MacBook vs. MacBook Air: What's the difference?

The new Macbook isn’t just a prettier, updated version of the MacBook Air. Some features and specs got massive updates, while other features (like ports, for one), were sacrificed in the making.

If you’re considering a new Macbook and finding yourself comparing the two options, look out for these major differences.

 

Where are the ports?

Outside of the 3.5mm headphone jack, the USB Type-C port is the only port you’ll find on the MacBook. Through this single interface you charge, sync and connect accessories to the MacBook.

 

Meaning, if you want to connect the MacBook to an external monitor and an iPhone at the same time, for example, you’ll need a $79 adapter from Apple. (There are some third-party USB Type-C adapters for the MacBook that are cheaper, but reviews are mixed so proceed with caution should you decide to go that route.)

 

The MacBook Air is much more generous. It’s equipped with two USB ports, a Thunderbolt port and a MagSafe 2 port for charging. With all those options, you can sync a camera, charge your iPhone, and use an external monitor — with ports to spare.
