Should I buy a MacBook Air or Mac Mini?

Episode 1531 (1:01:45)

Matt from Florida
Apple MacBook Air

Matt is thinking of getting a MacBook Air with an i7 or a Mac Mini. But he's been holding off because he keeps hearing rumors of new models. Leo says that the problem with those two devices is that they haven't been updated since 2015, so buying one will get him an antiquated processor. The screen is also low resolution by comparison to today's standards. Leo also says that the rumor of a Mac Mini is extremely unlikely. There's no real data to support it. In fact, since Apple is more focused on mobile devices, it's more likely that Apple will discontinue it entirely sooner or later. The same is likely true for the MacBook Air. The latest MacBook Pro is very similar to it.
