How does this new model compare to the previous version?
The 2020 MacBook Air features a new and improved keyboard for the 13.3" model, previously available on the 16" model. The refined scissor mechanism delivers responsive, quiet typing, while inverted-T arrow keys help to navigate lines of code, spreadsheets or games more easuly. Backlit keys with ambient light sensor help you type in low-light settings.
Thin, Light and Durable
Since Steve Jobs first pulled the original MacBook Air from a slim envelope, the MacBook Air has focused on delivering portability through its slim and light design. The 2020 MacBook Air 13.3-inch measures just 1.61cm at its deepest point and weighs an astonishing 1.29kg, making it ideal to take with you. The amazing portability of this machine is helped by the PCIe-based SSD. It doesn’t have any moving parts, which means it’s more reliable and quiet. Lightning fast, durable, silent — qualities that make sense in a laptop tasked with keeping up with you.
A Secure Option
Apple has incorporated Touch ID into the keyboard, as well as Apple’s state of the art T2 security chip. It also makes online shopping easier by using Apple Pay at checkout - just one touch and you’re done. This chip also means you can have Apple’s virtual assistant Siri to hand whenever you need her.
8th-Generation Intel Core i3
The eighth-generation Intel Core i3 processor will handle all of your day-to-day tasks, allowing you to multi-task and work on intensive applications without experiencing any lag. Running at a base speed of 1.1GHz with a Turbo Boost speed of 3.5GHz, applications run faster and more efficiently than before. So everything you normally do on a computer you can do even quicker.
MacBook Air 2020 features a large battery that works with the power-efficient 8th-generation Intel Core processor to last all day. You can expect up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge while watching iTunes films, or 11 hours of wireless web browsing. MacBook Air will also preserve its own battery life by entering standby mode after it’s been asleep for more than 3 hours, helping to conserve battery life for up to 30 days. You can even continue to receive new emails and calendar invitations while your MacBook’s asleep by enabling Power Nap.
