Powerful computer used by lot of musicians for music production, mixing & mastering. Apple's MacBook comes with softwares like GarageBand & Logic Pro which allows everyone, from a rookie to a pro to mix & produce music studio-like professionally.
... but there could be more power inside and the laptop will get hot really fast if you're running e.g. Ableton, Maschine and some VST's - My recommendation: Buy a Macbook Pro Retina 13" :)
I use this laptop for all my producing. I do have an application on it so I can run windows on it and it still copes very well. Battery hold is AMAZING and you can see the screen even in bright sunlight.
It is thin, light & powerful as said by every MacBook user in the world. It gives crazy battery backup, I've used this at live gigs. On 70% charge, I used Logic Pro & MainStage for 5-6hours continuous with my WiFi on, surprisingly battery dropped down only to 20%. No other laptop gives such a crazy battery backup. It has allowed me to produce music professionally at my home by simply connecting my instruments through MIDI.
This Laptop Is Extremely New To Me. Got It A Few Days Ago Through School. 8GB RAM, But Sadly, Only 120GB Of Storage. So For A Person Who Is Making Videos, Recording And Mixing 30+ Tracks On Songs, Listening To Music, Writing Essays, And Much More The Amount Of Storage Is Less Than Ideal. However 8GB RAM Is A Nice Upgrade From My Pro Which Had 4. Compared To The Pros It Feels Very Light, Which To Me Wasn't Such Huge Deal. The Weight Of The Pros Was Fine For Me. It Wasn't A Big Deal. Due To It's Weight It Feels A Bit Cheaper, But Maybe That's Just Because I Came From A Macbook Pro. I Also Noticed That The Actual Screen Is Smaller On The Air 13 Inch In Comparison. The Maybe Took An Inch Off On Every Side Of The Screen, Not Sure Why, Maybe To Make More Money, And Though I Doubt There's A Reason Better Than "It Saves Us Money Which Means More Profit" That Doesn't Mean It's Not Possible There's Some Legitimacy Behind All Of This. But I Can't Do A Super In Depth Review Of This, I've Only Had It For A Few Days. Maybe I'll Review Again Once I Have More Experience With It.
Picked this up at the Apple store for $1200, and it works wonders for making beats with things like Garageband pre-installed, and getting Ableton Live and Adobe Audition on it is a breeze. Runs my entire studio. Everything I do is done on this thing. No spinning hard drive, fan-less, dead silent, LONG-ass battery life, light and perfectly portable. I take this thing everywhere.
