MacBook Air 2020 Review

Those who want to upgrade from an older MacBook Air might be disappointed. The base-level model uses a 1.1GHz Intel Core i3 dual-core processor. The chip is fast enough for general use, but it will be a little slow when you’re multitasking, or copying large files. Thankfully, Apple’s new Magic Keyboard makes up for some of the slower performance. Its scissor switch mechanism provides better travel and responsiveness.

MacBook Air 2020 Review

While the MacBook Air is not the fastest or most powerful laptop available, it’s still an excellent value. It has top-notch software, a great keyboard, and long battery life. It also has a premium super-slim design.

If you’re looking for a laptop that’s easy to carry around, you can’t go wrong with the MacBook Air. It’s one of the lightest laptops available. It also has excellent speakers that produce good sound without distortion at full volume. The screen also has a Retina display, which offers 25% more colors than sRGB. The screen is also rated for 500 nits of brightness, which is higher than any previous model. The display also has True Tone technology, which automatically adjusts the display’s white point to match the environment.

The new MacBook Air also uses an M1 system-on-a-chip, which was the first processor used in Apple’s laptops. This processor also comes with system memory and a storage controller. While this means that the processor is faster than the previous M2 chip, it’s not quite enough to handle demanding apps. However, the processor does get decent scores in benchmarks.

The base-level MacBook Air will be fine for single-core tasks, but it will slow down when you’re multitasking or copying large files. However, you should expect to pay a bit more for the higher-end model, which has a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and 16GB of RAM.

It’s also worth noting that the base MacBook Air’s storage is stored on a single NAND chip. The display and speakers are integrated, meaning that there’s no speaker grills on the screen. The laptop weighs about 2.8 pounds. It’s also available in three color options, including a Space Gray. It also has Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C ports. Both ports support video out and charging. The trackpad has excellent scrolling, palm rejection, and gesture support.

The new MacBook Air also features an oversized touchpad, which has Force Touch haptics. The new keyboard also has scissor switch keys, which provide a more comfortable typing experience. The keyboard also eliminates excessive clicking noise. It also has more travel than the old butterfly keyboard.

The new MacBook Air also uses an Intel 10th-generation “Ice Lake” processor, which features a new microarchitecture. This processor is faster than the older Intel Core i3 chip, and it should improve your overall performance. However, the new chip still isn’t quite up to the level of the older Intel Core i5 chip.

Overall, the MacBook Air 2020 is a solid laptop that is well worth the upgrade. It’s priced slightly lower than the previous model, and it offers better performance. Whether you’re upgrading from an older MacBook Air or looking to buy your first laptop, the new MacBook Air is the best choice.
