MacBook Air 13″ i5 1.1 GHz Quad Core 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM - 2020

The Apple MacBook Air "Core i5" 1.1 13-Inch (Retina, Scissor Keyboard, 2020) model features a 10-nm 10th Generation "Ice Lake" 1.1 GHz Intel "Core i5" processor (1030NG7) with four independent processor "cores" on a single chip, a 6 MB shared level 3 cache, 16 GB of onboard 3733 MHz LPDDR4X SDRAM, 512 GB of onboard PCIe-based flash storage, and an "integrated" Intel Iris Plus graphics processor that shares system memory. Both the RAM and the SSD could be upgraded at the time of initial system purchase, but not subsequently.

This all is tucked in a thin wedge-shaped aluminum case with an integrated 720p "FaceTime HD" webcam, Touch ID, a new backlit "Magic Keyboard" with a "redesigned scissor mechanism", a large "Force Touch" trackpad, and a high-resolution 13.3" LED-backlit 2560x1600 (227 ppi) "Retina" display with True Tone technology.

The aluminum case is in silver, and weighs 2.8 pounds (1.29 kg). Apple estimates battery life at 11-12 hours depending on the task performed.

Connectivity includes 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, two Thunderbolt 3 ports (USB-C connector), and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Compared to its predecessor, the "2020" MacBook Air lineup looks practically the same and has the same "True Tone" display, but has a newer, significantly faster processor and architecture, more capable graphics, a new - more reliable - "Scissor Switch" keyboard, more default storage, and a lower starting price tag.



How does this new model compare to the previous version?
The 2020 MacBook Air features a new and improved keyboard for the 13.3" model, previously available on the 16" model. The refined scissor mechanism delivers responsive, quiet typing, while inverted-T arrow keys help to navigate lines of code, spreadsheets or games more easily. Additionally, backlit keys with a handy ambient light sensor help you type in low-light settings.

Thin, Light and Durable
Since Steve Jobs first pulled the original MacBook Air from a slim envelope, the MacBook Air has focused on delivering portability through its slim and light design. The 2020 MacBook Air 13.3-inch measures just 1.61cm at its deepest point and weighs an astonishing 1.29kg, making it ideal to take with you. The amazing portability of this machine is helped by the PCIe-based SSD. It doesn’t have any moving parts, which means it’s more reliable and quiet. Lightning fast, durable, silent - qualities that make sense in a laptop tasked with keeping up with you.

A Secure Option
Apple has incorporated Touch ID into the keyboard, as well as Apple’s state of the art T2 security chip. It also makes online shopping easier by using Apple Pay at checkout - just one touch and you’re done. This chip also means you can have Apple’s virtual assistant Siri to hand whenever you need her.

10th-Generation Intel Core i5
The tenth-generation Intel Core i5 processor will handle all of your day-to-day tasks, allowing you to multi-task and work on intensive applications without experiencing any lag. Running at a base speed of 1.1GHz with a Turbo Boost speed of 3.5GHz, this quad-core processor means applications run faster and more efficiently than before. So everything you normally do on a computer, including complex video editing, you can do even quicker.

All-Day Battery
MacBook Air 2020 features a large battery that works with the power-efficient 10th-generation Intel Core processor to last all day. You can expect up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge while watching iTunes films, or 11 hours of wireless web browsing. MacBook Air will also preserve its own battery life by entering standby mode after it’s been asleep for more than 3 hours, helping to conserve battery life for up to 30 days. You can even continue to receive new emails and calendar invitations while your MacBook’s asleep by enabling Power Nap.

Faster Connections
With 802.11ac Wi-Fi you’ll be able to connect to an 802.11ac router and experience wireless performance that’s up to 3 times faster than previous generations. Bluetooth will allow you to connect to Bluetooth enabled devices like speakers, headphones and other computers to stream and share files without wires. Two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports will allow you to connect peripheral items such as mice, printers or USB storage devices, also supporting charging, DisplayPort, and USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 devices

Additional information: manufacturers often update their Operating System (OS) software over the course of a device’s lifespan – this means that your product might ship with a more advanced OS than specified.
