Reviews for the Apple MacBook Air 2020 i3

89.6% Apple MacBook Air 2020 Review: Is the Core i3 the better choice? | Notebookcheck
Apple equips the entry-level SKU of the MacBook Air with a dual-core processor, but is the performance still sufficient in 2020? Or should you get a configuration with a quad-core CPU? And: What are the effects on the temperatures and the fan noise?

With a cheaper entry price and an improved keyboard, the only thing against the excellence of the 2020 MacBook Air is its less-than-full-day battery life. Otherwise it’s the go-to laptop we’d recommend to most people.

The Apple MacBook Air 2020 is an excellent thin-and-light laptop, and this price cut makes it great value. Apple has fixed its key flaws, leaving only minor gripes behind.

The price tag is good and the keyboard is excellent. For those shopping at the low end, the 2020 MacBook Air is the true successor to the famous old Air, and the one you should buy today to replace your ageing old model. It also makes it a no-brainer choice for first-time or student MacBook buyers.

80% MacBook Air (2020) review

This year's MacBook Air fixes a lot of our complaints with previous models. It comes with new, more powerful, innards, a drastically improved keyboard and more storage space. However, the screen is a little muted and battery life is average. Still, if you're an Apple fan looking for an affordable MacBook, we can heartily recommend the new MacBook Air – something we've not been able to do with previous versions.

2020 MacBook Air vs. The Rest

My review of the 2020 MacBook Air against the MacBook Pro, XPS 13, HP Envy and Surface Laptop 3. It's great, but be aware of what you're actually getting with macOS.

Apple MacBook Air (2020) initial review: Keyboard dreams become a reality
Source: Pocket Lint English EN→zh-CN
The 2020 model takes what was great about its predecessor and enhances it with a much better keyboard, double storage as standard, and a price drop. It's a win-win.

Hands on: MacBook Air (2020) review
Source: Techradar English EN→zh-CN
As affordable MacBooks go, Apple seems to have focused well on what users will want - namely, a lower price tag. The performance and build quality seem pretty strong in our early tests, and only a slightly muted color reproduction from the screen muddies the waters. However, that's a small gripe, and overall it seems that Apple has iterated nicely for the MacBook Air 2020.

The classic MacBook Air makes some big improvements and even cuts the starting price, making it a hard-to-beat go-to for students, creatives and almost anyone else.

13.3":

大体上,这个屏幕尺寸常见于亚笔记本电脑,超极本和变形本中。对这三类产品来说这个尺寸都较大。亚笔记本中尺寸最大的机型是采用这个屏幕尺寸。

大尺寸可以让屏幕有更高的分辨率。因而例如字体等的细节将会更丰富。不过另一方面,小屏幕的功耗会较低,而设备也会更轻盈小巧,售价更低。
