How long do MacBook Airs last? Can a MacBook Air last 10 years?
In general, a MacBook Air (or any other laptop, for that matter) is going to have a useful life of about 3 to 5 years. After about 3 years, you may notice things seem slower on your computer than it does on newer computers. It would likely receive macOS updates until 2028. The OS released in 2028 would receive support from Apple until 2031, and most third-party tools would work until at least 2033. This means that in general, you can expect about 10 years of life from a Mac, barring any unforeseen hardware issues.

Should I upgrade my Mac or buy a new one?
In most cases it makes more sense to buy a new Mac instead of upgrading your current one. Over the long run you will be using a fast, modern Mac most of the time and be able to use the latest macOS and software.

Can you put an SSD in a MacBook Air?
This is patently false, I have upgraded multiple macbooks successfully, without a lot of difficulty. You just needed the right tools. The new macbooks have everything soldered to the motherboard, so you cannot with newer models.

Is MacBook Air a notebook or laptop?
Macbooks are considered notebooks. They’re called Macbooks because they use OSX as their OS whereas other notebooks use Windows as the primary OS

Is MacBook Air or Pro better?
The M1 MacBook Air is the best option for price and portability, the M1 MacBook Pro for the combination of battery and power. The 2.0GHz MacBook Pro is just so expensive now you can get a decent machine for a lot less. The 16in MacBook Pro is still the ultimate MacBook Pro, for now.

Which brand of laptop is most reliable?
If there’s one thing that nearly everyone agrees on, it’s that Apple laptops are reliable and predictably high-quality. When you buy a MacBook, you know what to expect. You’ll get a fantastic screen, solid battery life, and a beautiful chassis with thin bezels. They do tend to be a little more expensive than their Windows counterparts, and sometimes the hardware doesn’t always quite measure up, but when it comes to style, ease of use, and reliability, Apple laptops are top-notch.
