i'm looking for a laptop for my daughter who's starting jr high this fall. i want to get her an apple product because it's safer online, easier for parents to monitor and don't come with windows bloatware. this MBA is going on 3 years old, i'm sure it's still way over the top spec-wise for a jr high kid, do you still think it's a good buy compare to the newest 13.6" MBA which is selling for $1000?
the MBA is an incredible product imo. It is still way ahead of the curve compared to previous Macs/Windows machines in terms of perf/battery life. Main problem with it for me is the lack of GPU power, but I don't know what the new MBA has for GPU prowess.

Depends on what she is going to use it for, but I have the M1 Air and I can't even begin to bog the machine down. It's just as fast and the day I bought it 2.5 years ago. It's so much faster than my 12th gen i7 work laptop, and much better battery life.

I don't do anything hardcore on it. No gaming, and the only video work I do is edit my 4k gopro footage.

As long as she doesn't need a beefy GPU, she should be more than fine.

Using mine right now. It's my normal home computer now - email, surfing, documents, etc. It works great and I think it's a steal. Great price point and performance to get into the Mac ecosystem.
