Reviews for the Apple MacBook Air 2020 i7

Apple MacBook Air (2020) review: It's all about the keyboard
Source: Engadget English
After years without only minor updates to the MacBook Air, finally redesigned the super-thin laptop in 2018. Now they're back again with a major refresh. The ports and exterior haven't changed much, but this model ditches the contentious butterfly keyboard for a vastly improved typing experience, and is the first MacBook Air to offer an option quad-core CPU.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

In the laptop sector, Apple's market share was 9.3% in 2014 and 10.3% in 2016. The latter corresponds to the 5th place. In the smartphone segment, Apple achieved 15.3% in the first quarter of 2016, which means a market share loss when compared to the 18.3% in same quarter of the previous year.
Nevertheless, Apple ranked second place behind Samsung in both years.

There are tons of reviews on Apple laptops, smartphones and tablets. The ratings are significantly above-average (as of 2016).


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
