Apple has just announced the MacBook Air 2020, it’s latest thin and light laptop that offers the power, design and build quality we’ve come to expect from Apple’s devices, but in a much more affordable package, compared to the MacBook Pro.
While the launch of the MacBook Air 2020 has come out of the blue, many of us were hoping for an updated version of the laptop this year, especially considering how much we liked the MacBook Air (2019) model.
The new MacBook Air 2020 comes with twice the performance, twice the storage and a new magic keyboard – addressing many of the issues we had with the previous model.
Best of all, it comes with a new lower price of $999 (£999, around AU$2,000), making it the cheapest MacBook Air released.
Cut to the chase
- What is it? The next MacBook Air
- When is it out? Available to order right now, in stores March 23 2020
- What will it cost? $999 (£999, around AU$2,000)
MacBook Air 2020 release date
During the announcement, Apple revealed that the MacBook Air 2020 is available to order right now from the Apple Store.
It will also be available in stores from March 23. However, with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Apple Stores around the world are currently closed. We also don’t know if the pandemic will lead to shipping delays, so while the MacBook Air 2020 is currently available to buy, we’re not sure when it will arrive in your hands. We’ve asked Apple for clarification on this issue and will update when we hear back.
