Apple MacBook Air (2017) review: An old friend shows its age


Apple's MacBook Air is as close to iconic as a piece of consumer technology gets. It's the single laptop model you're most likely to see everywhere, from college campuses to airports to coffee shops and even offices. And it's been that way for a very long time.

That's the problem. Not counting an incremental spec bump in mid-2017, this is still internally almost the same MacBook Air as the last refresh in 2015, and externally, it's had basically the same design since 2010 (when the original 2008 design got an overhaul). In technology terms, that's roughly forever.

But it's also a testament to what a strong product the Air was in its heyday. To have a laptop that looks and feels the same as it did for so many years while still a maintaining a loyal following, that's a rare achievement. The MacBook Air is no longer the best-for-almost-everyone device it once was, but it's the least expensive way (by far) to get MacOS on a laptop, so there's certainly still a place for it. Note that the Air we tested had a Core i7 CPU and 256GB SSD upgrade, for a total of $1,349, £1,234 or AU$2,039. The Air still starts at $999, £949 and AU$1,499, and can be found for even less online.

Still kicking

And a lot about the MacBook Air still works. As a long-time Air user, but also someone who hasn't spent a lot of time on one over the last few years, firing up the 2017 version felt like visiting an old friend.

There's the just-right size of the 13-inch screen, still the best balance between viewability and portability; the rock-solid aluminum body, which can stand up to years of abuse; and the chunky island-style keyboard, itself now extinct across the rest of the MacBook line, replaced by super-shallow butterfly keys that lack this level of tactile feedback.

The Air also scores points for being the last MacBook with a good, old-fashioned USB-A port. You know, the kind that every mouse, memory key and other accessory you own fits into. The MacBook Pro and the 12-inch MacBook have both gone all-in on USB-C, which is forward-looking to be sure, but a limiting frustration for many.

Picking it up, I was reminded of another reason I loved this particular laptop line for so long: the MagSafe power connection. The plug, which automatically pulls away from the body when you yank the cord or trip over it, remains one of the most brilliant bits of consumer PC engineering ever. 

It's since been replaced by USB-C power connections, which are handy for sharing data, power, video and other connections through the same port, but not nearly as flexible. That classic MagSafe has rescued many, many laptops from a grim fate over the years, and that's just the ones I've personally almost killed. 

Feeling its age

But using a MacBook Air, even a brand new one, in 2017 feels like getting stuck in a bit of a time warp. The processor is years out of date compared to newer slim laptops -- even though the big update for 2017 is a slight base CPU uptick, from a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 to a 1.8GHz one, or in our case, an optional 2.2GHz Core i7. All are from the same fifth generation of those chips, while Intel is about to announce details of the upcoming eighth-generation Core CPUs.

I'd argue that for websurfing, video streaming and social media, it's not a huge deal to have an older-generation processor, but for a thousand bucks and up, you're not wrong to want something newer. It is great, however, to get 8GB of RAM as the default now, over the previous 4GB. The optional Core i7 in our test system helped the Air keep pace with, or beat, some slim laptops with newer Core i5 CPUs. But much more importantly, the Air is still a battery life king, running more than 10 hours.

The single biggest thing that keeps the MacBook Air stuck in the past is its display. This is a 1,440x900-pixel display, the same as the Air has used for many generations. It's also not an IPS display, the in-plane switching technology found in newer laptops that helps with off-axis viewing. For anything above an ultrabudget laptop, it's not wrong to expect a higher resolution, especially in 2017, where even bargain basement televisions have 4K panels, and a growing number of midrange laptops are shooting past 1,920x1,080 towards 2,560x1,440 or even 4K.

So many new devices have shaved down the bezel, which is what we call the outer border around the screen. TVs and phones are nearly bezel-free today, and high-end laptops like the Dell XPS 13 or Samsung Notebook 9 are following the same path. By comparison, the wide silver border around the 13-inch MacBook Air screen may be the single most dated thing about the design.

Two years ago, I said: "On the Air, you have a very thick bezel, the dead space between the edge of the display and the edge of the lid ... giving you a less premium look and feel." The feeling is even more pronounced now, especially as the MacBook and MacBook Pro combine great higher-resolution screens with much thinner borders.

It's a price thing

I know it sounds like I've judged the MacBook Air harshly for not keeping up with the times, but there's an important mitigating factor that could still make it the right choice for a great many shoppers.

The original MacBook Air launched in 2008 (with a single USB port and a slow non-SSD hard drive!) at $1,799 in the US. Over time that came down to $999 for the base 13-inch Air, which is where it still sits today. That's $300 less than either a 12-inch MacBook or the lowest-end 13-inch MacBook Pro (both start at $1,299, £1,249 or AU$1,899), making this the most affordable MacBook by a wide margin.

