It is 2018. The camera on my 2016 MacBook is 480p, and it shows. It looks like snaps from the 90s. It looks like hammered garbage. It's laughable. My 2012 MacBook Pro has a 720p camera. The old MacBook Air, which this laptop is supposed to mop the floor with and replace...has a 720p camera. In fact, nothing in Apple's lineup for YEARS has had a 480p camera...except the MacBook. I go out of my way to not use it to Skype, it's so bad. I was just reminded now because I wanted to use it, and then thought better of it. Again. I get maybe that the thinness of the case was a problem—in 2015. It's 2018. There have been two more revisions since then, and it still doesn't have simple parity with what the MacBook Air had IN MID-2012. That's six years ago. The MacBook didn't just not advance—it went backward, and has now stalled there for three years. I actually can't think of another major product from Apple that got worse than everything else...and then over 3 revisions never made back what it lost. Responses about how I should put up with it can stuff it. Same with other apologists. This is the first thing I will check on the next MacBook spec sheet.
