Needless to couplet MacBook Air 13" 2019 student?

I plan to buy a minimum configuration: 8/128
The budget is limited. Task: to write a lot of text, watch movies, sometimes play online games in the type of Tanks Online may download 3-4 films a journey.

• will there be enough memory for the above tasks?

• whether Mac all also work well after 3-4 years?

• should you pay for a year/two guarantees? (Free only for 3 months. But I heard that due to problems with the butterfly is a 4-year warranty repair keyboard. I don't know whether the acts in Ukraine)

The Makos never used, but feedback is the most simple and convenient interface. Unparalleled in quality, weight, size and time of Autonomous work is not found.

Memory is enough, but it depends. Operational (which is 8GB) is for tasks you described, but the disk size at 128GB may not be enough and will have to save (do not store movies on the laptop and stored on an external usb drive). In 3-4 years MacBook battery will lose capacity and will hold 10-12 hours of battery life (2-3 hours or less), but it can be replaced in any service for the right price. The warranty on a MacBook air usually 1 year from the date of purchase and in the course of this year you can pay for extra two years warranty (as in Russia). To pay extra is to avoid problems with the keyboard for 3 years (about 4 years have not heard) or wait another half year and in the summer (in June) will update the MacBook and remove the butterfly.
Memory is partially solved by icloud.

With the rest agree.
But perhaps we should look at the macbook pro, as it is not much more, but he is much more powerful. - addie_Roh commented on April 7th 20 at 15:50
I'm afraid to Jun without a computer couldn't do) And with the disadvantages of air can be tolerated, the price of external hard drive and battery replacement are acceptable - Graciel commented on April 7th 20 at 15:53

The Macbook Air will suffice you with a head for such tasks. In fact the memory will be available to you in the order somewhere 90Gb, can dozens of movies to download without problems, it is unlikely you will be to download 4K (because it makes no sense), and FHD good quality 4-8Gb is usually, although such a screen 720p is enough IMHO!
will the Mac all also work well after 3-4 years?

Yes, no problem. Still, demand for MacBook 10 years ago. They work fine so far...
is it worth to pay for a year/two guarantees?

Just reading the reviews in advance about the store. This guarantee from the shop, and how they perform their warranty conditions - you need to only know in the reviews! Apparently you do not want to buy the official MacBook (sold to Moyo, Eldorado, citrus, etc.), so the Apple warranty will not act in Ukraine in the official service , in the event of a breakdown the nearest official service which will take to repair your MacBook in under warranty for free Poland or better in Germany. Well, there are services which, for a fee (150$) carry your MacBook in Europe for repair and back. On Macbook Air 2019 is valid extended warranty on the keyboard but it is only in the Apple services, your store can simply refuse to repair at the expiration of the term granatino from them (3 months). Because compare price with extended warranty with official price in the Moyo/Citrus, now there promotions and most likely more profitable to take the official.
You are right, Apple rum (if I'm not mistaken, the official representative of Apple in Ukraine) was the same price as Moyo with a one year warranty. That's only in the Apple room free guarantee - a month, for a longer period need to pay. But is it worth it? Besides, an extended warranty on the keyboard did not seem to depend on the kind of guarantees: free-for a month or paid for one year (correct if wrong) - Graciel commented on April 7th 20 at 15:54
@ted74, Apple rum - not any official representative. About the warranty I described. In Ukraine, one official distributor ASBIS and service center and he undertakes to repair the equipment which he is not made (open if no warranty card ASBIS). In the case of keyboards - you free no it is not repaired in Ukraine, only in Europe to carry (if you buy in stores such as EPL rum, because they buy them from distributors who imported the technique of smuggling, sometimes even repairing in the basement before the sale, I am the MacBook pokupaem in a similar store in extended warranty who died on the 4th day and I refused to repair because the found traces of opening and soldering on the Board). Although when I printed it at the shop, he was in the film) I Bought in mycloudstore. Of course I didn't understand and obviously what I be sold, the courts and so forth have not helped, even in Europe refused to repair because traces of soldering. - Princess_Conroy commented on April 7th 20 at 15:57
@Guadalupe, thank you for the information. Went to the site of ASBIS, information that Moyo and Foxtrot are the official Resellers. Does this mean that it's formal and you can count on a guarantee? - Graciel commented on April 7th 20 at 16:00
@ted74, Yes, that's right. - Princess_Conroy commented on April 7th 20 at 16:03