Spending around the same on a new Windows laptop will get you a better display, newer processor and probably more RAM and SSD storage (and even a hybrid hinge and touchscreen) -- but if you're determined to buy a MacOS laptop over a Windows 10 one, this is the least expensive option.

Even better, while Apple sells the 13-inch MacBook Air for $999 and up, it's often easy to find at many US retailers for $899 or less, or $100 off the higher-end 256GB SSD configuration. Pre-2017 models, which are essentially identical in almost every way, can be found for as little as $799.

Years ago, I called the MacBook Air the most universally useful laptop you could buy, because of its great design, long battery life and decent specs. Today, its appeal isn't quite as broad, and the design is definitely showing its age. But the lower prices available from some retailers, plus performance that's decent enough and battery life that still tops 10 hours, has given the Air another shot -- perhaps its last one -- at avoiding the old laptop retirement home.

TODAY'S BEST DEALS

July 9 Update: Apple discontinued this MacBook Air, leaving just the 2018 MacBook Air in its place.

You may not have noticed, but Apple upgraded the MacBook Air in 2017. Specifically, the $999 13-inch notebook got a slightly speedier, 1.8-GHz Core i5 CPU, upgrading from a 1.6-GHz Core i5 processor. While we appreciate that the Air still has the best-feeling keyboard on a Mac and its USB 3.0 ports don't send us shopping for dongles, this machine's low-res display holds it back. However, if you're looking for a relatively affordable Mac laptop, the Air is a solid choice..

MacBook Air 2017 Design

The MacBook Air's unibody aluminum chassis is so iconic that it's tied in my head to the late 2000s and early 2010s. Back then, it was the new kid on the streets, but now, everyone from Acer to LG is making even thinner metallic unibody notebooks.

Weighing 3.0 pounds and measuring 0.7 inches thick, the MacBook Air doesn't measure up well to more modern machines. The Acer Swift 7 (2.5 pounds, 0.4 inches), Asus ZenBook UX330UA (2.7 pounds, 0.5 inches) and 12-inch Apple MacBook (2.0 pounds, 0.5 inches) are all lighter and thinner.

MacBook Air 2017 ports

The Air splits its dual USB 3.0 ports between its sides, with a MagSafe 2 charging connector and headphone jack on the left and an SDXC memory reader and Thunderbolt 2.0 port on the right.

While some will lament the lack of USB Type-C or Thunderbolt 3 ports, I'm perfectly happy living an adapter-free life with those USB 3.0 ports and feeling like my notebook is safer thanks to the MagSafe connector. When you apply tension, this cable detaches more easily and safely than USB Type-C cables, which would pull a device down with it when snagged by a running pet or child.

MacBook Air 2017 display

The MacBook's 1440 x 900-pixel screen has aged more poorly than any of its other aspects, lacking full HD and vibrant colors. While the screen managed to emit inky-black tones for a John Wick: Chapter 2 trailer, a wooden chest in the clip appeared more faded than it should have, and a burning house didn't offer proper glow.

Even though Apple doesn't seem to believe the Air needs a Retina-level, or at least full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display, I felt as if my eyes had gotten worse after using this machine for extended periods, as text on the screen doesn't look as sharp as it does on any of my personal devices.

Our colorimeter measured the MacBook Air as producing 71 percent of the sRGB spectrum, which is beneath the 100 percent category average and low for this price. The Swift 7 (105 percent), ZenBook UX330UA (106 percent) and 12-inch MacBook (117 percent) all rated higher.

The Air tries to make up for its color deficiency with brightness, emitting up to 336 nits. That's similar to the 340-nit 12-inch MacBook, and it outshines the 290-nit category average, the 319-nit Swift 7 and the 286-nit ZenBook UX330UA. Unfortunately, this brightness isn't enough to produce solid viewing angles, as I saw color darken at 45 degrees to the left and right.

MacBook Air 2017 keyboard and trackpad

The MacBook Air offers a pleasant typing experience, with keys that actually feel like they're moving -- something I'll never take for granted again. With it, I hit an average of 76 words per minute on the 10fastfingers.com typing test, which isn't too far from my 80-wpm average. That speed, and the comfort I experienced during the test, is enabled by the 1.4 millimeters of travel in the keys, which require 72 grams of force to actuate.

For comparison, I tried out the shallower, clickier keys on the 15-inch MacBook Pro (whose keys have 0.8 mm of travel and require 74 grams of actuation force). While I hit a relatively similar 74 wpm on that machine, my hands started to hurt during the test, which I attribute to how much less travel is in those keys. The 12-inch MacBook's similarly designed keys are even shallower, with 0.5 mm of travel.

