We’ve finally had the chance to review the new 2020 MacBook Air & we are happy to say this model has taken huge strides in quality since the previous mid-2017 model. Here are our favorite things about the 2020 MaBook Air:
1.It comes with the new scissor-switch keyboard that Apple introduced in the 16-inch MacBook Pro. Discontinuing the previous “butterfly keyboard” essentially means unreliable keys and costly repairs shouldn’t be a problem with this model.
2.The processors have been upgraded to Intel’s new 10th-generation parts making the dreaded spinning beachball much less commonplace in standard tasks.
3.The new MacBook Air costs $100 cheaper than the last model starting at $999. For this price you are also getting double the previous amount of storage with 256GB on a PCIe-based SSD.
Our pick for the MacBook Air is the $1299 model which sports the 10th Generation Intel Core i5 Processor and 512GB of SSD storage (that’s a good price to storage ratio in our opinion)!
It’s been a long journey, but the new MacBook Air is back to where it should be: being one of the best options in the laptop market for most people.
