    Has anyone recently purchased the 2018 MBA? If so, have you tried using it outdoors?

    I'm thinking of purchasing the 2018 MBA but I'm worried that I'll be squinting when using it outdoors (campus library sockets are usually filled. I do most of my in-campus typing either within College halls or outdoors).

    Has the 2018 MBA's relatively low nits bothered you when using it outdoors or in a well-lit cafe?

    Edit: Social science graduate student here, so intense multimedia editing isn't my bread and butter.

    I have one. It can be a bit difficult if you're going to use most of the time outdoors. It's more than useable for short bursts (probably an hour at a time) but if you plan to use it outdoors every day for at least 2 hours straight, then you'll be better off with the Pro.
