Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
29.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 13.6 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 71 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
42.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21.2 ms rise
↘ 21.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 58 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (39.3 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 111100 Hz ≤ 66 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 111100 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 66 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 111100 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 50 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18215 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Verdict – MacBook Air appears outdated

In review: Apple MacBook Air 2019. Test model courtesy of Notebooksbilliger.
In review: Apple MacBook Air 2019. Test model courtesy of Notebooksbilliger.

2019年版MacBook Air的改进不多。屏幕现在有更高的亮度,增加的True Tone无疑是一个好处。一般而言,显示器没有太多弱点可以批评,但是由于色域更广,MacBook Pro的面板明显更好。

最大的问题仍然是处理器速度较慢,加上烦人的风扇(负载下)。性能不止只是跟不上竞争对手,在运行要求更高的应用程序或多任务处理时,您也不应期望会受到限制。对于简单的东西,例如写邮件,Skype,普通的网络浏览或播放高分辨率视频,这没有问题。

MacBook Air的2018年型号在开始时并不是很有创新性,并且在某些方面似乎已经过时了。单独来讲,MacBook Air当然是不错的超极本,但是苹果自己的MacBook Pro 13是价格相近的更好的替代品。

入门级MacBook Pro 13即将面世,将会是MacBook Air的非常强大的竞争对手。机身只是稍厚一点,但是您几乎不会注意到实际的区别。作为回报,您会以略高的价格获得更多的性能(因此,在未来几年中将获得更好的体验)。
