    Linus compares $300/$500 PC laptop's to a $750/($1000 MSRP 2017) Macbook Air...the good news Linus also brings in an AMD based Lenovo to the competition. :)

    The number one selling laptop on Amazon is currently the MacBook Air… from 2017. Guys, I know the logo is pretty, but please stop buying it.


    It looks like laptop buyers are listening, Amazon shows the Macbook Air has already dropped to the #2 spot. :)

    Update 2/11: The Macbook Air is down to the #4 spot.

    Whats funny is that he mentions that he'd likely still go for the MBA for his workflow, I'd probably go for it as well just because I like my laptop not to bend on itself when I'm using it. Also perks of Apple laptops, it's got TB for eGPU's, so in theory you could be having a "better" gaming experience than the other two mentioned laptops.
