The new MacBook Air is a brilliant machine, for work or fun. In our MacBook Air (2020) review (opens in new tab), we said" "it's a hugely successful product, and it gets a really strong recommendation from us. It is not only the Mac that best suits most people, it's also one of the best laptop choices overall."
Its dual-core processor is powerful enough for most people's use, and thanks to Apple's use of extremely speedy flash storage, it feels incredibly fast in operation – it comes on from standby in a fraction of a second, and apps open immediately.
It has a fingerprint sensor for easy secure unlocking, and has a new microphone array for keeping your voice ultra-clear in conference calls. Its stereo speakers are surprisingly clear and powerful, too.
And, being a MacBook Air, it's really light and easy to carry around. It weighs 1.3kg, and having a 13-inch high-res screen means its footprint isn't too big.
One feature we love about the screen is that it has Apple's True Tone display tech, which shifts the colour balance of the screen to match the ambient lighting in the room, so that white on the screen matches what a what a white piece of paper looks like in the room. This is much easier on the eyes than the blue-toned screens we're used to, especially in the evenings.
