    It teaches you quickly how to breath with ease using your Air. I have been a mac user for longer than I can remember and I learned some great new tips. This was a great, easy, and fast manual to get the air customized.

    As with most things Mac (and Apple), this book covers the basics and little more about the new M1 MacBook Air. Hence the title “MacBook Air Essentials.” A good addition would be more info on cables and chargers. Coming from an older MacBook Air, USB-C is brand new to me. What is the differences with USB-C for PD (power delivery) vs data transfer? Are certain cables better or necessary for high-speed transfers? Also, I’ve heard it’s best to format a Time Machine backup drive with APFS. What does Apple recommend for this brand new computer? I do wish Apple would have a “Deeper” section for those wanting answers to the more technical questions. But, this is what Apple does—it leaves figuring all this out to the user, while telling them “It just works."

    Thanks for this book, it was great. I found some things that were changed with update. I was changing from a 8 yr old MacBook Pro to a MacBook air 2020 and this book helped with new updates and changes in the MacBook Air. Well done! Easy to read and follow, Thanks
