2020 Apple MacBook Air Review

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. when is releasing?

  2. 354 Nits isn't an improvement. Apple updated 2018 Macbooks one month after release to increase brightness.(After reviews were done presumably to make battery life look better.)

  3. How is the MBP13 2.5 times faster? Which benchmark?

  4. can't wait for ipad pro 2020 review!

  5. I am considering buying this while I wait for the next MBP 13. They will hardly lose any value with student pricing.

  6. Would give 2 likes, one more for the T-Shirt 😉

  7. Lisa, you became my favorite tech youtuber and also you are the coolest middle aged Person on the planet.

  8. Hmmmm you too…? I took you as someone who can give us relevant information but unfortunately it like with everyone else…. Info to your watchers is that everything is fine go buy it… Shame really… It is passively cooled like old models, which makes no sense while offering i7 processor with this thing….

  9. Could you compare this one to the surface laptop 3? Very nice video btw👍🏼

  10. So what colour are y'all getting

  11. Can this play gta 5 along with normal web browsing?? Im thinking of doing the i5 processor and 16GB for £1300? Is it worth it??

  12. I just bought one I’m excited to get it! Literally the only laptop that amazon will ship to APO addresses. What dongles do you recommend?

  13. MobileTechReview I just thought I'd drop by your comments section and say my bit. I think you're doing a grand job overall but not having a touchscreen on a mac isn't a drawback. It's a release from greasy fingerprints on my screen. Anybody who touches it can take a hike!

  14. My eyes can't leave the dragon ball T-shirt XD

  15. Lisa knows her stuff!

  16. I have been looking for a reason to move back to MAC OS and this… isn't it. My XPS 13 9370 is smaller, lighter, and has a better resolution. The only difference I can see from the specs is 8th gen to 10th gen i7 chips and WiFi6. I will wait it out for another generation.

  17. They’re expensive and I don’t like dongles… Ima keep my ThinkPad fam

  18. I just cancelled my 2020 Air order after seeing there is no cpu cooler! https://i.ibb.co/hZ8yTWm/Macbook-Air-2020-fan-cooling.png

  19. Bezels aside, physically, it just looks so beautiful compared to other laptops.

  20. Anyone else completely lost interest in mobile tech because of the lock down? I excitedly got an XPS 15 OLED for my month long trip and made good use of it, but the entire year now it'll go un-used mostly (I have a desktop). I'll still be watching mobile tech review but all my purchasing recently (headphones, tablets, phones, laptops, bags etc. ) are all to do with travel. No travel, no buy!

  21. What is innovative in this laptop?. MacBook bhakt… What a shitt…
    Overpriced because no innovation…
    Charging premium price in the name of apple..
    Compare this with chrome book student edition.. tell us the battery life of that laptop…
    They are just doing same thing which microsoft did it in 1990's..
    But good news for macbook owner. Now they can do the same thing with good battery life and 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔…
    Nothing new…😂😂😂😂

  22. Finally a review for this that I can really enjoy and watch till the end.

  23. No thin bezel and no touchscreen. Apple is falling way behind. They're just rehashing old stock.

  24. Neat, thank you for the review! 😊

  25. This T-shirt game is stronger than the Mac product line imo

  26. I have a Lenovo yoga ultrabook. It sits in the high 70’s at 100% cpu on an 8th gen quad core i7. I really don’t feel like the temp limit should be used as a thermal management strategy on a laptop. If only the fan was connected to the heat sink I bet this MacBook would be much cooler.

  27. I was waiting on this review, now waiting on the rumored MBP 14” to release to make a purchasing decision

  28. Where can I get your DBZ shirt?

  29. short , knowledgeable without deep detail thats what every reviewer should do thanx Lisa

  30. When new products are released, I look forward to your reviews. They are always worth waiting for so I can be fully informed before making a purchase.

    And you even included GeekBench 4 test results so I can compare to my current machine, which helps because I have not yet upgraded from version 4. Thank you for all you do!

  31. Pls compare this laptop with other windows laptops.

  32. For modern Apple, it's a step in the right direction as far as I am concerned. It's an actual upgrade by the looks of things. True, I wouldn't want such a device. But if I had to get a Mac and couldn't afford the 16… it is certainly worth considering. If they apply the same design language such as the new keyboard, and no doubt they will, perhaps the 13 over all will be a better value.

  33. any other recommendations under 999?

  34. just remeber the fan is namesake…one day your processor ll die.

  35. sister i love you.

  36. wait for pro or buy this

  37. Can you let me know how is the heating/thermals when it is plugged in and when it is not?

  38. I really hope Apple will make the rosegold version again ♥️

  39. i5 Surface laptop 3 vs. i5 2020 mac book air

  40. Can u review Lenovo yoga s740 14 inch

  41. So strange that apple is offering better value premium windows and android devices these days, never thought I'd be considering a Mac to save money.

  42. Lisa you the BEST
