Retina Display
Four million pixels.
One immersive experience.

Picture of the Macbook Air 2020 Specs

With a resolution of 2560-by-1600 for over 4 million pixels, the results are positively jaw dropping. Images take on a new level of detail and realism. Text is sharp and clear. And True Tone technology automatically adjusts the white point of the display to match the color temperature of your environment — making web pages and email look as natural as the printed page. With millions of colors, everything you see is rich and vibrant. The display glass goes right to the edge of the enclosure, so you can focus on what’s on your screen. And you’re going to love what you see.

 

 

Performance
Easy to bring along. Totally brings it

Picture of the Macbook air 2020 Performance

MacBook Air packs heavy-duty performance into just 2.8 pounds. The available quad-core Intel Core i7 processor delivers up to 2x faster CPU performance1 and up to 80 percent faster graphics performance,4 to help you power through everything from browsing the web to playing games to editing video. Up to 16GB of high-performance 3733MHz memory lets you work seamlessly even with multiple apps open. The fast SSD storage starts at 256GB — double the capacity of the previous standard configuration. And it can be configured with up to 2TB, providing plenty of room for all your movies, music, photos, files, and games

KeyboardFeel the Magic.

MacBook Air now features the new Magic Keyboard, first seen on the 16-inch MacBook Pro. The refined scissor mechanism with 1 mm of travel delivers a responsive, comfortable, and quiet typing experience. The inverted-T arrow keys help you fly through lines of code, spreadsheets, or game environments. And the backlit keys with ambient light sensor help you type in low-light settings.

Force Touch Trackpad

The Force Touch trackpad is one of the best in the world. It lets you interact with your Mac in a variety of ways based on subtle differences in pressure. You have precise control and a uniform response — no matter where you click the trackpad — as well as plenty of room for Multi-Touch gestures like pinch and zoom. Your fingers will feel right at home.

The advanced security and convenience of Touch ID are built right into MacBook Air. Simply place your finger on the Touch ID sensor and — just like that — your Mac unlocks. Use your fingerprint to immediately access locked documents, notes, and system settings, without entering yet another password. Online shopping is even easier — select Apple Pay at checkout, and with just one touch you’re done. No need to enter shipping or billing info, and your card details are never shared. With Touch ID, your private information stays private.

 

Speakers and Camera

Sound that speaks volumes.

Thunderbolt 3

One for all, all in one.

 

 

Macbook Thunderbolt

Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the ultra-versatility of the USB-C industry standard to create one revved-up universal port — and MacBook Air has two of them. Thunderbolt 3 integrates data transfer, charging, and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug it in, it’s always right side up.

SUMMARY

It seems that Apple has checked off most of the boxes on its fans' MacBook Air wish list. You get the fantastic Magic keyboard and Touch ID in the beautiful svelte chassis we've come to expect from the brand. Plus, for $1,299, you can get a quad-core 10th Gen Intel CPU, a first for the series. And the laptop lasts over 9 hours on a charge.

However, if you need more power, you might want to consider the $1,599 Dell XPS 13, which while more expensive has Core i7 CPU. It also has a brighter, more vivid display. But if you want an ultraportable with great battery life, speedy SSDs and a super comfortable keyboard, the MacBook Air is a good choice. And if you're looking to save a few dollars, consider the $999 Core i3 model.
