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.

2020 Apple MacBook Air Review

Author by: MobileTechReview



  1. Might sound weird but I would like to see MacBook Air vs. Surface Pro 7. Why? I owned a MBA 11” because of price and used it as an at home PC for media consumption and basic productivity. I sold it and bought a cheap laptop, then in 2019 a Surface Pro 7. I am absolutely in love with the Surface, great display, sound, and especially form factor for me. I find I seldom use a laptop on my lap. Watch You Tube as a tablet, dock it to Monitor, Mouse, and Keyboard for Productivity. Price points are similar especially Microsoft bundles.

  2. XPS 13 vs this? I'm a developer but work mostly on servers for actual compilation. Just have a lot of chrome tabs open 🙂

  3. Ordered mine today. Really looking forward to test the thermals. That‘s my only fear, but it should be alright according to you.

  4. Now that you mention it, it must suck for all those last gen XPS and Matebook owners with their nose cams in the world of video conferencing

  5. Love your reviews Lisa!

    1- would you recommend this as an upgrade from a no touchbar MacBook Pro?
    2-Are the speakers better than 13" Pro?
    3- do you prefer this keyboard to the butterfly?
    4- how much of a downgrade is the display in brightness and colors for non-video/photo editing work / casual use?

  6. Great video as always! It would be cool to see a comparison between this and Microsoft's Surface Laptop 3 (which seems to be the most Macbook-esque Windows laptop).

  7. What's the point of the i3 dual core w/ 256gGb SSD version in 2020? when you can get the i5 version for $100 more?
    i5 quad core version beings with 126Gb SSD in 2020??
    As Lisa said, would it have hurt Apple to include a 50W, not 49.9W, battery?
    Please do a comparison between the Dell XPS and Lenovo X1 against this MacBook Air, similarly equipped.

  8. オス、おら孫悟空!美しいですね‼️beautiful gold !thank you!

  9. You are the best youtube tech reviewer imho. Trust your words more than other fancier YouTubers out there.
