As ultraportables go, the MacBook Air more often than not sits at the top of the heap. However, like most Apple products, it's been just out of reach of being affordable. Sure, it's been the cheapest MacBook you could get, but with a starting price of $1,099, that's not saying much.
That changes with the MacBook Air 2020. Starting at an unheard of $999 ($899 for education users, tested at $1,299), Apple is extending consumers' wallets a much-needed olive branch. But don't assume because it's cheaper, that Apple made any compromises. The laptop gets a host of new features including an Intel 10th Gen processor and the Magic Keyboard. This just might be the best MacBook Air yet.
