MacBook Air buying guide: How to choose your storage, RAM, and more

These days, the MacBook Air can lay claim to being the best value-for-money laptop Apple has ever made. That is because it comes with Apple’s superb M1 chip, giving it virtually identical performance to the high-end MacBook Pro for under $1,000. It has come a huge distance in the past few years, when it often felt neglected and underpowered.

If you want to buy a MacBook Air, though, there are a few things you need to know first, particularly regarding the memory and GPU. We will cover these details and much more in this guide, giving you all the required knowledge to buy the perfect MacBook Air for your needs.

CPU and GPU options

MacBook Air M1

There are two main models of MacBook Air to choose from, and both are powered by the Apple M1 chip. Although the chips in each version bear the same name and share most of the same features, there is one slight variance between them: The number of GPU cores.

The entry-level MacBook Air’s chip has a seven-core GPU, while the high-end alternative comes with an eight-core GPU. This will make a difference — an extra core of computing power is always welcome — but it is important to remember that this is still an integrated GPU, so it will not be able to match the power of a dedicated gaming laptop. But then, if you are buying a MacBook Air, then gaming probably isn’t too important to you anyway.

If you don’t intend to run any games or graphics-intensive apps at all, pick the seven-core option. If you want to engage in some light gaming or video rendering, go for the eight-core model.

The second thing to note about the M1 chip is that it is so efficient that the MacBook Air is completely fanless. That means you get a totally silent laptop, something that cannot be said of the MacBook Pro (although it is still extremely quiet).

Is 256GB of storage space enough?

MacBook Air

Like the MacBook Pro, the MacBook Air has SSD options with up to 2TB of storage space. The entry-level model starts at 256GB and has 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB options, while the high-end model offers 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB configurations.

How much storage space will you need? Well, that depends on what you do. If you use your laptop simply for web browsing, sending emails, and a little light gaming, 256GB or 512GB will be plenty. If you instead focus on photo editing or video rendering, you will likely need more space — but if these are your key activities, you should be looking at the MacBook Pro instead anyway.

You can probably stick with 8GB of RAM

MacBook Air M1

The MacBook Air comes with two RAM options: 8GB or 16GB. You might be tempted to think 16GB is the safer option, but things are not quite as straightforward as they seem, and 8GB could be more than enough for you.

That is because Apple’s M1 chip uses a unified memory architecture (UMA). Because the CPU and GPU are so close together on the chip, the UMA means they can use the same memory pool. This, in turn, reduces bottlenecks and improves performance.

The result is that you need less memory than you would in a traditional laptop. After running a whole series of tests on the M1 MacBook Air, YouTube channel Max Tech revealed the 8GB MacBook Air had outperformed an Intel MacBook Pro with 16GB of RAM. That means an M1 MacBook Air with 8GB of memory is almost certainly enough for all but the most demanding of tasks.

Battery life and ports

MacBook Air 2020 ports

The MacBook Air is super thin and light, making it great for portability, and that is backed up by excellent battery life. Because the M1 chip is so efficient, it has a minimal impact on the device’s battery, meaning you will get many more hours out of it than the previous MacBook Air.

In our review of the M1 MacBook Air, it lasted 15.5 hours in our web browsing test and 18.5 hours in the video playback test. Compare that to the latest Intel MacBook Air from 2020, which only managed 9.5 and 10 hours in those tests, respectively. That is a massive difference.

What do you get in terms of ports and extras? Both models of the MacBook Air come with two Thunderbolt 3 ports that are compatible with USB 4, and both have a Touch ID button for verifying purchases and logging you in. Neither version comes with the Touch Bar, though.

Which MacBook Air should you buy?

MacBook Air M1

If you have modest storage needs, the entry-level MacBook Air is a great option. It offers incredible performance (especially considering its $999 price), is completely silent, and has all the bells and whistles Apple is known for, like the excellent Magic Trackpad and a beautiful screen.

The high-end MacBook Air is mainly worth considering for its extra baseline storage and GPU core, although as we noted, it is still not a gaming machine.

Don’t bother upgrading to 16GB of RAM. Thanks to the UMA, the 8GB MacBook Air performs as well as (if not better than) an Intel MacBook Air with 16GB of memory, and it should be more than enough for most people’s needs. If you have more demanding requirements and want to upgrade to 16GB, you should start looking at the MacBook Pro, as its built-in fan will help it perform even better than the MacBook Air.

Tutorial Upgrade RAM Memory \u0026 SSD MacBook Pro JADUL‼️

Opinion: Is the base MacBook Air M1/8GB powerful enough for you?

Last year I picked up a very expensive computer — a top of the line 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro upgraded to an i9, 1TB of storage, and 16GB of RAM. But I just couldn’t wait to see how these M1 chips actually perform, so I decided to pick up the base $999 MacBook Air to see how it would hold up side-by-side with my 16-inch behemoth. The results are incredible.

When these computers launched — and early reviews confirmed their performance blew everything else out of the water — I faced a bit of a predicament. Like many others, I’m coming from a 16-inch MacBook Pro, so there’s no obvious upgrade path. For now, Apple Silicon is only available in 13-inch models.

