Apple Macbook Air pro 2020: full information

FULL INFORMATION ABOUT APPLE MACBOOK AIR PRO 2020

ALL RIGHT, A MACBOOK AIR REVIEW ARTICLE SHOT BY ME, BY MYSELF, AT HOME. BUT BECCA REMAINS DIRECTING THIS THING OVER ZOOM, SO I CAN NOT SCREW IT UP REGRETTABLE, RIGHT? FROM WHAT I CAN SEE, IT'S LIKE THERE'SSTILL A TOUCH HEADROOM. WE COULD TILT-UP LIKE A LITERAL CENTIMETER, LIKE, YEAH. LET'S TILT-UP A TOUCH. JUST A TOUCH BIT MORE. LET'S... OKAY. COME TO THE CAMERA, ANDTHEN CONCENTRATE SORT OF A CLICK. OH, WAIT. WAIT, ONE CLICK LESS. OKAY. THAT APPEARS SPECIALIZED. SO THERE IS A NEW MACBOOK AIR, WHICH IS APPLE'S HOTTEST MAC. THE LARGE UPDATE HAPPENED TWO YEARS AGO WITH A FULL REDESIGNAROUND A RETINA DISPLAY. THIS NEW 2020 MODEL HAS FASTER 10TH GEN INTEL CHIPS AND A COMPLETELY NEW KEYBOARD.

 APPLE'S ALSO LOWERED THE WORTH. THE BOTTOM MODEL STARTS AT$999 WITH A 1.1GHZ DUAL-CORE CORE I3 PROCESSOR,8GB OF RAM, AND 256GB OF STORAGE. I HAVE BEEN REVIEWING THE STEP-UP $1,299 MODEL THAT FEATURES A QUAD-CORE CORE I5AND 512GB OF STORAGE, WHICH IS THAT THE VERSION I THINK MOST PEOPLE SHOULD GET. IT'S GOT TWO THUNDERBOLT 3 PORTS, WHICH NOW SUPPORT RUNNING 6K DISPLAYS, AND HEADPHONE JACK, WHICH, WELL... YOU RECOGNIZE HOW I FEEL. LET'S START WITH THE MOST IMPORTANT THING: THE NEW KEYBOARD. IT'S BEEN A REALLY BAD FEW YEARS FOR APPLE'S LAPTOP KEYBOARDS. THEREFORE THE SWITCHBACK TO A STANDARD SCISSOR KEY DESIGN IS EXTREMELY WELCOME.

APPLE IS LOOKING THISTHE MAGIC KEYBOARD, AND IT FIRST ARRIVED ON THE 16-INCH MACBOOK PRO LAST YEAR. BECAUSE IT HAPPENS, I HAVE BEEN EMPLOYING A 16-INCH MACBOOK PRO FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS NOW, AND I AM HAPPY TO MENTION THAT THE AIR'S KEYBOARD FEELS ALMOST PRECISELY THE SAME, WHICH IS TO SAY: EXCELLENT. THE KEYS HAVE A MILLIMETER OF TRAVEL, THEY'RE JUST CLICKY ENOUGHWITHOUT BEING TOO LOUD, AND OVERALL, THE ENTIRE THING IS VERY SOLID AND REALLY SATISFYING. THERE'S ALSO ZERO CHASSIS FLEX, SO YOU'LL POUND AWAY ONTHIS KEYBOARD ON YOUR LAP OR AT A WEIRD ANGLE ON THE COUCH. I DO NOT ACTUALLY NEED TO OFFER APPLE AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF CREDIT FOR UPDATING THIS KEYBOARD.

IT TOOK THE CORPORATE WAY TOO LONG TO URGE FAR AWAY FROM THAT BUTTERFLY DESIGN AFTER PEOPLE STARTEDCALLING OUT THE ISSUES. IT'S GETTING TO TAKE SOME TIME TO EARN BACK THAT TRUST. BUT HISTORY ASIDE, THE KEYBOARD IS THAT THE SINGLE MOST VITAL A PART OF A LAPTOP, AND THEREFORE THE NEW MACBOOK AIR'SKEYBOARD IS EXTREMELY GOOD. I EVEN HAVE TO MENTION, I GREATLY PREFER THIS KEYBOARD WITH A TYPICAL TOP ROW AND PERFORMANCE BUTTONS TO THE TOUCH BAR VERSION ON THE 16-INCH MACBOOK PRO THAT I HAVE BEEN USING. I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THE TOUCH BAR. IT SEEMS TO FORM BASIC THINGS LIKE ADJUSTING VOLUME AND BRIGHTNESS MORE COMPLICATEDWITHOUT MAKING ANYTHING SUCH A LOT EASIER THAT IT'SWORTH THE TRADE-OFF. I DO KNOW PEOPLE FEEL DIFFERENTLY, AND THAT I LEGITIMATELY KNOW PEOPLE WHO LOVE THE TOUCH BAR, LIKE BECCA.

