Apple refreshes its MacBook Air lineup with a new Magic Keyboard, 256GB storage (twice the storage from its predecessor), an overall performance boost, and at a cheaper price tag. The new MacBook Air 2020 features a unibody wedge design made from 100 percent recycled aluminum.
Apple MacBook Air 2020 Launched
The MacBook Air 2020 packs the (same old) 13-inch True Tone Retina display, powered by (up to) 10th-gen Intel Core processor, coupled with 8GB RAM, paired with (up to) 512GB storage, runs on macOS Catalina and is backed by a 49.9‑watt-hour lithium‑polymer battery. The company promises to deliver up to two times faster CPU performance and up to 80% faster graphics performance.
In addition to that, this refreshed MacBook Air comes with a new Magic Keyboard, which has a redesigned scissor mechanism that delivers 1mm of key travel for a comfortable and stable key feel. In contrast, the new inverted-“T” arrangement for the arrow keys makes it easier to find without looking down.
