MacBook Air 2020 (MVH22) detailed description
MacBook Air (2020).
MacBook Air is one of the best affordable performance laptops in the market. It comes in a slim lightweight package that makes it highly portable. MacBook Air 2020 also comes with a brand new keyboard fixing the problem that the previous model had. And to help in environmental conservation, MacBook Air is made from 100% recycled aluminum. And although MacBook Air is a cheap laptop, it still more powerful than other laptops you can get at its price range.
The display is one of the most important features of a laptop. MacBook Air realizes this and that is why it comes with one of the best displays you can find on a laptop. The 13.3″ inch Retina Display with a 2560 x 1600 resolution with 4 million pixels lets you see breathtaking true-to-life colors as they naturally appear in nature. And with True Tone technology, the brightness levels are automatically adjusted to reflect the lighting around you for a better viewing experience in any environment. Not to forget that the display stretches almost from edge-to-edge to give a more fully immersive viewing angle.
MacBook Air may be a budget laptop but still gives other powerful laptops competition. MacBook Air comes with a 1.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with a Turbo Boost of up to 3.5GHz, with 6MB L3 cache. The processor works with an Intel Iris Graphics that enables you to play hard gaming titles, do graphic design, and edit your videos and audio with no lagging issues. With the help of an 8GB DDR4 RAM, you get to open and work on multiple apps at the same time multitasking at its best. The 512GB SSD fast internal storage stores all your data.
Improved Keyboard and TouchPad.
MacBook Air comes with an improved keyboard. The new Magic Keyboard comes with an improved scissor mechanism that provides 1mm travel between keys. This provides enough space for typing without hitting the wrong key accidentally because they keys are close together. The keyboard also comes with the inverted ‘T’ arrow keys that the previous model lacked and that were sorely missed. The keyboard also provides backlighting to help you type comfortably in dark settings.
MacBook Air comes with a new force TouchPad. The TouchPad comes with improved sensitivity to help in precision working. The TouchPad is also 20% larger to increase the surface area vital in conducting multitouch gestures efficiently.
Great Media Devices.
MacBook Air stereo speakers have been expertly tuned to provide the best sounds. The speakers are 25% louder which is great since you don’t have to place it close to hear what is being said and comes with 2X the bass. The FaceTime HD webcam ensures that when you chat with your friends, family, and acquittances you can see each other clearly. And with the 3 microphones, your get to be heard clearly with no distortion.
