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
26.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14.9 ms rise
↘ 11.2 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. » 52 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
31 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 17 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.7 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 118000 Hz ≤ 49 % brightness setting
≤ 155 cd/m² brightness

The display backlight flickers at 118000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 49 % (155 cd/m²) and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 118000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

Flickering occurs even at high brightness setting and may have an effect on the user during everyday use.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9725 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

MacBook Air M1 - En framgångsrik debut för Apples chip
MacBook Air M1 - En framgångsrik debut för Apples chip

Läs den fullständiga versionen av den här recensionen på engelska här.

Den nya M1-processorn, baserad på ARM-arkitekturen, gör en imponerande debut i MacBook Air. I fråga om ren teoretisk prestanda hamnar den före jämförbara processorer från Intel och AMD, både i fråga om CPU- och GPU-prestanda. Och detta är instegsversionen av Air. Den passiva kylningen påverkar knappt prestandan överhuvudtaget; grafikprestandan sjunker inte med tiden och endast vid krävande uppgifter kan processorn tappa i prestanda efter några minuter. Men en skillnad på 11% är också inom rimliga gränser. Vidare kan vi försäkra att det inte är någon fara med yttemperaturerna även om det blir väldigt varmt på insidan, vilket är typiskt för Apple. En stor fördel med att den saknar fläkt är att den inte låter något alls, vilket är perfekt för tysta miljöer. Nya Apple M1 har också en positiv inverkan på batteritiden. Med sina energibesparande kärnor kan den spara mycket energi i vårt WLAN-batteritest och står sig en hel arbetsdag med maximal skärmljusstyrka.

Men bytet till Apples egna chip kommer inte bara med fördelar. Många äldre program måste köras genom Rosetta 2-emuleringen och tappar därmed betydligt i prestanda. Emuleringen är dock tillräckligt snabb för att ibland ge oss bättre resultat än vi fick med den gamla instegsprocessorn från Intel. Däremot fungerar inte allt perfekt ännu. Från ryckiga gränssnitt till längre laddningstider och till och med program som kraschar: det finns många problem att lösa. Så du får hoppas på nyskrivna versioner av programmen gjorda för den här hårdvaran alternativt på uppdateringar från Apple. Man bör kolla upp i förväg om program man använder kan råka ut för problem och ifall det i så fall finns alternativ. Begränsningar i programutbudet balanseras däremot av ett flertal nya iOS-appar som går att köra utan problem tack vare ARM-chippet.      

Apples nya processorer firar en framgångsrik debut i MacBook Air. Allt eftersom mjukvaran mognar kommer nog ingen i framtiden sakna Intel-chip i sin Mac. 

Höljet och skärmen är i princip oförändrade. Vi hade åtminstone gärna sett en tryckkänslig skärm - särskilt med tanke på iOS-kompatibiliteten, och smalare skärminfattning. I övrigt finns det ingen anledning att klaga på höljet, inmatningsenheterna eller högtalarna.

I fråga om pris är instegsnivån särskilt intressant, detta eftersom det alltid brukar finnas bra erbjudanden från olika tillverkare där. Den extra kostnaden för en åttakärnig GPU och 16 GB RAM är inte direkt prisvärda och prispåslaget för ytterligare lagring är väldigt högt. Att betala extra för en MacBook Pro 13 med aktiv kylning är också bara värt det för ett fåtal användare. Aktiv kylning, ett större batteri, en lite mer ljusstark skärm och en Touchbar är egentligen bara viktigt för en liten mängd människor. Mer avancerade användare borde dessutom vänta på M1X i de mer kraftfulla modellerna, där man också kan hoppas på fler än 2 TB3-portar.

Nya MacBook Air med ett M1-chip går redan att få tag på för runt 11.000 kronor från Amazon (gratis frakt) eller från andra ställen.
