Unacceptable camera. Grainy zoom video.
I'm a fan of apple products and I like almost everything about this new MBA. But it has one huge flaw that nobody talks about. It's the camera hardware and it hasn't been updated in ages. My zoom calls are so grainy and bad even with decent light. A $1000 laptop with 10 year old front camera is unac...

The new MacBook Air with Apple’s M1 chip is a triumph.

Verdict
Otherwise there are no reasons for complaint at all in terms of the case, input devices, and speakers. In terms of its price, the entry level is particularly attractive, especially since there are always some good offers from vendors over the years.

Apple M1 MacBook Air - Long Term User Review
After six months of using this device, it's the best computer for a thousand dollars you can buy in terms of like a really complete portable package without any major compromises. Uh, unless you're choosing the base model and want some insane productivity multitasking. whereas the eight gigabyte ram versus 16 gigabytes there's a significant performance difference there

A USB C hub broke it
The M1 chip really is amazing. But it only lasted five days for me. Somehow mine managed to break after using a third party USB C hub. The screen wouldn’t turn on at all, and an Apple repair tech couldn’t figure it out after doing a few quick tests. Oh and then Apple said it would take a month to re...