The MacBook Air's 4.0 x 2.9-inch trackpad offers accurate tracking and a solid feel to each click. It's also arguably easier to use than those in Apple's 12-inch MacBook and MacBook Pros, as it actually moves. Here, dragging and dropping items -- something you need to relearn on the Force Touch trackpads that appear on more advanced MacBooks -- is a whole lot easier.

MacBook Air 2017 audio

Good sound never gets outdated, and the MacBook Air continues Apple's track record of laptops with sweet-sounding audio, blasting enough volume to fill our medium-size conference room. When listening to Rocky Romero's "RPG Vice" and Survive's "Sorcerer" on the notebook, I noted clear vocals, full bass and accurate synths.

MacBook Air 2017 performance

The MacBook Air's Intel Core i5-5350U CPU and 8GB of RAM enable smooth and speedy multitasking. For example, I saw no slowdown after I split my screen between a 1080p YouTube video and a dozen Safari tabs (including Slack, Google Docs and Giphy).

The MacBook Air notched a respectable score of 6,438 on the Geekbench 4 general performance test. That's close to the 6,565 category average, above the 5,519 from the Swift 7 (Core i5-7Y54, 8GB of RAM), and below the 7,182 from the ZenBook UX330UA (Core i5-7200U, 8GB of RAM) and the 6,853 from the 12-inch MacBook (Core M3-7Y32, 8GB of RAM).

The MacBook Air's 128GB PCIe solid-state drive copied a DVD's worth of files in just 24 seconds, for a rate of 212 MBps. That's similar to the 215-MBps category average and faster than the 116 MBps from the Swift 7 (256GB SSD) and the 159 MBps from the ZenBook UX330UA (256GB SSD). We recorded a much faster 467 MBps from the 12-inch MacBook (256GB SSD).

Macs aren't exactly seen as speedy gaming machines, and the Air doesn't buck that conventional wisdom. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 6000 chip in the Air ran the racing game Dirt 3 (set to medium graphics and 1920 x 1080 pixels) at 25 frames per second. We consider 30 fps playable.

MacBook Air 2017 battery life

Don't worry about lugging your power cable everywhere you go, because the MacBook Air's battery has your back. The MacBook Air lasted 10 hours and 26 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery Test (web browsing at 100 nits), which is similar to the 10:17 from the ZenBook UX330UA and longer than the 7:25 from the Swift 7 (7:25), the 9:29 recorded by the 12-inch MacBook and the 8:20 category average.

MacBook Air 2017 webcam

Integrated webcams often provide the bare minimum of quality and accuracy, but the 0.7-megapixel camera in the MacBook Air exceeded my expectations. It not only nailed the purple hue of my shirt but also accurately captured a tiny stretch detail above the D. Of course, it isn't perfect, as a block of my hair looks like a flat brown patch.

MacBook Air 2017 heat

The MacBook Air still does a good job of dispersing heat. After we streamed HD video on the notebook for 15 minutes, our heat gun captured temperatures on its touchpad (83.5 degrees Fahrenheit), G and H keys (92 degrees) and underside (94 degrees) that didn't breach our 95-degree comfort threshold.

MacBook Air 2017 software

Our MacBook Air came running macOS Sierra, which brought Siri to the Mac, and it took less than an hour for us to install the recently released High Sierra. Unlike most of the PC laptops we review, macOS features zero bloatware.

We've found High Sierra to be an excellent update, making slight, welcome improvements to important apps and keeping macOS just as usable and stable as ever.

MacBook Air 2017 configuration options

We tested the $999 entry-level MacBook Air, which packs an Intel Core i5-5350U processor, 8GB of RAM, a 128GB PCIe SSD and a 1440 x 900-pixel panel.

Doubling your storage (to 256GB) adds on $200 (for a total of $1,199), and moving it up to 512GB adds on $400 (for $1,399). Upgrading to a 2.2-GHz Core i7 CPU costs an extra $150.

Bottom line

The MacBook Air may be going gray (well, silver) as it ages, but we still love its long battery life, solid performance and safety-first MagSafe 2 power port. You also don't have to worry about schlepping any dongles to plug in peripherals. Two downsides, however, are that its display is stuck in the past decade, and it's up to a pound heavier than competitors.

Platform-agnostic users can save $300 with a similarly configured Asus ZenBook UX330UA, which boasts a brighter, more colorful panel. If you're partial to the Apple experience and want to keep the cost reasonable, you've got two options. If you plan to watch a lot of video and are constantly on the move, the 12-inch MacBook, which costs $300 more, will be best. Writers and other keyboard jockeys, though, will get the best experience on the 13-inch MacBook Air.
