Living & Working With the Latest Apple MacBook Air

I have had the MacBook Air for a little over three months now and wanted to make a bite size video about how it stacks up against my dedicated editing (Windows) laptop in both day to day tasks, as well as more complex Photoshop and Premiere work.

Check out my Showreel in which this Laptop played a big part:

Thank you for watching.

    Hi, Thanks, it's really a helpful video. Actually, I am planning to get a MacBook Air 13inch 2017 model with 256gb. Basically, I will be using it for video editing, including full HD videos and occasionally 4K videos. Movie duration can last up to 1hr 30 minutes. Could you please suggest here, while the 2017 MacBook Air is a good choice for me.,Thanks for the help.

    The Mac book air is an amazing computer , I own the 2015 model. The display is really showing its age though compared to the new MacBook.

    Your productivity is exactly what I want to be able to do on a MacBook, and Pro is not suitable for my back problems but my friends have been convincing me to get a Pro for the video editing. Seeing this & the videos in your channel convinced me otherwise – I'm getting an Air soon. Thanks for the video!‬

    For editing 720p videos with cuts, music, pictures and words in it, would this MacBook Air handle it easily or will it struggle a bit? Will 8gb and a i5 render and edit the videos flawless?

    Should I purchase MacBook Air or pro? I am a financial professional. Looking at current official prices what do you suggest? In September prices of current macs will fall after new releases.

    i am crossing between macbook air and thinkpad 13 i3-7100u. many say that thinkpad 13 has poor ips display and its cpu doesn't differ much from macbook air's i5-5250u.
    can anyone help me for what to buy as mostly as a writer, while also sometimes doing photoshop/video editing(nothing intense; just school videos and adding themes)
    (… also I'm short on money. air is $750 and thinkpad i3 7100u with ips is $800.)
