The M1 MacBook Air is over three years old now, and that’s evident from its design. But look past the machine’s dated looks, and the M1 chip‘s performance will impress you.

The machine can easily handle browsing sessions, note-taking, and light photo and video editing work. And the M1 Air will do this while easily lasting through a full day of use.

While reviewing the M1 MacBook Air for Cult of Mac, our editor, Leander Kahney, opened 650 Safari tabs. He would have opened more but got bored. And that was with several tasks running in the background, including downloading Photo and Office 365. This should give you an idea of the M1 MacBook Air’s incredible performance.
