The YouTuber pointed out that Apple had responded to many of their fans’ biggest complaints around the Macbook Air, such as reverting keyboard switches and making improvements to the laptop’s speakers.

However, despite some of the much-needed improvements, he revealed that he was surprised so little was done to improve the quality of the Macbook’s built-in webcam.

“Still a pretty garbage quality 720p, not even 1080p, webcam, this is what this looks like,” he expressed, switching his recording to the Macbook’s camera to show his viewers.

“It’s still kind of impressive how bad the webcams still look in these Macbooks,” Marques added, calling Apple out on the low image quality of the built-in camera.

Despite his issues with the webcam, the tech reviewer was ultimately impressed by many of the improvements that were made to the 2020 Macbook Air and its hardware.

The YouTuber later revealed that even he would consider switching it to be his daily laptop and explained that it was likely to continue to be Apple’s most popular computer from here on out. The Air has often been favored by students, helping boost its sales and enjoy a reputation as the go-to laptop if you’re heading to college.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