But I couldn’t help myself — I had to check these out at least, and if I’m not buying an outright replacement for my daily machine (yet), it just made the most sense to go with the cheapest notebook model. If nothing else, I’d get an idea of what Apple’s entry-level laptops are like and I could write this article.

I almost didn’t do it; if you’re anything like me you probably can’t help but cringe at the idea of spending over a thousand dollars on a computer with just 8GB of RAM. But I’m here to report that not only does this machine more stuff at once better than my 16-inch i9 MacBook Pro for normal everyday use, it’s significantly better. Everything makes it obvious that Apple spent serious time optimizing every corner of Big Sur for Apple Silicon — and perhaps equally so put its Intel machines on the back burner.

While everyone else out there has done a great job of trying to quantify the performance boost with benchmarks — which do indeed confirm that the M1 outperforms the top-end MacBook Pro Intel chips — I wanted to try and provide a more subjective experience to answer one burning question that many people have: Under what circumstances is the base-level $999 MacBook Air with the M1 and 8GB RAM powerful enough?

I was skeptical going in, because it’s been readily apparent for years that 8GB of RAM on an Intel MacBook is not enough for me. My typical workload tends to involve juggling maybe half a dozen different apps open at the same time (Slack, Messages, 1Password, Notes, Safari/Chrome, and some others here or there), a dozen or more browser tabs, and some light podcast editing or the like. That load demands at least 16GB of RAM on an Intel MacBook in my experience. Not so on Apple Silicon.

So far, I’ve been able to push the laptop to the absolute limits of my normal workload and not see a single sign of sluggishness. I’m being actively “reckless” with managing my apps and leaving several things open that don’t need to be open. I’m able to keep as many Safari tabs open as I like. Seriously, unless you are actively working with files that are over 8GB in size (for video editing or the like), I just can’t imagine that most people can push this laptop hard enough to even slow it down.

In one experiment I did yesterday, I tried to push it to the absolute limits to see at what point it would slow down. So I opened up 12 apps at once. No sign of slowing down. Added 2 x86 apps emulated with Rosetta 2. No sign of slowing. Added an app running full screen to see if it would drop frames switching between screens. Nope. Added a Safari window with 24 tabs. Nothing. So I added six Safari windows, each playing videos at 2160p, Spotify in the background, and tried to take a screenshot. Only then did the computer finally grind a halt. I was greeted with the familiar rainbow spinning wheel of death.

Incredibly, even pushing the machine to this extreme, I was still able to recover normal lag-free usage. All I had to do was (very slowly because the machine was barely operational), close each YouTube 4K video playing one at a time. With each one closed the base MacBook Air came slightly back to life, and with the last, it was back to performing as normal, even with the rest of the things still open.

Someone else asked how the computer would do with an external display attached. Again, I tried to push it to the limit and see what it could handle, but didn’t even bother going beyond having 13 apps open and running in the dock with 7 full screen YouTube videos playing at full resolution. As you can see, I was able still to flick between the full screen videos on my external monitor without the computer dropping hardly any frames.

As for the GPU, I didn’t really get into gaming — I don’t play games on my MacBook, and I doubt you do either — but I can say that this machine has 7 cores instead of 8 probably just… doesn’t matter? If playing 7 full screen YouTube videos at the same time and the machine not dropping frames is any indication, it’s going to be just fine for most people.

Of course, none of this is scientific. It’s still to be seen how things will hold up as I use the computer more and there are more background processes that creep their way in and I further diversify the apps I’m using. But it’s also notable that plenty of apps — like Slack, for example — are currently emulated Electron windows that will probably get better, not worse. Another critical point: Chrome is the most popular web browser, and I haven’t tested out how far the base MacBook Air can go there, yet. (When I was doing this testing, the ARM version wasn’t out yet — watch for more thoughts on that on 9to5Google when it’s available).

Why is the computer able to handle all this with such a low-energy-consumption processor and only 8GB of RAM? I’m still not crystal clear on the technical details, but it seems like some combination of low-level operations being massively improved in terms of efficiency, a new paradigm of “unified memory” and seemingly super-fast memory swap that makes it not even noticeable (actual memory used in Activity Monitor, even under the highest of loads described above, never even hit the full 8GB), and some other things. All of these things are made possible by the hardware and software being made to work together, pulling some of the same types of benefits that allow iPhones to outperform similar-pedigree Android phones with only a fraction of the RAM.

To put the cherry on top of this subjective analysis, I can also note that two other subjective things — heat and noise — when doing all of this stress testing is completely different from the experience of using an i9 16-inch MacBook Pro. Whereas that machine would be spinning a fan at full speed, loud enough to be heard across the room, this one didn’t even get noticeably warm. And obviously, the base MacBook Air with Apple’s M1 chip doesn’t even have a physical fan.

The cherry on top of the cherry is that, as all the reviews have noted, the battery life on this machine is stupid good. I’m sitting here typing this, more than halfway through my workday, with more than 60% battery remaining. As I mentioned, I’m not exactly going easy on it.

