What is this ultraportable from Apple?

The 2020 13.3-inch MacBook Air features Apple's in-house M1 chip, coupled with 8 GB of RAM. Even if it is starting to date, especially since the arrival of the M4 chip, the Soc M1 remains effective for most tasks. The ultraportable is very suitable for work or study. For more demanding professional projects, the 15″ MacBook Air with the M2 chip, or the new MacBook Air with the M3 chip will surely be more suitable, but much more expensive.

The laptop has ideal dimensions of 30.41 × 21.24 × 1.61 cm for a weight of 1.29 kg. It is easy to transport and its aluminum chassis provides a good feeling of solidity. Once opened, the Magic Keyboard offers precise, comfortable typing that's well suited for quick note-taking, and comes with a comfortable trackpad.

Is this MacBook Air M1 a good deal?

At less than €800, the MacBook Air M1 is a great deal for a high-performance and practical everyday laptop. Its 13.3-inch Retina screen with a definition of 2,560 × 1,600 pixels offers very good brightness, but slightly lower contrast. The wide borders are also starting to look a little dated, but don't spoil the good user experience. The Apple laptop can even be used outdoors, thanks to the effective anti-reflective filter.

Autonomy level, count between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., depending on your use. Finally, note that the MacBook Air M1 is very quiet and practically does not heat up.
