In terms of design and aesthetic, the latest MacBook Air looks quite similar to its predecessor—but we’re not complaining. It’s one of the best-looking subnotebooks out there. However, things are quite different under the hood.
The MacBook Air 2020 boasts a number of features and upgrades that make it a great option for those in the market for a new ultra-portable laptop. The new MacBook offers twice the storage and double the performance, and to top it off, the much-derided Butterfly switch keyboard is gone.
Here are three reasons why the MacBook Air is worth buying.
Blazing-Fast 10th Gen Intel Core Processor
With the 2020 model out now, the MacBook Air is no longer stuck on the old 8th generation Intel Core processor. The latest version is powered by a blazing fast 10th generation Intel Core i3 chip, with the option to upgrade to the range-topping quad-core Core i7 processor.
The other major upgrade comes in the form of the all-new Intel Iris Plus Graphics, which allow for better gameplay and swifter video editing.
Twice The Storage
The previous iteration of the MacBook Air only came with 128 GB of storage. This was a major issue, as Windows laptops in the same price bracket had been offering 256 GB or more for years. However, it seems like Apple has learned its lesson, as the 2020 MacBook Air starts off with 256 GB of fast-flash storage. If you want, you can go as high as a 2 TB (the previous model had a max of 1 TB).
Long Battery Life
The latest MacBook Air is rated to be good for eleven hours of Wi-Fi-powered web surfing. Now, that may not seem too impressive of a duration, but when you consider the amount of power the 2020 MacBook Air packs—and the fact that it only weighs a feather-light 2.8 pounds—the image changes.
The Bottom Line
With the latest MacBook Air, Apple has finally managed to get the formula just right. The latest model offers the best of all worlds, packing power, endurance, and performance into a breathtaking, ultra-portable package. If you’re in the market for a subnotebook, this little beauty is really worth considering.
