The new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro (M1, 2020) are probably among the best laptops you can buy this year. Talking about the MacBook Air, this new device is powered by the revolutionary ARM-based Apple M1 chip (ditched Intel for this new laptop), which is a stunning achievement. MacBook Air is a thin and light laptop that offers great performance, even with 4K video editing, while also giving incredible battery life. Easily managing over 11 hours on a single charge, this is a laptop you can easily carry around with you at work or school and is suitable for basic users to the professionals.
