The Apple MacBook Air MMGG2LL/A is a bestselling 13.3-inch laptop that has been praised for its long battery life, good speakers, thin and light design and for its super fast solid state drive. However, the hardware is slightly less powerful than some of the competing Windows Ultrabooks and it does not offer users a Full-HD display. While many Ultrabooks offer good battery life, the MacBook Air MMGG2LL/A offers an excellent battery run time of over 14 hours due to the ultra-low voltage hardware that has been used by Apple. While it will feel a bit sluggish with intensive multitasking, the MacBook Air MMGG2LL/A is still a good alternative to the new MacBook and MacBook Pro and their ultra-limited ports.

Bottom Line

The Apple MacBook Air MMGG2LL/A is a light and compact Ultrabook for those looking for great battery life and Apple’s legendary ecosystem. However, the last update to the Air range was in 2015 and its competitors have already moved on with the latest hardware.

    While still a great all-around useful laptop, the 13-inch MacBook Air is stuck with a lower-res display and a design that's no longer cutting-edge.
