Apple succeeded in selling 5.5 million units worldwide in Q3 2020 alone. Apple’s policy of introducing newer models of Macs every year has helped them to maintain considerable sales. In November 2020, the company introduced three new Macs- MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini, powered by the new macOS11 and SoC hardware.

The following write-up discusses the attractive features of the Apple MacBook Air, which is the best-selling and most popular model in Apple’s Mac range presently.

What are the top features of the new MacBook Air?

Apple’s silicone (M1)

Also known as Apple’s M1, it is a custom System-on-chip and packs an 8-core CPU made of 4 efficiency and performance cores. Moreover, it has an 8-core GPU and a 16-core Neural Engine. The basic model features 8GB worth of unified memory and 512GB SSD. Customers also have the option to purchase a model sporting 16GB RAM and 2TB SSD.

MacOS 11 Big Sur

The new OS update has introduced cosmetic changes to the floating dock, window design, new sounds, icons and window dressings etc. Safari and Messages app has been updated, and Control Centre added as a new feature. iPhone/iPad apps are now available on the Mac App Store.

Retina display

The new Apple MacBook Air has a 13.3-inch “Retina” display with a resolution of 2560×1600, making the display very sharp at 227 pixels per inch. In terms of colour accuracy, it offers a DCI-P3 wide colour gamut.

Design

Its design is almost the same as its predecessors, featuring an “iconic” look with a premium aluminium unibody. The build quality is also outstanding as one can seamlessly open and close the device.

Magic keyboard

Apple addressed the complaints of earlier models and changed the keys to “scissor” switches. The new keyboard offers a superior typing experience with dedicated keyboard brightness keys and keys for Spotlight, Dictation and Do Not Disturb. It also has a fast and accurate fingerprint reader near the F12 key and a Force Touch trackpad to make navigation easy.

Connectivity features

Apple has used the latest connectivity technologies like USB4, which delivers up to 40 GBPS and Thunderbolt 3, which can connect to devices like 4K monitors and external GPU towers. However, there are only two Thunderbolt 3/USB 4 ports and one 3.5 mm headphone jack. It does have the newest Wi-Fi 6 with a 10 GBPS maximum speed.

Fanless operation

First among laptops, the Apple MacBook Air has no cooling fans as it can remain cool even at peak performance levels, thanks to its all-aluminium design. This results in a quiet and peaceful experience for the user.

Camera

It features a 720p HD camera.

Audio

It has the latest audio set-up with a three-mic array and Dolby Atmos Playback.

Battery

The new MacBook Air has significant battery life. It supports 15 hours of wireless web browsing and 18 hours of battery life for video playback.

The new Apple MacBook Air may be too pricey for a section of consumers, costing anywhere between Rs.90000 and Rs.95000. However, buying a MacBook is a good investment unless you only want to go for a mid-tier laptop like a Windows i5 laptop.

Acquiring such expensive items is simple with a No Cost EMI facility for Bajaj Finserv EMI Network Card, which offers you pre-approved loans of up to Rs.2 lakh. Buying from the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store has additional benefits, including same-day deliveries tato specific locations and addresses.

Thus, owning a MacBook Air is no longer an impossible dream. Easy financing solutions ensure the affordability of such premium models.
