What’s so great about it? With a speedy Intel Core i3 Dual-Core chip (10th generation) built-in, 8GB of memory, 256GB of on-board storage and the latest version of MacOS Catalina, it’s a beast. It’s also super-lightweight at just under three pounds.
But what really separates the MacBook Air from previous models is its new and improved Magic Keyboard. In the past, Apple used a ‘butterfly style’ keyboard that was inaccurate and slippery. It was one of the biggest complaints from users. But for 2020, Apple introduced new ‘scissor-style’ keys that are more comfortable and accurate for typing.
“The screen is beautiful. The Magic Keyboard feels very nice and a definite upgrade from the previous butterfly mechanism,” writes a happy five-star reviewer. “For day-to-day use of browsing, Netflix, Zoom calls and presentations, you would most likely never hear the fan nor feel the heat from underneath your keyboard.”
Even longtime Windows 10 users are making the switch to Mac because of its ease of use and wide range of apps available—over 1.8 million compared to Microsoft Store’s more than 669,000.
"The battery life is phenomenal," says a fan. "I can take it on the go and use it all day with no issues at all...Performance is spectacular. It runs circles around anything else I have that’s windows based...For the majority of people, this is going to be their go to laptop. What you get for an entry level Mac is stellar."
