Apple MacBook Air made a fantastic improvement and even reduce the price rate, making it cheap and affordable for Apple lovers to use.
The Air is the one of Apple’s most popular Mac and best Apple Laptop ever made, That is history for Apple.
It was mysterious: At one point Apple opening said that the base model 13-inch MacBook Pro was a better choice than the Air during a keynote and people continued buying the Air, which shows so much love people have for Air because of the new features.
The stubborn popularity of Air, made Apple redesign the MacBook Air around a retina display in 2018. But Apple gave it a Beautiful keyboard, which is called the Magic keyboard, a design first seen in the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro and based on the standalone Magic Keyboard for the iMac ($3,200 at HSN). It’s a very big and wonderful Improvement on the long-suffering butterfly keyboard found in most Macs in recent years which has been general customer satisfaction.
Quickly take a look at the Apple MacBook air 2019 13-inch. Now take the brand-new 2020 version of the Apple MacBook air. Put them next to each other and try to tell the difference. You can’t; they’re so identical. Until you open both lids, if you look closely there’s a new look and on the keyboard, The flat, island-style keyboard is slightly raised on the new model versus the older one.
More than anything the new magic keyboard is what made others stand out from this latest Apple MacBook air and it made it a winner. it solves a problem largely of Apple’s own making, but the end result is highly satisfying, especially when coupled with new $899 starting price and component changes, which is why I consider it worthy of an Editors’ Choice nod.
The new keyboard isn’t the only interesting new thing about the new Apple MacBook Air. Another interesting news is that the laptop finally officially returns to the classic $899 (£*99, AU$1,499) price with a 1.1GHz dual-core Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. But almost everyone should spend little more on the upgrade to the 1.1GHz quad-core Core i5. I’ve been reviewing the step-up $1,299 configuration that has a quad-core Core i5 and doubles the storage to 512GB, which is the version I think most people should get. You can’t upgrade the storage later, so best to load up when you can.
Along the left side, there are two Thunderbolt 3 ports; the new Intel chips have Iris Plus graphics, which means you can now run a 6K display from a MacBook Air.
The 13.3in screen is crisp and beautiful, now supporting Apple’s True Tone technology, which adjusts the screens colours depending on ambient light. It was a feature restricted to the MacBook Pro in Apple’s laptop line until now.

Power and battery life
I have to say that the Air’s battery life does last up to 12 hours with the claim of apple reviews and what they told me, my workday of running Chrome, UC browser, and doing photoshop and opening about 10 tabs, the battery lasts up to 10 hours. So nice to get a work done without plugin any charger.
Charging the MacBook Air with the included 30W charger took more than two hours 15 minutes, which is pretty slow for a modern laptop with some such as Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 3 hitting 80% in an hour. Using a 45W charger shaved 40 minutes off the full charge time.
General computing performance was surprisingly good from the Core i3 version, including when connected to a 4K display. I will have to say it barely overheats. I tested a video call with the Apple MacBook Air and a 50-minute video call knocked around two hours off the usual battery life so you’ll need the charger more often.
This is one of the best things about MacBooks compared to Windows 10 laptops – you can leave them in standby for days on end, and the battery life will be relatively unchanged. Meanwhile, many Windows laptops will somehow hemorrhage battery life even when not in use.
