13" Macbook Air 2020 - M1 Chip
Apple's thinnest and lightest notebook, the MacBook Air, is now equipped with the M1 chip as standard. The 8-core CPU in the M1 not only delivers 3.5x the performance of the previous CPU, but also does so at just one tenth of the power. This allows the battery to last up to 18 hours, which is 6 hours longer than the previous generation MacBook Air.
The MacBook Air is now also completely silent. The fan has been removed, making the MacBook Air completely silent. Due to the efficiency of the new M1 chip, a fan is simply no longer necessary, even under high load. The Neural Engine in the M1 chip is also leveraged to make images from the FaceTime HD camera brighter and sharper.
Despite all these developments, the MacBook Air keeps the same price as its predecessor.
