In our MacBook Air M1 review, we gave this model a near-perfect score thanks to its outstanding performance, comfortable keyboard design, HD webcam, and surprisingly strong battery life. We're talking 14 hours and 44 minutes of endurance.

And although we weren't fans of its relatively thick bezels and lack of additional ports, overall, the MacBook Air 2020 is one of the best portable machines on the market right now. In fact, we went as far as stating that "the MacBook Air M1 has the speed and battery life to beat the best PCs."

The powerful M1 chip allowed the Air to score 5,962 on the Geekbench 5.1 (Intel) multicore test, which was practically in a dead-heat with the 5,925 from the M1 MacBook Pro. It also soundly beat the 5,084 from the ZenBook 13 and the 5,319 from the XPS 13 (both tested with the Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU and 16GB of RAM), on the comparable Geekbench 5.2 test.
