Apple MacBook Air 2020 review: the best Mac laptop for most people

 

The MacBook Air 2020 makes Apple's cheapest laptop even cheaper, and fixes its biggest flaw

Very fast for general use ; Great new keyboard ; Strongeer processor and graphics ; More storage than previous models

Poor webcam ; Dual-core power won't be enough for some ; Battery life is pretty average

MacBook Air (2020) review

 

Hello, old friend

Superb keyboard ; Cheaper than before ; Great speakers

Battery life is not all-day ; Core i3 model a little underpowered ; Webcam is only 720p

With a cheaper entry price and an improved keyboard, the only thing against the excellence of the 2020 MacBook Air is its less-than-full-day battery life. Otherwise it’s the go-to laptop we’d recommend to most people

Apple MacBook Air (2020) initial review: Keyboard dreams become a reality

 

The 2020 MacBook Air takes what was great about the 2019 model and merely enhances the experience. The big win here those is that it gets the new

Retina display is bright and detailed ; Keyboard is so much better to use ; Storage starts at 256GB (larger capacity also available) ; Sub four-figure price point is key

Still only two USB-C ports ; No SD card slot ; No Face ID login ; Screen bezel is large compared to many Windows alternatives ; Some fan noise - even with the i3 model

The 2020 model takes what was great about its predecessor and enhances it with a much better keyboard, double storage as standard, and a price drop. It's a win-win.

Apple MacBook Air (2020) Review: Return to Form

 

The new Apple MacBook Air hias an excellent keyboard and great speakers, but isn't as powerful as Windows rivals.

Excellent keyboard ; Strong build quality ; 16:10 display ; Chic design ; Detailed top-firing speakers ; Long battery life

Limited ports ; Lackluster webcam ; Not as powerful as comparably priced Windows rivals

Apple’s MacBook is a return to form as a chic, premium laptop for everyday use with great speakers and an excellent set of speakers, though it falls behind Windows PCs in performance.

Apple MacBook Air (2020) review: The Mac starter kit

 

As the budget option among Macs, the MacBook Air is important, but recent models were disappointing. Does the 2020 restore the MacBook Air to its former glory?

New keyboard is an improvement ; More affordable ; Better graphics ; Excellent build quality

Performance still lacking ; Bezels are outdated

Apple MacBook Air review (2020): A return to form

 

The MacBook Air is easier to recommend than before, thanks to a lower starting price, double the base storage and, most importantly, a redesigned keyboard that's actually pleasant to type on. Other brands offer either a full-size USB port or longer...

Finally: a good keyboard! ; Double the base storage ; Sharp Retina display ; Excellent trackpad ; Touch ID works well and is easy to set up

Port selection still feels too skimpy ; The battery life is good but not best in class ; The lack of full-size USB ports is still a pain

Apple MacBook Air (2020) review: the best Mac for most people

 

The new Magic Keyboard and faster processors put the Air back on top.

New keyboard ; Faster processors ; Lower price

Middling battery life if you don’t use Apple’s apps ; Not suited for intense workloads ; Average-at-best webcam

MacBook Air 2020 review

 

Sleek design ; Great battery life ; Powerful sound ; Magic keyboard is clicky and comfortable

Display a bit muted without TrueTone enabled ; Underwhelming performance ; Only has USB Type-C ports

The MacBook Air 2020 is sleek laptop with good endurance, but it could use more performance.
