard on this laptop at a Best Buy and it is very awesome and allows for faster typing. I also like the fact that Apple included matching Apple stickers with the 2020 MacBook Air.

  • I don't get this one thing in laptops. If a $200 android phone can have a decent enough 1080p recording. Then why does laptop manufacturers use that cameras or atleast 1080p cameras for webcam. A dedicated webcam feels like a rip off to buy. It feels like an unnecessary device to use.

  • Please review the new Dell G7 15 with the i5H and 1660 Ti. It has an 86WHr battery and has the potential to be a great long-battery gaming laptop for under $1,000. I want to know - how comfortable is the keyboard? How is the screen - is it calibrated enough to be okay for photo editing? What is the battery life? Please and thank you!

  • I like the creamy gold variant which looks like a mix of the old gold & rose gold colors. The most concern for me is its thermal since some reviewers reported abnormal rise of temperature even on some basic tasks, like browsing LTclub. I understand the new Intel Y series CPUs are intended to work "fanlessly", but it'd be more proximal to perfection if Apple would have added a heat pipe between the fan, which is blowing nothing, and the CPU. If the baseline MacBook Pro 13.3" has the gold option, I believe more people would like to choose that model.

  • I literally just bought the MacBook air and it is incredible, all of the tech channels saying it overheats. Yes it gets warm when I do photo editing but its not HOT, just warm-ish. Even though I have the 8gb ram model it is still surprisingly snappy and quick. I find it a breeze doing online school work and listening to music. The battery lasts the entire day. Bottom line is, buy the air if you can't buy the "13 pro, great "cheap" alternative

    • @JT DR If all you are doing is writing papers, surfing the web and watching films, then by all means buy the MacBook. This is perfect for people like you, and the keyboard is really nice to type on. Me personally, after a month of use, returned mine because I started doing heavy 4k photo and video editing so I got a desktop. But if I were you, then yes the MacBook is perfect for what you need it for. And about the fan, it really should not turn on when writing papers and stuff. But when watching films for a long time, maybe. If you use headphones then it should be no problem. Edit: Also the speakers on the MacBook WILL blow you away, they sound phenomenal. The 2k resolution screen will look perfect for movies and shows. In the time I had my MacBook videos were always super enjoyable to watch. If you can wait, there are new MacBooks coming out as soon as late this year or early next year. They will be cheaper and more powerful. But this MacBook is still very good

    • Hi, everyone. I've pretty much seen all the reviews for this laptop and I'm 90% sure I'm gomna buy it. Just need that 10% from y'all though. While most of the reviews were very positive, I've seen comments about the fan (or lack thereof). And that's my only concern right now. Can it hold of like other macs? Just so y'all know I'm a researcher and content writer so I do basic browsing and writing almost everyday. And watch films / series for an extended amount of time. Would appreciate some long time users to respond. Thanks

    • @Alex Herrmann If you get the i5 it will be more responsive and fast when editing 4k. I recommend using DaVinci Resolve for editing because it does pre-rendering and it will be a lot more smoother. Just expect a few stutters here and there when editing, but it shouldn't be too bad of an experience

      C RodC RodPrieš 5 mėnesių
    • C Rod thank you. It will be 4k, I don't know a lot about laptop processors so do you know if I bought the i5 configuration with quad core would that make a big enough difference?

      Alex HerrmannAlex HerrmannPrieš 5 mėnesių
    • @Alex Herrmann If it's 4k then your MacBook will be cooked, the CPU will start throttlling and being slow. It can definitely handle 1080p video editing but just know the fan might turn on. The first time my fan turned on I got worried but it's nothing really.
