2020 Apple MacBook Air Review


Lisa Gade reviews the 2020 refresh of the MacBook Air, with a 13.3” IPS Retina display, Magic Keyboard with scissor keys (goodbye Butterfly keyboard!), and Intel 10th gen Ice Lake CPUs with Intel Iris Plus graphics. The laptop ships with macOS Catalina, has Touch ID with a T2 chip and 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports. It’s available in 3 colors and your choice of Core i3, i5 and i7 processors. We review the quad core i5 model. Starting price is $999.

  1. Now that you mention it, it must suck for all those last gen XPS and Matebook owners with their nose cams in the world of video conferencing

  2. Love your reviews Lisa!

    1- would you recommend this as an upgrade from a no touchbar MacBook Pro?
    2-Are the speakers better than 13" Pro?
    3- do you prefer this keyboard to the butterfly?
    4- how much of a downgrade is the display in brightness and colors for non-video/photo editing work / casual use?

  3. Great video as always! It would be cool to see a comparison between this and Microsoft's Surface Laptop 3 (which seems to be the most Macbook-esque Windows laptop).

  4. What's the point of the i3 dual core w/ 256gGb SSD version in 2020? when you can get the i5 version for $100 more?
    i5 quad core version beings with 126Gb SSD in 2020??
    As Lisa said, would it have hurt Apple to include a 50W, not 49.9W, battery?
    Please do a comparison between the Dell XPS and Lenovo X1 against this MacBook Air, similarly equipped.

  5. I recently got a 2015 MacBook retina 15” with an i7 for a little less than the same price as this but I still think this looks pretty great!

  6. Lisa, with money being no object. Assuming both are the same specs Would you rather have the 2020 MB Air or the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3?


  7. Glad you touched on the thermals. I’m going to wait and see what the pro offers; and if were to spec it, it would be high end air with the equivalent pro 13/14. Obviously price will be a determining factor. Either cannot be worse than my 9350 😂 😫.

  8. I really don't care much about the refreshed MBA, but being reviewed by Lisa makes me interested, she makes good and honest reviews, which give me a trustful perspective. ♥

  9. Great video. I reckon they'll sell a ton of them at that price. I bought one in 2013 that is still in good shape, no indication of anything amiss.

  10. Excellent review as always but saying it's the best MacBook Air is not saying much. It's not hard to improve on a 1440 x 900 screen resolution. And the pre-2016 MBA keyboards were already perfect. The 2020 MBA is really just the least-expensive way to get onto the MacOS platform with a "new" laptop. You're better off getting a used pre-2016 MacBook Pro 13" for about $500. If you want that new unboxing experience, you're better off saving the extra money for the 16" MacBook Pro or the upcoming 14" MacBook Pro. I have the 2012 MBA 13" and the 2015 MBP 13". I purchased the 2018 Huawei MateBook X Pro when Apple started the butterfly keyboard fiasco. Now I'm waiting until the end of year to see what Apple offers in terms of a 14" MBP or a refreshed 16" MBP.
