  1. Thank you for the keys test, and without talking. Funny thing, I enjoy typing on my MBA and MBP butterfly keys, but the reliability issues gives me some concern. And I too am no fan of that touch bar on my macbook pro 15'.

  2. Wait a minute, if you look closely at 2:30, on the MacBook air screen shows some dude talking with the new iPad Pro with the magic keyboard. But this video released at march 26 2020. As I write this comment, the verge just uploaded the review of the new magic keyboard for the new iPad pro. Hmm.. strange.

  3. In you opinion if I were to go with the quad core I-77 model with 16gb of RAM, is this sufficient for grad school? Will be doing Physicians Assistant studies. Looking forward to hearing back

  4. What should I buy between :
    – MBPro 2019, i5, 8Go RAM, 256 Go SSD
    – MBAir 2020, i5, 16 Go RAM, 256 Go SSD

    (Don't pay attention to the price)
    My uses are : streaming, word, excel and few videos editing with iMovie.
    I want upgrade the RAM of the MBA because I use an extern monitor and open a lot of tabs.
    But if I choose the Air, is it better to upgrade the RAM or the SSD ?

  5. I received one a few weeks back for my birthday coming a few weeks in the future.
    It was easy to set up and transfer everything over.

    I do feel like I was using dinosaur prior to my Airs arrival.
    I never asked for this machine, never investigated it and I was happy to plod along with my HP laptop and a Chromebook; now that I have it I am glad my partner felt I needed it.

    My only problem is; I use Chrome and Safari fights Chrome to access my email and Safari mail will try to open and slide across the screen trying to load at any time regardless of what I am using.
    So far no success in stopping this and I ignore it.

  6. i still am using my 2013 15 inch macbook pro won't upgrade till they release one with a 120hz display it will happen eventually.

  7. Somebody got experience in using Logic Pro X plus some plugins at the MB Air 2020? I think the cooling system will be the bottleneck…?

  8. The MB air 2020 is a dissapointment because of the following reasons
    1. Bad thermals even when running basic apps like chrome with mutiple windows, running 4k videos etc. Temp going up till 100 degrees celsius
    2. If someone pays extra money for the upgraded versions the amount of extra power isnt much as compared to the macbook pro 13 inch from last year
    3. The performance is not great even on heavy video editing apps because of BAD THERMALS!!
    Only and only if apple had worked on the coolers in this laptop, this could have been a record seller macbook air like the ones in 2013-2017 macbook air.

  9. I had a MacBook Pro and now I have the new MacBook Air the one this man is this video has the only think I whant to know is why does it not have w disk drive or a SuperDrive?

  10. Hey i am an app developer is macbook air suitable for running flutter and doing multi tasking at same time like solving bugs,errors please make a video on this it would be helpful
