I'd suggest a clean install of Windows 7 and all drivers, if that's what you want.  It doesn't sound like a hardware issue.

You may want to seriously reconsider the Air -- a Macbook Pro might be a suitable replacement for your system, but the Air is a tablet with a keyboard - it's not the workhorse your current system (or the Pro) is.  The Air is also a dying lineup - it hasn't been updated much in several years (the CPU is three generations out of date).

Apple has gone to USB-C/Thunderbolt, so an adapter is required for standard USB.

The Air is an older design and still has two standard USB 3.0 ports.

With any Macbook, carefully consider the cost of repairs when buying - EVERYTHING, including the storage drive and memory is aboard the mainboard/main logic board, so just about any conceivable repair inside means a mainboard replacement - which on a Macbook/Air/etc. will cost upward or over $1K.
