Faster and better performance
The Apple M1 processor is specially designed for the Macbook. The processor is more energy efficient and much more powerful than the Intel processors that were previously in the old models. With this new power, heavy graphics programs such as Photoshop run very smoothly and you can easily handle multiple tasks at the same time. The Macbook Air can also be expanded up to 16 GB of RAM. With the industry-leading efficiency of the M1 chip, MacBook Air delivers stunning fanless performance. Now an aluminum heat spreader dissipates the heat the system generates, so no matter how intensive the task, this MacBook Air runs completely silently.
Mac OS Big Sur
The Macbook Air 2020 is equipped with the new operating system Mac OS Big Sur. It has been developed to exploit the full potential of the M1 processor. They work together to make the whole system run smoother. MacBook Air immediately wakes up from sleep. Everyday tasks from browsing photos to browsing Safari are faster. And your hardest-working apps all have access to the power they need. Along with a beautiful new design and industry-leading privacy features, it boasts best-in-class security.
Built-in security and privacy
A touch is all it takes to lock or unlock MacBook Air. Use your fingerprint to rent a movie, buy an app, or access things like secure documents or system settings without having to re-enter your password. And when you shop online with Apple Pay, Touch ID fills in your shipping and billing information without sharing your card information.
