The Apple MacBook Air "Core i3" 1.1 13-Inch (Retina, Scissor Keyboard, 2020) model features a 10-nm 10th Generation "Ice Lake" 1.1 GHz Intel "Core i3" processor (1000NG4) with two independent processor "cores" on a single chip, a 4 MB shared level 3 cache, 8 GB of onboard 3733 MHz LPDDR4X SDRAM, 256 GB of onboard PCIe-based flash storage, and an "integrated" Intel Iris Plus graphics processor that shares system memory.
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 was available in three color options -- gold (pictured, left), silver, and a darker "Space Gray" (but not other colors) 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.
