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Performance still lacking ; Bezels are outdated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

The classic MacBook Air makes some big improvements and even cuts the starting price, making it hard to beat for students, creatives and almost anyone

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.

Apple MacBook Air 2020 Core i5 Review – The best MacBook you can get? – No

 

Notebookcheck reviews the new Apple MacBook Air with the quad-core i5 CPU. The keyboard has been improved, but the performance is still the Achilles heel of the laptop.

excellent case;very good input devices;long battery runtimes;good display;improved speakers

weak and loud cooling system;bad webcam;only two USB-C ports and one is blocked for charging;hardly suitable for gaming;no Wi-Fi 6;no upgrade options – everything is soldered

Apple MacBook Air (2020) Laptop Review

 

Don't call it a comeback—Apple just finally fixed the broken things.

The keyboard is not terrible ; Superb design ; Great battery life

Upgrades are expensive ; Keyboard is still a bit shallow

If you’re willing to look at Windows alternatives—and you absolutely should be—then there is fierce competition. In this price bracket, you should also look at the Dell XPS 13, the HP Spectre x360, and the Lenovo Yoga C940. They all have awesome,...

MacBook Air 2020 review

 

The new MacBook Air is the best MacBook for most people, with an improved Magic Keyboard, long battery life and a lower price.

If you're a power user, but don't want to spend MacBook Pro prices, the Dell XPS 13 offers more speed and longer battery life, giving Mac users a reason to consider switching. However, if you've got the cash, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is a speed demon...
