Should You Consider the Cheapest MacBook Air for Your Work?
Despite coming in at under $1,000, the cheapest 2020 MacBook Air still offers some advanced features that can make it a great option for photographers on the go who want a portable work laptop without lots of bulk. This great video takes a look at the laptop and what you can expect from it.
Coming to you from 9 to 5 Mac, this video takes a look at the cheapest model of the MacBook Air. At just 2.8 lbs and with 11 hours of battery life, the MacBook Air remains one of the most portable devices that can offer all-day battery life without adding much bulk to your setup. In addition to that light footprint, it comes with a 1.1 GHz 10th generation Intel Core i3 dual-core processor with boost to 3.2 GHz, 8 GB of 3,733 MHz LPDDR4X RAM, and a 256 GB SSD. The 13.3″ screen is a Retina display with 2,560 by 1,600 resolution. It also includes True Tone technology, which automatically adjusts white balance to the ambient light (I have this in my iPad Pro and really enjoy it). The MacBook Air also supports external GPUs for more intense work. The Air also comes with a redesigned backlit keyboard and a large trackpad. Altogether, as long as you aren’t doing ultra-intensive work, this version could be a great option, and if you need more power, you can upgrade to 16 GB of RAM and an i7 processor for $450, with an i5 option in-between.
