MacBook Air and Mac mini: The reviews are in

Reviewers from across the globe are sharing their reactions to the new MacBook Air and Mac mini. Here’s what they are saying about the Retina display, Touch ID, Force Touch trackpad and more portable design of MacBook Air and the powerful performance and all-flash storage of Mac mini:

MacBook Air


“[The new MacBook Air] gives consumers almost everything they loved about earlier MacBook Airs, but with a beautiful new display and improved performance.”

Gear Patrol

“It’s essentially now the perfect computer for anyone looking for a macOS laptop for ‘normal’ things, like browsing the web, drafting documents, answering emails, watching movies or even occasional work in Adobe’s creative suite.”


“In addition to the hardware, the MacBook Air works beautifully with the new macOS Mojave, only enhancing its featured capabilities like Group FaceTime, which I tried and, unsurprisingly, looked really sharp on the Retina display. It also looks really good with Mojave’s new Dark Mode, which uses a dark color scheme instead of the traditional light scheme and reduces glare, eye fatigue, and contrast. The battery life is no joke either — and can support up to 12 hours of continued use.”


“Apple has heard the calls for a newer, better MacBook Air, and it has answered.”

“The new Air is exactly that: the MacBook most people should buy, and exactly the MacBook everyone has been asking Apple to make.”

“This hugely popular Mac has been brought back to life with a stunning new lightweight design, improved Retina screen and added extras such as Touch ID and Apple’s Force Touch trackpad. Fans of this laptop are going to love this update as it takes the concept of power and ultimate portability to a whole new level.”
