Apple announced its Arm-based M1 silicon for Mac during the “One More Thing” event back in November last year. With it, it also announced the new M1-powered MacBook Air and Pro, both of which are available in Nepal. Here we will go through the specs, features, official price, and availability of the Apple MacBook Air (M1) in Nepal.
MacBook Air (M1) Overview:
Compared to its predecessor, the design of the MacBook Air has remained the same. Even the dimension and weight are identical. The biggest difference between the two is the use of M1 silicon in the MacBook Air 2020. With this Apple is claiming up to 3.5x faster performance, up to 5x faster graphics, and up to 9x faster Machine learning tasks. Similarly, the storage controller and the latest flash technology in the M1 also result in 2x SSD performance.
Here, MacBook Air has a fan-less design. Thus, the device will remain silent no matter what you do in it. With M1’s latest ISP, the MacBook Air will have better noise reduction, greater dynamic range, improved auto white balance, and ML-enhanced face detection.
Its 13.3″ Retina display supports P3 wide color and offers up to 400nits of brightness. As far as memory is concerned, Apple is offering up to 16GB of RAM and 2TB of SSD. The new MacBook Air 2020 supports Wi-Fi 6 along with Bluetooth 5.0. Users also get three USB Type-C ports (including one Thunderbolt 3 port) and a headphone jack. M1’s Secure Enclave powers the Touch ID which can be used to unlock the device and even online payment using Apple Pay. The battery endurance is now improved to offer up to 18 hours of battery life.