 COME ON! BUT I DO NOT, AND THAT I THINK IT'S REALLY TELLING THAT THE AIR IS APPLE'S HOTTEST LAPTOP, AND IT DOESN'T HAVE THE TOUCH BAR. THAT IS THE RIGHT CHOICE. THE OPPOSITE THING IT DOESN'THAVE MAY BE A TOUCHSCREEN, AND ONE, TOUCHSCREENS ON LAPTOPSARE PRETTY COMMON NOW, AND OTHER PEOPLE SEEM TO LOVE THEM, AND TWO, IF APPLE CAN FIND OUT HOWTO ADD TRACKPAD SUPPORT TO IPADOS, IT CAN PROBABLY FIND OUT THE WAY TO ADD TOUCH SUPPORT TO MACOS. EXCEPT FOR IMMEDIATELY , AND HONESTLY,FOR THE NEAR FUTURE, THE MAC IS MOUSE AND KEYBOARD ONLY. THE OPPOSITE NEW THING FROM LAST YEAR ARE THE PROCESSORS, WHICH AREINTEL'S NEW 10TH GEN CHIPS WITH INTEL IRIS PLUS GRAPHICS.

OUR REVIEW UNIT FEATURES A 1.1GHZ QUAD-CORE CORE I5 CHIP AND 8GB OF RAM IN IT, ANDIT'S BEEN FAIRLY CAPABLE. I HAVE BEEN WORKING INCHROME, SLACK, AND ZOOM, AND A TOUCH LIGHTROOM ON THE SIDE LIKE I NORMALLY DO, ANDIT'S FELT TOTALLY SOLID. THAT FEELING IS PROTECTED BY THE SINGLE-THREADED GEEKBENCH SCORE, WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY IN LINE WITH A 16-INCH CORE I9 MACBOOK PROTHAT I HAVE BEEN USING. BUT THIS THING STILL ISN'T A ROCKET, AND THAT I CAN DEFINITELY PUSHTHE LIMITS PRETTY EASILY. JUST OPENING LIGHTROOM IS ENOUGH TO FORM THE FAN SPEED UP, ANDAFTER A FEW OF EDITS, IT'S GOING FULL BLAST. AND HEAVY SUSTAINED WORKLOADS CAUSE THE PROCESSOR TO DOSOME THERMAL THROTTLING.

YOU'LL DEFINITELY SEE ITWITH HEAVY BENCHMARK TESTS LIKE CINEBENCH. I ASKED APPLE ABOUT THERMALTHROTTLING, AND THAT THEY TOLD ME IT'S INTENTIONALLY . THEYDON'T THINK MOST OF THE PEOPLE NEED HARDCORE SUSTAINED PERFORMANCE, THEREFORE THE AIR IS DESIGNEDTO BOOST THE PROCESSOR UP TO THREE .2GHZ AS REQUIRED THEN BRING IT RIGHT BACKTRACK . BUT ONCE THINGS HEAT UP, THE PROCESSOR'S CLOCK SPEED IS CAPPED AT A LOWER NUMBER WITH THE FAN GOING SO THE SYSTEM CAN MANAGE HEAT. AGAIN, IN PRETTY AVERAGE DAY-TO-DAY USE, I NEVER FELT ANY OF THIS THERMAL MANAGEMENT SLOW THINGS DOWN, WHICH IS THAT THE ENTIRE POINT. BUT IT IS ALSO CLEAR THEREISN'T PLENTY OF HEADROOM IF YOU WOULD LIKE TONS OF PERFORMANCE ALL THE TIME. YOU'LL DEFINITELY ATLEAST HEAR THE FAN, AND YOU WOULD POSSIBLY EXPERIENCE SOME SLOWDOWNS. I ASKED FOR QUESTIONS ON TWITTER, AND MOST OF YOU WANTED TOKNOW ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE GAP BETWEEN THE NEW AIR ANDTHE 13-INCH PRO, WHICH THERMAL DESIGN ISBASICALLY THE LARGE DIFFERENCE.

 APPLE TOLD ME THAT THE MACBOOK PRO IS THAT THE BETTER LAPTOP FOR PEOPLE THAT GOT TO PUSH THEIR MACHINETO THE LIMIT ALL THE TIME. IT'S A MORE FORGIVING THERMAL DESIGN AND FASTER TURBO BOOST CLOCK SPEEDS. IT CAN BASICALLY RUN HOTTER AND FASTER FOR A EXTENDED PERIOD OF YOUR TIME . THE BAD NEWS IS THAT THE 13-INCH MACBOOK PRO STILLHAS THAT BUTTERFLY KEYBOARD. THERE ARE TONS OF RUMORS OFAN UPDATE COMING, AND YEAH... WE'RE JUST GETTING TO HAVETO KEEP AN EYE FIXED THEREON . ALL OF THAT'S TO SAYTHAT THE AIR'S PERFORMANCE IS COMPLETELY FINE FOR MOSTDAY-TO-DAY TASKS. BUT IF YOU OFTEN USE A BUNCHOF DEMANDING APPLICATIONS, YOU ARE GOING TO BE HEARING THAT FAN TONS . APPLE SAYS YOU'LL GET11 HOURS OF BATTERY LIFE ON THE NEW AIR IF YOU'RE JUST RUNNINGSAFARI TO BROWSE THE ONLINE.

