The 2020 MacBook Air
The 2020 MacBook Air uses the same redesigned magic keyboard that first introduced in the 16-inch MacBook Pro. The magic keyboard gets rid of the butterfly mechanism that Apple has been using since 2015, as it riddled with problems that have caused keys to fail due to dust and other small particles.
With more than 4 million pixels and a resolution of 1024×768, the MacBook Air display is bright and clear, with gorgeous images and clear text. A 720p FaceTime HD camera and three microphone units installed at the top of the show. The display maintains an authentic tone that matches the balance of the white screen with the ambient lighting in the room, resulting in a more natural viewing experience.
