Macs 5-year-old convertible has arrived, and it’s a big one.
The Macbook Air has a 5-inch screen, a 5K display, and a 10-inch display.
The 5K monitor is the only thing Apple calls “Ultra Retina,” and it looks awesome.
It has a resolution of 1920×1080, which is incredible for an entry-level machine, and that’s a lot of pixels.
display is pretty much the same as the Macbook Pro, but it’s much larger, and Apple is touting it as “a 5K screen with 60Hz refresh rate.”
You can also connect it to an external monitor using Thunderbolt 3, and the company says it supports 1080p video playback.
Apple says it can produce a “substantial amount of light” with its display, but we have to say we’re skeptical.
It can’t even be used in a bedroom or office, which makes it the least useful display we’ve ever tested.
Still, this is Apple’s newest and most powerful notebook, and if you need to use a big screen to work, it’s definitely worth the money.
The only thing that Apple calls Ultra Retina is the Apple logo on the screen, and in that case, you’re probably better off sticking with Apple’s $1,500 screen.
We recommend you buy the Mac Pro instead, which offers the same display and is slightly larger.
