MacBook Air (2020) Review: One Month Later

April 12, 2020

Ian Cutress of AnandTech joins me to talk MacBook Air thermals! The new MacBook Air, an update the the 2018 redesign, got pretty good reviews when it came out a month ago. People liked the new keyboard, the new chipsets, and the lower price. But, there were a few criticisms as well. Basically, the still low-res webcam, some concerns about thermal throttling on the faster CPUs, and the battery life. Since then, Iโ€™ve had time to pound on the Magic keys, compare the web cam to pretty much everything else I have, really dig into the thermals, and thereโ€™s even been a macOS Catalina supplemental update. So, what if any difference does a month make? SPONSOR: Brilliant Go to and sign up for free. The first 200 of you who go to this link will get 20% your annual Brilliant subscription.