So is the base MacBook Air powerful enough?

I think the clear answer is that, for the vast majority of people, even for those who lean on the “professional” side of laptop multitasking with several apps and a dozen browser tabs and multiple types of media playing at the same time, the base models of these computers with 8GB of RAM are going to be enough. Not only are they enough — it’s seriously difficult to get them to slow down. Maybe if you’re heavy into Adobe suite multitasking you’ll find yourself in an in between that might have you leaning toward future-proofing your device, but even then the coming ARM versions of those apps should fly on these machines.

I have not tested doing intensive video editing in Final Cut Pro nor have I tried out making music in GarageBand or using this thing to run a live DJ setup — that’s not the point. The point is that for most people, a MacBook Air is about web browsing and light work and such. The base model MacBook Air is powerful enough that — as surprising as this may sound — the extra $200 to upgrade to 16GB of RAM is probably not worth it for most.

4GB to 16GB RAM Upgrade (MacBook Air 13-inch)

MacBook Air

8-core CPU Devours tasks. Sips battery.

M1 has the fastest CPU we’ve ever made. With that kind of processing speed, MacBook Air can take on new extraordinarily intensive tasks like professional-quality editing and action-packed gaming. But the 8‑core CPU on M1 isn‘t just up to 3.5x faster than the previous generation — it balances high-performance cores with efficiency cores that can still crush everyday jobs while using just a tenth of the power.

CPU

8-core CPU The 8-core CPU in M1 is the highest-performing CPU we’ve ever built, by far. It combines four performance cores and four efficiency cores that work together to tackle demanding multithreaded tasks, resulting in a quantum leap in performance at a fraction of the power — and a significant boost to battery life.

Four performance cores Our high-performance core is the world‘s fastest CPU core when it comes to low-power silicon — and M1 has four of them combining their efforts for a massive boost in performance. Compile in Xcode in significantly less time. Record, mix, and master professional-quality music in Logic Pro with scores of tracks, plug‑ins, and virtual instruments. And create stunning images in Adobe Lightroom with unprecedented speed and responsiveness.

Four efficiency cores Four efficiency cores deliver outstanding performance for everyday tasks using just a tenth of the power. These e‑cores are the most efficient place to run lightweight tasks, allowing the performance cores to tackle the most demanding workloads.

Just Air.

Thermal efficiency

With the industry-leading efficiency of the M1 chip, MacBook Air delivers amazing performance without a fan. Now an aluminum heat spreader dissipates the heat the system generates, so no matter how intense the task, MacBook Air runs completely silently.

Up to 9x faster. Even for a 16‑core Neural Engine, that’s a lot to process. Apps on MacBook Air can use machine learning (ML) to automatically retouch photos like a pro, make smart tools such as magic wands and audio filters more accurate at auto‑detection, and so much more. That’s not just brain power — that’s the power of a full stack of ML technologies.

Machine learning

The magic of machine learning The machine learning technologies in the M1 chip open up a world of possibilities for Mac apps. Machine learning lets apps build and apply models based on massive amounts of data — to do things like identify friends and family in photos and videos, interpret natural language for dictation, and even analyze audio to recognize laughter, applause, and more. And that data is processed on device to protect your privacy — all at lightning speed.

Neural Engine The dedicated 16‑core Neural Engine in the M1 chip can execute up to a staggering 11 trillion operations per second, powering workflows you couldn’t imagine before — like enabling the djay Pro AI app to isolate instrumentals and vocals of any song in real time.

Optimized for machine learning The entire M1 chip is engineered for machine learning. The CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine are each designed for different types of machine learning workloads — and the ML performance controller distributes ML tasks to the right places to maximize performance.

ML accelerators The two dedicated ML accelerators are built for fast matrix multiplication, executing up to one trillion operations per second — perfect for low-latency ML tasks that don’t require the massive power of the Neural Engine.

The power of macOS Big Sur on M1.

Developed to unlock the potential of the M1 chip, macOS Big Sur transforms Mac with major performance benefits and so much more. Powerful updates for apps. A beautiful new design. Industry-leading privacy features and best‑in‑class security. It‘s our most powerful software ever — running on our most advanced hardware yet.

More power. Wakes instantly.

The do‑it‑all notebook gets do‑the‑unbelievable memory. The M1 chip brings up to 16GB of superfast unified memory. This single pool of high‑bandwidth, low‑latency memory allows apps to share data between the CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine efficiently — so everything you do is fast and fluid.

Security

The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur give MacBook Air advanced security and privacy features beyond anything in its class, helping to keep your system and your data protected.

Secure Enclave coprocessor Provides a silicon-level foundation for critical security features like Touch ID and Apple Pay — and with M1, it’s faster than ever.

Dedicated AES storage encryption engine Keeps encryption keys safe while delivering incredible performance for encrypted storage and data protection.

Secure boot and runtime security features Ensures that only trusted Apple software loads at startup and helps protect macOS while running.

Activation Lock Helps keep your Mac secure if it‘s ever lost, stolen, or misplaced, and can improve your chances of recovering it.
