Maybe I'm in the minority, but I think that's a pretty nice-looking machine.

I would put up with the horrible notch for FaceID, but there is no FaceID.

Is it just me or does this new MacBook Air look thicker than the last one, it doesn’t look as sleek
I still feel that the "thinness" of the old one was an optical illusion. Evans Hankey even alluded to that in her recent interview about the new design. The "wedge" design is mostly outlined by that flat side of the machine, and the tapered end of the wedge IS really thin. The rest of the laptop really isn't as thin as the design makes it look though, and I have always felt that asymmetry in a laptop doesn't look right. (just my opinion)

Anyway, my point is that I think this new design just exposes a lot of the thickness that the old one already had but was cleverly hiding.

Silver is a still very meh color, but otherwise looks good.

I'm totally on the opposite side: I have never noticed it and still don't. It has no negative effect on anything I do no matter if it I'm in fullscreen mode or no. Remember: the notch makes the usable display are only bigger, not smaller.

Disclaimer: I use dark mode on my macOS with no transparency. That practically hides the notch.
