Macbook Air 2020 review: the best Mac for most people



Apple’s 2020 MacBook Air comes with the new scissor-switch keyboard the company introduced in the 16-inch MacBook Pro, and the processors have been upgraded to Intel’s new 10th-generation parts. Apple’s also lowered the price by $100, with the new MacBook Air now starting at $999. Nilay Patel has the full review.

  • Thanks for the real world review! Regarding battery life, i think if you run safari instead of chome, you might get a few more hours. How about the i7 version? Any benefit to i7 vs i5 even with the thermothrottling?

  • Blaming the laptop for the battery life is not a great idea. Chrome making macbook airs deplete in battery way faster than is normal and then showing off their chrome book line with better battery life (while using chrome for both) seems like an interesting place to be profit wise don’t you think. Use safari and if you ever need something that safari can’t do, use chrome briefly then quit it again. Or use the new edge which runs on chromium and in my experience gets better battery life than chrome ever can

  • Why put a headphone jack when most of the phones and other devices they make don’t use that headphone jack so if you have a iPhone and a MacBook Air u need different headphones 🤦🏾‍♂️ would rather had a regular usb

  • Great job Nilay! And Becca, please directing Bohr videos too 😁. His mic and camera position is so sad

  • 98 percent of people don’t video edit much if ever and if they do, it’s not their entire workflow. If that was the case, they wouldn’t by this machine. They would have a MacBook Pro. So great for covering this topic like all tech reviews but most people don’t have your workflow.

  • Is it worth paying so much money for a laptop to use Chrome and Zoom? Come on, I can do that on my phone, this is ridiculous. You should try to review usage that can be only done on a laptop.

  • The touchbar is missing simply because it would cost a lot more to produce the machine and therefore hike up the price. Touchbar would even require an ARM chip inside the machine to control it and adding to the cost.

    Tuukka Nygård March 27, 2020 2:23 am Reply
  • The battery issue is primarily due to heavy use of zoom. Apple would have obviously assumed people won’t be making such heavy use of it while rating their batteries.

  • ok pro tip about the touch bar, when watching Hulu in the browser (safari i think) you can use it to scrub through and essentially skip the mid roll ads. but yea otherwise touch bar bad

  • These Verge reviews. The MacBook is also not a toaster. Review the product for what it is, not what it isn’t.
