Apple MacBook Air Review
For years, Apple MacBook Air has been a solid performer, a favorite amongst super-thin Ultrabooks but with only minor revisions. We liked the model when it was revised in early 2020, but aside from keyboard tweaks, it was hardly a game changer. The performance of the MacBook Air has always been second to its affordability and portability, but this concept has evolved with the arrival of Apple’s own M1 CPU. Along with its latest OS upgrade, Apple abandoned its long-standing usage of Intel chips for this proprietary semiconductor solution, giving the MacBook Air new life.
The MacBook Air released alongside the current 13-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini, both of which will be powered by the M1 system-on-a-chip (SoC). All of them are amazing, but the upgrade to the MacBook Air is the most striking. It’s the greatest bargain amongst Mac laptops at $1k (as tested), especially when one considers its nearly 30-hour battery life and quality super-slim design. The M1-based MacBook, which outperforms its predecessors, is our top-pick Apple notebook for 2020.
