2019 MacBook Air UNBOXING and Setup!

by birtanpublished on August 25, 2020

What's going on guys Carl here back with another episode and you can see we have a brand new Apple stuff in the studio we finally have the Refresh of the 2019 MacBook Air and my 2018 model which you see off beside me was actually my favorite update of Apple's Mac books

Last year and also strangely with this refresh we saw the death of the classic MacBook and that's a total change up from Apple I thought the MacBook Air was gonna die last year they upgraded it with of

Course the Retina display they made it even better and now they are updating it to the 2019 model crazy that a year has gone by let's do a quick unboxing setup and maybe compare the two briefly and I'll let you know what I think so the

13-inch it now comes in at 1099 and that's the cheapest math book that you can currently get it's also technically the only macbook that you can now get in this gold color as the MacBook Pros only come in in silver and Space Gray

Naturally I had to get it in this unique colorway that off to the side we've got the MacBook Air right on top a very classic Apple unboxing not too much has changed designed by Apple in California do we get the gold Apple stickers yes

Yes we do along with the user manuals of warranty info that's the only reason why you're getting a gold MacBook to be honest charging brick and of course that charges via USB C so we'll get this plastic right off oh and I always forget

How good the gold MacBook stuff look let us get this guy powered on and once we remove this there should be a little sensor of course there is you can see that this guy starts booting up right out of the box so while we're setting

This guy up you can see one of the biggest changes the display of course it's a Retina display now has true tone so depending on the type of light you're getting say you're in the middle of the night say it's super dark and the light

Will adjust makes it a bit easier on the eyes let's get the check marks one two MacBook Air fully set up literally took two minutes so other than true tone the main changes of course

Are the chipsets inside we now have the 8th gen dual-core processors and this is something that I still think Apple needs to shift away from please we at least need a quad core we're in 2019 Apple you can't be running a dual-core setup I

Think that's almost a bit preposterous this guy comes in at 1099 and I think for most students that's around the price point you're looking for around these thousand dollar mark the only one recommendation I would make is upgrade

The RAM it comes stock with 8 to 16 gigs you can get away with the 256 gigs SSD I know it's tiny I know it's small but you can get third-party options for weight cheaper than what Apple is charging if you do happen to have some extra cookies

In that cookie jar I would spend them on of course getting that hard drive to be a bit larger I think 512 should be the bare minimum and I actually edited this very video on this guy and I will say that you can get by I'm editing a 4k

File right now it can handle the 4k footage it's just when you start to export files their rendering times are just so long on either of the MacBook Airs that's when you really start to need that dedicated graphics card you

Hear the fans ramped up the thing starts to throttle and the machine is kind of put to its absolute max wouldn't recommend it on my end but as I said you can get by just fine the main benefit obviously when the air is the light

Weight miss and of course the design it's of course Apple's lightest laptop and like I said my favorite one from last year was the 2080 model I carry this guy literally every day I do have an office job so this is what I use

Whether I am doing powerpoints I have edited photos on this I do have Photoshop performs great I love the fact that it's such a small form factor it doesn't weigh too much you do have of course two USB ports on the side with

The one three-and-a-half millimeter headphone jack on the other those are your only ports keyboard and trackpad layout remains pretty much identical we still don't have the light-up touch bar but honestly I don't really

Use mine over on my macbook pro we have the t2 chip so you can still log in using touch ID same great and large trackpad which I think is industry-standard still very small speakers but very capable for a device

This small it has some of the best sound output for a laptop and overall if you're looking for a laptop especially you students have beared going back to school you don't need Final Cut Pro you do not

Need to edit read footage we're processing writing those essays at 3:00 4:00 a.m. browsing the net watching Netflix all that jazz this machine is more than enough even with the dual core still would love to

See a quad-core one day but that of course are the limitations that we got to deal with this year-round let me know your thoughts though down below in the comments I'll be brand new 2019 macbook air hope you guys enjoyed my quick

Little review and let me know what else you want to see covered down below in the comments we'll catch the rest of you in one of my next episodes or of course vlogs base