BUT IN REAL WORLD, RUNNINGCHROME, SLACK, AND ZOOM, I GOT MORE LIKE FIVE HOURS OF BATTERY LIFE WITH THE SCREEN TURNED ALL THE HIGH. I PROBABLY COULD'VEEXTENDED THAT A TOUCH IF I TURNED DOWN THE BRIGHTNESS, BUT THIS IS OFTEN NOT THE WORLD'S BRIGHTEST SCREEN TO START WITH. IT AVERAGES ABOUT 400 NITS OF BRIGHTNESS COMPARED TO, SAY, 625 FOR THE IPHONE 11. THOSE THREE APPS ARE BATTERYHOGS. BUT AT NOW, I SLEEP IN ZOOM AND SLACKALL DAY, EVERY DAY, AND THAT I WOULDN'T SAY I'M BLOWN AWAY BY THE BATTERY LIFE I'M EXPERIENCING. AND WHILE SAFARI IS MUCH MORE EFFICIENT THAN CHROME, CHROME REMAINS JUST A FACT OF LIFE FOR TONS OF INDIVIDUALS. LIKE EVERY APPLE PRODUCT, THERE'S A NICHE BETWEEN THE RESULTS YOU GET IF YOU RESIDE ENTIRELY WITHINAPPLE'S ECOSYSTEM AND REALITY. SPEAKING OF ZOOM, THE WEBCAM WITHIN THE AIR IS THAT THE STANDARD 720P WEBCAM APPLE'S BEEN USING FOREVER.

 IT'S FINE, BUT IT'S DISAPPOINTING THAT APPLE PUTS A NUMBER OF THE BESTCAMERAS WITHIN THE INDUSTRY WITHIN THE IPHONE AND STICKSWITH ONE AMONG THE FOREMOST MEDIUM CAMERAS WITHIN THE MAC. I JUST GOT TONS OF QUESTIONSABOUT THE MACBOOK AIR VERSUS THE IPAD PRO WITH THE NEW MAGIC KEYBOARD SINCE THE 11-INCH PRO WHICH KEYBOARD COST ABOUT AN EQUIVALENT ASTHE BASE-MODEL AIR. AND WELL... ONLY YOU'LL KNOW THE ANSWER IN YOUR HEART. FOR ME, I'D PICK THE AIR FOR NOW. YOU GET A MUCH BIGGER SCREEN, AND MACOS HAS FEWER LIMITATIONS ON WHAT IT CAN DO. DIETER FEATURES A WHOLE REVIEW OF THAT NEW IPAD PRO ABREAST OF THE CHANNEL IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE, BUT WE'RE GETTING TO NEED TO REVISIT THIS DEBATE WHEN THAT MAGIC KEYBOARD CASE SHIPS IN MAY. SO THOSE ARE THE MAIN NEW CHANGES WITHIN THE MACBOOK AIR. I HAVE NEVER TESTED THE$1,000 BASE MODEL THAT TONS OF INDIVIDUALS ASKED ME ABOUT. BUT I FEEL PRETTY CONFIDENT THAT YOU SIMPLY SHOULD SPEND THE EXTRA $100 TO URGE THE QUAD-CORE I5 UPGRADE WHICH MOST PEOPLE SHOULD SPRING FOR THE $1,299 MODEL WITH THEI5 AND ADDITIONAL STORAGE IF YOU'LL AFFORD IT SINCE THESE LAPTOPS TEND TO STICK AROUND FOR A SHORT TIME.

AND THAT IS REALLY THE THING: FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SEVERAL YEARS, I FEEL CONFIDENT IN SAYING THAT THE MAJORITY PEOPLE WITHIN THE MARKETPLACE FOR A MAC LAPTOP CAN JUST BUY A MACBOOK AIR AND EXPECT IT TO COMPETENTLYAND RELIABLY DO MOST THINGS FOR AN EXTENDED TIME TO RETURN. THAT'S AN ENORMOUS WIN. JUST CONFIRM YOU EMPLOY SAFARI IF YOU WOULD LIKE THE BATTERY TO LAST. MAKING THIS VIDEO, FOR ME, WAS A PLEASANT DISTRACTION FROMTHE VIRUS NEWS CYCLE, AND THAT I HOPE IT HELPED YOU OUT A TOUCH BIT, TOO. THAT SAID, I WOULD LIKE TO CALL OUT THE WHOLE VERGE TEAM, PARTICULARLY THE VERGE SCIENCE TEAM. THEY'RE DOING AN ABSOLUTELY GREAT JOB COVERING THE CORONAVIRUS. CHECK IT OUT. IT'S VERGESCIENCE ON YOUTUBE. THAT'S THEIR CHANNEL. I HOPE YOU'RE STAYING SAFE, ANDI HOPE YOU'RE STAYING HOME.
