Apple MacBook Air (M1, 2020) review: the best laptop for most people

 

The new MacBook Air reveals a world where thin and light laptops don't have to be compromised

Apple MacBook Air (M1, 2020) review: Big steps to a bright future

 

The MacBook Air now runs exclusively on Apple's own processors, dubbed Apple Silicon, called the M1 chip. So what difference does that make?

Crisp display ; Performance is super-fast ; Fanless design ; Brilliant keyboard ; Not a bank-breaker ; Apple Silicon transition is going well ; 256GB minimum storage welcome

Maximum memory of 16GB ; Large bezels beginning to look dated ; No Face ID login ; Some key apps don't run on Apple Silicon natively yet

It's difficult to recommend against the M1-based MacBook Air. Apple Silicon support still needs a little work, but rivals all have compromises versus the Air in terms of performance, price or portability.

MacBook Air M1 (2020)

 

Boasting Apple's new M1 chipset, the MacBook Air is one of the most powerful ultralight laptops on the market right now.

M1 Apple MacBook Air (2020) review: Why buy anything else?

 

M1 Apple MacBook Air (2020): Why buy anything else?

Fast and quiet ; Great battery life ; Superb display

Some software may not run ; M1 MacBook Pro has better sustained performance

No two ways about it, it’s a stunning debut for Apple’s ARM-based M1 MacBook Air.

Apple MacBook Air (M1) review

 

Some zing in the Air

Super-fast ; Great battery life ; Retina display is superb

Webcam poor ; Thick bezels

Blazing speeds, better battery - but a disappointing camera

Apple Macbook Air 2020 (M1) laptop review

  (Rating Hidden)

The late 2020 MacBook Air is one of two MacBook options to come with Apple's new M1 processor. This model is thinner and lighter than the MacBook Pro, but it also has a smaller battery and no cooling fan to keep...

Apple MacBook Air (Apple M1, 2020) review: The world’s best ultraportable | IT PRO

 

This debut for Apple's M1 silicon is a triumph of epic proportions

Phenomenal performance ; Whisper-quiet operation ; Flawless display

No design change from previous generation

Apple MacBook Air M1 review: Fast, fanless, and absolutely fantastic

 

The MacBook Air M1 leverages Apple's own CPU to morph from a small and inexpensive but slow option into a darn fast alternative.

Apple's M1 blows Intel away ; Phenomenal battery life ; Excellent keyboard and touchpad ; Rock-solid build quality ; Simple good looks

Supports only one external display

Apple MacBook Air with M1 review: new chip, no problem

 

We are stunned by how good this laptop is.

Fast ; Intel-based apps work well ; Excellent battery life

Awful webcam ; iOS apps are a whiff ; It’s time to admit Macs would be better with touchscreens

Apple has released a new MacBook Air with its own processor inside, the Arm-based M1 chip. It makes this laptop very fast and runs Intel apps without any significant problems. It also has very good battery life but a bad webcam.

Apple MacBook Air (M1, Late 2020) Review

 

The M1-equipped MacBook Air now packs far better performance than its predecessors, rivaling at times the M1-based MacBook Pro. At $999, it's the best value among macOS laptops.

Port selection limited to two USB Type-C connections ; Still no touch-screen option
